Hillary: "The Buck Stops Here, But......"
Today, from Peru, where she is attending some conference on empowering women, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton fell on her sword over Libya-sort of. Admitting the obvious, she accepted responsibility over the disaster in Libya because it could no longer be denied that the State Department had screwed up royally. Yet, she is still trying to gain some sympathy because of "the fog of war". She now sees her role as finding out what went wrong and making sure it never happens again.
Stop right there, Mrs Clinton. First of all, we still don't know why Susan Rice-your subordinate- went before all the Sunday talk shows and said it was a spontaneous protest over a video that went out of control-even though our intelligence sources knew within 24 hours that it was a pre-planned terror attack. Who told Ms Rice to say those things-repeatedly on the news programs?
Secondly, Mrs Clinton; if you are "accepting responsibility" for this disaster, it is not your job to correct the problem.
It is your job to resign.
