" Clinton erupted in anger.
"With all due respect, what difference at this point does it make?" she said, waving her hands in the air. "We have four dead Americans. It's our job to figure out what happened and make sure it never happens again. People were trying in real time to get to the information."
I have the deepest respect for Hilary Clinton and I would vote for her in the next Presidential Election if she decides to run. She is fierce when she has to be and her heart seems to be in the right place. Plus she loves Bill with all his crazy ways and I admire her for sticking with him.
So when I read that she "erupted in anger" I loved her even more. The piece of information that concerns me with the Bengazi affair is that the Republicans voted to decrease spending for embassies around the world. Got to save that dollar. Hello? That is the travesty of the deaths. That is the source of what went wrong.
Actions have consequences and in their zeal to save money the Republicans put us a this kind of risk. Who did what during the actual attack makes no difference to me. Whether there could have been a phone call here or some extra troops there is not the point. If you really want to investigate what happened go back to the cuts in funding for security of the embassies.
The ambassador ran and hid. I saw a computer animation of the event and it was an act of terror. When we quibble about what that means it amazes me. Terror is when you have to run and hide, period. Whether it was an official terrorist group or not is something we are still sorting out and I admire this administration for going after the criminals whoever they are.
They talk about this administration taking a soft step in international affairs. Thank goodness No Drama Obama isn't invading countries for revenge. He is taking his time to figure out who exactly is to blame and bringing them to justice.
The terrorist organizations in this world are beyond borders. We need to get over the idea that it is country against country anymore. "They" are everywhere. This administration is smart and it is a modern world where warfare is tracked and documented. We are not back in the era where it took two days for a letter to get to someone. Information is golden.
The administration handled the shootings in the best way they could. All this finger pointing is a political ploy by the Right to put doubt in the American mind about the Democrats rule. There is no doubt in my mind that Obama and Hilary can take that 3am emergency call and do the right thing.
