Hillary Clinton's Benghazi Meltdown: What Difference Does It Make?

Fireworks erupted on Capitol Hill, as numerous Senators laid into outgoing Secretary of State Hillary Clinton regarding her role prior to and during the Benghazi terrorist attack on the anniversary of September 11th last year. A particularly heated exchange took place with Senator Ron Johnson of Wisconsin. At one point, Hillary Clinton exploded in barely contained fury:
“With all due respect, 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?” Clinton asked the Republican Senator. “It is our job to figure out what happened and do everything we can to prevent it from ever happening again.”
Public accountability does matter, Mrs. Clinton. The days of Washington politicians pretending to hold themselves accountable during staged hearings that lead to nothing have to stop. It seems that the Republican Party finally got that message.
