Clinton takes on Benghazi critics, warns of more security threats

Clinton's heated exchange over Benghazi
Quote:
"As I have said many times since September 11, I take responsibility," Clinton told the Senate Foreign Relations Committee at the first of two long-anticipated congressional hearings on the attack that became a major issue in the November presidential election.
Quote:
Sen. Ron Johnson, a tea party backed Wisconsin Republican serving his first term, persistently questioned Clinton about what he called Rice's "purposely misleading" the American people.

"We were misled that there were supposedly protests and something sprang out of that, an assault sprang out of that and that was easily ascertained that that was not the fact," Johnson said, adding that "the American people could have known that within days."

Shouting and gesturing with her arms in frustration, Clinton shot 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."

Note to Republicans: Election is over, Obama won, shelve that vacuous "Benghazigate Conspiracy" smear, act like serious legislators rather than political hatchet men.

Yes, there ARE some real and serious issues surrounding the Banghazi attack, but some vague "conspiracy to mislead" or whatever is not one of them and only saps Republican credibility to try to beat that stuffed dead horse-looking theme.

Rand Paul came out looking like a real piece of shlt after this republican hysteria-fuelled debacle.

Interesting closing statement on the first video...

"In my perspective less important today, looking backwards, as to why these militants decided they did it, then to find them and bring them to justice, and then maybe we'll figure out what was going on in the meantime."

Sound familiar?

Here's the GOP stategy.

1. Eliminate Hillary's chance to run in 2016.

2. Make the Banghazi attack stick to Obama and proceed with impeachment hearings on him.

3. If impeachment doesn't work then assasinate him.

I've seen this movie before.

60 US citizens died in attacks on US embassies during the Bush years, but we never heard jack shlt from the republican thugs about those deaths.

Suddenly, they're concerned about dead Americans. The hypocrisy is mind-boggling.

It was during election season. Note the lack of outrage on the Americans killed in Algeria?

Clinton "what difference does it make?"

It makes a HUGE difference Hilary. If all logic points to a terrorist attack and your organization offered the "protest" line for two weeks, that's the white house LYING to the american people.

I honestly think part of the point you are missing is that we were lied to. Go ahead lair, compare Iraq to this all you want, I have proven time and time again both sides of the aisle contributed to Iraq. The fake protest, the false blame on a video, only to be retracted is BS.

I want our leaders to held accountable for lies, false information and bad decisions. That is all. I hate the fact that Bush went into Iraq, and created a war for nothing based off of bad information and the agenda pushed by both sides of the aisle. He should have to pay for that, but he won't, just like Big O won't for this, or any other issue/policy he is going after.

Accepting lies from our government, even of from your favorite sports team... Retarded and immature.

Assassination of Obama is in the plans? You're a horrible racist fool

And what difference would it make had it been classified as a terrorist attack?

What difference? Seriously?

What difference would it make it our government DIDN'T lie to us?

An immense difference. If the administration had been honest from the get-go, we wouldn't be having this discussion. Instead they lied to the American people in hopes of skating by the issue and making it a non-issue for Obama's reelection campaign. But when you come from Chicago politics, I suppose honesty isn't top of mind.

Anyone pushing the "what's the difference what the reason was" agenda is either really stupid, or really biased.

Algeria was a terrorist attack on a privately held company that killed hostages from 4 different countries.

Benghazi was a terrorist attack on a US diplomatic post with strictly American casualties. Pretty substantial difference.
