On Anniversary of 'What Difference Does It Make?,' Benghazi Report Answers

January 23, 2014 - 11:17 AM

Today marks the one-year anniversary of then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's infamous "what difference, at this point, does it make?" remark about the deadly Benghazi terrorist attack in September of 2012.

Clinton said this in a heated exchange with Senator Ron Johnson (R-Wisc.).  Since that time, we've learned from the Senate Intelligence Committee's report released last week that the Benghazi attack was preventable and that the attackers were linked to Al-Qaeda. The report also concludes that Clinton's State Department provided inadequate protection.

Yet, what's odd is that, while the report places blame on the State Department, Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), the chairwoman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, doesn't fault Clinton for preventing the attacks.
