IN AN interview with the Associated Press, former Secretary Hillary Clinton not only shrugged off her Benghazi critics, but eviscerated politicians like Senator Lindsey Graham, without naming him, for refusing to accept the facts.
Senator Graham was not content in asking questions on Benghazi, but said Clinton “got away with murder,” in one of the lowest moments and most scurrilous accusations of the entire Benghazi witch hunt.
“I was so unhappy with the way that some people refused to accept the facts, refused to accept the findings of an independent Accountability Review Board, politicized everything about this terrible attack,” she said. “My job is to admit that we have to make improvements and we’re going to.”
[...] “There are some people in politics and in the press who can’t be confused by the facts,” she said. “They just will not live in an evidence-based world. And that’s regrettable. It’s regrettable for our political system and for the people who serve our government in very dangerous, difficult circumstances.”
On 2016, her former “nos” are nowhere in sight.
“I am making no decisions, but I would never give that advice to someone that I wouldn’t take myself,” she said. “If you believe you can make a difference, not just in politics, in public service, in advocacy around all these important issues, then you have to be prepared to accept that you are not going to get 100 percent approval.”
Asked if she still thought she could make a difference, Clinton replied, “Absolutely,” but added quickly that she hadn’t yet decided how.
“I have deliberately cabined it off,” she said. “I am going to be secretary of state until the very last minute when I walk out the door. And then I am going to take the weekend off and then I may start thinking about all the various offers and requests and ideas that have come my way.
“I have made no decisions and I just can’t until I have time to think it through and see how I am going to put it all together. I will certainly write something. I will certainly speak. Those are givens, but the rest of it I don’t have in mind. And I hope through my writing and speaking to continue making a difference as well.”
