Clinton: Benghazi Critics Don’t Live In ‘Evidence-Based World’

February 1, 2013 2:08 a.m.

A week after being bombarded with questions from congressional Republicans over the September attack on the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya, outgoing Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said in an interview published Friday that many of those critics have a loose grasp on reality.

“There are some people in politics and in the press who can’t be confused by the facts,” Clinton told the Associated Press in her final one-on-one interview before she steps down from her post at the State Department on Friday. “They just will not live in an evidence-based world. And that’s regrettable. It’s regrettable for our political system and for the people who serve our government in very dangerous, difficult circumstances.”
