Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, went to the Hill to take questions on the Benghazi attack in Libya. She handled a grueling day with grace and professional demeanor. Her command of facts, clarity on the dangers we face in the world was beyond impressive. She took the politically charged rancor of Senators Johnson, McCain, Paul with even-handed, but assertive aplomb. Take that, FauxNews.
Hillary said that no matter whether the attack was motivated by a bunch of guys who wanted to kill our Ambassador for sport or a terrorist group, 4 people died. So, the most important issue now is to determine what Congress and the Administration can do in the future to make sure it doesn’t happen again in the many global “hot spots”. It will take more financial resources, for one.
Secretary Clinton will be missed. Hope she runs in 2016.
