Hillary Clinton On Benghazi: I Do Feel Responsible
She says Ambassador Susan Rice did nothing wrong.
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton testified before congress for the first time since the September 11 attacks in Benghazi. The attacks left four Americans dead and the State Department under scrutiny as many politicians cited “deficiencies and inadequacies” as the cause. Clinton conceded on some of the accusations, pledging to make sure the Department has the resources it needs to reduce the risks in the future.
At times, Clinton got emotional, remembering hugging the wives, husbands, and children of those killed in the attacks. She spoke tearfully of having “stood next to President Obama as the Marines [who] carried those flag-draped caskets off the plane at Andrews.” There was a brief heated moment when Ambassador Susan Rice was brought up. She vehemently defended the ambassador’s remarks, attesting that she did not knowingly mislead the people. Before she steps down in the coming months, she said the department’s efficacy and operational capabilities will be improved. (CBS News)
