  1. Ron Johnson: I Shouldn’t Have Speculated On Clinton’s Emotions

    http://livewire.talkingpointsmemo.com/entry/ron-johnson-i-shouldnt-have-speculated-on-clintons

    Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI), who got into a heated exchange with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton during a Senate hearing on the deadly Benghazi attack, on Thursday walked back his accusation that Clinton showed emotion to get out of answering tough questions.

    “I did not accuse of her crying, no,” Johnson said on CNN. “I was responding to a question, Soledad. I probably speculated, and I shouldn’t have.”

    Johnson told BuzzFeed on Wednesday that Clinton “just decided before she was going to describe emotionally the four dead Americans, the heroes, and use that as her trump card to get out of the questions. It was a good way of getting out of really having to respond to me.”

  2. Hillary faces down angry men
    From simpleton Ron Johnson to delusional Rand Paul, GOP senators swung at the secretary of state and hit themselves

    http://www.salon.com/2013/01/23/hillary_faces_down_the_angry_men/

    Three weeks after her release from a New York hospital with a blood clot on the brain – a health emergency mocked on the right as “Benghazi flu” — Secretary of State Hillary Clinton gave Senate Republicans their day of rage over the Sept. 11 Benghazi killings on Wednesday.

    From the intellectually underwhelming Ron Johnson of Wisconsin to the ever-angrier John McCain, with cameos by unimpressive 2016 hopefuls Rand Paul and Marco Rubio, Clinton stood up to the raging bulls with grace and fire of her own.

    Hillary Clinton Eats the Republican Party for Lunch at Benghazi Hearing

    By: Jason EasleyJan. 23rd, 2013

    Senate Republicans found themselves absolutely dominated by Sec. of State Hillary Clinton at today’s Benghazi hearing. Sec. Clinton didn’t just testify. She owned the room.

    Here is Sec. Clinton smacking down tea party Sen. Ron Johnson’s Fox News talking points about “misleading” of the country over whether or not the Benghazi attack was caused by protesters or terrorists

    Clinton answered Johnson’s attempt to try to drum up a scandal for the White House sternly and directly, “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 one night who decided they’d go kill some Americans? What difference at this point does it make! It is our job to figure out what happened and do everything we can to prevent it from ever happening again, senator. Now honestly, I will do my best to answer your questions about this, but the fact is that people were trying in real time to get to the best information. The IC has process I understand going with the other committees to explain how these talking points came out. But you know, to be clear, it is from my perspective, less important today, looking backwards as to deciding why these militants decided they did it than to find them and bring them to justice, and then maybe we’ll figure out what was going on in the meantime.”

    Later, John McCain broke out his usual grandstanding for the television cameras and tried to blame the administration for the lack of security and military assistance in Libya, and he was slapped with some facts by Sec. Clinton.

      Rand Paul: Should Have Fired Hillary

      It seems not everyone was satisfied with Hillary Clinton’s testimony this morning. During the congressional hearing, Tea Party favorite Rand Paul criticized Clinton for a “failure of leadership” over the attack in Benghazi, Libya, and called it the “greatest tragedy since 9/11.” He added, “Had I been president, I would have relieved Secretary Clinton of her duties.” Shortly after the hearing, Paul sent out a video clip of the exchange to his supporters. Paul has previously said he is “interested” in running for president in 2016.

  5. Ron Johnson responds to Hillary Clinton’s “theatrics”

    http://tpm.ly/10JC1ra

    Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) on Wednesday said Hillary Clinton’s testimony on the Benghazi, Libya attack amounted to “theatrics” intended to dodge Johnson’s line of questioning.

    “I wasn’t trying to get under her skin, I was just trying to get a relatively simple question answered, which she didn’t really want to answer,” Johnson said on Wisconsin’s WTMJ radio, according to Politico.

    “I’m not trying to be obnoxious here, I’m just trying to get the answers I believe the American people deserve to hear,” he added. “It’s been four months.”

    A visibly riled Clinton shot back at Johnson during a Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing, after he questioned why State Department officials didn’t retrieve information from evacuated U.S. diplomatic staff on the eve of the attack.

  28. US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is giving evidence to Congress over the deadly attack on a US mission in Benghazi, Libya, last year.

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/21161346

    “I take responsibility,” Mrs Clinton told the foreign relations committee of the Senate, referring to security failures that led to the attack.

    She had been due to testify late last year but fell ill.

    The US envoy to Libya Christopher Stevens and three other officials were killed in the attack on 11 September.

    The ambassador died of smoke inhalation when he was trapped in the burning consulate building, after armed men had stormed the compound.

    The assault triggered a major political row over who knew what and when. As a result, an independent panel – the Accountability Review Board – was charged with investigating the incident.
