Say what you will about Hillary Clinton, she has distinguished
herself beyond any American woman. The latest hue and cry
about what happened in Benghazi is all about sour grapes
politics, not a need to know. Ms. Clinton acquitted herself
well in committee hearings, even after illness and a blood clot.
I wonder how well the posturing republicans grilling her would
have done under the same circumstances.
There was misinformation, speculation, miscommunication
surrounding the murder of Ambassador Stevens and three
others, especially during the week after the incident. So what?
Accuracy in reporting seldom occurs immediately after horrific
events, not surprising. I AM surprised whenever we do get the
actual facts from parts of the world in chaos. Why didn't the
Ambassador and the others just leave the embassy days
before? Surely they knew just how dicey the situation was.
Sen. Johnson, all puffed up in righteous indignation, really was
no match for Hillary, who batted back right at him. Certain
republicans, still smarting from recent election defeats,
apparently decided to tackle Ms. Clinton over Benghazi--
Tsk, tsk. Sour grapes behavior, so unattractive.
