Responsibility

Clinton takes responsibility for the security at the US consulate in Lybia.”I take responsibility,” she told CNN. “I’m in charge of the State Department’s 60,000-plus people all over the world (at) 275 posts. The president and the vice president wouldn’t be knowledgeable about specific decisions that are made by security professionals. They’re the ones who weigh all of the threats and the risks and the needs and make a considered decision.”Last month the US consulate were attacked by Libyan extremists, four people were killed including the US ambassador. She said Monday that the security at all of America’s diplomatic mission abroad is her job.

She also told FOX News that “the decisions about security are made by security professionals.”

Bloomberg News reported Sunday that Ambassador Stevens’ father said he believes his son’s death is being investigated adequately and that it would be “abhorrent to make this into a campaign issue.”
