Quote of the day

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 who decided they’d go kill some Americans? 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. Now, honestly, I will do my best to answer your questions about this. But the fact is that people were trying in real time to get the best information….But, you know, to be clear, it is, from my perspective, less important today looking backwards as to why these militants decided they did it than to find them and bring them to justice, and then maybe we’ll figure out what was going on in the meantime.

– Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, testifying before a Senate hearing regarding the September 11, 2012 deaths of four Americans in Benghazi, Libya, and responding to an argument from Senator Ron Johnson (R-WI) about who knew what when on that day.

    I am sure Hillary doesn’t want to “look back”. If I were her I wouldn’t either

      I agree, but I can’t help but agree with her sentiment. The question was based on what at this point is mostly a semantic argument and deviates from the important issues, in an effort to detract attention by criticizing Clinton, and through her damaging the administration.
