Clinton emails show concern about image after Benghazi

Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton waves to supporters gathered outside after she spoke at the Water Street Bookstore in ExeterBy Mark Hosenball and Alistair Bell WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Top aides to former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton fretted over how she would be portrayed after the 2012 Benghazi attacks that killed the U.S. ambassador to Libya and three other Americans, emails released on Friday showed. The emails also showed Clinton received information on her personal email account about the Benghazi attacks that was classified “secret” by the FBI just prior to their release. Clinton, the frontrunner for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2016, has come under criticism for using a personal email account, hosted on a private server in her New York state home, instead of a government one for messages she sent and received as secretary of state.
