Hillary Clinton Disgraces Herself With Her Benghazi Testimony
She said it before to the public, she said it again to the Committee, she takes responsibility for what happened at Benghazi. She cried when the Ambassador's body arrived in the US. Except that she doesn't take responsibility for it. She has done nothing, absolutely nothing that signals her acceptance of responsibility. For her, to "accept responsibility" means nothing. It is just to mouth words. In this horrible episode, one of the most significant US diplomatic failures since 1945, she has dishonored herself. Disgraced herself. She has no political dignity. I would hope that her failures in this episode -- failure to organize the upper echelons of the State Department so that she received the reports that she needed to know trouble was on the way before it arrived, failure to represent an independent view to the White House, failure to accept responsibity -- will disqualify her from running for this presidency in 2016. But that would, of course, suppose she had some personal dignity in the first place.
