HEARINGS

State: Benghazi ‘Unacceptable’

In the first Senate Benghazi hearings, the State Department said the weaknesses in security that lead to the 9/11 attack were “unacceptable.” Deputy of Secretary William J. Burns said that “we have to do better.” Senator John Kerry opened the hearing calling for some “responsibility” from Congress—they need to meet the financial demands of diplomatic security. Meanwhile, Hillary Clinton was blasted by Allen West, who said she had caught the “Benghazi flu.”
