Saying that her main regret during her years as secretary of State is the terror attack on the Benghazi diplomatic annex in Libya and the deaths of four Americans, Hillary Clinton continues her cover-up.
Even as she expresses her regrets, she pretends that the reason she did not act to beef up security at the compound, and that she lied afterward, blaming the attack on an Internet video, was imperfect intelligence information.
In fact, as the records released by the bipartisan Senate Intelligence Committee make clear, she had all the relevant facts before her and just ignored them. Heres the text of Clintons remarks in her recent interview: Oh, sure. I mean, you know, 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. ...

But, alas. One can't help but suspect that the Chamber of Commerce and globalist puppet master RINOs actually want a hillary presidency.
He is like Coulter, looking out for himself which causes him to bend with the wind.
... You know, my biggest, you know, regret is what happened in Benghazi.
I’m sure it is, it cost her the presidency.
Too bad Hill, but good for America, and as
usual with the Clintons, some other Americans
had to pay the price.
