Is anyone going to take responsibility for what happened in Benghazi?

http://cnsnews.com/news/article/libyan-militia-hired-protect-us-benghazi-mission-was-strike-sept-11-protest-over-salary

Now it's the Libyan Militia's fault.  

Will Hillary Clinton ever testify in the Benghazi investigation?

  • Hind sight is easy. We should learn what we can from the situation, but why does someone always have to take the fall.


    SERIOUSLY?


    I thought I had seen it all, but this is a new low. "Taking the fall" is called being responsible and admitting you made a mistake. Yes, you should learn from your mistakes. The first lesson is should be accountability. FOUR people were MURDERED and no one should "have to take the fall"?

  • Nope. That seems to be the trendy thing to do these days - blame anyone and anything you can rather than the people directly involved in making a decision.

  • "I'm certain they are just running out the clock to let the story lose as much interest as possible before they allow any bit of truth to come out."

    Yeah, I'm willing to bet that's exactly what they're doing. The truth will come out eventually, whether they want it to or not, but their hope is that by then we will have forgotten all about it. Of course, it'll probably be years before we hear anything that resembles the truth.

  • RyansMom because our government watched it play out in real time and did nothing. Because someone gave the order to stand down and could have saved those who died, but did not. The ONLY person who can give that order is the President himself. Because our current government knew it was a terrorist attack and went on national television and deliberately  lied to the American public that it was a video trying to cover up that fact that they did absolutely nothing to intervene and try to save American lives.  When the president himself to an OATH when he took OFFICE to PROTECT AMERICAN LIVES!!!  Knowing the truth someone on the inside came up with blaming it on a video to distract us from knowing the truth.

  • Not if they can help it! Hell, he's spent 4 years blaming everything on Bush, why should he take responsibility now.

    I don't think Hillary will testify if she can avoid it. Maybe deep down she'd like to and put the blame where it should fall, but knows she might end up being the scapegoat and she'd have to kiss any hope of running in 2016 goodbye.

    We know from Whitewater, and various other things, that the Clintons are masters at getting away with things. Maybe she knows that this would be the tipping point.

  • This was my first thought as well, but then I wonder how in the world she could run in 2016 with such a huge issue left wide open. It would surely lead to questions later and doubts that she would be able to be an effective leader of our military.

    That will be the interesting thing to watch once Kerry is in and she's out. My guess is a deal has already been made, and someone mainly irrelevant is going to end up having it pinned on them, freeing up her presidential run and other assorted people to get on about their business. I'll also put it out there that when that does happen, it will be on a Friday afternoon before a holiday weekend.

  • It will be anyone that isn't a liberal in government right now. They aren't very good as recognizing their part of any issue or taking responsibility (sense they don't think they do anything wrong.)
