When Hillary Clinton said yesterday that Benghazi was her biggest regret, it never even crossed my mind to doubt her.
QUESTION: Any do-overs that you would — relative to Secretary of State?
HILLARY CLINTON: 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 doesn’t mean that there’s not going to be unforeseen consequences, unpredictable twists and turns.
You know, my biggest, you know, regret is what happened in Benghazi. 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.
Of course, mind you now, when I say that I 100 percent believe her that Benghazi is her biggest regret, it does not for one single second mean that I agree with what she asserts makes Benghazi her biggest regret. Her biggest regret is not that her actions caused the death of Ambassador Christopher Stevens or the other 3 Americans that died with him that night. No, like every career criminal and sociopath who has ever lived, her regret isn’t that she committed a crime, it that she got caught, or in this case that what happened in Benghazi might obliterate her personal political aspirations to become the next resident of 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.
