Hillary Clinton Needs to Face What Happened

Yesterday marked the fifth anniversary of the attack on the Benghazi compound, an attack that resulted in the deaths of Ambassador Christopher Stevens and U.S. Foreign Service Information Management Officer Sean Smith. It also marked the release of Hillary Clinton’s 500+ page book, What Happened, explaining why she lost the presidential election. In the face of a lot of head shaking at the amount of blame she heaps on everyone but herself comes word of a Rasmussen poll showing that a majority of American voters believe Clinton should retire from politics.

According to Rasmussen Reports, “Sixty-one percent (61%) say it’s time for her to retire, up from 55% just after she lost the presidential election to Trump last November.” The survey goes even further. 49% of those polled said they believe Clinton’s “continued presence on the national stage is bad for the Democratic party.” The most telling information to be garnered from the survey is this: only 38% of Democrats believe Hillary Clinton is good for their party.

What Happened by Hillary Clinton

Despite all this, despite the fact none of these results should surprise anyone, Clinton continues to push herself into the public eye. Whether she chose 9/12 as the date to release her book or her publisher did, she should have had the decency to step up and say, “No, I won’t promote the book on that day and you shouldn’t release it then.” From where I sit, it is a slap in the faces of the families of Ambassador Stevens and Sean Smith. It is a slap in the faces of those who waited helplessly for her to authorize help for the compound when it came under attack. But she didn’t object to the date, at least not publicly where it could have earned her at least a nod of appreciation from those who remember and who won’t forget how she was anything but forthcoming when asked about what happened five years ago.

Clinton continues to say that, while she won’t run for office again, she will not retire from politics. Her reasoning? “I literally believe that our country’s future is at stake.” This from the woman who, as the New York Daily News pointed out, “She was, indeed, untrustworthy: Remember her fainting spell at the 9/11 ceremony? Remember how long it took for her to tell the truth? Remember how that reminded every voter in America that Hillary Clinton’s first instinct is to lie? Just like she did when she claimed she had taken sniper fire during a First Lady trip to Bosnia. Just as she did when she said she never sent classified documents over her private email server.” Heaven help us then. Let’s hope she doesn’t decide to help us like she did Ambassador Stevens and Foreign Service Information Management Officer Smith.
