January 27, 2014, 12:46 pm Hillary: Benghazi 'my biggest regret'

Hillary Clinton called the Benghazi terror attack the biggest regret of her tenure as secretary of State on Monday, a message she's expected to emphasize as she ponders a 2016 White House run.
My biggest, you know, regret is what happened in Benghazi, Clinton said when asked to identify do-overs of her time as America's top diplomat during her keynote appearance before the the National Automobile Dealers Association in New Orleans. [WATCH VIDEO]
It was a terrible tragedy, losing four Americans, two diplomats and now it's public, so I can say two CIA operatives, losing an ambassador like Chris Stevens, who was one of our very best and had served in Libya and across the Middle East and spoke Arabic, she said
I mean, you know, you make these choices based on imperfect information, she said. And you make them to ,as we say, the best of your ability. But that doesn't mean that there's not going to be unforeseen consequences, unpredictable twists and turns.
This isn't the first time Clinton makes such comments. She mentioned Benghazi during a global town hall with young diplomats conducted via satellite last year, suggesting her reaction to the attack would feature prominently in her upcoming memoirs.
Certainly the loss of American lives in Benghazi was something that I deeply regret and am working hard to make sure we do everything we can to prevent, she said during last year's event at the Newseum in Washington, D.C.
Republicans have hammered Clinton over the death of Stevens, the U.S. ambassador to Libya, and three other Americans in a Sept. 11, 2012 terrorist attack.
They've used the episode to chip away at her record on national security. An internal review of the attack faulted the State Department for failing to provide better security at the U.S. consulate but Republicans say Clinton has unfairly escaped blame.
Clinton slammed her critics at a Senate hearing last year she famously demanded to know what difference does it make? what prompted the attack but has since adopted a different tone.
The problem with telling you to gfy is, you probably can .... and do.
Your “biggest regret” once “made no difference?”
Liberalism is a mental disease.
Another possibility: liberalism is just old-fashioned dumbness, dressed up in high-tech threads provided by the MSM.
She said what she said at the hearings. What difference does it matter?
The fact remains, Hillary let those people die. That either shows inexcusably bad decision making, or it demonstrates ruthlessly exchanging lives for political expediency.
She regrets it happened on her watch at State instead of Kerry’s.
Hillary finally realizes she’s got a Benghazi problem. Well, she’ll drag out Ambassador Stevens’ warm and fuzzy mother who will back Hillary up 100% with her own words on pursuing the story: What the point?
And what about blaming the filmmaker and 1st Amendment?
My biggest, you know,..”
...No. We don’t know. Tell us evil one.
Four people died and it may have been preventable....
And she and others lied about what happened.
Lying about it and mocking Ron Johnson when he asked her about it was despicable.
Her only regret is she couldn’t convince her HubbaBubba to take that ambassadorship spot in Libya. They don’t have a McDonalds.
It was your biggest TREASON hildebeast666.
What does she now think of her treatment so many years ago of her savagery of rape victim JUANITA BROADDERICK...?
In this statement I believe her. BUT, we need to know the truth about what really happened and why.
“So I can say two CIA operatives”
What an awful human being Hillary is. She is trying to diminish the two former SEALs who died. She deserves a kick in the ass for that.
She regrets anyone knows.
That is all.
