What difference does it make, Hillary?

During the questioning of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton at the Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing on Benghazi, Libya , Senator Ron Johnson of Wisconsin pressed her about the administration’s conflicting explanations for the Sept. 11 attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, which killed Ambassador Stevens and three other Americans.

Clinton angrily responded to the senator, “With all due respect, the fact is we had four dead Americans. Was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk one night decided to go kill some Americans? What difference, at this point, does it make? It is our job to figure out what happened and do everything we can to prevent it from ever happening again, Senator.”

It makes a big difference, Secretary Clinton! The “difference” is that you, your department and the Obama administration were complicit in covering up the real facts of the Benghazi attack for weeks for political purposes.

In fact, her current response to Senator Johnson still doesn’t admit that it was a planned attack, but gives the Foreign Relations Committee two random options.


The answer to her question is clear. An administration that sought, for political purposes, to give the American people the idea that al-Qaeda had been “decimated” and was effectively out of commission had a clear motive during a presidential campaign to mislead the public about Benghazi.

That is the “difference” Secretary Clinton and your deception, combined with the media’s lack of investigative reporting, allowed it to work and you are still perpetuating the ruse.
