ANALYSIS/OPINION:

Now that Hillary Rodham Clinton is no longer secretary of state, it looks as though the investigation into the Benghazi, Libya, cover-up will be put to rest — and Mrs. Clinton will be allowed to get on with her race to the White House in 2016.

As parting words, let’s recall what President Obama said in his speech the same day that Osama bin Laden was killed by Navy SEALs: “So Americans understand the costs of war. Yet as a country, we will never tolerate our security being threatened, nor stand idly by when our people have been killed. We will be relentless in defense of our citizens and our friends and allies.”

What was done to save four American citizens in Benghazi if this country was not standing “idly by” as they were being murdered? Or, for that matter, what “relentless” defense was afforded them? Evidently, as observed by Mrs. Clinton’s hearing before the House and Senate, we will not be getting any answers. We are left with just empty words.
