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.
"I want to avoid some kind of political gotcha," she added, noting that it is close to the election.
The attack killed Chris Stevens, the U.S. ambassador to Libya, and three other Americans at the consulate

I don’t think she * took the fall for nothing...* it was to stave off Hussein being inextricably cornered tomorrow. :)
well we would get a bunch of wild varying stories all right. But these dems have no problem lying under oath... particularly since they can make any word mean whatever they want it to mean at any point in time
Could Hillary be a 100 percent Marxist and know there is something bigger than her and Obama? She has gone right along with all this Muslim stuff the past 3 years. My point is this, possibly it is not so much about political preservation as it is pushing everything along as far as she can, so that the next big worldwide transition can take place.
Now that’s just plain racist;))
I’ve been trying to figure out the angle for her “buck stops with me” ploy & your comments make total sense..& commenting about the middle east deteriorating?
The Romney campaign should in no way let O off the hook about Benghazigate tomorrow night. Romney needs to hammer/corner him & point out how rogue & amateur his administration is. All of us know who we’re voting for & it amazes me that there are still undecided voters out there but this is Romney’s moment to hammer home how unsafe another 4 years will be with O/Jarrett running the show.

“Pussy Barry Obama and the women who cover for him: HRC, Susan Rice, MO, DWS, Stephanie Cutter, Jen Psaki, Jay Carney....”
JAY CARNEY, a woman? Muahahahahah! Good one! He certainly is.
Anyone notice why President Narcissus always chooses Press Secretaries who are such milque toast males to put a white “face” on the administration’s communist agenda. Thus the suburban liberals gulp it up without questioning. Brilliant and evil at the same time.
The buck stops with Hillary.
The media will try but the American people who follow this sort of think know better. Most people dislike whimps who will not own up to their BS. Obama hiding behind Hilary isn’t going to play well. He’s her boss, this is foreign policy, and he should have known. Right?
Great Catch! You have learned well, and are helping me to learn also.
Total Agreement FRiend.
Have an opinion, and it is the one contained by some on this thread. Will not state what am thinking, but if it happens, it is still a lose-lose for both klinton and zer0. Will see if now panetta wants to fall on his sword also.
I’m going to take Dramamine B4 I watch the debate tomorrow....anticipating the spin from Hussein about Bengazigate to be epic. >8D
His doctors had informed him that he had suffered cerebral concussion and shock, but he did not seek to use his medical condition to escape responsibility for his actions.
His family connections and money were enough for that.
Hilary has more cajones than O
Several government agencies under 0bama and 0bama himself called it a simple riot caused by a movie when it was obviously Al Qaeda and planned.
THAT is where an impeachable offense comes in for the POTUS.
0bama is for from being insulated from this debacle!
If it's good enough for Nixon....
:) It wasn’t an original thought on my part, but thank you for the compliment. There are liars, and then there are Clintons....
So, why did he go to Vegas the next day after he knew what happened? Did he think ‘ if I go on like normal, nobody will make a big deal about it? His behavior shows he’s part of it. If he he was surprised and gave a hoot, he would have reacted with contempt towards the terrorists. Instead he goes golfing and to Vegas. It happened in real time via video, he would have been told of the attack, not protest... instead they came up with an elaborate story, involving Rice, etc.. which cannot be contrived so quickly.
