    I guess so! Wonder if Hillary is counting the hours till she finishes her stint as SOS?

    I think what they learned was, the US should not depend on hired locals nor the host government to provide security when the country and the government is influx and not secure. It was really a stupid, stupid part on the State Dept.

    They had to learn that in a country in such chaos as Libya?

    She did not take responsibility for the reason for the attack ("it was a spontaneous revolt based on a video"). She did say that when the caskets were brought home. She knew at that time that it was a terrorist attack, but I don't think she included that in her "the buck stops with me".


    The big question is ... who sent the UN Ambassador out to 5 talk shows to spread the lie? Was it Hillary and the State Dept. or was it Obama?

    If Hillary knew the real cause of the attack, prior to Rice's talk show tour, H was at least complicit in the cover-up.

    Reading a transcript of the Rush Limbaugh show today ... a caller cited a Lt. Col. David Hunt (retired, I believe, but maybe not) who stated that all embassies have a "panic button" in the event of an attack. That there are 12 monitoring centers that monitor this 24/7. Rush questioned whether the panic button might not yet have been installed in what was a rather new consulate.

    So, another question arises, if there was an alert sent from the consulate, and if the battle lasted 6 hours, why didn't help arrive sooner? I recall mention of a plane (used for such purposes of transport) that had just been removed from service there, causing a delay. The level of incompetence evidenced in lack of preparedness for such a situation seems inconceivably dumb. It's not like this is the first time there has been an embassy in an unstable country.

    Hillary on the morning news right now taking FULL responsibility.
    Kinda feel sorry for her. She knows were the buck stops.
    I think the White House should follow her lead.
    I think she has a "bigger set" than the President, in the way she Maned up just now.
    'speshaly the morning of the comming debate.
    hope sombody in the town hall has a good question.

    its all a calculated mea culpa...it was done the day before the debate and gives BHO some wiggle room, the media still loves their Hillary gal, they will gloss this over and say that she was being the true statesmen

    She cant go down without it affecting him we still dont know who came up with the video lie. Obama repeated it over and over again even after Hillary stopped. He stood there on the apology ad he stood there over the dead bodies lying. Repubs will investigate this and hes going down just like nixon. As a boss you have the duty to know whats going on with your employees if your to busy and cant handle it than your fired! Thats what he gets for skipping intel briefings

    Like I said in an earlier post when in charge you are responsible for everything DONE or Not Done .........Obama is Commander in Chief and he is also President so he is responsible. ....PERIOD.

    Stan said it many many moons ago. Obama will take all the credit for the good but will not accept any responsibility for anything bad! Not his exact words but you get the jist.
