Woman Who Wants To Be President: Bad Things That Happened In Benghazi Not My Responsibility

This sounds great: if Hillary Clinton wins, we’ll get yet another four years of a President who refuses to take responsibility

(The Blaze) Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said in an interview with “60 Minutes” that she was not responsible for security failures leading up to the Sept. 11, 2012, attacks in Benghazi.

When asked what responsibility she has for the Benghazi attacks, Clinton said she “took responsibly” as secretary of state, but Congress found no negligence on her part.

“When this happened in Benghazi, I immediately stood up an independent committee – distinguished Americans, military and civilian experts,” she said. “They came out and they said, ‘You know, the ball was dropped – in security. And, you know, some of the decisions that were made, probably should have been rethought.’”

CBS’s Scott Pelley then interjected: “But wasn’t that your ball to carry?”

“No it wasn’t. It was not my ball to carry,” Clinton responded. “Read the reports, read all of the reports — all many hundreds of pages of them.”

She was Secretary of State. She was a prime mover behind the whole Libyan fiasco. It was her job to make sure that our diplomatic personnel were secure, especially with a diplomatic mission operating in an area, Benghazi, which was becoming increasingly dangerous, what with all the Islamic jihadis streaming into the area. This resulted in multiple attacks on diplomatic personnel from other nations, causing them, including the Brits, to pull out. Their ambassador was attacked multiple times. The news media were pulling out of Benghazi.

And the U.S. diplomatic personnel and our compounds had been attacked several times prior to the 9/11/12 attack.

The presumptive Democratic nominee said the security reports from Benghazi “never reached me” or “came to my attention.”


(CNS News) Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton acknowledged to the House Select Committee on Benghazi on Thursday that of the more than 600 security requests related to Libya and Benghazi that came in in 2012 before the Sept. 11, 2012 terrorist attack none ever reached her desk.

However, Blumenthal’s 150 emails reached her desk, Rep. Mike Pompeo (R-Kan.) said.

Did no one bring up the security situation to the Secretary of State? Did she not ask “say, how are things in Libya?” Were there no meetings to discuss the situation in Libya? Or was Hillary just too busy using her position to enrich herself and her family via her “charity” foundation which spent little on actual charity?
