MCCAIN: 7:45 a.m. (after rambling on and on and on...........about "going to the American People, bla, bla, lie, lie, bla", bla, bla, bla)


Clinton to McCain: I understand your very strong feelings
..............we have a disagreement

with respect to helping the Libyans -

since March 20/11 Aide To Libya has BEEN PLACED ON HOLD
BY THE HOUSE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!




"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."

Hillary Clinton Erupts At GOP Senator Over Benghazi Attack

Last edited Wed Jan 23, 2013, 12:06 PM USA/ET - Edit history (1)

Source: Talking Points Memo

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Wednesday fired back at Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) over accusations that the Obama Administration misled the public by claiming the Benghazi attack was the result of a spontaneous protest. Johnson pressed Clinton on why the State Department didn't talk to the U.S. diplomatic staff evacuated after the attack, to get clear information about what happened.

"Senator, when you're in these positions, the last thing you want to do is interfere with any other process going on," Clinton said, adding that the State Department was waiting for the FBI to finish conducting interviews.

"I realize that's a good excuse," Johnson responded.

"Well, no, it's the fact," Clinton said. "Even today, there are questions being raised. We have no doubt they were terrorists, they were militants, they attacked us, they killed our people. But what was going on, and why they were doing what they were doing, is still, is still unknown."

Clinton forcefully insisted neither UN Ambassador Susan Rice nor the Obama Administration misled the public. "With all due respect, the fact is we had four dead Americans," she said. "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? It our job to figure out what happened and do everything we can to prevent it from ever happening again, senator. Now, honestly, I will do my best to answer your questions about this. The fact is that people were trying, in real time, to get to the best information."

Oh, it's not just the Obama administration they want to harm, they'd also love to put a dent in Hillary for 2016.

Never let a good disaster go to waste!

17. Here you go: from Cnn live updates

THis is where she raised her voice:

Clinton says that right now it is more important to catch those responsible for the Benghazi attack than to figure out the "why" behind it.

Sen. Ron Johnson has a heated exchange with Clinton over the immediate response to the Libya attack, saying the State Department didn't give clear answers to the nature of the threat, that what was going on in Benghazi was more than a protests.

Clinton gets angry. "What difference at this point does it make?" she says, slamming her hand on the table. "The fact is that people were trying in real time to get to the best information."

Not to disparage her. I'm just saying she's the last person you can bully and trip up. Hillary is beyond brilliant and capable of handling this panel, which seems to be all about nothing!

11. Why does it matter why it happened - they were dead - what matters is how we can prevent it. She

was pissed. Now Flake - AZ asked her why Rice's talking points were changed. She answered that it was a fluid day and they were learning little by little what happened. She is brilliant - she is making these Repukes look SO trivial

44. Did she target Assange today.

We do need more openness, but I think Hillary Clinton is doing a great job today.

However, my question is, why were the Turkish and American ambassadors meeting in an out-of-the-way consulate in a recently if not concurrently war-torn country. They met way out of the reach of really good security in a town right next to the Egyptian border where the killers could easily escape into Egypt and never be found.

Why was our ambassador there in the first place?

That is the big question.

The embassy in Tripoli surely would have been a safer place to meet.

And did the Turkish Ambassador tip someone off to the presence of our ambassador in Benghazi?

Those are the questions I have. They may just be paranoid, but I do not trust the current Turkish government.

She's been schooling Republicans for over 20 years. The right wingers' whining that she was trying to avoid testifying was nonsense. Hillary relishes a good fight and never backs down. Even McCain laughed at the idea and said that Hillary never backs away from a fight (he should know, they had plenty of them in the Senate).

Go get them, Hillary!!!

She stayed focused and strong. She made the Senator from Wisconsin look like a fool with a low IQ.

Every sane woman in America feels strengthened by Hillary Clinton's demonstration of a cool head and clear logic before the Senate today. She gave us all an example of how to handle difficult, unreasonable people.

extremist group of the type described in a 2009 DHS report to pose the greatest threat to America, its people and government, even a greater threat than posed by Islamic extremists? If so, could it be concluded that this group is a constitutional enemy within?
