VP Threw Sec. Of State Hillary Clinton Under The Bus – And She’s GOING ALONG WITH IT?????

Posted on October 16, 2012


Peru (The Gaslamp Post) – Not only did Vice-President Joe Biden throw Sec. of State Hillary Clinton under the bus last week during his debate against vice-presidential candidate Paul Ryan, when faced with having to answer for this administration’s fumbling of our ambassador’s murder in Libya, last month, but now it appears that Secretary Clinton is taking the fall.

In a baffling move to anyone familiar with how then First Lady Clinton operated during her husband Bill’s two-term administration, Secretary Clinton appears to have made the decision to be a good soldier, and fall on her own sword.

With as many people close to the Clinton’s during Bill’s presidency who turned up dead; Vincent Foster (attorney and law partner of Hillary Clinton), Eric Fox (former Marine who served President Clinton aboard Air Force One), Dr. Donald Rogers (who was ready to unload some “dirt” on the Clinton’s), Danny Cosolaro (author who was investigating both Bill and Hillary), etc. etc. – it’s curious to know exactly why Sec. Clinton has agreed to take the fall.

If history has taught us anything, it’s that Clinton’s fall on no swords, rather; they stab others in the back!

In a news conference held during a trip to Peru, the secretary of state told CNN that she was responsible for the security failures of the U.S. mission in Libya, on September 11, 2012.

“I’m in charge of the State Department’s 60,000-plus people all over the world, 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.

I take this very personally,” Clinton said. “So we’re going to get to the bottom of it, and then we’re going to do everything we can to work to prevent it from happening again, and then we’re going to work to bring whoever did this to us to justice.”

Her intention was to put out the flames of a political firestorm which many believe are evidence of President Obama’s failed foreign policies.

“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 know that we’re very close to an election,” Clinton said. “I want to just take a step back here and say from my own experience, we are at our best as Americans when we pull together. I’ve done that with Democratic presidents and Republican presidents.”

Although seemingly sincere, her statement is drawing attention from the Senate, specifically, the Armed Services Committee.

Clinton’s statement of responsibility was “a laudable gesture, especially when the White House is trying to avoid any responsibility whatsoever,” the Arizona senator said in a joint broadside with Sens. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina and Kelly Ayotte of New Hampshire. However, they added, “The security of Americans serving our nation everywhere in the world is ultimately the job of the commander-in-chief. The buck stops there.”
