Hillary Clinton Erupts At Ron Johnson Over Benghazi Attack

(h/t Scarce)

The way the Republicans in Congress have been milking the Benghazi tragedy, which resulted in the death of Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three others, you'd think that there haven't been at least fifteen attacks on US consulates and embassies since 1979. You'd assume they haven't been justifying their own vociferous defense of bad intel resulted in the invasion and occupation of Iraq.

You'd think that, but you would be wrong.

Hillary Clinton, who frankly, has been far more patient with this kangaroo court than pretty much any other person in DC, finally had enough with Ron Johnson's ridiculously partisan framing of the intel on the Benghazi attacks that the attack was spurred by the anti-Islam YouTube movie, "The Innocence of Muslims".

"With all due respect, the fact is we had four dead Americans," Clinton responded, raising her voice at Johnson, who continued to interrupt her. "Was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk last night who decided to 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."

Clinton continued, defending the State Department's efforts in the wake of the assault.

"Honestly, I will do my best to answer your questions about this, but the fact is people were trying their best in real time to get to the best information," she said, before blasting the senator's line of questioning. "Give me a break, Senator Johnson. This whole thing is the biggest fairy tale I've ever seen."
