Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton tried to deflect some of the blame for the failure of preventing the Benghazi terror attack on hired experts. She made the comments in an interview with Diane Sawyer:
Sawyer asked, "Is there anything you personally should have been doing to make it safer in Benghazi?"
"Well," Clinton responded, "what I did was give very direct instructions that the people who have the expertise and experience in security --
"But personally you --"
"Well that is personal, though, Diane. I mean, I am not -- I'm not equipped to sit and look at blueprints to determine where the blast walls need to be or where the reinforcements need to be. That's why we hire people who have that expertise," Clinton responded.
"I wonder if people are looking for a sentence that begins from you, 'I should have, I should have,'" Sawyer responded.

They are psychopaths maybe?
No. This is the usual script... put out "reasonable" excuses for why she didn't do her job. Diane's helping. She's saying she did do her job but who could expect her to be an engineer too.
The "teaser" clip ended w/o Hillary's answer to this rather provocative question. That is, at least, a direct question going to her personal competence and accountability.
I mean, being the smartest woman in the universe and all.

Hard Choices is far from boring. It's filled with insider detail about the most important foreign policy decisions of Obama's first term.
Proof that extra terrestrials walk and work among us.
If she can’t sit and look at blueprints, she could have stood and did it. No sale.
Her and her beard are.
In other words, he was still ultimately responsible. His new job required him to judge the competency and reliability of others, rather than making the judgments himself. If they failed, he failed. Were it only so with politicians.
“Well that is personal, though, Diane. I mean, I am not — I’m not equipped to sit and look at blueprints to determine where the blast walls need to be or where the reinforcements need to be. That’s why we hire people who have that expertise,” Clinton responded.
Like obozo yesterday Clinton displays an utter lack of honor or courage or leadership. We have NOTHING at the top of this country...NOTHING.
And they were all put where they are by a majority vote. A corrupt people prefer to be ruled by corrupt leaders.
You could have sent in more troops or pulled the personnel out rather than pretending they were safe.
Pray America wakes up
Unusual angle to view Hillary. Looks like she weighs 200 pounds. Not that there is anything wrong with that....
One of the most basic rules of management is that you can delegate authority, but not responsibility.
Let's face it....Obama had total control over you.
That’s a couch not a chair she’s sitting on.
complete and total denial... she is toast for any further elected office.
LOL. So Hillary’s response is basically “I told them to be careful”.
Better question. Where is all the millions that went missing while you were running state and could any of those missing funds been money that was supposed to increase security for the compounds in Benghazi ?
And who gave the stand down orders Hilly?
She has to blame somebody. Given time, I like what she came up with. It’s better than some Obama excuses!
