During questioning by Senator Rand Paul at today's Benghazi hearing, Hillary Clinton seemed to blame her underlings for the 9/11 terror attack that killed four Americans in Libya:

"The [Accountability Review Board] made very clear that the level of responsibility for the failures that they outlined was set at the assistant secretary level and below," she said, suggesting that the blame lies with the assistant secretary and everyone below that position.
