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.”
