Hillary Clinton...fall-guy with a price
By: Diane Sori
I bet just like me, many of you knew this was coming as Secretary of State Hillary Clinton tries to deflect the blame off Obama by becoming the fall-guy for the assault and murders in Benghazi, saying she's the one who is responsible for the security of American diplomatic outposts.
“I take responsibility," Clinton said. "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."
Hate to tell you Hillary but as Arizona Senator John McCain said, "The security of Americans serving our nation everywhere in the world is ultimately the job of the commander-in-chief. The buck stops there."
So Hillary, let’s get something straight here, now, and forever...the security of American diplomats overseas, and the security of the people here in America lies with the president NOT with the Secretary of State!
And while we’re at it... where is the retaliation for the deaths of the 4 Americans, when did that happen...did it happen so fast that I missed it?
"I take this very personally," Clinton said in her statement. "So we're going to get to the bottom of it, and then we're going to do everything we can to work to prevent it from happening again, and then we're going to work to bring whoever did this to us to justice."
Notice that bringing those who MURDERED Ambassador Stevens and the others to justice is LAST on her list of what she’s going to do...LAST...dead LAST!
Like she really cares...Hillary cares as much as Barack HUSSEIN Obama cares...which is NOT at all...oh wait...she, like Obama, cares ONLY how the fallout effects them is what I should say.
And now besides the cover-up we need to ask what will Hillary’s payoff be for allowing herself to be Obama’s scapegoat...rest assured that Hillary is NOT taking a fall for Benghazi without exacting a payoff...a BIG payoff...like maybe becoming the Secretary General of the U(seless) N(ations)...maybe becoming the head of the World Bank...maybe becoming ‘queen’ of the Muslim Brotherhood.
But even with all this NOT unexpected bit of happiness (insert sarcasm here), please really understand what Hillary is saying, “I take responsibility..." NOT...“I take the blame for the security failures leading up to the attack and for how it was initially portrayed by administration officials as spur of the moment violence over a two-bit YouTube video trailer."
And remember that the timing of her confession is oh so convenient...a day before the second presidential debate. This way Obama can bloviate with a straight face, ’who me...Hillary did it...I didn’t know.’
I’ve got some beachfront property in Kansas to sell you if you believe that one.
Bottom line...Obama, in his capacity as president has it as his duty to protect the safety of American diplomats abroad and MUST be held accountable for Benghazi...NOT only accountable but he must be made to answer for it...must be ‘punished’ for it. Ambassador Stevens asked for help more than once, and Ambassador Stevens was MURDERED because he NEVER got the help he asked for.
‘We the People’ must get angry, real gut-wrenching angry so nothing like this is ever allowed to happen again. The time of using smoke and mirrors to divert attention away from this administration’s LIES and cover-ups is over.
And come November 6th this administration will be most likely be over, and that is a good thing for us all.
