Back on January 23rd, then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton didn’t just reveal a brazen case of ‘thou doth protest too much’ when she rhetorically shouted, ‘What difference at this point, does it make?’ after being pressed by Senator Ron Johnson (R-WI). That quote was so shocking that the rest of Clinton’s words are often overlooked.
Here is the entire quote. Granted, the aforementioned quote is the most shocking but it also the linchpin of a blatant contradiction. Focus on what she said before and after the now infamous eight words:
“The fact is we had four dead Americans. Was it because of a protest or was it because of guys outside 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.”
On one hand she rhetorically asks ‘what difference… does it make?’ and on the other hand she said we need to figure out what happened.
By saying, ‘What difference at this point, does it make?’ in between, she negates what she says after that about it being her job to figure out what happened.
So, which is it, Hillary?
The truth is that it isn’t the State Department’s job to figure out what happened. It’s Congress’s job.
