West: Clinton Suffers From Benghazi Flu

Rep. Allen West, R-Fla., chided Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for her failure to attend congressional hearings Thursday on the September killing of four Americans at the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya.

“I’m not a doctor, but it seems as though the Secretary of State has come down with a case of Benghazi flu,” he told Fox News. “I think we have to get to the bottom of this. There’s still a very countless amount of unanswered questions.”

Clinton was originally scheduled to appear in Congress today, but she suffered a concussion a few days ago. The secretary has pledged to appear in both the House and Senate in January, Politico reports.

Four State Department officials resigned this week after an independent report said management failures led to inadequate security at the consulate.

“Just because we see the resignations of these bureaucrats, I find it very interesting that some of those were the ones who testified before the government oversight committee, that does not mean that this ends,” West said.

“I don’t think that this should become the new normal, and the next thing you know, four years from now, we have Hillary Clinton running for president when we had this death of the ambassador, two former Navy SEALS and a foreign service officer.”
