Hillary Clinton is saying that, like we did with Beirut, we should not look to cast blame regarding Benghazi.  And I agree with that.  Obviously, mistakes happened, and we should seek to find out what happened to fix it, not to blame people.

But the problem is that she has not only stonewalled the investigation repeatedly, but she (and the White House) lied in the aftermath of the incident to place blame with a stupid video, because we were on the eve of national elections, and they thought that the truth would make them look bad.

The day after the Benghazi attack, she said on a phone call to the Egyptian Prime Minister, "We know that the attack in Libya had nothing to do with the film. It was a planned attack, not a protest."  Yet we know that both she, and Susan Rice, kept pushing the notion that the evidence was leaning toward the cause being a protest over a video.  Clinton says that subsequent information changed the assessment, but she offers absolutely zero evidence that any such information that pointed to a protest over the video as the cause, existed.

There was never any point at which the evidence showed that the cause was likely a protest over the video.

She lied, and Rice lied, and the White House lied, and they did it to win an election.  And that's important. G+
