Apparently, Hillary Clinton is clueless about who works at US embassies. She doesn’t even seem to know what US Marines do.
Clinton revealed her lack of knowledge about the U.S. embassy security situation at Thursday’s House Benghazi Committee hearing, where she said that Marines stationed at Benghazi “were not there” to protect personnel.
“Certainly it was useful for our security professionals and our diplomats to be partnered in that way with the Defense Department. You know, historically the only presence at some of our facilities has been Marines. And as you know well, Marines were there not for the purpose of personnel protection; they were there to destroy classified material and equipment,” Clinton said.
But the Marine Security Guards at U.S. Embassies do, actually, provide security for personnel, according to the Marine Corps website.
Wow. And this woman was our Secretary of State.
