Colbert Mocks Fox Reaction To Benghazi Arrest: ‘Sadly, Hillary Clinton Remains At Large’ [Video]

The Colbert Report host Stephen Colbert mocked Fox News’ hypocritical reaction to the arrest of alleged Benghazi mastermind Ahmed Abu Khattala, noting that the network complained for months that the Obama administration had not apprehended him — then immediately pivoted to complaining that he hadn’t been captured quickly enough.

“Yes, we must bring those responsible for Benghazi to justice,” Colbert said, echoing the “fair and balanced” network. “Sadly, Hillary Clinton remains at large.”

“It is going to take more than what we demanded to satisfy us,” he added. “President Bush did not wait 642 days to catch bin Laden. If he couldn’t catch him right away, he wasn’t going to catch him at all. That’s called having some pride!”
