Susan Rice Has No Regrets but then, What Difference Does It Really Make???

 "National Security Adviser Susan Rice said on NBC's "Meet the Press" Sunday that she has no regrets over comments she made in a round of Sunday-show appearances in the immediate aftermath of the Sept. 11, 2012, terrorist attack in Benghazi. "

 Rice, who was then the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, said on multiple Sunday talk shows then that the attack was "spontaneous," not planned, and caused in part by an anti-Muslim video that was circulating in the Middle East. She went on to explain that she had the best information at the time and went with that information. 

First, I find it rather callous that she has no regrets. Four people died. She could have had a little class and regretted, at least, that she had the wrong information. If what she says it true, though, there still remains the question as to who gave her that information since no one in Benghazi or the military involved ever suggested any such thing. It appears, though, that then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has set the tone for the Obama administrations accountability: What difference does it make?
