Secretary of State Hillary Clinton faced tough questioning Wednesday from GOP Sens. Ron Johnson of Wisconsin, John McCain of Arizona and Rand Paul of Kentucky when she testified before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.
Especially notable were the fireworks generated by the Johnson and Clinton exchange.
Johnson highlighted the fact that “within hours if not days,” information was “readily available” that the attack was not a spontaneous demonstration that had gotten out of hand, but rather a planned, coordinated terrorist assault from beginning to end.
Each time Clinton strayed away from the questioning, Johnson interrupted and brought her back.
Whenever anyone begins a sentence with the phrase, “With all due respect,” you know that there probably is no respect between the two. After Jonson’s repeated questions and interruptions, Clinton angrily exclaimed, “”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 last night who decided to kill some Americans? What difference at this point does it make?
The difference, Madam Secretary, is that the American people were lied to by this administration and your department for weeks afterward.
The following clip shows the exchange.
