Rubio grills Clinton: An early 2016 face-off?

[sharenow]

As Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., questioned Secretary of State Hillary Clinton Wednesday on Capitol Hill about the deadly raid on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, there was much speculation in the blogosphere that this may well be the first face-off between eventual 2016 presidential contenders.

As part of the exchange, Rubio asked Clinton about her knowledge of the security situation in Benghazi prior to the attack.

“Were you ever asked to participate in any sort of internal or interagency meeting before this attack with regards to the deteriorating security situation in Libya?” Rubio asked.

 “With specific security requests, they didn’t come to me – I had no knowledge of them,” Clinton replied. “With regard to the situation in Libya – not just Eastern Libya, across Libya – there were a number of conversations and meetings to try to see what we could do while Libya went through this transition from transitional government, to interim government, to elections to try to get in there and help them with security.”
