    The right conveniently forgetting the compartmentalized nature of delegating authority across the executive branch, republican or democrat, nothing goes all the way to the top, routine matters have a guy who is not the president in charge. These attempts to tie executive branch fuckups to the president are as futile as it was to tie "faulty intelligence" to the Bush administration.

    delegating authority does not excuse leaders from responsibility.....

    why wouldn't oversight make sure to protect U.S. Embassies in countries at war.....?

    what is the purpose of leadership anyhow.....?

    The Congressional Hearing Regarding the Benghazi Incident.

    Eric Nordstrom, the one-time regional security officer, told the House Oversight Committee that he had a disheartening conversation with the regional director of the agency's Bureau of Near Eastern Affairs when he requested additional manpower for the Benghazi facility.

    As the four-hour hearing drew to a close, Nordstrom divulged he had verbally asked for significantly more help -- 12 agents -- but the officer from the Bureau of Near Eastern Affairs had rebuffed his request.
    U.S. official says superiors worked against effort to boost Benghazi security - CNN.com

    You need read this link and see the idiotic excuses made by the Department of State.

    I agree BUT, 5 days later despite established facts to the contrary they sent their number 1 ambassador to the world, Susan Rice to ALL 5 Sunday shows, and her statements were flatly untrue. period.

    someone told her to and that and person is whom we need to hear from and, in addition, who told them to tell her....


    either Clinton or obama have to answer for this, I suspect as you allude it is Clinton, its her shop, BUT they cannot sack her or piss her off or Bill will disappear when they need him most.

    Ergo; they are engaged in a cover up as they play musical chairs or concoct an opéra bouffe of shifting blame , turning it into a mish mash so no one appears truly responsible, so no culpability can be attached directly, there fore it has now become political, and thats on them.

    Basically because Spielbergs of the planets are running the show. Now under the Clinton's and hang in with me here there was a couple who advised both Clintons out of Hollywood.

    Linda cleaned up Hillary to make her "presentable" to America.

    She was hated. Linda made her better.
