On Sunday’s Up w/ Chris Hayes, we’ll talk about the conflict in Mali and the Congressional hearings into the attacks in Benghazi, and examine whether the violence in Mali is fallout from the intervention in Libya and the broader Arab Spring. Then we’ll turn to the broader legacy of Hillary Clinton as secretary of state. Few would dispute that Clinton has worked as hard as, if not harder than, any of her predecessors. But what are the concrete policies and achievements of her tenure? And can she fairly be regarded as one of the most influential secretaries of state in history? Plus: Four years after President Obama took office and pledged to close the military prison at Guantanamo Bay, it remains open. We’ll examine the human rights record of the Obama administration in the context of its national security policies.
