Hillary Clinton said Sunday that she’s too busy campaigning to be president to watch the highly anticipated Michael Bay film “13 Hours,” which depicts the 2012 terrorist attack on a U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya, while she served as U.S. secretary of state.

“I’m just too busy campaigning,” the Democratic presidential front-runner said on CNN’s “State of the Union.”

“I am still very focused on making sure we do everything we can as I did when I was secretary of state, as I testified to over 11 hours, to make sure that nothing like that happens again, insofar as we are able to prevent it,” she said. “And that’s my focus when it comes to the continuing obligation that the United States government has whenever we send anyone into harm’s way.”

The film, “13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi,” has put renewed focus on Mrs. Clinton’s role in the tragedy ahead of the 2016 presidential election, though it doesn’t explicitly mention her or other senior administration officials by name.
