"What difference - at this point, what difference does it make?" she asked.
The president also dismisses questions about Ben-ghazi as a matter of "political motivations," just part of a "political circus" to raise campaign cash for 2014.
It is nothing of the kind.
President Obama won re-election, having killed Osama bin Laden.
Al-Qaida won in Benghazi, having killed a U.S. ambassador, two more Seals and an Air Force veteran.
In so doing, al-Qaida exposed the administration as not only unwilling to secure its territory, but unable to respond when its people came under what was clearly an attack on the anniversary of Sept. 11, 2001.
Al-Qaida exposed the United States as a force not to be counted on in the Middle East.
If the administration tried to spin the story as something else to win re-election - if it put its political best interests ahead of national security - the "political motivations" are on the president's side, and they are unforgivable.
