Will there be any consequences for Secretary Clinton accepting responsibility for Benghazi attack?
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has accepted responsibility for Benghazi security deficiencies.
Now, who accepts the consequences of responsibility? And what of the disinformation campaign?
Accepting responsibility is only step one. The consequences of failure come second.
Will the second part ever happen? No.
Will Hillary resign? No. Will Hillary suffer any consequence for accepting the "responsibility" for under manning our hottest embassy situation on the 9/11 anniversary? Will she accept responsibilities for the deaths that ensued after requests for additional security? No. Will she be held on misleading the nation as to the causes of the attack. No. This is nothing more than an uncomfortable admission which serves as a diversion.
Will Obama be held for his non attendance of intelligence briefings the week prior to 9/11? Or for flying to Las Vegas on 9/12 for a fund raiser? No. Hillary took the bullet.
This is a vapid "end of story" empty acquiescence. A "Please media, go away", declaration and request. What is necessary now is the consequence of poor decision making and department control which cost lives out there in the "big game". What is necessary is the revelation of who knew what and when. Just like Fast and Furious, somehow "who knew" never comes out. This is political bargaining behind the scenes. We have this on you, and now you will march to our music. It seems to be a more valuable bobble to have in one's political war chest, than to bring to sunlight the facts and the circumstances. In this mode, politicians all appear to have a mutual understanding amongst themselves. Kinda like, "we are all in the same actor's guild, we all make mistakes".
And maybe that is the BIG problem in the American political system. You, Hillary, won't get hurt, but now we own you for a while. The Public will never know. Their right to know seems to have been lost somewhere.
Witness the Jesse Jr. charade. His big crime is attempting to buy the Senate seat. But he was suddenly struck by bipolar disorder symptoms within a week of his water carrier going state's evidence. He disappears. Deals seem to have been made. Suddenly he now is accused of decorating his house with campaign funds. From murder to a speeding ticket. But Jesse, tip toe from now on. We gottcha.
Hillary's "acceptance" or responsibility is only step one. Step two is consequence to Hillary. I am guessing this will never occur. But someone will own her for a while.
Walk softly Mrs. Clinton.
