Benghazi happened a long time ago.
Jay Carney
What difference, at this point, does it make?
Hillary Clinton
Susan Rice, she’s distant. She is the UN ambassador, got nothing to do with Benghazi, not in the State Department. She has no representation at the consulate or at Benghazi, send her out there, and so Brian Williams said, “Why send you?”.
Rush Limbaugh
The attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi has become a political football in the presidential campaign, with all the grandstanding and misinformation that entails.
David Ignatius
I will say that there are genuine and serious concerns about what Hillary Clinton did before the Benghazi attacks, during them, and after them. I think her extremely careless handling of classified information, to use FBI Director Jim Comey’s term, disqualifies her from being president.
Tom Cotton
Hillary Clinton lies about Benghazi, she lied about emails, she is still defending Planned Parenthood, and she is still her party’s frontrunner.
Carly Fiorina
Recall that Hillary Clinton was all for toppling [Moammar] Gadhafi then didn’t listen to her own people on the ground. And then of course, when she lied about the terrorist attack in Benghazi, she invited more terrorist attacks.

Richard Grenell
“I would be prosecuted and imprisoned if I did what you did.” Again, different strokes for the Clintons, look what happened they get a pass, they get to collect all the paychecks and get all the glory, and get the cash while the rest of the people are suffering or dying in Benghazi.
Kimberly Guilfoyle

It was Hillary Clinton who left Americans in harm’s way in Benghazi and after four Americans fell, said: ”What difference, at this point, does it make?”
Mike Pence
Look, does gender play a part in how people perceive Hillary Clinton? Yes. But it’s also not the reason people criticize her about the emails or Benghazi.
Ana Navarro
Libya was a terrible mistake. You know, frankly, that’s something that people ought to be thinking about in regard to Hillary [Clinton]. You know, they talk about Benghazi, which is very legitimate. Of course it is. But we should never have deposed [Muamar] Gaddafi. That was a terrible mistake.
John Kasich
I wish we had been doing diplomatic security in Benghazi. I can tell you that Benghazi would not have happened if Blackwater were on the job there.

Jeff Duncan
So Hillary [Clinton], “I do feel in some ways tired.” And that’s your leading Democrat presidential candidate for 2016. She’s been tired for how many weeks now? Hillary has been tired for how many weeks so she can’t go on and explain? It’s been two and a half months, and she’s been two tired to talk about Benghazi.
Rush Limbaugh

Mike Huckabee
Even Gaddafi’s adversaries assure us that he stood out for his intelligence as a student; he was expelled from high-school for his anti-monarchic activities. He managed to enroll in another high-school and later graduated in law at the University of Benghazi at the age of 21.
Fidel Castro
Benghazi was a tragedy. Libya is a tragedy.
Paul Manafort
True enough, Osama bin Laden is dead and other al-Qaeda leaders have joined him. But, the assassination of Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans in Benghazi is a brutal reminder that radical Islamic terror groups have not disappeared and certainly are not dormant.
Bob Beauprez
I think there are still unanswered questions about Benghazi. I think there are unanswered questions, and they could be easily answered. But I think they need to be answered.
Condoleezza Rice
My big problem with Hillary and the Department of State where Benghazi is concerned is there is just no accountability.
Brandon Webb
Personally, I think that Hillary was one of the worst, if not the worst, I mean if you look at the record, secretary of States ever, ever in this country. I think that’s the bigger problem that she’s got. I don’t think Benghazi is as big a problem for her as her past and what’s happened. The world blew up around her.
Donald Trump
As tragic as Benghazi was, its importance pales next to killing Osama bin Laden.
Bob Beckel
The one thing that struck me right off the bat was what Donald Trump said about Benghazi.There is this view out there that [Hillary Clinton] lied about what caused the attack, that she said it was the video.
Michael Morell
Benghazi is not a scandal; Benghazi was a tragedy.

My biggest, you know, regret is what happened in Benghazi. It was a terrible tragedy losing four Americans – two diplomats and, now it’s public so I can say, two CIA operatives.
Hillary Clinton
I have been to Libya and walked the streets of Benghazi myself.
Susan Rice
There’s a reason that students don’t grade their own papers. There’s a reason defendants don’t sentence themselves. And there’s the reason the State Department doesn’t get to investigate itself, determine whether or not it made errors in Benghazi. That is Congress’s job.
Trey Gowdy
Hillary [Clinton] has a resume. What is the story in Hillary’s resume? Four dead in Benghazi, illegal emails, trafficking in classified information. The media hasn’t gone there on that yet because when covering that aspect of Hillary minus [Donald] Trump, the story is the same.
Rush Limbaugh
Some of us believe, with good reasons, that the Republicans are ‘mad-dogging’ Hillary Clinton with the Benghazi hearing to damage not only her presidential prospects, but also to damage President Obama’s credibility.
Donna Brazile
Are we witnessing an Obama ‘Wag the Dog’ moment with Boko Haram in Nigeria? I say yes.
Allen West
The attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, is a prime example. Even though Obama KNEW – from the moment of the assault – that it was a TERRORIST attack, he didn’t let the American people know.
Chuck Norris
The Republican effort to make the September 11th attack on Benghazi into a scandal is really about one thing and one thing only: Hillary Clinton.
Ed Schultz
I’ll tell you one thing about Donald Trump: There will never be a Benghazi in a Donald Trump administration.
Bobby Knight
Theirs is the party that … responds to the death of Americans at Benghazi by asking, What difference does it make?
Ted Cruz
I think what we’re going to hear is that we didn’t meet the basic, minimum standards required for a facility such as the one we had in Benghazi. And the request for more security personnel went unheeded, unanswered, and consequently, you know, you have the death of four Americans.
Jason Chaffetz
There is no other way to put it: When Mr. Obama, Secretary of then-State Hillary Rodham Clinton and then-U.N. Ambassador Susan E. Rice launched their Benghazi cover-up tour in the hours, weeks and months after the attack, they knew they were lying.
Tom Fitton
I’m outraged by the attacks on American diplomatic missions in Libya and Egypt and by the death of an American consulate worker in Benghazi. It’s disgraceful that the Obama Administration’s first response was not to condemn attacks on our diplomatic missions, but to sympathize with those who waged the attacks.
Mitt Romney
The September 11th, 2012, attacks on the State Department compound in Benghazi, Libya, is important and should be studied because in the big picture, it represents a failed foreign policy that spans across both Bush and Obama Presidencies.
Brandon Webb
Do we want someone as secretary of state that is somehow tainted in this Benghazi issue?
Jeff Duncan
The attack on Americans in Benghazi on September 11, 2012 is a stark reminder that our nation must remain vigilant in protecting our citizens from the threat of Al-Qaeda and similar extremist terrorist entities around the world.
Bob Corker
I could be wrong about that, and [Susan Rice ] may have really wanted [secretary of state place]. But now she has become a liability. If, in fact, it was legitimate. If [Barack Obama] wanted her and she wanted it, they’ve told her to go pound sand now, and that’s purely because of Benghazi.
Rush Limbaugh
Benghazi is important because it demonstrates all that is wrong in Washington.
Brandon Webb
There’s no way we can get to the bottom of Benghazi without David Petraeus.
Trey Gowdy
The report begins by asserting that it is a ‘comprehensive’ look at Benghazi resulting from an intensive investigation of nearly two years. Neither claim is true. Instead, the report is a reflection of a dysfunctional committee and the reluctant, ad hoc approach to Benghazi of its leadership and top staff.
Stephen F. Hayes
At what point in time can our government fire someone whose gross negligence left four Americans dead in Benghazi?
Jeff Duncan
I cannot and will not raise money on Benghazi. I also advise my colleagues to follow suit.
Trey Gowdy
