Miss­ing the point on Clin­ton

The Denver Post - - OPINION -

Re: “Stop politi­ciz­ing Beng­hazi,” Jan. 24 let­ter to the editor.

Let­ter-writer Jo Ann York, a re­tired for­eign ser­vice of­fi­cer, misses the point of all the crit­i­cism di­rected to­wards Hil­lary Clin­ton re­gard­ing Beng­hazi.

She is prob­a­bly cor­rect that the tragedy “could have hap­pened at any time un­der any sec­re­tary of state.” But only a small mi­nor­ity are blam­ing Clin­ton for caus­ing Beng­hazi— she is mostly be­ing at­tacked for her ac­tions af­ter the event.

It is her pro­longed false state­ments about the cause, the com­ments when tes­ti­fy­ing be­fore Congress (“What dif­fer­ence does it make?”), and most of all her in­dif­fer­ence and the em­bar­rass­ing com­ments she made to the rel­a­tives of the fallen. It ap­pears her only in­ter­est is to con­vince ev­ery­one that “It’s not my fault.”
