Hillary Clinton Confronts Benghazi Accusations

On Wednesday, during the Univision/CNN Democratic presidential debate in Miami, Hillary Clinton was confronted by a family member accusing her that she lied to the families of victims of the 2012 Benghazi terror attack. Clinton responded by saying, “I feel a great deal of sympathy for the families of the four brave Americans we lost in Benghazi, and I certainly can't even imagine the grief she has for losing her son. But she’s wrong. She's absolutely wrong. We were scrambling to get information that was changing literally by the hour. And when we had information, we made it public, but then sometimes we had to go back and say, 'We have new information that contradicts it.'"

The accusation has been a stronghold in the Republican party, especially in Sen. Marco Rubio's stump speech. Clinton went on to say, "This is not the first time we lost Americans in a terrorist attack. We lost 3,000 people on 9/11. We lost Americans serving in embassies in Tanzania and Kenya when my husband was president. We lost over 250 Americans, both military and civilians, when Ronald Reagan was president. And at no other time of those tragedies were they politicized."

During the time, the administration said the attack was the result of an anti-Muslim video. Clinton was then asked about an email she sent to her daughter that said a terrorist group was responsible for the attack. Clinton said, "At the time I emailed with my daughter, a terrorist group had taken credit for our attacks on Benghazi. Within 16, 18 hours, they rescinded taking credit. The video did play a role; we have captured one of the lead terrorists, and he admits that it was both a terrorist attack and it was influenced by the video. This was fog of war. This was complicated."
