Even the State Dept. Can’t List Hillary’s Achievements

A blank bullet point for each of the lives lost in Benghazi?

What were Hillary Clinton’s accomplishments while at the State Department? Well, she traveled a lot but other than that, she never can seem to actually list anything. Neither, apparently, can the State Department. As part of its latest Hillary email dump this week, one email stood out. Philippe Reines, Clinton’s spokesman, sent an email to her chief of staff, which was then forwarded to Hillary herself. It’s subject line: Achievements. The body contains a four-point bulleted list of Clinton’s supposed achievements, but the released version contains only the bullets, not the points. The State Department evoked exemption (b)(5) of the federal FOIA so as to redact Clinton’s actual achievements. (By the way, the total of emails in the Clinton trove illegally containing classified information is now up to 999. Hence a lot more redacting.) So, as you can see below, we’re actually left with a very accurate picture of Clinton’s achievements while running the State Department.

Another way to look at it is a blank bullet point for each of the lives lost in the Benghazi attacks
