Was it issued by Valerie Jarrett?
Betteridgee’s law of headlines
What does that have to do with the article? Neither the article’s nor Rand’s headlines are applicable to that “law.”
Read the article and then offer your criticisms based on the content. It shouldn’t be that hard for you to come up with a defense…
It applies just as well to the text of Rand’s post. The question mark is there because even Rand won’t stand behind this ridiculous charge.
The article doesn’t establish that there even was a stand-down order, much less that it was given by Valerie Jarrett. Some of the supporting evidence is laughable, such as the idea that Obama told Edward Klein that he runs all of his decisions by Jarrett. I’d be astonished if Obama ever gave an interview to Klein, Klein is a renown fabulist (e.g. his contention that Chelsea Clinton was a product of rape), and even so, the statement doesn’t support the thesis: even if run by Jarrett, Obama’s decisions are Obama’s decisions.
It’s been established that there was no stand down order. As one of the generals explained, a stand down order is when you tell the soldiers to do nothing, whereas in Benghazi the soldiers were order to abandon their rescue plans and to instead greet any potential survivors at the Tripoli airport.
So to be clear, “Clean the barracks” is not a stand down order, it’s an order to clean the barracks, and people shouldn’t throw such a scurrilous and incorrect rumor about.
