Disgusting: Katty Kay Blames 'Fallible' Ambassador Stevens For Own Death, Lets Hillary Off Hook

In a disgusting display of just how far the liberal media will go to preserve Hillary Clinton's presidential prospects, Katty Kay has blamed Ambassador Chris Stevens for his own death, while letting Hillary off the hook.

On today's Morning Joe, the BBC's Kay called the newly-released Senate report on the Benghazi attack "sad" because it showed that Stevens was "fallible." Kay claimed that "he didn't ask for and even rejected some of the security he might have had." This flies in the face of the report's findings that "State, then under Hillary Clinton, refused requests to boost security despite warnings from the CIA and its own staff about the danger of militant attacks."

There really are no words to describe what Katty Kay did in seeking to shift blame away from Hillary and onto a brave ambassador who because of Clinton's neglect is not here to defend himself.  But let's try "contemptible" for starters.  

Scarborough threw it to Kay after suggesting Hillary was to blame for failing to respond to cables from Stevens asking for more security.
 

JOE SCARBOROUGH: [Libya] was just a rat's nest of terrorists in and out. There was anarchy across the country and if you're Secretary Clinton and you get cables from the ambassador saying we need additional security, you know, you act on that. It's not like it's just another outpost. It's like one of the hottest outposts out there. I think that is a fair criticism and I don't know that Hillary Clinton ever answered that.

KATTY KAY: Yeah. I mean I think there's [sic] always been two important points about this story and neither of them frankly are [sic] political. One is the intelligence. Why did U.S. intelligence analysts miss what was clearly a buildup of insecurity in Benghazi? The British ambassador for example had been targeted in his car just before the attack on the U.S. compound. We knew that this was becoming increasely volatile. And the other was the security issue. Why were outposts in an area, as you suggest, that was difficult, where the Americans had just completed a war. Why were they not properly defended? And this report in a way is very sad because Chris Stevens, who was the ambassador who was killed who was clearly a brave and honorable man, was also fallible, and perhaps didn't ask for, rejected even, some of the security that he might have had.
