Analysis: No answer Clinton gives on Benghazi will satisfy those 'obsessed'

(CNN) – Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton answered questions on Benghazi during interviews with ABC.

Initially, Clinton told ABC's Diane Sawyer that she couldn't look at blue prints and determine where blast walls were.

This morning, on ABC's "Good Morning America," Clinton expanded on her answer.

"I've obviously thought about this long and hard, and the security issues around this attack – or the attacks we had when my husband was President, or when President Reagan was in office – you learn from them. You can't always predict. You can't always sit in an office in Washington and say, well, we think this, this, and this will happen," Clinton said.

Was that answer good enough?

"I don't know that she'll ever have an answer that's good enough for the people that are obsessed with Benghazi," said The Washington Post's David Maraniss.
