Hillary Clinton has given comments in which she claims that Benghazi is her “greatest regret” as secretary of state.

“My biggest, you know, regret is what happened in Benghazi,” Clinton said when asked to identify “do-overs” of her time as America’s top diplomat during her keynote appearance before the the National Automobile Dealers Association in New Orleans.

What a venue to express such a deep regret, but to be fair, the national media have had chances to ask her about Benghazi. 60 Minutes had that chance, with both Clinton and Obama giving a joint interview. 60 Minutes didn’t ask. Barbara Walters doesn’t care about Benghazi. She just finds Hillary Clinton fascinating.

“It was a terrible tragedy, losing four Americans, two diplomats and now it’s public, so I can say two CIA operatives, losing an ambassador like Chris Stevens, who was one of our very best and had served in Libya and across the Middle East and spoke Arabic,” she said

“I mean, you know, you make these choices based on imperfect information,” she said. “And you make them to ,as we say, the best of your ability. But that doesn’t mean that there’s not going to be unforeseen consequences, unpredictable twists and turns.”

Just for the sake of history, let’s recall that Clinton could have prevented the attack but failed to do so. Her State Department turned down repeated requests for enhancing security at the U.S. facility in Benghazi. After the attack, she blamed it on a YouTube video and promised one of the parents of the victims that the U.S. government would go after and get the man who made that video. Clinton made good on that threat. The perpetrators who actually carried out the attack, however, remain at large and the Obama government has shown no interest in capturing them.

Congress called for the State Department to investigate Benghazi, so Clinton hand-picked an Accountability Review Board that ruled out holding anyone among Clinton’s political appointees or senior staff, let alone Clinton herself, accountable.

When she was questioned about her “biggest regret,” and why she blamed it on a video, in testimony before Congress in January 2013, Clinton screeched, “What difference, at this point, does it make?”

The only thing Hillary "regrets" is any scrutiny at all on her behavior.

Here is the point:

Can anyone tell me what was so damn important that the ambassador had to be called there...on THAT date, with no adequate protection?

Can anyone adequately explain why, after knowing minutes after the attack began that it was an organized, pre-meiitated event...that Obama and Clinton disappeared and hid?

Can anyone adequately explain why, after knowing minutes after the attack began...that it was an organized, pre-meditated event, did Rice, Clinton, Obama and the rest of this cabal put forth a false story about a YouTube video?

Can anyone adequately explain...why in the face of the above...a known innocent man was falsely arrested, rousted at midnight in front of the alerted Propaganda Machine and jailed?

The Ambassador and Vince Foster both ended up dead. They also both knew something that made them uneasy about the situation they were being placed in. And, in both instances...a kangaroo court was convened to find no evidence of anything suspicious. And, ...they are both still dead.

If Hilliary really wants to put Benghazi behind her, she should tell us;

1. Why she refused to provide adequate security despite repeated requests for additional security. And...

2. Why we should now trust her judgement in being responsible for the security of the nation.

what difference does it matter, if she wants to get this out of the way or not,

what difference does it make, that she promised the family of those slain that they would get the people responsible.

What difference does it make that a film maker was put in jail, a political prison to this woman's lies.

IT MAKES A HUGE DIFFERENCE>

Hillary, above all others, has BLOOD on her hands for the murdered four of Benghazi---AND the BLOOD will NOT wash off!

NO, Hillary, you CANNOT put Benghazi behind you per your political handlers--for the BUCK did stop with YOU, and YOU ALONE, for US Diplomatic facility SECURITY was YOUR RESPONSIBILITY.

AND...Benghazi does make a HECK of a DIFFERENCE to the rest of America.

what difference does it make what she says, she has already been called a liar, and unethical by the senate committee that she worked for as a youth.

So what difference does it make, well it makes a great deal.

it's not just Benghazi. It's also our embassy in Egypt. It's also the video but not because of the video maker but because her and barry's allies the muslim brotherhood aired it to instigate violence in Egypt because they wanted their blind sheik back(and gitmo residents). He was convicted of plotting an attack in NY and is suspected in the first WTC bombing and the second attack was timed to fall on the day of the sheik's sentencing. At least Egypt will try morsi for the embassy attack.

The downside of emphasizing Benghazi is that it gives former Obama voters an excuse to label the whole thing as an attack by right-wing paranoids - or at least opportunists.

Sorry to say this, but I think the fix is in. If Hillary runs in '16, she will win. The same people who elected Obama will elect her. Benghazi won't matter. They're still looking for Mr. (or Ms.) Progressive Goodbar - the one who will finally make everything OK. Obama wasn't quit Him. But they won't stop looking.

I think the most important thing to remember about Hillary Clinton is her intense and unyielding thirst for power.

Whoops, did I say power? I meant equality.

The Left wants you to vote for Hillary in 2016 so that she can take that 3:00 AM phone call! Myself I would not trust her to take that call or even to be able to find the phone. Yet you must admit to her "Experience" in blaming a YouTube video for what happened will carry her a long way with the Marxist Left lumpenproletariats. Well it is a change from using "Bush" as the stock excuse.
