That was then, this is now.....
Hillary takes the hit. On the one hand, she is correct, the responsibility rests with the leadership at the State Department and she is the appointed leader. However, the 'buck stops' at 1600 Pennsylvania Abe and everyone in the world, including our enemies know that.
There was a time when I would not have believed that Clinton would stand there like a light blinded deer in the headlights and take the hit for Obama, but I guess the old adage of living and learning comes into play. Apparently, Hillary is quite comfortable occupying the bridge of the Titanic along side her president. So be it.
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Monday tried to douse a political firestorm over the deadly assault on a U.S. diplomatic mission in Libya, saying she's responsible for the security of American diplomatic outposts.
"I take responsibility," Clinton said during a visit to Peru. "I'm in charge of the State Department's 60,000-plus people all over the world, 275 posts. The president and the vice president wouldn't be knowledgeable about specific decisions that are made by security professionals. They're the ones who weigh all of the threats and the risks and the needs and make a considered decision."But she said an investigation now under way will ultimately determine what happened at the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, where Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans were killed on September 11."I take this very personally," Clinton said. "So we're going to get to the bottom of it, and then we're going to do everything we can to work to prevent it from happening again, and then we're going to work to bring whoever did this to us to justice."
