Benghazi, Libya Debacle

It has been clear for several days that the Obama administration had plans to throw Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton under the bus. Much to my surprise is the breaking story that she took the responsibility for the murder. http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/OTUS/hillary-clinton-takes-responsibility-consulate-security-lapses/story?id=17487223#.UH3HGq7hctg

I want to be very fair here. I spent over 40 years in the corporate world and I witnessed many bad to disastrous events happen. While the tendency is to blame the head of the department or company, the reality is that those managers to know every detail of every employee at every moment. That is what reports and meetings are designed to accomplish. At Ms. Clinton’s level, the amount of security personnel is relegated to a department. If during a briefing of that subject Ms. Clinton wants those numbers adjusted, then action is taken.

I believe that if the White House had owned up to the situation, announced an investigation; the American people would have been satisfied momentarily. For the White House to blatantly lie about the situation, form a story about riots and a bad video, is without excuse. Add to that the ongoing lie upon lie about the situation, only for it to come out in the hearing that the State Department knew all along that it was a deliberate, well-planned, military style attack on the Embassy, made their surreptitious decisions even worse. Then to attack the Romney Campaign for their comments makes a mockery of the Office of the President.

I agree with Laura Ingraham when she said on FOC News Sunday that if this had been a Republican President, the MSM (Main Stream Media) would be all over the story and camped out at every site to get answers. Where are they now?

I admire Secretary of State Clinton taking responsibility. At least someone in the Obama administration has the courage of her convictions.
