For the second time in recent history we find Hillary Rodham Clinton providing cover for another dirty, lying, scumbag Democrat President.
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.”
And with her futile and desperate throwing-of-herself-upon-the-sword, any chance of her ever holding a national political office. Hillary for President in 2016? Joe Biden has a better chance of winning Jeopardy.
Much like GOP Senators McCain, Graham, and Ayotte, I’m not buying the bullshit “the buck stops with me” gambit:
“We have just learned that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has claimed full responsibility for any failure to secure our people and our Consulate in Benghazi prior to the attack of September 11, 2012. This is a laudable gesture, especially when the White House is trying to avoid any responsibility whatsoever.
“Furthermore, there is the separate issue of the insistence by members of the Administration, including the President himself, that the attack in Benghazi was the result of a spontaneous demonstration triggered by a hateful video, long after it had become clear that the real cause was a terrorist attack. The President also bears responsibility for this portrayal of the attack, and we continue to believe that the American people deserve to know why the Administration acted as it did.”
That second quoted paragraph is the key, and why Obama, Rice, Biden, and Hillary are NOT off the hook for the cover up and deliberate lying to the American people AFTER Hillary’s failures resulted in the death of 4 Americans.
In front of Ambassador Stevens’ flag-draped coffin, both of these despicable liars were still trying to convince us (and the world) that this terrorist attack was our own damned fault for having the chutzpah to make a film that insulted the Prophet Muhammad (piss be upon him).
Of course, if you listened closely, Hillary didn’t really take full responsibility — that’s just what Obama and media will want you to believe on the eve of the Foreign Policy debate (which should spend the entire hour and a half talking about nothing other than Libya) and the weeks before the election.
Note she “takes responsibility” but the “specific decisions” on security were made by “security professionals.” Translation: If anybody screwed up, hey, it was those professionals, not me. Otherwise, why would we need an investigation to “get to the bottom of it”? The career bureaucrats can hear the war drums, smell the war paint, and will be sharpening their knives. They know that the Secretary has just put a target on them.
Exactly. If Hillary was actually taking responsibility, she would either be fired or resign immediately. Instead, a low-level “security professional” will be fired shortly, at which point we’ll all be asked to “put this behind us and move on.”
An Ambassador is dead and the administration trotted out a series of lies from the outset. And the key questions remain unanswered:
- Who ordered security removed from Ambassador Stevens when he and other personnel were requesting moresecurity?
- Who made up the story about the video and the non-protest in Libya?
- And why were the false stories promoted for weeks on end?
Four Americans are dead and more than a month has elapsed during which the administration has lied, evaded and misdirected. Perhaps a few of these questions will be asked in in the remaining presidential debates. Dare to dream.
