Second, I checked the references to the times involved, and unless somebody really screwed up in a major way, then there is a genuine time discrepancy. In the government's own records, not just according to some bozo reporter out to make a name for herself.
But what does the time of death of two seal team members have to do with the time of death of a state department official?
Here are the facts. The assault in Benghazi began at 9:40pm local time on 9/11. Smith was known to have been dead by 11:40pm local time. From that we can assume he is likely the state department official mentioned by Ms. Clinton. An AP report quoting Ms. Clinton at 4:58am on 9/12 noting the death and discussing the attack would be perfectly normal as far as a timeline goes. The Seals were killed at about 5:15am on 9/12 during a second attack, not the first and it is unrelated to the AP story or Ms. Clinton's statements.
