Clinton raises more questions than answers

Last evening Secretary of State Hilary Clinton announced that she should take the blame for the lack of security at our Benghazi consulate.  This statement was in apparent response to the statement of Vice President Joe Biden last week where he claimed that the White House knew nothing about Ambassador Steven’s request for more security.

Mrs. Clinton was also asked about the source of Ambassador Susan Rice’s comments on national television some five days later that the attack was in response to a video, not an act of terrorism.  “You’d have to ask her”, said Mrs. Clinton.  Okay, she was asked.

In an interview Monday with The Washington Post, Rice said she relied on daily updates from intelligence agencies in the days before her television appearances and on a set of talking points prepared for senior members of the administration by intelligence officials.

But, that doesn’t make sense.

 …we know that within a very short time after the murder of our ambassador (an extraordinary occurrence) and others, our intelligence community did have the story straight: This was an organized al-Qaeda attack.

So, if, within hours of the attack, the “intelligence community” knew this was an organized attack, why didn’t any of Ms. Rice’s daily updates mention this very significant fact?

And, if they did, why did Ms. Rice withhold this information from the American public?

    Does anyone out there “in reality” expect anything else from this administration? Any sober person knows there will be nothing but lying and finger pointing till something else takes its place in the news. Like maybe “Romney wins” splashed across the remaining newspapers.

    Who cares about Rice? If Hilary is taking the blame I predict she will soon desert Obama?s sinking ship. She can run clean in 2016.

    If nobody resigned or was fired, then nobody really took responsibility.

    We can do that for them in November.

    Hilary has been thrown under the bus by her husband so long, she just figured that she might as well be thrown by President Obama, as well.

    Saying “I am responsible” without stepping down is alot like saying “I feel your pain” without relieving it.
