Hillary Clinton: still looking for answers to questions that “make no difference”

In her appearance on CNN yesterday, Hillary Clinton said there are still too many unanswered questions about the Benghazi attacks. “I’m still looking for answers because it was a confusing and difficult time,” she declared.

But Clinton hasn’t always been so inquisitive. In January 2013, responding to questions from the Senate Foreign Relations Committee about what caused the attacks, Clinton famously responded, “What difference does it make?”

In all likelihood, that response better reflects her true feelings than the line she’s taking now, as she looks to further her presidential prospects. Clinton may be “looking for answers,” but not to the question of what happened in Benghazi. Rather, she’s looking for answers to the questions she’s being asked about Benghazi. The answers she’s delivering aren’t good enough.

In any event, Clinton’s alleged curiosity about Benghazi undercuts the Democrats’ claim that, after multiple investigations, there is little if anything to be learned about the attacks. As she said yesterday, “there are answers [but] not all of them, not enough, frankly.”
