Secretary Clinton was on the hotseat last week and I noted one part of the exchange in particular:
Excerpts: Heated Exchanges at Benghazi Hearing - Washington Wire - WSJ: "SEC. CLINTON: 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.
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 to the best information. The IC has a process, I understand, going with the other committees to explain how these talking points came out. 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."
She says: "What difference does it make?" and immediately afterward "it's our job to figure out what happened?" This goes on completely unquestioned by anyone in the media. Nothing. Rather they focus on her crocodile tears and oh so passionate anger. The woman gives not one whit for anything save her own political power and political fortune. Rand Paul was right. She should have been summarily fired and shamed. Instead she's lauded and celebrated. In another time she never would have been put in a position for which she is not qualified. In another time, she would have refused such a post. In another time, anyone responsible for such an abject and ongoing failure would have resigned in disgrace.Posted by Duffy at January 28, 2013 01:37 PM | TrackBack
