Benghazi deaths make a lot of difference to us

May 18, 2013 

Hillary Clinton said, "What difference does it make?" It makes a big difference, to the American people.

What difference does it make if we had sent help to Benghazi, and they got there late? The important thing is that we did everything we can do to help save our people. Our government wouldn't even try.

The movie "Saving Private Ryan," starring Tom Hanks, showed what the United States is made of, and what we're all about is never leaving anyone behind. But this government, led by the Obama administration, failed to uphold that promise!
