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.
Yesterday, the CIA insisted that "No one at any level in the CIA told anybody not to help those in need; claims to the contrary are simply inaccurate." The denial is in reference to the report that the CIA held back forces from helping the Americans who were under attack in Benghazi, Libya on 9/11.
Elliott Abrams is rightly and eloquently outraged about this morning's New York Times article, which features Obama administration officials discussing sensitive and classified national security matters, for the sake of making the president look tough. The leakers—none of whom "would allow their names to be used because the effort remains highly classified, and parts of it continue to this day"—did no favor to our national security, or to efforts to stop Iran's nuclear program.
