Who cares?! I just listened to part of Hillary Clinton’s testimony before Congress on Benghazi. Sen. Johnson asked her why the administration “misled” the American public to believe the attack was caused by a viral video online.
Mrs. Clinton answered passionately, “Who cares? There were four Americans dead, and everybody was running around trying to figure out if the attack was caused from a video or from some people out for a Sunday walk who decided to go kill some Americans.”
So, who cares? Well, apparently a lot of people do. Besides the fact is the question was not directed at the time of the assault, but rather at the next eight weeks. The administration knew within days, or perhaps hours, this attack was terrorism caused by an al-Qaida affiliated group.
The question remains, why did the administration basically tell an untrue story? For eight weeks they said it was caused by a group of people who were angry at a video that had been posted a year before, and they knew it wasn’t true.
Then Hillary Clinton got what one former ambassador called the “Benghazi Flu.” This was in reference to a “diplomatic illness,” which, according to the ambassador, diplomats around the world will get when they don’t want to appear before a hearing.
I am not saying Mrs. Clinton did get a diplomatic illness. But it appears suspicious.
