Hillary Clinton: "I Take Responsibility" For Benghazi (But It Was An Underlng's Fault)
Ace of Spades HQ ^

Posted on 10/15/2012 6:38:31 PM PDT by Perdogg

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.

She "takes the responsibility but not the blame." Gee where, ironically, did we hear that before?

So, Obamao throws her under the bus and not only does she not put up a fight, she willingly dives, head first, under the dual rear wheels. I’m sure she is burning mad for having to take a bullet for party loyalty.

"She insists the President and Vice President are not involved in security decisions."

It's a preemtive act of genius to separate herself from them so.

Absolutely brilliantly played Hillary.

Obama’s effort to blame Hillary for the debacle in Lybia is the death knell for his campaign. It’s not because of his unwillingness to accept responsibility, it’s 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 they won’t be voting for Obama either.

I think several of the folks here are on to something. Obama will stand up and take responsibility on Tuesday nite. That is one of the public meme’s about Obama... he takes no responsibility. This could be a brilliant move on his part. And the media would love him for it. And cover for the actual incident, while they lavished praise for his personal responsiblity.

Hillary is, and she doesn't realize it. I'm sure slick Willy advised her that the lack of anyone accepting responsibility is not playing well with the American public. She thinks that she can gain trust by stepping up and saying she is at fault - doing the mea culpa and appearing to be a responsible leader, in the process. The problem is: Barry is going to drill it home and use it as his teflon sheet. Barry and the Clintons have absolutely no love for one another - he wont bat an eye at walking out of the backdoor on this one.

Supposedly the next pope is the last pope and his name is Peter.

I had forgotten that the prophecy of St Malachy gives the next pope the name "Petrus Romanus":

In the persecution of the Holy Roman Church, there will reign Peter the Roman, who will feed his flock among many tribulations after which the seven hilled city will be destroyed and the dreadful Judge will judge the people.

(DOD) The action by which a commander assigns part of his or her authority commensurate with the assigned task to a subordinate commander. While ultimate responsibility cannot be relinquished, delegation of authority carries with it the imposition of a measure of responsibility. The extent of the authority delegated must be clearly stated.

Never never never forget that those anti-aircraft missiles that are missing in Libya came up missing on Obama’s and Hillary’s watch.
I’m really torn between saying much about this because some people might freak out, and telling the truth about these things with no sugar coating so that Obama and Hillary will be held responsible for being so careless and stupid with something this dangerous.
I was not an Air Defense Officer in the Army, but, as an Operations Officer, I was responsible for planning air defense for my units. I know some about air defense weapons.
We need to hold Obama and Hillary accountable for these missiles that are evidently missing in Libya. Not having security in Benghazi was stupid, but causing the conditions that led to these missiles being lost is beyond belief. I know that they didn’t grab those missiles and leave them in the desert, but their actions in kicking off this military and clandestine stuff in Libya without taking the proper precautions to safeguard those missiles is absolutely incompetent. We locked down units for having one old pistol missing. Missing weapons aren’t tolerated in the military and we should not tolerate government employees whose actions cause weapons like these missiles to be missing.

I recall that in 1973, after one of Nixon's speeches dealing with the unfolding revelations about the Watergate coverup, some liberal columnist saying that Nixon had accepted responsibility but not the blame.

Remember that it was the Nixon impeachment committee where Hillary got her start.

Oops! Hilly is not the better man than Obama!

Either the buck stops with the top leader, or it doesn’t. Looks like Hilly has the same wishy-washey leadership traits as Obama.

BTW, I predict that the White House will announce that those “security professionals” were appointed by Bush. Afterall, Obama needs Zipper-Boy Billy Clinton to keep on slicking audiences for him, so a few lies here and there might help Hilly !

Supposedly, along with Rome, Moscow has seven hills, as does also Constantinople Istanbul.

The only other major seat of past Christian influence is Alexandria. I don't know if they have much in the way of hills there, but they've been a lesser voice and influence for some time.

Time for a Mexican, Central American, or South American pope? Next time around I mean. The present guy is doing ok. I sort of like his writings. Often there are personal opinion 'asides' that I can relate to. The Marianism stuff, not so much (not at all actually).

But that's ok...it re-assures me I have no reason to fear them (as they desire I should).

False notes of prophecy, mixed in or included with portions of truth, not only give one leeway to ignore portions of a wider set of "messages", but fairly demands that one do so.
