Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's last day is Friday, and she wraps with a departing shot: Benghazi critics aren't living in reality.
In a final one-on-one interview, Ms. Clinton told The Associated Press that those who dispute how the White House handled the September attacks in Libya that left four Americans — including a U.S. ambassador — dead, aren't living in an "evidence-based world."
Their inability to "accept the facts" is unfortunate for the nation, she said, according to the AP.
A panel of independent investigators had denounced the State Department for failures related to Benghazi and put blame on four agency officials. Ms. Clinton was not faulted in the report, though she later accepted responsibility during congressional testimony.
