What Difference, At This Point, Does It Make

10 May

Back at the end of January, then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton made her way into the history books by asking the now famous question, “What difference, at this point, does it make?” [1] when she was questioned about the initial claims that the attack on the US embassy in Benghazi sprang from a spontaneous protest over a YouTube video. As more hearings are now taking place about what really happened that night, the question has come back up. What difference, at this point, does it make about what really happened at Benghazi.

If you listen to left-leaning sources, you will hear that it makes no difference whatsoever, and that we should all move on with our lives. Several sources refer to it as a GOP witch-hunt, with the sole purpose of sullying the good name of Secretary Clinton before she runs for president in 2016 [2]. The Washington Post claims that inaccurate “media accounts” are to blame for the infamous Susan Rice talking points [3]. And Rep. Elijah Cummings, who is on the oversight committee, commented that “death is a part of life,” as if the murder of an ambassador is a part of the natural order of things and should be accepted [4].

However, there are plenty of other sources who are firm in their belief that the deaths of four Americans and an attack on a US embassy should be thoroughly investigated. An attack on an embassy is equivalent to an attack on the country itself, and for that reason alone, the Benghazi terrorist attack clearly deserves an exhaustive investigation. Whether or not there was a mishandling of the situation, and by whom, needs to be discovered. It is also clear that the American people have already been fed false information, and the question of whether it was due to incompetence or deliberate deception needs to be answered once and for all.
