Just the other day, Glenn Beck was complaining that there is some coordinated effort under way to label him a conspiracy theorist … which was, itself, part of some conspiracy.
Last night, on his television program, Beck perfectly demonstrated just why he has developed this reputation.
For months, Beck has been claiming that President Obama was nowhere to be seen on the night of the Benghazi attack, oscillating between speculating that the president was intentionally being kept out of the loop or that he was operating off-the-record in order to conceal the truth about what was really going on.
Last night, citing a theory put forth by Charles Krauthammer, Beck said that the only phone call President Obama made that night was to the State Department in order to coordinate the message that the attack was motivated by an anti-Islam video posted on YouTube.
Beck went on to wonder if Obama has kept a personal Blackberry so that he can operate off-the-grid and not have to use White House equipment and leave any sort of recored, which then compelled him to ask “is [Obama] the origin of the video? Who was the origin of that video? Can we get the records of the Blackberry?”
