Hillary Clinton was making the media rounds today, hitting CNN in a town hall event and Fox News for a joint interview with Greta Van Susteren and Bret Baier.
Hillary told CNN’s Christiane Amanpour that there “are still some unanswered questions” about the Benghazi terror attack. Hillary also said that she “relates to” Patricia Smith, the mother of Sean Smith an information management officer who was killed during the 2012 attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya. Mrs. Smith called into CNN just before Hillary’s interview aired and said, “Hillary Clinton doesn’t care” about answers.
Hillary also said in the CNN interview that she would support banning assault weapons and high-capacity magazines.
When Hillary was asked what the U.S. could do to get Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi out of the Mexican prison he is currently rotting in, she said we should be “burning up the telephones, sending envoys, not just our ambassador but others coming in talking to the highest levels of Mexican officials. Making it clear that this is really important to us.”
Hillary, to her credit, in this one interview, has said more about our imprisoned Marine than Obama and John Kerry have in a month.
And when it came to the IRS targeting Tea Party groups seeking tax exempt status, Hillary disagreed with Obama’s asinine statement that this is a “phony scandal.”
“Well, I think any time the IRS is involved for many people it’s a real scandal. I think maybe the right thing to say is let’s investigate it but let’s do it in a non-partisan, fair-minded and as fair and balanced as we can. Because we want to know what the facts are.”
