What difference does this make?

Clinton herself acknowledges in this article that there are still unanswered questions regarding Benghazi. That in itself rightfully explains why some in Washington are still trying to get to the bottom of the attack... why it happened and why the lack of appropriate response from the United States government.

It's very telling that to this day... over a year and a half later... that there is still not a single arrest of anyone responsible for the deadly attack. Obama promised on the day after the attacks, that the perpetrators would soon all be brought to justice. And yet, not a single one has. Why not?

Given those facts, it's not difficult to understand why many people still look for important answers. Those answers will be telling of what kind of national leader Clinton would be. And since she will likely be the Democratic nominee, getting to the bottom of this tragedy is even more vitally important... except to those who still have something to hide. I sincerely hope Clinton doesn't.

So yes, Hillary, it does make a difference. A very important difference.

Isn't is interesting that Hillary says she will not get into a political slugfest on the backs of dead Americans. That is about all her and the Democrat Party has done with regards to their criticisms of the Bush Administration and the wars.

Fact: 4 Americans were brutally murdered in Benghazi and the President is primarily responsible for that.

Why? Because, contrary to public opinion, the President's first and foremost responsibility is the SAFETY of all Americans everywhere. No, it's not to give the poor a phone or to endlessly extend unemployment benefits or to expand the food stamp program. Safety is job number one. As Secretary of State, next in responsbility is Clinton.

Period.

Duck. Dodge. Bob. Weave. Deflect.

Doesn't matter. Someday you're going to answer the mail on why you two dropped the ball.

"What difference does this make"
None, actually nothing. You are right. The 30% that hate her will still hate her and the 50% that love her will still love her. She's actually going to be able to use the GOP attack to prop up her image. More than likely, she's the next POTUS.

FT,

She made up a story of being shot at,-being under gun fire, in Bosnia.

Wasn't true!

And 50% loves her?

She may become the next president.

This has nothing to do with hate, but wanting honest, upright people for leaders.

Too bad the American people excepts less then honest people for leaders.

Funny that she seems to want to hang her excuse hat on the fact that there "may" have been some angry people out there attacking the consolate because of that internet film. Especially when one considers the fact that this attack happened on September 11. Not very likely. However I suppose that if she does run for President she might, as a campaign ad, find some Libyan to do a promo for her saying that he did attack the consolate that night because of how mad he was at America for that film. And he can end his endorsement by saying "vote for Hillary".

Hillary Clinton is nothing more than Obama version 2. If you like Barack you will love Hillary. Same ole same ole. Corruption combined with incompetence combined with radical socialist ideology. I have no doubt this dim-witted country will vote for Hillary just like they did for Barack in 2016. America's best days are behind us...way behind us.

Hey "A guy with a brain."

"the President's first and foremost responsibility is the SAFETY of all Americans everywhere"

Exactly.

And you don't see terrorists knocking over tall buildings on Obama's watch do you? . . . With how many thousands of civilian lives lost? That only happens during Republican administrations.

And you didn't see him send thousands of troops into harms way unnecessarily either, did you? You didn't see over four THOUSAND American service members killed for no good purpose and thousands incurring traumatic brain injuries who will need care for life.

"the President's first and foremost responsibility is the SAFETY of all Americans everywhere"

So why would anyone vote for a Republican to be President?

@ Gary O:

Most major terrorist attacks take years to plan, prepare for and implement. As such, it's entirely possible, and even probable that the original 9/11 attack plans were started during the Clinton administration. But your continued political bias won't allow you to see nor admit that.

You forgot to address the tragedy this article is all about... the second 9/11 attack in Benghazi which entirely took place under Obama's watch and cost innocent American lives.

You also forgot that a majority of democrat Congressmen voted for the Iraq war which you are alluding to... including Hillary Clinton, the next democrat presidential nominee.

You also forgot that a president's administration is also responsible for the economic well-being of our country. So far, Obama's administration is laying an egg in that department. Average household income has dropped a double-digit percentage since Obama took office. And the USA now has the highest business taxes in the world, which is stifling economic development.

You also forgot to mention that Obamacare is in process of ruining our previous status as the best medical provider in the world.

There are many reasons to vote Republican!

Hey Objectified –

“ . . . it's entirely possible, and even probable that the original 9/11 attack plans were started during the Clinton administration.

Yes, it’s probable the attack was being planned years earlier, when the Republicans were riveting the nation’s attention on Clinton’s trivial dalliance with Monical Lewinsky, instead of focusing on terrorism.

GW and his “Conservative” geniuses in his administration had more than enough time to recognize and thwart the attack (GW was in his 9th month as President). But the Republicans couldn’t get their act together long enough to actually do their duty and protect the nation

And Yes “ . . . a majority of democrat Congressmen voted for the Iraq war . . .” after the administration lied to them and the nation about Iraq having WMD’s ready to devastate us.

“ . . . a president's administration is also responsible for the economic well-being of our country.” Yes, Clinton left GW with a history of balanced budgets and a healthy economy, and Bush left Obama with complete devastation.

And before the ACA, the US was ranked number 37 in health care by the World Health Organization.

Why would anyone ever vote GOP?

The democrat minions will follow her lock in step. They will never dare ask questions of their leaders. It's something liberals preach, but, refuse to practice on their own rank and file.

Why would anyone join the military with democrats in control or any foreign service? The fact of the matter is, the democrats are made up of leadership from the hippie era. They believed in making love, doing drugs but not war. They freely had any partner and actually believed they could live off the excess of society. For some reason, enough voters were brainwashed into this poverty making philosophy and actually thought it would work. Now as our nation crumbles and builds up debt, the only thing democrats say is "forward".

I'm just hoping that a decent candidate comes through on the GOP side that is worth voting for. Lately they believed that they need to stoop to the levels of the digressive movement. Time to get real leaders that actually care about the country. But, that is rare and hard to find. That is for all political parties.
