Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has accepted responsibility for Benghazi security deficiencies. Now, who accepts the consequences of responsibility? And what of the disinformation campaign?
Accepting responsibility is only step one. The consequences of failure come second.
Will the second part ever happen? No.
Will Hillary resign? No. Will Hillary suffer any consequence for accepting the "responsibility" for under manning our hottest embassy situation on the 9/11 anniversary? Will she accept responsibilities for the deaths that ensued after requests for additional security? No. Will she be held on misleading the nation as to the causes of the attack. No. This is nothing more than an uncomfortable admission which serves as a diversion.
Will Obama be held for his non attendance of intelligence briefings the week prior to 9/11? Or for flying to Las Vegas on 9/12 for a fund raiser? No. Hillary took the bullet.
This is a vapid "end of story" empty acquiescence. A "Please media, go away", declaration and request. What is necessary now is the consequence of poor decision making and department control which cost lives out there in the "big game". What is necessary is the revelation of who knew what and when. Just like Fast and Furious, somehow "who knew" never comes out. This is political bargaining behind the scenes. We have this on you, and now you will march to our music. It seems to be a more valuable bobble to have in one's political war chest, than to bring to sunlight the facts and the circumstances.
In this mode, politicians all appear to have a mutual understanding amongst themselves. Kinda like, "we are all in the same actor's guild, we all make mistakes". And maybe that is the BIG problem in the American political system.

Someone with the time and the talent needs to draw or photoshop an image of Obama hiding behind Hillary and Susan Rice and distribute it far and wide.
“People who are to blame lose their jobs. people who are responsible do not.” - David Frye as Richard Nixon
Of course not.
One could only wish that Hillary, Nancy Botoxi, degenerate Reid, et al could be in an airliner piloted by the Obamadork. (Video of the crash at 11.) Party afterwards.
Oh, forgot, in many ways, that’s the situation we’re in right now.
Nothing more to see here...
Another couple of monthys and they’ll be all gone. They’ll just lie their way through to the end.
The consequences will be at least as severe as they were for Janet Reno’s BBQ-ing of the Davidians.
And then the cry will be “This is just a witch hunt to tarnish the legacy of the first Black president...Putr political retribution”
Bank on it.
Democratic defa vu? You’ll recall that way back in 1993, Attorney General Janet Reno took responsibility for the federal massacre of the Branch Davidians at Waco, Texas. “I made the decision,” Reno said at her news conference after the Waco bonfire. “I’m accountable. The buck stops with me.”
Democrats are expert shape-shifters. Because they have no principles, they can lie about everything, and they know that they will get away with it.
Republicans, on the other hand, are required to be as blameless as Jesus, because they have moral standards to uphold.
It was GUTLESS for her to wait until she was out of the country (in Peru) to make the announcement.
Wonder what the details of the deal were that got her to fall on the sword?
RE: Hillary worked with President Bush in decision making after 9/11? What’s that all about?
She was for the invasion of Iraq before she was against it. Just like John Kerry, John Edwards and the rest of their ilk.
Clinton and Rice were "gone" before....
...but they came back.... as so many DC scum often do.
Well, I believe this whole gang will be turned out by the American people in a vote three weeks from today. This bizarre, deadly foreign policy disaster will certainly help facilitate that.
If she's truly responsible, she should resign immediately. She effed up and four Americans are dead. Of course she won't resign, not yet anyway.
OK, she had confessed to the murder of 74 men, women and children and violated their Constitutional Rights.
Why didn't they arrest at any point and convict her? There are scores of willing accomplices that also share responsibility for the massacre.
