Lima, Peru (CNN) -- 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.

Will Hillary resign?
She can kiss 2016 goodbye.
Falling on the sword a day before the debate. Interesting. For a Klinton, must be a angle.
She can’t be responsible. She reports to the illegal alien from Kenya. It’s still his responsibility. She works for him. She is his employee.
I wonder if PRESIDENT Bush would have let Condi Rice fall on her sword to save his @$$. I doubt it. PRESIDENT Bush is an American. Americans don’t play that sh*t.
That’s it. Don’t expect any details.
The media will go along with theb ruse - “Let’s move on, that’s old news.”

and doing it from half a world away....
Oh what the second “black president” must have on the first “black president”! One can only wonder.
Obamas effort to blame Hillary for the debacle in Lybia is the death knell for his campaign. Its not because of his unwillingness to accept responsibility, its because he has just given every hard core liberal woman a reason not to vote for him, he has thrown the leader of their cause under the bus. Obama is not only losing more independents, he is losing liberal democrat women. They may not vote for Romney, but hey wont be voting for Obama either. Her “acceptance of responsibility” will only magnify this shift.
Who is responsible for ignoring the real-time feed coming from the burning consulate?
Then why was Stevens in Benghazi in the first place, Hillary? Do you always send your people to dangerous places with no security on 9/11?
Now we know why Obama had that emergency meeting with Hillary last week.
Amazed, but wryly smiling....
What did Obama know and when did he learn it?
I think you're premature in that assessment.
She's the first, the only, official to take any responsibility for any of the Benghazi business.
As such, it enhances and burnishes her credibility and draws a very stark distinction, only days before the election, between her and Obama.
Brilliantly played Hillary.
She “took responsibility” then immediately said the decision on security in Bengazi was made by security experts in her Department. That’s a cop-out. Four people died. If she’s responsible she needs to resign.
Candy Crowley said Im not a fly on the wall. I hope big butt Hillary isn’t one either. If one or the other landed lit on a wall, the wall would quickly become a FLOOR.
