Re Benghazi hearings - Didn't you find it odd that Susan Rice was chosen to be the Benghazi spokesman?
.........via the Sunday morning TV shows! Instead of Hillary Clinton who WAS IN CHARGE of the State Dept and was actually involved with the incident? Rice didn't even work for the State Dept and she had no first hand knowledge of the incident. She was the Ambassador to the UN!
@James your post is getting old! But to answer you - there was NOT the numerous pleas (which were ignored or denied) for more security which WAS the case for Benghaz1 That IS the" D-I-F-F-E-R-E-N-C-E!!"
