When looking at the list of most influential people of 2014 one can not consider the list complete without the inclusion of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
And while you might question whether or not she deserves to be saddled with the entire burden of guilt in the Benghazi attacks-there's plenty of blame to go around-you certainly can not discount the horrendous events of September 11th, 2012, nor the fact that she was head of the State Department during that time when considering whether she should have made the list.
If you further consider her direct involvement in the cover-up which followed the events of that day, and her refusal to accept any responsibility for her actions, there is no doubt that she deserves to be on the list of most influential people of 2014. Right along with North Korean Dictator, Dim Sum Kim, or whatever he's calling himself these days.
If I were able to speak from beyond the grave, I would most certainly have nominated her myself.-J. Christopher Stevens
