Hillary Clinton decided that the best defense was to be offensive. First, the clip:
What difference does it make at this point, you ask?
- If you truly want to prevent further deaths, Hillary, you must first understand what went wrong in Benghazi.
- The American people deserve straight answers from their government. You work for us, lady. Don’t get all huffy when pressed to explain the blatant BS you spewed to protect Obama before the election.
- Choke up all you want about the four dead Americans, but we know your State Department denied requests to secure the consulate. You have blood on your hands. Tears, sincere or fake, won’t wash it away.
The Clintons both have brass balls and an excess of gall. It would nice if the GOP stopped bringing a water pistol to a knife fight.
Jim Geraghty sums up the gloomy meaning of it all:
When we look at how our government has responded to the night of September 11 in Benghazi, Libya, we see there are truly no standards any more.
If the decision making before, during, and after the Benghazi attack is insufficient to get anyone fired, what decision in government will ever warrant that consequence?
If Democrats on Capitol Hill can’t take off their partisan blinders for one day to attempt to hold people accountable for decision-making that resulted in American deaths at the hands of extremists, and then lying to the public about it, then when will they ever?
If Hillary Clinton can exclaim that it doesn’t matter that the administration spent five days talking about a video when the video had nothing to do with it, and everyone on her side applauds, why should she or anyone else ever respond to an accusation with anything but audacious defiance?
This is it, folks. This is the government we have, and the lack of a public outcry about Benghazi ensures this is the government we will have for the foreseeable future.
