    Clinton: 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 that they'd they 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 a 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 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.

    Johnson: OK. Thank you, Madame Secretary.

    Involved doesn't equal lie and coverup. To convince, you need more.

    No that us simply not true. And it was Bush and his people (note: you don't have Obama in the emails either. Just noting your inconsistency)

That's powerful poison in the current context of apparent foreign policy disarray.
    I'll accept looks bad. But not the the complete leap others are making.

    No, that's another issue. But you have to prove knowledge and intent.

    It will play a small role in getting BHO a Repub Senate this fall.

    In, but not the speaker. Not the writer.

    It might. But it also might be that this only resonates with a small vocal group who never vote democrat anyway. I can't say I know for sure. But I saw a poll today that Obama's numbers moved up.
