Hillary did take the responsibility

citing the levels of security forces at an embassy is generally managed by secuity experts that work for the state department. They determine the threat level and assign forces as needed. Not everything lands on the desk of the secretary of state nor does it land on the desk of the president or vice president.

 

Of course I hear all the criticism of Obama being asleep at the switch on this matter, but i don't recall such criticism when Reagan had all those marines killed in Lebanon. Nor did I hear much right wing criticism when Dubya was unprepared for the first 9/11 when 3000 americans were killed. Ask Richard Clarke about his inability to get the DUBYA administration to take the El Caida threat seriously.

Re: Hillary did take the responsibility

If she is responsible she should resign.

 

Obama wasn't asleep at the switch, he attempted to use one thing to cover up another.

Re: Hillary did take the responsibility

yeah, Reagan was contrite about our loss, and got things changed. No coverup occured then. Bush kept other cities from getting attacked on his watch , too, and set up the mechanism to finally get Bin Ladin.

Reagan pulled them out. And then sent a space shuttle into orbit under cold weather conditions and an o-ring leaked fuel and the space craft exploded killing 7 americans. Many think there was a hurry up to get that shuttle into orbit to distract from the lebanon fiasco.

Bush neglected advice from Richard clarke who forewarned them of Al Queda targeting AMERICAS HOMELAND.

Myth #6: Political pressure forced the launch
There were pressures on the flight schedule, but none of any recognizable political origin. Launch officials clearly felt pressure to get the mission off after repeated delays, and they were embarrassed by repeated mockery on the television news of previous scrubs, but the driving factor in their minds seems to have been two shuttle-launched planetary probes. The first ever probes of this kind, they had an unmovable launch window just four months in the future. The persistent rumor that the White House had ordered the flight to proceed in order to spice up President Reagan’s scheduled State of the Union address seems based on political motivations, not any direct testimony or other first-hand evidence. Feynman personally checked out the rumor and never found any substantiation. If Challenger's flight had gone according to plan, the crew would have been asleep at the time of Reagan's speech, and no communications links had been set up.

Re: Hillary did take the responsibility

The only kryptonite, was when Romney, opened his mouth! The President set him up, and he walked into it like a closed glass door! Beautiful! The Bully of Cranbrook, played the roll last night and it came out loud and clear.

Re: Hillary did take the responsibility

All of hillary's adult life she has been dumped on. When bill was on all his sex trips hillary was always there defending the bullets. Everywhere she has been she has had to get dirty for a man. Why would you want someone like that as president?
