Brit Hume, Former Dem Rep. Clash Over New Benghazi Email (VIDEO)

Fox political analyst Brit Hume and Former Rep. Jane Harman (D-CA) on Sunday argued over the Benghazi attack and the significance of the email from White House official Ben Rhodes, which was released this week.

“This was an intelligence failure, but it wasn’t a conspiracy,” Harman said on “Fox News Sunday” about the way the administration handled the aftermath of the attack. “And there aren’t aliens in Area 51, and Vince Foster wasn’t murdered. And it’s time to move on, and focus on the real problems in Libya.”

“You’re right, there wasn’t a conspiracy in the United States to mount the Benghazi attack,” Hume responded. “The question was, in the aftermath of the attack, when the administration sent its U.N. ambassador out to explain it to everybody — and she did so falsely — that there wasn’t a conspiracy to create the false talking points she used.”

Harman then responded by saying that she doesn’t believe there was a plot to alter the talking points about the attack either.

“Well, how did it happen?” Hume probed.

“My view is, having been around at the time, that this was not deliberately misleading,” Harman answered.
