Clinton: 'I take responsibility' for security ahead of Benghazi attack
CNN ^ | October 15, 2012 | Elise Labott

Posted on 10/15/2012 5:01:35 PM PDT by maggief

EXCERPT

"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, were 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, Clinton said.

"I want to avoid some kind of political gotcha," she added, noting that it is close to the election.

Whatever blackmail Obama and his goons have on the Clintons must be massive.

Well, if she can stomach being publicly humiliated by her president husband cheating in the oval office under her nose, she can certainly fall on the sword for the deaths of 4 Americans for BHO.

How disgusting. She’s nothing but a 2016 whore.

I pray for America, but man, there’s a lot of heavy lifting to do.

She took the fall- now she will go off to be the President of Yale. She can later run for President if she wants.

“”I want to avoid some kind of political gotcha,” she added, noting that it is close to the election.”

Which means what you said is disingenuous.

Sorry, you have a boss, and he is responsible for what you do or dont do.

Obama believed he had to clear the air after Biden's lies about who knew what when. Trouble is, he will now have made Clinton look like a scapegoat and a victim of Obama's disdain for women. This is shabby treatment of Clinton, and all women will see it instantly for what it is. As more truth comes out he just won't be able to dodge this bullet.

Wonder what Billyboy gets out of this deal? It has to be a lot to stab his own wife in the back. Unless, the game isn' t over...

My sentiments exactly. That being said, her comment was basically ‘as Secretary of State I am responsible for all the employees in the State Dept. The security concerns are overseen by security experts'. So, she SAID she will take responsibility, but just like her husband, implicated others were really responsible. How Obamaian and Clintonian at the same time!

Im thinking that Obama promised a scorched earth campaign, if Hilary didn’t take the fall. She’ll probably get an easy ambassadorship to some European country for having taken the fall.

Her political career is now basically finished. It was probably done to save keep some uncomfortable questions being asked during the third debate.

“Taking responsibility” for something is not the same as being responsible for that thing. No matter what she says the President is responsible.

I wish the Clinton's would just unload all the ammo they have on this phoney creep and let the chips lie where they fall.
It would be the biggest October surprise in the history of American politics, but they won't because it would not only finish the Kenyan, it would finish the democrat party too.

Put it this way.... Hillary's supporters will see this as Obama throwing Hillary under the bus and they won't like it at all.
Watch a major shift of women moving ( not that it's not already doing so ) away from Obama to Romney.

Don't believe this crap. It is King Obama that wants a low profile in this Muslim land of the killing of Americans in hopes that it will bring peace.

The only thing that could be that massive would be proof of their involvement in one or more of the many mysterious deaths on their list or proof of the treason they committed by giving the chicoms missile and guidance technology.
