    In short, she's full of it, and I don't mean "herself," although she's that, too.

    The Fox article does a great job of refuting everything she said in the chapter.
    • Then-CIA Deputy Director Mike Morrell said it was Rice and "whoever prepared her talking points" that linked the video to the attack
    • An independent review of twitter feeds from Libya around the time of the attack show the first mention of the video was over 14 hours after the attack began, and even then it appears to be fed by reaction out of Washington
    • Nonetheless, the administration and Clinton continue to cling to the video explanation long after both physical evidence -- video cameras around the consulate compound -- and testimony from State employees indicated there was no demonstration around the complex prior to the attacks
    • Clinton's defense of Rice could also be problematic because Rice inaccurately stated on three network Sunday shows -- ABC’s “This Week,” NBC’s “Meet the Press” and “Fox News Sunday” -- that security was "strong" or "significant" at the consulate on the day of the attack.
    • Rice told “Fox News Sunday” that former Navy SEALs Ty Woods and Glen Doherty, who died in the attack, were there to “provide security,” incorrectly linking them to consulate security, but they were CIA employees who made the determination to respond, even though it was not their job to do so
    • Fox News was first to report on an August 2012 State Department classified cable that said the U.S. Mission in Benghazi convened an "emergency meeting" less than a month before the assault and concluded Al Qaeda had training camps in Benghazi and the consulate could not defend against a "coordinated attack"
    This administration -- and this former secretary of State -- have continued to lie about the Benghazi attack since it happened, and Clinton's most animated response, sadly, has been to scream before the Senate Intelligence Committee ...

    “With all due respect ..." -- in reality, she had none for the question or the questioner -- "the fact is we had four dead Americans. Was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk one night decided to go kill some Americans? What difference at this point does it make?”

    Mrs. Clinton, accountability matters. You and your husband have never learned that, your former boss in the White House doesn't believe that, but you're all about to find out that it matters a great deal.

    Nobody will care....the same sheeple who voted for a man who went to Jeremiah Wright's "church" for 20 years will vote Hillary back into office. The veil of the Dark Side will fall. We will endure at least 4 more years of losers and thugz running this country.
