As much as the Democrats might wish this story will end the cover up of Bengazi, it won’t:
Clinton: I’m responsible for diplomats’ security
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.”
There are two very good reason why this story doesn’t ring credible.
First, we already know that the intelligence community was sounding the alarms about the threats in Libya. PJMedia ran a story about threats to the Libyan ambassador on September 10th. So it defies credibility that PJ knew and the U.S. intelligence community did not. Which means that the President knew — even if he was only reading the daily briefs. One way or the other, Obama would have known about the threats and the multiple attacks in Libya before September 11th. If he didn’t, that is among the strongest reasons yet to impeach this President.
Second, the President is the chief executive. He is responsible for EVERYTHING that happens in the executive branch — and that includes the State Department. If Hillary has gone so rogue or is so incompetent as to not report the threats and attacks that had happened in Libya to her President, THAT is reason for Obama to be impeached.
Either way, this story actually confirms gross negligence and incompetence in the White House, both of which must ultimately be laid at the feet of Barack Obama and no one else. Barry, it’s time to put on your big boy shoes. You asked for this job, now wear the blame for your own failures and stop blaming them on the people who work for you. Otherwise, you might actually end up in one of your own attack ads.
