    Damn Right.....think they will give us Susan's Rice head on that Silver Platter? I bet if Obama gets hard pressed he will ask for her resignation and burn that bridge like he has done with all the others.

    I find it odd to that some blame Bush for Katrina but Clinton for Benghazi.

    This is a valid point; but the amount of security staff at the Benghazi embassy probably isn't his thing.
    Assuming he even knew tensions were heightened (and I do).
    He would assume Hillary was on it.
    Hillary would be both the first to know of any request and the ongoing, daily, even hourly, embassy condition.
    That's why I said n the OP it "sounds Absolutely True", though the timing is convenient.
    It would have even been more convenient though before either of the First two debates.

    Which is why I went straight for Rice.....who got out played by the French and Brits with Libya. Then the Russians with Syria and anything else. Still it is Obama's Foreign Policy and these are Allegedly his top people chosen for the job.

    They have failed!!!!!

    Is it his thing to question staffing, or assume Hillary was indeed on it.
    Hillary would be both the first to know of any request and the ongoing, daily, even hourly, embassy condition.

    I'm thinking it would be something like this:

    Intelligence Report: Escalating security concerns in Middle Eastern locations at Country X, Y, & Z, relating to issues A, B & C.
    Obama: Alright, security team, State Dept, how are we addressing these issues?
    Security/SD: We're doing D, E, & F.

    And then, of course, there's follow up at a later date regarding the state of things as relates to intelligence reports.

    I'm not saying Obama should be expected to have a finger on every pulse, but Afghanistan/Pakistan, Syria/Turkey, and Libya seem like areas which would be of significant interest, given the current state of things. Ensuring that all departments are adequately responding to needs made apparent through intelligence briefings seems like a key step.

    In all fairness, I must admit, I'd rather go on talk shows that love me.

    Re: Clinton Accepts Blame for Benghazi

    Secretary of State Hillary Clinton appears to be sacrificing herself for the sake of the administration after she took the blame for the attack on the U.S. Embassy in Benghazi and controversial aftermath. To put things quite literally, she told a CNN reporter on Monday, just a few minutes after landing in Peru for a visit, very plainly, "I take responsibility" for what happened in Libya on September 11. CNN makes it clear that she "insisted President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden are not involved in security decisions." With the election right around the corner and everything, Clinton added, "I want to avoid some kind of political gotcha."

    Just because Clinton's on the mat doesn't mean that the Romney-led slugfest against the Obama administration will let up. The Republican candidate already slammed Biden for saying said at the vice presidential debate last week that "we weren't told they wanted more security" at the consulate in Benghazi. And the pundits are already steering Romney towards this incident as Obama's big foreign policy weakness at the upcoming presidential debate.

    So there's Bill Clinton, touring the country for Obama, while his wife gets sacrificed to the wolves. What a man.

    Well anybody with at least minimal brain function should have realized that Katrina was mostly the Mayor's fault for refusing to put the buses in use for the evacuation, but that is a rant for another day.

    No Obama has failed in hiring them and putting them in positions they were not qualified for. But that is no surprise as Obama is not qualified to be president.
