…actually several books. A portrait of Clinton, a fly-on-the-wall look at life as a foreign correspondent, an analysis of international relations in the Obama (more pertinently the post-Bush) era, and a personal journey by the half-Lebanese Ghattas herself.

"I just wanted to have a chance to publicly say thank you, because I think Hillary will go down as one of the finest secretary of states we’ve had. It has been a great collaboration over the last four years. I’m going to miss her. Wish she was sticking around. But she has logged in so many miles, I can’t begrudge her wanting to take it easy for a little bit. But I want the country to appreciate just what an extraordinary role she’s played during the course of my administration and a lot of the successes we’ve had internationally have been because of her hard work.” —President Barack Obama

'…Fox News cropped footage from Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's Benghazi testimony…'

…to claim she didn’t address questions about the extent of monitoring by the state department during the September 11, 2012, attacks. In fact, unedited video of the hearing shows that Clinton not only addressed the issue, it backs up her statement that there was no real time video monitoring of the attack.

almost so predictable as to not be post-worthy, but we’ll not submit to that dangerous impulse. more.
