    She says, "I take responsibility." What does that mean? Will she be fired, imprisoned or just allowed to say, "next" and continue to go about her business?

    What are the repercussions to being "responsible"? Is there a consequence?

    Five things we learned from the Benghazi hearings
    By Elise Labott, CNN Foreign Affairs Reporter - updated 9:16 AM EST, Thu January 24, 2013

    Washington (CNN) -- Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Wednesday took on Republican congressional critics of her department's handling of the deadly September terrorist attack in Libya.

    Conservative GOP members challenged Clinton on the lack of security at the diplomatic compound in Benghazi as well as the erroneous account that the attack grew spontaneously from a protest over an anti-Islam film produced in the United States.

    At two hearings, which together totaled more than five hours, Clinton acknowledged a "systemic breakdown" cited by an independent review of issues leading up to the armed assault and said her department was taking additional steps to increase security at U.S. diplomatic facilities.

    Here are five things we learned from the hearings before the Senate Foreign Relations and House Foreign Affairs committees.


    1. What Clinton did the day of the Benghazi attack

    Clinton spent the better part of last September 11 trying to get a handle on security at several other U.S. embassies in the Middle East where anti-American protests were in full swing over an anti-Muslim film produced in the United States.

    She said the U.S. embassy was "under assault" by crowds trying to scale the wall. American embassies in Yemen and Tunisia were also facing a "serious threat. Clinton personally called the president of Tunisia, she said, to "beg him to send reinforcements, which he did, to finally save our embassy."

    By 4 p.m. that day, Clinton was notified about the Benghazi attack. In the coming hours, she was in meetings and spoke with staff, the American Embassy in Tripoli and other U.S. officials.

    Directing the U.S. response from the State Department, Clinton stayed in touch with officials across the administration and with the Libyan government.

    She instructed her staff to "consider every option, to just break down the doors of the Libyan officials to get as much security support as we possibly could."

    Clinton said in the hours and days following the attack in Benghazi, there were "no delays in decision-making. No denials of support from Washington or from our military," something an independent board established to review the matter cited in its report.

    2. U.S. diplomatic posts in some 20 countries under threat

    Clinton said threats to U.S. diplomatic posts are ongoing. "Sitting here today, we probably have at least 20 other posts that are under a serious threat environment as I speak to you," she told senators. "We operate in places where we know that our facilities are being surveilled for potential attacks where we have a steady Intel stream of plotting."

    Clinton detailed what the State Department has done to begin implementing the 29 recommendations of the Accountability Review Board to improve security at diplomatic posts in high-threat areas, in addition to a few of her own.

    Specifically, Clinton has appointed a team, led by her deputy, to focus on tightening security, sent joint teams of military special forces and diplomatic security threat analysts to more than a dozen high-risk posts and appointed a senior official to focus exclusively on those areas.

    The State Department is also working to streamline requests for security so they make their way more quickly up the chain of leadership.

    Despite the threat, Clinton stressed the importance of U.S. leadership and diplomatic presence in the Middle East. "We've come a long way in the past four years, and we cannot afford to retreat now," Clinton told senators. "When America is absent, especially from unstable environments, there are consequences. Extremism takes root, our interests suffer, our security at home is threatened."

    3. Clinton not shying away from a fight

    Clinton grew emotional and held back tears when talking about U.S. personnel killed in the Benghazi attack. "For me, this is not just a matter of policy, it's personal. I stood next to President Obama as the Marines carried those flag-draped caskets off the plane at Andrews," Clinton said as she choked back tears. "I put my arms around the mothers and fathers, the sisters and brothers, the sons and daughters, and the wives left alone to raise their children."

    But she lost patience with the focus of Republican senators on talking points used by U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice on the next Sunday's talk shows that focused on a protest at the U.S. post in Benghazi, which turned out not to have taken place.

    When Sen. Ron Johnson pressed Clinton on why the State Department didn't call U.S. personnel who were evacuated from Benghazi to determine whether there was a protest, Clinton took him to task. "With all due respect, the fact is we had four dead Americans," Clinton reminded Johnson as she banged her hand on the table.

    "Was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk one night decided they'd go kill some Americans? What difference, at this point, does it make? It is our job to figure out what happened and do everything we can to prevent it from ever happening," she said.

    4. Militants in Mali and Algeria have arms from Libya

    Clinton warned the security situation in northern Mali, where international forces are battling militants, has been exacerbated by flow of weapons from neighboring Libya following the fall of Moammar Gadhafi.

    She said there was "no doubt" such weapons were also used in an attack by militants on an Algerian natural gas plant last week.

    She noted the aftermath of the Arab spring has changed power dynamics and stretched security forces across the region thin.

    Calling the campaign struggle against the Islamic fighters a necessary response to "a very serious, ongoing threat," Clinton said the "United States cannot permit northern Mali to become a safe-haven for Islamist rebels that could eventually pose a more direct threat to U.S. interests."

    Noting the increased strength of al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb, the regional affiliate of the al Qaeda network fighting along side local Malians, Clinton warned that the United States must prepare for the possibility that groups like AQIM could threaten direct attacks on U.S. interests as they gain power.

    "You can't say because they haven't done something they're not going to do it," Clinton said. "This is not only a terrorist syndicate, it is a criminal enterprise. So make no mistake about it, we've got to have a better strategy."

    5. Republicans still aren't buying it

    While their tone was generally respectful, several Republican senators made clear they were unsatisfied with Clinton's answers.

    Sen. John McCain, R-Arizona, one of the administration's toughest critics since the Benghazi attack, took Clinton to task for what he considered lackluster attention to the growing threat in Benghazi. McCain wanted to know why Clinton hadn't read a cable from Ambassador Christopher Stevens warning that the mission in Benghazi could not survive a sustained assault.

    Sen. Rand Paul said it would have been an offense worthy of firing Clinton had he been president.

    McCain also blasted Clinton's answers to questions about the administration's claim that a protest had taken place in Benghazi. "The American people deserve to know answers, and they certainly don't deserve false answers," McCain told Clinton.

    Clinton was more diplomatic with her old friend, saying she respected his strong feelings for the incident given his own relationship with Stevens, but that they disagreed about what happened and when it happened with respect to explaining events.

    In addition to lessons the State Department learned about improving security at diplomatic posts, Clinton, who called the Benghazi attack an act of terrorism since Day One, suggested the administration might learn another lesson. "Just withhold. Don't say what you don't know for sure until it's finally decided."

    http://www.cnn.com/2013/01/23/politi...3A+Politics%29

    ... Clinton, who called the Benghazi attack an act of terrorism since Day One...
    LIE.


    The father of one of the former Navy SEALs killed in the terrorist attack on the U.S. mission in Benghazi, Libya says President Barack Obama wouldn’t even look him in the eye and Vice President Joe Biden was disrespectful during the ceremony when his son’s body returned to America. He also says the White House’s story on the attack doesn’t pass the smell test.

    Charles Woods, father of Tyrone Woods, called into “The Glenn Beck Program” on TheBlazeTV Thursday and recounted his interactions with the president, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Biden at the ceremony for the Libya victims at Andrews Air Force Base in Maryland.

    >snip<

    And Hillary’s comments were really the most egregious of all – because she promised Woods that the United States of America would exact vengeance on the guilty party who……created the YouTube video (?!)

    After apologizing for his loss, Woods said Clinton told him that the U.S. would “make sure that the person who made that film is arrested and prosecuted.”

    Obama Cracks Joke When Asked About Four Dead Americans In Benghazi
    by Larry O'Connor28 Jan 2013, 3:57 AM PDT

    When Steve Kroft of CBS News finally got around to asking President Obama and Secretary of State Clinton about the terrorist attacks in Benghazi resulting in the death of four brave Americans, President Obama decided it would be a good time to go for laughs.

    You know, I remember Bob Gates, you know, first thing he said to me, I think maybe first week or two that I was there and we were meeting in the Oval Office and he, obviously, been through seven presidents or something. And he says, "Mr. President, one thing I can guarantee you is that at this moment, somewhere, somehow, somebody in the federal government is screwing up." (Laughter)
    http://landing.newsinc.com/shared/vi...e&VID=24280970

    It's disgusting to write-off the complete and total failure in Benghazi as nothing more than "someone in the federal government screwing up," it's even more enraging to do so in such a casual and flip way that is meant to engender laughter.

    Four Americans are dead. They died while they fought off al-Qaeda terrorists whom President Obama assured us were "on the run" thanks to his leadership. They died waiting for help that never came.

    It isn't funny, Mr. President. You're right, somebody in the federal government screwed up. You just don't realize who it was.

    '60 Minutes' Obama, Clinton interview heavy on laughs, light on substance
    By Dan Gainor - Published January 28, 2013

    If CBS ever needs a softball team, they should sign Steve Kroft. The veteran newsman filled nearly three fourths of his big interview with President Obama and outgoing Secretary of State Hillary Clinton with easy questions (11 out of 15). So much so that laughter was more commonplace that any challenging questions.

    For media watchers, the much-ballyhooed half-hour was a waste of good interviewing time. Kroft only threw four mildly tough questions at the power duo and two of those were still fairly easy health questions aimed at Clinton. Only the last two questions tackled Libya, Syria and conservative criticisms that there has been “an abdication of the United States on the world stage.”

    Kroft then let Obama dodge questions of his failure in Syria and let stand Obama’s bizarre assertion that the revolution in Egypt has turned out well. “When it comes to Egypt, had it not been for the leadership we showed, you might have seen a different outcome there,” said Obama.

    Had Kroft not wasted the entire first two thirds of his interview on slow pitch, he might have thrown a fastball about the ongoing violence there now, the Muslim Brotherhood’s power grab, threats to Israel and bigoted comments from Obama’s buddy Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi. (Just hours before the pre-recorded broadcast, Morsi declared a state of emergency in three provinces as 50 people had been killed in rioting.)

    It was the questions that weren’t asked that left viewers wondering if Kroft reads international news. What about tensions between China and its neighbors and U.S. allies Japan, Taiwan and South Korea? Or the increased tensions over the Falklands? Or that pesky little would-be nuclear state of Iran? Or how about U.S. involvement in Mali or terrorism in Algieria? Maybe even our relations with our nearest neighbors Canada, which is waiting on word about pipeline approval, and Mexico which is wondering about fast and furious?

    CBS had certainly built up to the event with pre-show promotion that included the network’s Bob Schieffer remarking how unusual it was for president’s to share the stage with anyone. In that vein, Kroft began by reminding viewers that of the Obama-Clinton “rivalry that is one of the richest in American history.” Someone needs to get Kroft a better history book. Even Obama admitted that the pair agreed on policy.

    Kroft’s questions weren’t just softballs. More than half resulted in laughter from Obama or Clinton and sometimes both. A couple were so bad that even Kroft laughed as well.

    The most embarrassing one was a public relations person’s dream as Kroft reflected how he had been with both candidates back in 2008. “That was a very tough, bitter race and I’m going to spare you really some of the things that you said about each other during the campaign,” to which even he laughed.

    He laughed again when he asked about Obama’s support for Clinton. “What’s the, I have to ask you, what’s the date of expiration on this endorsement?” Both Clinton and Obama’s responses were equally sickening. Clinton threw out an “Oh, Steve…” and Obama commented, “You guys in the press are incorrigible.”

    This wasn’t the first embarrassing Kroft interview of Obama. Back before the election, “60 Minutes” ran another interview but left out key elements where Kroft asked Obama if the Libya attack had been by terrorists. Obama dodged and CBS dodged even more, releasing that full interview with less than 24 hours before Election Day.

    Kirsten Powers: 'Alarming That Obama Thinks the Sucking Up CBS Did Was Journalism,
    But Fox News Is the Problem'

    That Obama-Clinton interview looked just like “state-run media propaganda”
    posted at 1:11 pm on January 28, 2013 by Erika Johnsen

    President Obama and outgoing Secretary of State Clinton sat down together for a 60 Minutes interview, aired last night, that I’d say was approximately zero parts hard-hitting foreign-policy discussion and all parts mutually complementary chucklefest (marking the first time the president has sat down for a joint interview with anyone other than the FLOTUS, by the way):

    http://www.cbsnews.com/video/watch/?id=50139839n

    Yes, we get it: You two are great buddies, you’ve enjoyed an [arguably, hem hem] successful foreign-policy working partnership throughout Obama’s first term, and everything between you personally and professionally is hunky-dory. Kirsten Powers, et al, were decidedly not impressed with the whole softball-lobbing spectacle on Fox News this morning, and also wondered — what does this level of all-too-friendly endorsement mean for Obama’s loyal vice president? :

    It was really something you would expect from like, the state-run media. It was that kind of level of propaganda as far as I’m concerned. … I can understand maybe in agreeing to the interview, letting them have maybe one softball question in the beginning and then move on to more important things. This was a joke. Just not challenging basic things like the president claiming that Hillary’s been a great secretary of state in part because they have dismantled Al Qaeda. Now, I’m sorry, is anyone paying attention to what’s going on in North Africa? Why is the president not asked about Algeria, Mali, Libya? These are front and center in the news right now.
    Bonus, Politico has a handy roundup of Clinton’s evolved “will she run?” answers: http://www.politico.com/story/2013/0...016-86804.html

    “I’ve said I really don’t believe that that’s something I will do again. I am so grateful I had the experience of doing it before.” — Dec. 12, 2012, in an interview with ABC News’ Barbara Walters.

    “I am — thankfully, knock on wood — not only healthy but have incredible stamina and energy. I just wanna see what else is out there.” — asked in the same Walters’ interview if her health would prevent her from running.

    “I think that, you know, look, obviously the president and I care deeply about what’s going to happen for our country in the future. And I don’t think, you know, either he or I can make predictions about what’s going to happen tomorrow or the next year.” — Jan. 27, in a joint interview with President Barack Obama on CBS’s “60 Minutes.”

    Clinton Blames Bush for Benghazi Disaster
    Posted on January 31, 2013

    In an “exit” interview with Fox News’ Greta Van Susteren, outgoing Secretary of State Hillary Clinton continued the theme that, during the Bush administration, requests for monies from Congress to secure embassies and consulates were rejected.

    When asked by Van Susteren whether, in the wake of the Benghazi attack in which four American diplomats were murdered, Americans could now feel safe or satisfied that our consulates, embassies, and diplomats are secure, Clinton responded:

    Well, as to the first question, you know, the accountability review board made a set of recommendations. We are embracing and implementing all of them, and making sure that we apply them.

    Now, it’s not all a question of money. I am the first to say that. You know, you have to have the right people and the right job, making the right decisions. But money is a factor. And ever since the Bush administration, our requests for security monies from Congress have not been met. So you’ve had to make priority decisions. And it’s been difficult.

    So I am determined to leave the State Department safer and stronger when I walk out the door. And I know that John Kerry will just pick up the ball and run with it.
    In October, former Deputy Assistant Secretary for Diplomatic Security Charlene Lamb testified that the size of the attack, and not the money, was the central issue. When asked, at that hearing, whether there was any budget consideration that led her not to increase the security force, Lamb responded, “No,” and added, “This was an unprecedented attack in size.” http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2013...enghazi-cable/

    In response to yet another question about budgetary issues, Lamb replied, “Sir, if it’s a volatile situation, we will move assets to cover that.”

    However, during her testimony last week, Clinton said that the Accountability Review Board (ARB) found that budget issues played a role in the failure to secure the consulate. “That’s why you have an independent group like an ARB; that’s why it was created to look at everything,” Clinton said. http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2013...enghazi-cable/

    Republican lawmakers, however, said that suggestions that the consulate in Benghazi was not secured because of finances were politically-based. They observed that the State Department has spent millions on lower-priority projects that could have been spent on security.

    http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Journal...ecure-Benghazi

    comments

    So true and in the end why we will lose this argument as well.

    All anyone has to do is ask Ms. Clinton if money was tight, why didn’t she pull some of the millions from the embassies who used MILLIONS tiring to “green up” several European capitals?

    Don’t know that story? Thanks media again. Look up US Embassy’s go green on google or something and see how we spent MILLIONS converting our fleet vehicles and charging stations at Vienna and other extremely low-risk high-fun places.

    Maybe some $ could have been used so that our guys didn’t have to fight off savage animals for SEVEN hours as Clinton and Obama watched our hero’s run out of bullets (I assume) before dieing at the hands of these POS who most likely got their guns from Odumber in the 1st place.

    This whole thing makes me sick

    ...

    What Hilary and Obama do not want us to know now the whole truth. ( that I know to be true). The terrorists that attacked the Embassy came from Mali. Us Forces trained, armed with all weapons ,( even body armor) and tactical and strategic planning on anti-terrorists techniques ( even how to interrogate terrorists) allowing them to see how we work. The POTUS could not, cannot , admit we caused the attack and supplied the enemy.

    ..

    You are right. BO has been President for 4 years and the Democrats were in control of Congress from 2006 through 2010. So NOW who is to blame?

    And in his second term, Bush signed virtually EVERY piece of legislation put on his desk by Congress.

    While I'm not surprised at Greta just throwing softballs (Hillary wouldn't go on the show without pre-scripted easy questions), Hillary's answer was the proverbial hanging curve ball and Greta should have hit a line drive right back at Hillary's head.

    I wish Judge Napolitano or John Stossel would have given that interview. I much prefer seeing Hillary squirm and shrill under tough questioning, than cackle and lie her way through yet another "see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil" interview.

    Jeezus, talk about the "protected class" in America. Hillary is the very definition of it

    I know how to save a lot of money.

    First we will treat the federal government the same way they have treated the victims of hurricane sandy: no lights, no heat, no running water, very little food, loss of their clothes, transportation, savings, salaries etc

    second stop all presidential flights to chicago, hawaii, martha's vineyard, europe, mexico...and california etc since the media reports that the president hasn't had a vacation

    take away all expense accounts where the taxpayers paid exorbitant bills for luxury dinners for our elected officials.

    make all elected officials go on obamacare and have to pay out of pocket for it.

    Ok I think I have found money that can go into protecting americans who would otherwise become victims thru the lack of money.

    Now, let's replace those who are dysfunctional in government.......
