ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) U.S. Republican presidential candidate and New Jersey Governor Chris Christie weighed in on Hillary Clinton's 11-hour Benghazi congressional hearing, where she came under Republican fire on Capitol hill days before. "She says she is not responsible for what happened there. She says other security professionals were responsible, yet, she didn't fire anybody" Christie told the CBS news program Face the Nation. "And I think what the American people dislike the most about Hillary Clinton is that she refused to be held accountable," he continued. Four U.S. diplomats were killed in 2011 in an attack on the U.S. mission in Benghazi Libya. Clinton was U.S. Secretary of State at the time and previously testified on the matter in 2013. "She doesn't want to tell the truth, and that's the biggest problem with Hillary Clinton, she isn't forthcoming, she doesn't tell the truth, and she doesn't want to be held accountable. That's not the kind of person we need in Washington, D.C. right now in the White House," Christie said. According to recent polls, Christie is running well behind among the 17 contenders in the Republican White House race.
