Hillary Clinton: "I take responsibility for the attacks of Benghazi."

Three years after the attacks of Benghazi, which was at the time head of the diplomacy of the United States, was Thursday to a Commission of Congress (lower house) to explain what happened to a highly polarized Republican opposition and under a strong media tension.

A hearing is also a political event and, say the Democrats, an attempt to undermine the very likely candidacy of Hillary Clinton for the presidential elections of 2016.

During the first hours of his appearance, Clinton took full responsibility for what happened in 2012:

"I took all the responsibility for the bombing, and therefore made changes to better protect our citizens and to prevent new tragedies from happening in the future"

Several people died in the bombing of Benghazi, Libya, in September 2012, including Ambassador Christopher Stevens and some employees of the CIA, operational on the ground.

The city of Benghazi in the Libyan coast, was, at the time, the seat of the de facto Government recognized internationally.

Washington maintains that the attacks were perpetrated by groups close to Al-Qaeda.
