Clinton on Benghazi: “What Difference Would It Make?”

Ms. Clinton seems to be losing her cool before Congress on Benghazi. Key word — seems. Remember the campaign trail tears? Testifying before a Senate committee this morning, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton responded to Senator Ron Johnson’s inquiry about the cause of the attack on Benghazi with an adamnant and passionate, “What difference would it make?” Johnson had been asking her about the Administration’s blaming the attack on a You Tube video that allegedly sparked a protest that got out… Read more
