Clinton 'accepts' recommendations on Benghazi security
bbc ^ | 12/18/12 | staff

Posted on 12/18/2012 6:56:01 PM PST by Nachum

US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has accepted all 29 recommendations in a report into a deadly attack on the US consulate in Benghazi, Libya.

The report found that systemic failures at the state department led to insufficient security at the consulate.

But it found no individual official ignored their duties, and the review has not suggested disciplinary action.

The 11 September attack saw Ambassador Christopher Stevens, as well as three other Americans, killed.

If negligence that results in death can’t even get you fired from a government job, then what can get you fired? Or is it just employment for life for Democrats?

What a joke - supposed to be a joke on us - and will be reported dutifully by the MSM to the brain dead.

I remember when Hilary! just wanted to “run something”. So she got to “run” the United States of America Department of State and has become the most traveled SOS ever - on our dime of course. What an excellent adventure for the “wronged” wife of the rapist who became POTUS. All was just fun and games until some “pigs” (remember how she loved the military?) and an ambassador got killed apparently while the Ambassador was doing the new POTUS’s dirty work.

The problem now of course is that the majority of voters DO NOT CARE. All they want is for the government to make sure that those who still have jobs will keep them in the lifestyles to which they have become accustomed.

I just don’t see how this can be turned around until we end up with another revolution.

then what can get you fired? Nothing.

At worst, if the scandal or crime is too hot and they have to throw you under the bus, resign and patiently wait for reassignment---generally speaking, it will be to a position where you can do as much or better "good." You will be compensated.

Or is it just employment for life for Democrats? Yes

It was not a Consulate. It was a "mission" and not listed on the State Department's list of properties.

Shouldn't she now be interested in that Marine Hammer chained to his bed in Mexico. Isn't that her job?

Or does she only go down there for wine tasting or something?

Lets face it. Clinton has done NOTHING as SOS. She has been a little more than a carrier pigeon for Obama.

I know, I just think it is time this one is brought up. It is her job. If not now, because she is ILK, er ill, then next person in line.

How about Susan Rice.......? lol

Let's make a trade: Holder for Hammer....., now that would be the real justice here.

Whitewash ping

“Hillary Clinton has accepted all 29 recommendations.”

Let me begin by saying I cannot thank this review board enough. As it rightfully concludes, mistakes were made, and I am so grateful for this report and its recommendations on how we can do better. We can always do better.

And now that you have made these 29 recommendations-—such wise recommendations-—, we look forward to doing better and implementing these recommendations....well...I can’t speak for the future Sec State, but i am certain he will take these recommendations under the most serious advisement, and in the time I have left, I will act as quickly as possible to implement all of you recommendations.

I am so grateful to receive such sage advice. Our ambassadors deserve America’s finest security, and your report ensures the cover we need to demand more money in our budget so our sacrificing state employees and ex-Seals on a mission aren’t ever left twisting in the wind again, captive to a hostile foreign nation and an opportunistic political machine that will leave as many behind as needed to save its image.

Yes, mistakes were made, mistakes were made, and now we have been provided with a road map to guide us to do better. We can always do better. And, I assure you you, we will do better.

Although the report has so wisely and fairly cited no one for disciplinary action, we will smack the fingers of the Bureau of Diplomatic Security and the Bureau of Near East Affairs the report so convincingly scolded, and perhaps reshuffle a deck chair or two.

Fresh faces always make for fresh starts.

And if that is all the questions you have for me...WHAT? I can’t recall. That doesn’t square with my recollection. As you know, I am recovering from a recent concussion, so I apologize most profusely if my memory isn’t as sharp as I would want it to be to answer all of your questions because, as you know, I want to cooperate with you fully to ensure the mistakes made at Benghazi never happen again.

So sorry our time has run out. I must catch a plane to the Middle East. If I can be of further assistance, please don’t hesitate...............

This leads me to one question, where did all of the Americans go? Are there any left in this administration? Hillary is guilty as sin and should be fired, or worse.

But that’s how it works, don’t you see? A bully (bullies) only have to make a few examples out of those that speak out to make the majority cower in fear.

We have lost our way. I fear that we are in for some great suffering before the nation finds its backbone.

Attending Thursday’s hearing instead will be Deputy Secretary of State William Burns and Deputy Secretary of State for Management and Resources Thomas Nides.

“Mmmhmm, ok, mmm hmmm.”

She’s leaving the job next year anyway. Just a lot of talk to say “I accept the recommendations”. Accept the CULPABILITY for the horrible situation over there.

Barack Hussein Obama went before the United Nations in 2011 to declare “mission accomplished” in Iraq, Egypt, and Libya. What happened?
