Hillary Clinton testifies on Benghazi attack
Updated 6:36 p.m.: Secretary of State Hillary Clinton Wednesday angrily defended her handling of the Sept. 11 attack on the mission in the Libyan city of Benghazi and denied any effort to mislead people.
The attack by armed militants that killed Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans threatens to stain Clinton's legacy as secretary of state.
By turns emotional and fierce, Clinton choked up as she spoke of comforting the victims' families and grew angry when a Republican senator accused the Obama administration of misleading the country over whether the Benghazi incident stemmed from a protest.
"With all due respect, the fact is that we had four dead Americans," Clinton shot back as she testified before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. "Was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk one night who decided they'd go kill some Americans? What difference, at this point, does it make?"
Clinton is expected to step down in the coming days once her designated successor, Sen. John Kerry, is confirmed by the Senate.
