In his Talking Points Memo tonight, Bill O'Reilly reacted to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton testifying for hours today in a politically-charged House hearing about her responsibility in the assassinations of American ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens and three other Americans.

O'Reilly said most of the testimony was numbing but there were two nuggets. First, Clinton, as head of the State Department, left others to protect Americans overseas. Second, she believes the "security people" failed to protect Ambassador Stevens despite being warned time after time that more security was needed.

"No one in Hillary Clinton's State Department was held responsible for the debacle in Benghazi," O'Reilly stated. "And that's likely to be the end of the story, except for one thing: Hillary Clinton's running for president."

He said that means that people must decide if Clinton is a leader they can trust.

"America needs a strong leader, so this country can regain economic momentum here and reverse the weakness that is on display throughout the world," O'Reilly said. "That is what the next election is really all about. Yes, issues are important, but vision is more important."

"Hillary Clinton believes she did the right thing as secretary of state all throughout her tenure. All the committees in the world are not going to change her opinion of herself."
