Charles Krauthammer Reacts to Hillary Clinton's Testimony: 'The Difference Is Between Truth and Falsehood'

Charles Krauthammer reacted to an exchange between Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wisc.) during the Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing on the Benghazi attack.

In response to Johnson’s questioning over the anti-Islamic film that was blamed, Clinton said, “Was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk one night who decided they’d go kill some Americans? What difference, at this point, does it make?”

Charles Krauthammer said on Special Report tonight, “The difference is between truth and falsehood. And that she should be indignant about somebody who actually wants to point out that difference is rather remarkable.”

He said it comes down to the fact that the Obama campaign

was running on the idea of “bin Laden dead" and simply would not admit to a story that contradicted Al Qaeda on the retreat.

Krauthammer commended her for being able to disarm her opponents. “When you’re facing these committees where […] half of the members are just making speeches, […] she was able time and again to do that time-honored trick of saying, ‘well there’s still the FBI looking into this and as long as an inquiry is out there, I can’t answer X, Y and Z.’ It’s the perfect out.”
