Rounding out weeks of interviews and exclusives on the topic of her new book Hard Choices, Hillary Clinton joined CNN’s Christiane Amanpour for a CNN town hall yesterday at the Newseum followed by a joint live interview closing out Bret Baier’s “Special Report” and opening Greta Van Susteren’s “On the Record.”
Both the televised town hall and her sit down with FOX led with yesterday’s breaking news of the arrest of Benghazi attack suspect Ahmed Abu Khatallah.
“This is another indication, as President Obama said in his statement today, that the United States has an unwavering commitment to bring to justice those who are responsible for attacks on Americans, no matter where they are, no matter how long it takes,” said Clinton in her conversation with CNN chief international correspondent Amanpour.
Mirroring her earlier comments before CNN, Clinton told Baier, “My point is that what we try to do in this country and I think what was made abundantly clear by this latest effort is we have an unwavering commitment to go after anyone, no matter how long it takes, who is responsible for harming Americans and everybody around the world who thinks about that, plans that, needs to know that will be the outcome.”
Other topics discussed: the release of Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, the NSA and the IRS scandal.
Following her sit down with CNN and FOX News, Clinton presented the Global Trailblazer Award to the sister of recipient Razan Zaitounch at Vital Voices 13th annual Global Leadership Awards at the Kennedy Center. Clinton founded the Vital Voices Democracy Initiative in 1997 alongside former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright after the United Nations Fourth World Conference on Women in Beijing to promote the advancement of women as a U.S. foreign policy goal.
