WOW Part II: Prez says ...

buck stops with him.

Did he miss the memo from Hillary yesterday?

Hillary: I Take Responsibility, But...

 In a CBS interview that aired on CBS This Morning Tuesday, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said she did not brief American United Nations ambassador Susan Rice prior to her disastrous September 16 television appearances. 

On that day Ambassador Rice told five network Sunday political programs that the September 11, 2012 attack on the American mission in Benghazi was an unplanned spontaneous response to a privately produced video that criticized the prophet Mohammed. These claims have since been debunked by progressive and conservative media alike.

Clinton also said she did not know who briefed Rice prior to those appearances. "You would have to ask her," she said.

transcript of the exchange reads:
QUESTION: Who briefed Ambassador Rice that day? Did you sign off on that briefing and those speaking points?

SECRETARY CLINTON: You would have to ask her.

QUESTION: You didn’t speak to her before that appearance?

SECRETARY CLINTON: No, but that – everybody had the same information. I mean, I’m – I have to say I know there’s been a lot of attention paid to who said what when, but I think what happened is more important. We were attacked, and four brave Americans were killed. Others were injured. Dozens had to fight for their life and had to get evacuated. Everybody in the Administration had – has tried to say what we knew at the time with the caveat that we would learn more, and that’s what’s happened. So I think that – I’ve seen it before not just in respect to this. I think it’s part of what the fog of war causes.
