Hillary Shows Two Faces in Benghazi Testimony

Benghazi, in Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s own words (emphasis added):

Overview: “As I have said many times, I take responsibility.”

On Benghazi security: “With specific security requests they didn’t come to me. I had no knowledge of them.

On Administration’s blaming of a YouTube video: “We had four dead Americans. Was it because of a protest or because of guys out for a walk one night and decided to go kill some Americans? At this point what difference does it make, Senator?”

On Libyan security forces: “We sent teams out, both civilian and military experts to try to help them. What I found with the Libyans was willingness, but not capacity.”

On funding for security: “Currently, the House has holds on bilateral security assistance, on other kinds of support for anti-terrorism assistance.”

On the review board report: “I am the secretary of state and the (Accountability Review Board) made very clear that the level of responsibility for the failures that they outlined was set at the assistant secretary level and below.”

On continued questions: “The reason we put into effect an accountability review board is to take it out of the heat of politics and partisanship and accusations.”

In summary:I believe in taking responsibility and I have done so.”

News item, same day as testimony: “Washington (CNN) – More than four years after suspending her 2008 presidential bid, now-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has finally paid off her campaign debt.”

‘Nuff said.
