The most hostile moment of this this morning’s hearing on Benghazi came when Senator Ron Johnson pressed Secretary Clinton on the Obama administration’s ever-changing narrative about what caused the attack on our consulate.
In what might be a preview of the presidential election campaign of 2016, Sen. Rand Paul grills Hillary Clinton in her Senate appearance to answer questions about Benghazi and weapons that might be leaving Libya (and says he would have fired her had he been president over the matter):
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton made her long-awaited appearance before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee this morning to testify on Benghazi. In her prepared remarks, Clinton said: “As I have said many times since September 11, I take responsibility.” But this is responsibility in its unique Washington sense of responsibility without consequences. Clinton remains in her cabinet position and, while four underlings have been reassigned, she herself has suffered no consequences as a result of the disaster for which she says she is responsible.
