Apparently the buck stops with Hillary Clinton and not the President…

CNN reports that Hillary Clinton has taken responsibility for the assault in Benghazi.on September 11 that left a U.S. Ambassador and three Americans dead.  Check out the below video of the report.

The President, Vice President, and Eric Holder need to see this as a teachable moment in regards to leadership.  Leaders take responsibility for the actions of those under them.  They don’t blame others for failures and they don’t rush in to take credit of the successes of their people.  Although I believe Hillary is doing the right thing, I also believe the buck doesn’t stop with her in regards to this terrible event.  The buck stops with the President and if President Obama had an ounce of integrity he would have stepped up and taken responsibility for the actions of those he has delegated authority to.  A leader would have accepted responsibility instead of allowing one of his subordinates take the blame for this failure.  And yet that’s exactly what the President has done.  He has put distance between him and the Benghazi terrorist attack by throwing the intelligence community and the State Department under the bus.  Folks leaders don’t act like this.  Leaders inspire through example.  Leaders unite instead of divide.  The buck does stop with the leader and no one else because the leader accepts the risks and takes responsibility for failures.  Can you honestly tell me that the President’s actions are those of a leader?

The President and his administration has failed on multiple fronts in regards to this terrorist act.  He has lied to the American people and in the end we are still no closer to understanding why this happened.  It has been over a month since the attack and I still have more questions than answers about it.  There is something seriously wrong with that.  Four American citizens were murdered and we don’t even know why our ambassador was in Benghazi on the anniversary of 9/11. No one in the media has asked the question.  I applaud Hillary Clinton for stepping up and taking responsibility; however the buck doesn’t stop with her.  It stops with the man who is her boss.  Leaders step up in times of crisis. They don’t point fingers and hide from the truth.  It’s time for the President to step up, do the right thing, and accept responsibility.  If not, then it’s time for him to go.

    Well said. Though this falls specifically under the SoS….a competent Administration would have presented and unified front from the beginning.

    The Leader From Behind is not a leader. As for Hillary, I will give her the benefit of the doubt for now. However, she never struck me as the noble type.

      I agree with you that Hillary isn’t what I would call a person with rock solid integrity. I think she has come to realize that the writing is on the wall and Obama was going to throw her under the bus. She more than likely did it out of necessity more than anything.

    Hillary did do the right thing because she is partially responsible for this, but she is not alone. This goes all the way to the top and Barack Obama still has to explain why he lied to the American people for weeks. I also believe some type of deal must have been worked out because I cannot see Hillary doing this without one.
    Even if we take Obama at his word that he didn’t know about these security concerns he should have; he helped take out the leader of Libya and as September 11th approached he should have known increased security was needed.
