Posted on 01/27/2014 3:46:08 PM PST by gooblah
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton remained vague on her 2016 ambitions Monday, but said her biggest regret while leading the department was the 2012 attacks in Benghazi.
You make these choices based on imperfect information and you make them to as we say the best of your ability. But that doesnt mean that theres not going to be unforeseen consequences, unpredictable twists and turns, Clinton said Monday during the National Automobile Dealers Association conference in New Orleans, according to video from CNN.

what on earth was hillary doing at a National Automobile Dealers Association Convention to begin with? looking for a JOB?
the best of her ability indeed
“My bad, dog.”
A regret? A freaking regret? 4 of our citizens are murdered and YOU did nothing and it’s a regret?
>>You make these choices based on imperfect information...>>
Well, that will go over big with the Rats, but if she had imperfect information she should have examined it more fully as any Secretary of State must do.
And she can’t deny THAT.
But they can pretend to be regretful when they need to be.
what differance does it make?
Did we ever hear where she was and what was she doing that night?
Four are dead and we arguably could have saved them and....
You and the president lied about the attack for a long time and then ridiculed Ron Johnson when he asked about it. Shameful and despicable.
Did it have anything to do with helping the Muzzie Broz and/or Al Qaeda?
Why haven't any of the participants poped up to speak?
She’s been married to one of the worlds best used car salesmen for decades
IIRC, it was a 3 PM call that Hillary couldn’t deal with.
By 3, she was wondering where that other bottle of scotch went.
She will find out next fall that it matters a whole he11 of a lot to most Americans. The hilderbeast will be hearing her own words a thousand times a day. It matters when four Americans die needlessly. It matters when you could have prevented their deaths. Each and every fact in this cover-up matters more than she now knows. If the democrats had any brains they would make sure she retires and stays away form the fall elections. The conservatives are going to hang her out for public ridicule with her own words, "what does it matter.?"
It matters Hillery, it matters.
Benghazi was just one of the results of a failed Libyan policy of which she has major responsibility . The Hillbitch’s policies/decisions are still killing people——http://theconservativetreehouse.com/2014/01/27/hillary-clinton-susan-rice-and-samantha-power-killed-five-egyptians-last-weekend-bigger-shock-the-new-york-times-reports-on-it/
There's nothing vague about it.
She wouldn't be mounting this "biggest regret", B.S., damage cotrol effort if she weren't planning to run.
‘any Secretary of State must do.’
Let’s be honest here. Hillary took the SoS(how appropriate) job for the express purpose of burnishing her resume and travelling the globe on the taxpayers dime.
She had no interest in or cared about the daily grind of actually doing the tedious task of administering the State dept. All that paperwork that transited the assigned underling’s desk was beneath her considerable intellect and vast experience.
I hope she does run for the presidency. It would be sweet to drive the stake through that shriveled heart at the ballot box.
Well, like duh!
Her biggest regret is that her plan did not work.
Its really not that complicated.
For the election, Obama needed to show that he could be tough on Islam.
Hillary and Obama planned to have the Ambassador kidnapped and then Obama would get tough on the terrorists and they would give the Ambassador back. Obama a hero, election in the bag.
Hillary stripped away all the security to make it easy. Problem was that some Navy Seals showed up and started kicking some Muslim butt. Terrorists figured they were set up and the real plan was to wipe them out. They thought that Obama was trying to be the hero by defending the Ambassador.
Things spin out of control, Ambassador is abused and killed Muslin style. Obama and Hillary have to go into spin and lie mode.
It seems to me that the facts of what happened seem to fit well into this scenario.
Prove it, b*tch and be held accountable along with your thug supporters!
As always with a liberal, it’s about her.
She left the gate open and the cows got out. There is no spinning around that.
Not a regret. An out and out lie on how she and the 0bama regime handled it both in the UN and the US.
The Best of “HER” ability - Yup. The smartest woman on earth has no clothes.
She did this interview so she can say later she already addressed it and can’t we move on? It is right out of the clintoon’s playbook.
So she regrets declining requests for added security, and then watching and hearing their requests for troops when under attack, then telling the military to do something else and let alqaedA overrun the station for hour and hours.
Isn’t that special...
This needs to be seen by everyone:
It doesn’t matter WHERE she was speaking. It’s all part of the money laundering and bribery outfit that is Washington.
Ambassador Stevens could not be reached for comment.
I guess she will speak just about anywhere... at the drop of the hat. and a few bucks.....
The auto dealers paid hildabitch $200,000 for a speech.
She's got a job, national shakedown queen.
She knew within one hour of the start of the attack that it was Al Qaeda associated terrorists. While the attack was still going on, She and or Obama failed to use military resources that were available.
She and Obama lied and our people died.
We had F16s available at Aviano Air Force Base in Italy. The F16 has a combat radius of slightly over 800 nautical miles. Which means it can fly for 1600 miles before it is out of fuel. Bengazhi is 891 nautical miles from Aviano. This means that they could have been on target about an hour and a half after launch using a best range speed of about 550 knots.
An F16 could have flown from Aviano to Bengazhi and delivered ordinance on target. It would not have enough fuel to get back to Aviano but could easily made it back to Southern Italy or Sicily. The attacks lasted about 7 hours. An immediate response would not have saved our ambassador, but it would have saved those two Seals that rescued the individuals in the consulate and brought them back to the CIA annex.
Consider this scenario:
1. Within one hour our government i.e. Hillary, Obama, and the secretary of defense knew it was an Al Queda associated attack on our consulate, this is fact not supposition.
2. The President ordered support from Aviano.
3. One hour to arm and launch the F16s.
3.One and a half hours to get to target.
4.Ordinance delivered to target 3-1/2 hours from the beginning of the attack.
4. The attacks lasted 7 hours.
One must ask why they did not make the order for a cross border attack to save our guys? What the hell really happened in Washington DC that night?
LOL! I snorted my coffee!
