(AP Photo/Charlie Neibergall) (Newser) – Four days after declining to apologize for her use of a private email server during her tenure as Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton has changed course. "That was a mistake," she said, referring to her use of a personal email account to send work-related emails, during an interview with David Muir on ABC News today. "I’m sorry about that. I take responsibility." Just yesterday, Clinton told the AP she did not need to apologize because "what I did was allowed." During today's interview, which will air tonight, she continued to insist she neither sent nor received classified material on the personal account. The CIA begs to differ.
