Secretary of State Hillary Clinton briefly came close to crying on Wednesday when describing the bodies of Benghazi victims returning to the U.S.
"I stood next to President Obama as the Marines carried those flag-draped caskets off the plane at Andrews," Clinton said, her voice breaking. "I put my arms around the mothers and fathers, the sisters and brothers, the sons and daughters, and the wives left alone to raise their children."
Clinton is testifying before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee about the September 11 attack on the embassy in Benghazi, Libya, which left four Americans dead. Her hearing was postponed for a while because of health problems that landed her in the hospital.
