Hillary Clinton to Receive American Patriot Award
Hillary Clinton is set receive the National Defense University Foundation' American Patriot Award.
According to the Washington Examiner, the award ceremony features five co-chairs: "Madeleine Albright, who served as Secretary of State under Bill Clinton; former Defense Secretary Leon Panetta, who spent two years as Clinton's White House chief of staff; ...Vernon Jordan, who became a household name when he attempted to cover up the Monica Lewinsky scandal by getting the then-White House intern a job; [and] former Republican presidential candidate Jon Huntsman and George W. Bush's former Secretary of State Colin Powell."
Previous award recipients include "three failed presidential candidates"--Sens. Bob Dole (R-Kan.), John McCain (R-AZ), and Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.).
Ironically, Clinton receives the award on November 14, which is around the time 60 Minutes is running a special detailing its attempts to "get to the truth about what happened in Benghazi."
