Barack Obama recently talked tough about the buck stopping with him – but apparently he doesn’t practice what he preaches. In the midst of a ballooning scandal, Hillary Clinton suddenly decided to sacrifice herself and take ‘full accountability’ for the Benghazi failure. Of course she immediately blamed the ‘fog of war’ and ‘security professionals’ — but why would Hillary take the blame instead of Obama?
“Never has said those words after the fact,” Glenn said. “Not on spending. Not on debt. Not on any jobs. Not on broken promises. Certainly not on Libya. Never has he said ‘I’m the President of the United States. I take responsibility for this.’”
With criticism growing, Vice President Joe Biden said during last week’s vice presidential debate that the White House did not know of requests to enhance security at Benghazi, contradicting testimony by State Department employees that requests had been made and rejected. After the debate, the White House said the vice president did not know of the requests because they were handled, as is the practice, by the State Department.
“In the wake of an attack like this, in the fog of war, there’s always going to be confusion,” Clinton said. “And I think it is absolutely fair to say that everyone had the same intelligence. Everyone who spoke tried to give the information that they had. As time has gone on, that information has changed. We’ve gotten more detail, but that’s not surprising. That always happens.”
She added, “What I want to avoid is some kind of political gotcha or blame game.”
“I hate to surprise him now but do not buy this lie from the State Department they didn’t know what was going on. There was a drone taking live pictures. They knew exactly what was going on. I mean I’ve never seen like it.”
Glenn believes there was no way that the White House and the State Department didn’t have a clearer idea of what was happening in Libya.
“This guy is completely unable to be able to conduct his own life without a TelePrompTer. And he might be able to go in the kitchen, and talk with his wife. But he cannot conduct business in his own life without somebody telling him what to say,” Glenn said.
“I’ve never seen anything like Hillary Clinton and what she’s done. In an age where we have instant access. From a phone. You can’t tell me that the leader of the free world didn’t know exactly what was going on in Benghazi when the embassy was attack. Not only were the guys inside posting on gaming sites. You can’t tell me they couldn’t get a satellite phone. You can’t tell me they weren’t aware. You can’t tell me that the President didn’t have access to the drone video when the military sent a drone over the house to know exactly what was going on. If the President, and vice president were unattached and didn’t know – we are in peril. It is his job to protect.”
“They attacked the United States of America, and he went to bed. He knew it was a full-scale attack by terrorists. He knew it had nothing to do with a YouTube video. What had happened to the ambassador he appointed? He didn’t stay up long enough.”
“The American people cannot go back to sleep. We cannot go to sleep on this. Like our President did. Otherwise our Republic will end up the same way as our ambassador did.”
