Hillary Clinton Flees Country, Then Takes Blame for Benghazi

Gee, thanks. It only took five weeks to come up with this excuse. And how convenient it comes 25 hours before the next debate.

Move along, nothing to see here, folks.

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, were 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, Clinton said.

“I want to avoid some kind of political gotcha,” she added, noting that it is close to the election.

Oh, OK. So a subordinate falls on the sword for the boss. Never saw this coming. So if she’s serious, when is she resigning? She obviously lied when she claimed it was the stupid video to blame, then dissembled for over a month.

So I guess now the major media that has failed to cover this story can now say it’s old news.

Oh, remember how many times the idiot Biden has told us Obama has a spine of steel? Not so much when there’s a double-wide pantsuit to hide behind.

    Ohhhh, the Janet Reno playbook; havent seen this for a while…

    Anyway, translation: “Please dont bring this up in the debate! In fact, no need for any more questions period till after the election, m’kay?”

    Jammie, you don’t see what Hillary did?

    Revenge for 2008. She just handed the election to Romney.

    Obamee has two choices: take the blame now and lose as the scandal erupts, or let Hillary martyr herself and millions of her supporters abandon him at the polls next month.

    His only choices now are bite the bullet and lose in disgrace, or remain silent and lose in a landslide.

    Those are the only two choices and he knows it. Romney camp is celebrating this morning. Believe it.

    I agree with Lightwave. DrewM at AoSHQ noted this this morning. If she really is responsible, and thus for JEF spewing crap about a video, then why hasn’t she been fired/made to resign? Ad what happened to JEF taking responsibility? Especially since Hillary made the big speeches using coffins as podiums?

    1. he failed to take responsibility
    2. He let Hillary run amok, and she’s still in place.
    3. They managed to fuck up in a country that’s large, but lightly populated, isn’t a nuclear power and isn’t in as a dire a place as say Syria or Iran.
    4. We STILL don’t know what the “proper” security support should have been or should be now.
    5. We armed the people in Libya, and this happened. We’re arming rebels in Syria and we’re ALREADY getting reports that some of these arms are going to al qeada.
    6. And the dumb bastard that made the video is still in jail for a “probation violation”.

    My fear is that we have just been tag teamed & don’t know it yet! Remember the dems. don’t think the same as conservative’s. I just don’t trust this is the end of their addenda. I could be wrong.
