Secretary of State Hillary Clinton took “responsibility” for the lack of security at U.S. consulate in Benghazi in an interview with CNN tonight. In remarks from Peru, Clinton said that the “President and Vice President certainly wouldn’t be knowledgeable about specific decisions that are made by security professionals.”
But in 2008, then Senator Clinton criticized then Senator Obama during the Democratic primary seizing on comments Obama had made about being a President who would inspire and provide a vision for the country and not make sure “everything’s running on time.”
“Being President means being both CEO and COO of one of the largest and most complex organizations in the world,” Clinton said.
“I think sometimes there’s a relentless pursuit of the little picture over there at the Clinton campaign,” Axelrod continued. “There are bigger issues at stake here.”
Hillary Clinton also said at rally in Missouri in January, “I believe we need a president who believed what Harry Truman believed. That buck stopped in the Oval Office.”
