She was responsible for providing the requested security which first began months in advance of the attack or removing the ambassador and those other Americans at the embassy knowing of repeated warnings of an escalating attack.
She should have taken full responsibility for not having her finger on the pulse of the dangers that were clearly present and taking the appropriate actions so it would have been "prevented" as was stated by the Senate Intelligence report - and those Americans would still be alive today.
Instead she threw up her hands in frustration and declared it didn't make any difference.
Spin it anyway you want.
Hillary was not "responsible for providing the requested security". That responsibility was assigned to AFRICOM and they relied on Stevens who told them he did not need additional security.

Hillary "threw up her hands in frustration" because to do otherwise would have been to place the blame on her friend, Chris Stevens, for his failure to accept the additional security which was offered by AFRICOM. Hillary was not in Libya. Stevens was her eye on the ground and she put her faith in him to make informed, knowledgeable decisions. He failed.

A majority of Americans don't believe Chris Christie's story

""But a new USA Today/Pew Research poll finds that of those Americans following the story, 58 percent do not think Christie was unaware that his aides caused the traffic jams for political payback. Only 32 percent said they believed the governor was unaware of his aides' actions.

Even more striking is how Christie's unfavorable rating has now doubled since last year, from 17 percent to 34 percent.

Ongoing investigations by the New Jersey legislature, the U.S. Attorney's office, and the media will ultimately help determine whether Christie is telling the truth. But so far, Americans are not buying it.""

hard questions?
Scripted Press Conferences and the Lapdog Media
Whether or not reporters were quietly "prepped" for their questions by the White House propaganda staff may never be known. What we do know is that the White House press corps "heels" when it is told to heel and "sits" when it is told to sit. Ever since Ari told a reporter who dared to ask a challenging question that his insubordination "was noted around the White House," the media lapdogs know that they better toss the Dim Son soft balls or they will be exiled to covering oil spills in Armenia.

PDupont, if you have any doubts about the legitimacy of the liberal news media, watch a press conference when a conservative is in power and compare it to press conferences with this president - on the rare occasion he graces them with one, I mean.
Until just recently, there was more giggling and obedient admiration than hard questions. Even when they had to try and act like real journalists in the midst of one abuse of power after another, they soon forgot the hard questions and went back to the business of ignoring those abuses of power, protecting those abusing the power and swept it under the rug telling us "there's nothing to see here."
Under the same circumstances if Obama were a conservative, they'd be calling for blood. If Nixon had been a liberal, Watergate and Nixon's resignation would have never happened.
It's pretty obvious if you choose to see it.
The reason you post here, instead of going to Republican Party meetings in Orlando?

Baby steps, child. Baby steps. You don't change things overnight. You don't change things in four, six, or eight years. Obama has opened a door for blacks that was once closed and that will lead to the opening of the flood gates. Thirty years from now, as the African American youth of today grow up with a new sense of achievement, they will become the engineers and physicists of the future. Just sit back.

Hillary ordered Stevens' security reduced, cancelled security contracts for him, all the while Stevens was requesting increased security.
Hillary watched the videos of the entire attack showing there was never any spontaneous demonstration, then she lied to Congress, lied to the entire country, and lied to Ty Wood's father about the attack. She did her part of the plan to cover up the Al Qaeda attack on the United States in Benghazi.
Hillary Clinton should be in prison.

Eric Nordstrom, the former chief security officer for U.S. diplomats in Libya, concluded from conversations with his superiors at the State Department that "we were not going to get resources until the aftermath of an incident."
Nordstrom said he sent two cables to State Department headquarters in March and July requesting additional diplomatic security agents for Benghazi, but he received no responses. He said the number of U.S. security personnel in Benghazi were kept artificially low even as the State Department recognized the increasing hazards.
Army Lt. Col. Andrew Wood testified to the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, "We were fighting a losing battle for more security officers. We couldn't even keep what we had."
http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/2...
So you're saying Stevens had the power to protect himself but chose not to even after he repeatedly requested more security?
Probably not a good idea for you to talk about dumb rocks. Just saying.
FACT: Stevens refused the offer of additional security just prior to the attack,TWICE. Why do you continually ignore that FACT?

Without a doubt, the State Department headquarters for Near Eastern Affairs was limited by Congress in the amount of resources spent on this Temporary building in Benghazi but the bottom line is....AFRICOM offered additional resources and Stevens, perhaps relying on the CIA annex for protection, refused. In hindsight, a bad decision.

Useless, non-real world training--is typical of a lib's college training:

...Occidental College (annual tuition,$32,800) topped this year’s list, securing two spots in the “Dirty Dozen.”

Occidental’s first-place entry, which is scheduled for the spring semester, is taught by associate professor Jeffrey Tobin in the department of Women’s Studies/Gender Studies and involves such esoteric concepts as “phallologocentrism.”

Mr. Tobin, who also teaches another class called “Critical Theories of Sexuality,” said Occidental students are so eager to enroll in his anatomically specific class that five extra spots were added during registration to help meet the demand, and there is still a waiting list of more than a half-dozen students.

In addition to Mr. Tobin’s class, Occidental also snagged fifth place for its course entitled “Blackness,” which explores such topics as “new blackness,”“critical blackness” and “post-blackness.”

Among other “winners” in YAF’s 11th annual “Dirty Dozen”:

c “Queer Musicology,” University of California-Los Angeles: Associate professor Mitchell Morris instructs students how “sexual difference and complex gender identities in music and among musicians have incited productive consternation,” examining such composers as Franz Schubert and Cole Porter.

•“Mail-Order Brides: Understanding the Philippines in Southeast Asian Context,” at Johns Hopkins University: It is taught by visiting assistant professor Fenella Cannell, author of “Power and Intimacy in the Christian Philippines.”

•“Taking Marx Seriously:‘Should Marx Be Given Another Chance?’” at Amherst College: Professor Pavel Machala’s class made the “Dirty Dozen” list for the second consecutive year.

•“American Dreams/American Realities,” Duke University: Gerald Wilson, dean of Duke’s Trinity College, taught this spring 2006 course, which examined “such myths as ‘rags to riches,’‘beacon to the world,’ and the ‘frontier,’ in defining the American character.” Required readings included socialist philosopher Michael Harrington’s 1962 book,“The Other America,” and then-New York Gov. Mario Cuomo’s keynote address to the 1984 Democratic National Convention. The course is part of Duke’s Hart Leadership Program, created in 1986 with a grant from the family foundation of business executive Milledge A. Hart III.

The courses on the list are mostly electives, many coming from the women’s studies, black studies and history departments.

The goal of the YAF report is to highlight “troubling instances of leftist activism supplanting traditional scholarship,” Mr. Mattera said, explaining that the organization looks at thousands of courses and hundreds of schools to compile the list.
