Hillary Clinton: "I Take Responsibility" For Benghazi
(But It Was An Underlng's Fault)

But of course she blames it on lower-level advisers.

She says "I am responsible" for the security of State's 60,000 workers, but then says she's not responsible at all:

"The decision about security aspects are made by security professionals."

Source: Wendell Goler on FoxNews, about 40 minutes ago. The quote was printed on screen.

I'm responsible, but then again, I'm not; the buck stops with me, but not really, it was this low-level political appointee scapegoat who's going to claim he "shielded" me from these demands for additional security on his own authority.

But don't blame the President. See, I've taken responsibility.

I was responsible for the low-level scapegoat whose fault this really is.

Okay, Ms. Clinton: What are the names of these "security professionals" you say made this decision? Forgive my suspicions, but I'd like to ask them for their side of the story.

I'd also like documentary evidence for all of these claims.


Bonus: In April, the consulate was attacked.

The State Department suspected their very own guards carried out the attack.

State Department officials suspected that two Libyan guards hired by its own security contractor were behind an April incident in which a homemade bomb was hurled over the wall of the special mission in Benghazi, according to official emails obtained by Reuters…

The April attack illustrated concerns among some U.S. officials in Libya that hiring local residents for embassy guard duties could in itself raise security issues.

The emails identified one of the suspects in that incident as a former employee of Blue Mountain Group who had been fired four days earlier for vandalism, and said the other was still working for the company. Both were unarmed guards who performed routine security tasks, such as screening visitors.

An assessment of the guards stated that they were of "extremely low caliber."


Question Time. Questions for Obama -- and now, Hillary Clinton.

61 cnn's take - this is shameless politicizing

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said the buck stops with her when
it comes to who is to blame for security ahead of a deadly assault on
the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya.
"I take responsibility"
for what happened on September 11, Clinton said in an interview with
CNN's Elise Labott soon after arriving in Lima, Peru, for a visit. The
interview, one of a series given to U.S. television networks Monday
night, was the first she has given about the attack on the U.S.
consulate in Benghazi.
Clinton insisted President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden are not involved in security decisions.
"I want to avoid some kind of political gotcha," she added, noting that it is close to the election.

What they are not telling you is that AQ is having a resurgence due to the policies of this administration, which Mr. Obama ultimately owns. That makes the world a much more dangerous place for us.

And it's no small fact that Mr. Obama telegraphed the withdrawal from Afghanistan. If you think that bodes well for us, I have a bridge to sell you. Our enemies are all to eager to provide the Taliban (and indirectly AQ) with weapons and support.

Then they will be on the march again

incompetence does not explain this perfectly, just as it explained nothing about Barky's junta's actions perfectly. Sure, incompetence is a big part of it, but malevolence is always the main factor in any of Barky's moves. he didn't accuse the Pentagon of returning an obsolete strategic review of the Afghan war to him because of his incompetence. He didn't waste a fighting season sending them out to do another one (that took just about as long, the "reason' he gave for the obsolesence of the first review) and then make up his own number for the surge out of incompetence. His stupid excuses and ridiculous explanations were incompetent but the intent behind them was pure malevolence, as with the Benghazi attack.

Barky has set America up all over the place, not least of which his treasonous World "Apology" Tour - the World Traitor Tour, really.

Clinton also sought to
downplay the criticism that administration officials continued to say
the attack was a spontaneous product of a protest over an anti-Muslim
film, a theory that has since been discarded.

This does not square with what the state dept put out on Friday.

Not even close.

On Friday, the department released an Oct. 9 background press briefing, during which a State Department official contradicted the White House’s claim about the video.

The move is unusual, because the transcripts of most background briefings are not released — especially if they involve a direct disagreement between the department and the White House.

The contradiction came late in the briefing, when a reporter asked the State Department official to explain “what in all of these [Benghazi] events … led officials to believe for the first several days that this was prompted by protests against the video?”

“That is a question that you would have to ask others. That was not our conclusion,” responded the official.

Sorry, I got a bit excited there at the end.... yes, R Money should call Obama Mr. President at the end of his tirade instead of Choom boy. But he should definitely say he's ashamed that Obama is hiding behind Hillarys skirt. That comment alone will get him the feminazi vote in Massachusetts and those electoral votes! Hillary is a strong woman *achh* who stands her ground *cankles* and is taking a political bullitt for a chickensh*t! The wyminns are gonna love Mittens after this debate!!

Go R Money!! Woot Woot! Down with the Patriarchy!!

she pretends to be harry truman, while making it clear it was someobody else's fault: scuttles the Fraud bypublicaly confirming whateverybody already knew anyway about theshameless lack ofsecurity,while paying lip service to protecting him; and sets herself up for 2016 by contrasting her sense of "responsibility" to the Faud.
it's positively Clintonian.
all Romney has to do is praise her for being the only person in the administation to accept responsibility for anything, even though any sane person knows it's the administration's policies that are responsible. Then he can coyly request that she also explain why she and the clowns denied what really happened for two weeks.

Smart on so many levels
On the surface-- makes her look like a tougher, better leader than Obama
Timely-- she said it before anyone else could, which effectively neutered the blame that was going to be heading her way eventually
Practically-- she's in Obama's cabinet, so by accepting responsibility she is tacitly accepting it on behalf of Obama
Politically-- the public doesn't hold her responsible anyway, so it costs her nothing. The Beltway equivalent of your girlfriend declaring "I'm so fat. I'm so ugly" and having to reply, "Don't say that; no you're not" (although in her case I wouldn't disagree)

361 I always suspected Hillary has the political instincts of a stone. This proves it. Nemo me impune lacessit might have been the motto of the Stewart dynasty (and is still the motto of the Black Watch) but it is also the well established operating policy of your typical State Department bureaucrat. They have a wicked reputation for embarrassing Presidents and political appointees by leaking like sieves to reporters and Congressmen of the opposition party while leaving no trail back to themselves.

"McGovern in hospice. The guy was
completely wrong on just about everything, but he was a true patriot
who loved his country. I'm not sure I can say the same about modern
Democrats"

McGovern was in a B-24 Liberator over occupied Europe during WWII.

How many modern Democrats would have done that?

How many modern Democrats would instead have been saying, similarly to Hillary Clinton's recent remarks about Bashir Assad,

"Many of the members of Congress of both parties who have gone to Germany in recent months have said they believe Herr Hitler is a reformer."

378 Step 1. Hillary takes responsibility for the lack of security.

Step 2. Bubba leaks info about who is responsible for the cover story.

Step 3. We find out that there was reason for a cover story, spotlight shifts to Petraeus.

Step 4. All hell breaks loose. (Let the recriminations begin!)

Step 5. Hillary looks like she was out of the loop, get's a pass on the security lapses/security lapses become a non-issue.

385 How many modern Democrats would instead have been saying, similarly to Hillary Clinton's recent remarks about Bashir Assad, "Many of the members of Congress of both parties who have gone to Germany in recent months have said they believe Herr Hitler is a reformer."

That would be the Kennedy family's position, 1930s to early 1940s.

FDR's position, mind you, was that Stalin and Mao were the reformers.

And the isolationists - dominant amongst the Lindbergh GOP, ascendant until 1940 - took the position that we'd all be better off if everybody in Europe killed each other off.

It doesn't seem like the US political system offered many good options in those days.

So, to summarize: After a MONTH, Hillary "claims responsibility", in effect saying nothing thay everybody didn't already know. She's responsible for everything at State. Duh.

But there's a new lie. No "security professional" would have been OK with that security, and no career diplomat would have broken protocols to have that level of security, either.

To insist on that level of security requires a high-level ideologue. Either Hillary, an immediate underling, or even Obama was behind this, with some namby-pamby "if we act like friends, they'll treat us like friends" nonsense.

The question has notbeen answered: Who decided to have little security, and why?

The other question, as to who was behind spreading the lie has also not been answered, but it doesn't have to be. If it wasn"t Obama's idea, he certainly went along with it, for almost two weeks! HE is the boss, and he certainly knew what the truth was.

Also...forgot to add:

There were 234 attacks in Libya in the past year. Kennedy said 20% were in Benghazi.

So, what percent did Obama know about and still not order his Secretary of State to provide more security?

he belonged and where there is more security? WHY was he moved on 9/11

I suspect he gave her back the original prints and the negative of Hillary getting serviced by a well hung donkey on a stage in a Tiajuana night club; then he offerd to pay off all of her campaign debts; and maybe provide Billy Jeff with a string of willing 20 year old interns from here to Eternity.

I guess the MFM was doing a bad job of getting his ass out of the fire. So they had to come up with something, anything before the debate. It's all bullshit, but that is what they do. The Bark must be protected at all costs. Too bad he is the only one they feel that way about. And as The Bark would say, 'You would think we would be thanking him'.
