Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.) sees something more sinister than a stomach virus in Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's illness-based absence from two Capitol Hill hearings on the attacks in Libya Thursday morning.

"I'm not a doctor, but it seems as though that the secretary of state has come down with a case of Benghazi flu," West told Fox News. “I think we have to get to the bottom of this, there's still very -- countless amount of unanswered questions."
