Questioned by Ron Johnson over State Department inaction the night of the Benghazi attacks, Hillary Clinton had a bit of a meltdown during today’s testimony. Johnson asked why Hillary hadn’t done more to determine the validity of the administration’s infamous claim that the attacks sprung from a “spontaneous protest,” and pressed her on the fact that she was still repeating the lie days later. Hillary did her best to avoid the issue, and then started yelling.
“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 who decided they’d go kill some Americans? What difference at this point does it make?”
What difference does it make?
It’s the difference between a government that fabricates events to cover-up its failings and a government that presents the truth of unpleasant facts.
It’s the difference between a State Department that lies with impunity and one which is beholden to the people it serves.
It’s the difference between an out-of-control bureaucracy and a government of the people.
It’s the difference between reality and fiction.
To answer her question; “What difference does it make?”
It makes all the difference in the world, Secretary Clinton. If you can’t understand why, you’re unfit for public office.
