Clinton Dismisses Criticism on Benghazi Attack


Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is dismissing blame directed at her for the September 11, 2012 attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya.

Four Americans, including Ambassador Chris Stevens, died in the terrorist attack.

During an interview with ABC News' Diane Sawyer, Clinton said the Republicans' constant criticism of her handling of the situation gives her greater incentive to seek the White House.

Clinton told Sawyer that Congress should be more focused on problems facing the country and the world.

When Sawyer asked Clinton if she could have done anything more personally to prevent the attack, she replied, "I'm not equipped to sit and look at blueprints, to determine where the blast walls need to be or where the reinforcements need to be."

"I take responsibility," she added. "But I was not making security decisions."

Clinton said she wants to travel and help in the midterm elections and then decide whether she will run for the White House.
