Hillary Clinton on Benghazi

Hillary Clinton goes on a wonderful war path with Republicans that scold her and tell her that she did a terrible job on this Benghazi Situation.

Hillary Clinton fires back–

Shouting and gesturing with her arms in frustration, Clinton shoots back: “With all due respect, the fact is we had four dead Americans. Was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk one night decided they’d go kill some Americans?”

Her fists shaking, she continued: “What difference, at this point, does it make? It is our job to figure out what happened and do everything we can to prevent it from ever happening again, senator.”

It wasn’t an easy meeting to sit through, let alone being in that hot seat like Hillary was. Republicans are attacking Democrats and issues that really don’t matter. I am not saying that 4 Americans should be excuse-able. I am confused that they will attack things hard when they can  point the finger but they will never reach out with that  finger to help. This goes for most democrats as well. I think every politician should take a look in the mirror and ask themselves some hard questions of why and how they are going to better America

  1. Its nothing but poltiics. The Benghazi attack occurred during an election and the administration got something incorrect. It really didn’t matter what was incorrect, just that something was incorrect so they could harp on it. The only point was to try and weaken Obama’s campaign. Now they are dragging it out because they need to maintain consistency.

    But also at the time it was thought there was a protest at the Benghazi consulate. I actually wrote a paper on “The Innocence of Muslims”, the Benghazi attack and the Cairo protests along with all the protests that erupted in response. In doing this I spent an inordinate amount of time reading news articles, specifically the earliest new articles. My focus was on Sept 11 – 15 and I primarily read articles that were published at that time. The simple fact is most thought that there was a protest there. That is reported by NPR, AP, NY Times, Al Jazeera, Al Arabiya, Egypt Independent and more. This was the information available in the first days. In fact I spent many hours trying to find out when the protest started in Benghazi and how many people were involved as I had done for the Cairo incident. Though most sources said there were protestors or rioters in Benghazi none could give an account of the number or when it started.

    It is unfortunate that politicians would rather spend their time worry about Benghazi than say trying to deal with the economy or the debt or any of the truly important things this country needs.

  2. Actually, it makes a lot of difference why it happened. When the Administration puts out a false talking point, and deceives the American public about why it happened, and fails to take responsibility for not protecting our embassy, it matters a great deal.

    Don’t be fooled by a clearly prepared and staged act of mock rage. Hillary did it for cameras, not because she believes it.
