Clinton: I'm responsible for diplomats' security

It is interesting that Clinton left the country before "taking responsibility" for the security lapse, but in the same sentence she said "security professionals" took care of security there so she is trying to deflect responsibility from herself.

Also, in the video clip below, the reporter says: "The Intelligence Community initially called it a protest. The State Department never did. You never did." Really? How many video clips of Clinton are out there where she says the attack was due to a YouTube video slamming Islam? She even blamed the video when she and Obama received the bodies of the four Americans that were murdered by the Muslims.

Does Secretary Clinton know how to speak the truth? Does Obama? Do any of our elected officials? These people are dangerous for America. - Reggie

Lima, Peru (CNN) -- Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Monday tried to douse a political firestorm over the deadly assault on a U.S. diplomatic mission in Libya, saying she's responsible for the security of American diplomatic outposts.

"I take responsibility," Clinton said during a visit to Peru. "I'm in charge of the State Department's 60,000-plus people all over the world, 275 posts. The president and the vice president wouldn't be knowledgeable about specific decisions that are made by security professionals. They're the ones who weigh all of the threats and the risks and the needs and make a considered decision."

But she said an investigation now under way will ultimately determine what happened at the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, where Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans were killed on September 11.

"I take this very personally," Clinton said. "So we're going to get to the bottom of it, and then we're going to do everything we can to work to prevent it from happening again, and then we're going to work to bring whoever did this to us to justice."

The attack took place in the eastern Libyan city that was the cradle of that country's 2011 revolution. Obama administration officials initially blamed a mob inflamed by a U.S.-produced movie that mocked Islam and its Prophet Mohammed, but later said the storming of the consulate appears to have been a terrorist attack.

Breitbart: Hillary Falls On Her Sword Over Benghazi

Rush Limbaugh: Right. That's it. That's how it happened. Hillary, it always comes down to Hillary. I have never seen a woman so dumped on by men in my life. I have never seen a woman take the blame for more screw-ups by men in my life. I mean, we're talking doormat here. We're talking doormat and supposed feminist leader.

Now, if you listen very carefully to what Hillary said, she flew off to Peru to take the hit. If you listen very carefully to what she said, you will notice that while she took responsibility, she did not accept any blame, and in the world these people live in, you parse words that precisely, that's significant. She didn't take the blame. She said, quote, "I'm responsible for the State Department, for the more than 60,000 people around the world. The decisions about security are made by security professionals." So, in other words, Hillary said she didn't make any of these bad decisions that led to the consulate not being able to defend itself. The security professionals did. That's taking responsibility Clinton style. She takes the heat off of Barry, President Kardashian, but she doesn't take the blame.
