Clinton Testifies About Improving Security Post-Benghazi

In long-awaited testimony, Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton on Wednesday asserted that she had moved quickly to improve the security of American diplomats after the September attack in Benghazi, Libya, that killed four Americans and prompted a scathing review of State Department procedures.

“As I have said many times since Sept. 11, I take responsibility,” Mrs. Clinton said in a prepared statement. “Nobody is more committed to getting this right. I am determined to leave the State Department and our country safer, stronger and more secure.”

Appearing before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee in the morning, Mrs. Clinton choked up as she recounted the grim moment in September when she and President Obama received the bodies of the four Americans killed in the Benghazi attack at Joint Base Andrews, outside Washington.
