MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Some 44 percent of US citizens were unsatisfied with former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s response to the 2012 terrorist attacks on the US diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya, according to a recent poll.
The NBC/WSJ survey also revealed Tuesday that 47 percent of the respondents considered the release of Clinton’s e-mails related to Benghazi an important factor in deciding their vote in the upcoming elections.
Only 27 percent of US residents were satisfied with Clinton’s response, according to the survey.
Clinton was in the last months of her service as state secretary when Islamic terrorists attacked the US diplomatic compound in Benghazi on September 11, 2012, killing Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other US government employees.
Clinton has previously taken responsibility for mistakes made in the aftermath of the attacks, but rejected accusations that the Obama administration had tried to mislead the US public about the Benghazi terrorist attack.
