Hillary Clinton Goes 'On the Record' About Benghazi: 'Ever Since the Bush Administration, Our Requests for Security Money Haven't Been Met'
Greta Van Susteren sat down with Hillary Clinton as she prepares to leave her role as secretary of state. The ‘On the Record’ host asked Clinton a two-part question on Benghazi, Libya.
Clinton recently testified about the attack on the U.S. Consulate there which ended in four Americans dead, including Ambassador Chris Stevens. Van Susteren asked, “In light of what’s happened can Americans now feel safe or satisfied that we are moving to secure all our consulates and embassies?”
Clinton said that the Accountability Review Board made a set of recommendations and the State Department is “implementing all of them and making sure that we apply them.”
While Clinton stated that “It’s not all a question of money,” she added, “Ever since the Bush administration
, our requests for security money from Congress have not been met. So we’ve had to make priority decisions and it’s been difficult.” Referencing the next secretary of state, Clinton said, “I am determined to leave the State Department safer and stronger when I walk out the door and I know that John Kerry will just pick up the ball and run with it.”
