Skip to comments.ABC News’s Diane Sawyer destroys Hillary Rodham Clinton on Benghazi

A standard defense for Hillary Rodham Clinton when facing questions about Benghazi, Libya, has been to cite her commissioning of a report from the State Departments Accountability Review Board (ARB), which took a deep look at the attacks that claimed the lives of four U.S. personnel on Sept. 11, 2012. In testimony before Congress in January 2013, Clinton said: I hurried to appoint the Accountability Review Board led by Ambassador Pickering and Admiral Mullen so we could more fully understand from objective, independent examination, what went wrong and how to fix it. I have accepted every one of their recommendations.
In an interview with Clinton that aired last night on ABC News, anchor Diane Sawyer threw the ARB right back in the face of the former secretary of state. The two tangled over the preparedness of the U.S. diplomatic installation in Benghazi for a terrorist attack. In defending her work on this front, Clinton stressed that she had delegated the particulars of security to the experts in the field. Im not equipped to sit and look at blueprints to determine where the blast walls need to be, where the reinforcements need to be. Thats why we hire people who have that expertise, said Clinton, who did the interview as part of the tour for her book Hard Choices.
Sensing an opening, Sawyer cited the document that Clinton herself has so often cited: This is the ARB: the mission was far short of standards; weak perimeter; incomplete fence; video surveillance needed repair. They said its a systemic failure.
Clinton replied, Well, it was with respect to that compound. The anchor continued pressing, asking Clinton whether the people might be seeking from her a sentence that begins from you I should have
? Clinton sort of ducked that one.

Some one set them up the Al-Qaeda bomb!
When you are flat broke and only making $100K per speech, it is difficult to buy two houses worth $4.5 million!
(must be Common Core math)
Is it me? I spent half the interview asking myself: what happened to Diane Sawyer? She looked like Miss Haversham.
This is the standard clintoon strategy 101. Get this out early, make it looks as if they are being asked ‘hard’ questions. Make sure it is a none issue by the time it should actually matter.
Make no bones about it, Diane Sawyer has ALWAYS been a boot licking obedient dog for the clintoons - and still will be.
I smell something here. Are the left media outlets reviving their 2008 campaign to raise someone more liberal than Hilderbeast?
that’s why she’s running already to take the hits and in 2016 say it’s all old business.
I think they are just trying to say, hey, we asked the questions. see, we’re fair and balanced. fully knowing the truth will never be uttered from their mouths.
The comments at Amazon are entertaining. I say...pile on.
Will anyone ask about the gun-running?
I think Sawyer was stunned at her defensive stand. What she doesn’t understand is that her thighness is explaining herself very clearly: She sets things up such that she CANNOT be held accountable and would govern that way as President. No doubt that she has learned this from Commander Zero.
Why won’t somebody just ask her what Stevens was doing in Benghazi that night?
Sawyer is shocked at how poorly Hitlery is answering her questions.
Interesting title. It makes me this think about Bill and what he faced.
As I was checking at the grocery store I noticed one of the magazines featured ‘Hitlery In The White House’ , like they were already assuming she would be president. This is what the Republicans have to fight against. The MSM has already taken it for granted she will be the next president.
