Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, facing tough questions from Senate Republicans on the deadly Sept. 11 attack on the U.S. mission in Benghazi, Libya, insisted Wednesday that she has moved aggressively to address security weaknesses laid bare by the assault.

In long-awaited testimony before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, Clinton acknowledged her personal responsibility as head of the State Department, and stressed that she has begun implementing all 29 corrective steps recommended by an in-house investigative board.

“I take responsibility,” said Clinton, whose appearance before the committtee was delayed for a month by a stomach flu, a concussion and a brief hospitalization. “Nobody is more committed to getting this right.”

    Mrs. Clinton, where are the people that our Navy SEALS rescued from our Consulate in Benghazi?

    Mrs. Clinton, why has the State Department ignored the congressional subpoenas to have those people appear in these hearings?

    Mrs. Clinton, where was President Obama during those eleven hours of the assault on our consulate? What was HE DOING or NOT DOING during those eleven hours?

    Mrs. Clinton, were you in the WH situation room watching the live feed of the killing of our hero Navy SEALs? And what orders did DoD get regarding sending assistance to our people there?

    dear Hillary,
    wherew ere you in that time and what were you doing. why didnt you hear the ries for help,; how did you turn away knowing they stood no chance of surviving? And s the presdents adviosor, what suggestions did you give him? Where was he when this was gong on?,did he even show up or when told of this problem, did he roll over in bed to dream of all the time he shot skeet at amp David?
    With all the options available to us, why did we do nothing, especially when those in the know sasid they needed help. You want to know what the problem IS? Wellmaybe it is the arrogance of those back in DC who think they know better than those in the field handling the raw facts.
    No you were right about one thing, we need to find out what went wrong and fix it! Well step one is complete, your on the way out! lets hope w as a nation havn't jumped from the fireplace and into the fire, by putting Kerryin your seat!

    She's a piss poor politician, probably a lousy wife, wasn't too good at being a Republican that's for sure, but she sure loves to travel.

    What I want to know is why haven't any of the rescued people at Benghazi stepped up to the plate and publicly thanked their fallen rescuers. Why haven't those people been interviewed by the press? Why weren't they questioned about what went down during the 9/11 time frame by a Congressional committee of some sort??

    Underside of the moving bus, meet Hillary Clinton; Hillary, this is the underside of the moving bus.
    She may have been responsible for the leadup, not reading her messages and ignoring the requests for increased security, but it was B. Hussein O., the C-in-C, who told the rescue missions to stand down, multiple times. the deaths are on his head. The blood is on his hands.

    She wouldn't be able to answer the questions I have about Benghazi - all of my questions are directed at repubs and their supporters:
    - Have you no shame for trying to gain political points out of an anti-American attack?
    - Why do you continue to spread lies about Benghazi?
    - As Clinton herself asked, what difference does it make what the attacker's motivation was? Why are repubs so fixated on the attacker's motivation?

    Those are just some of the questions I'd like to ask...

    Hillary is a fraud and an embarrassment to all tax paying Americans who have watched she and her greedy husband do anything for money. She made it pretty clear when being pressed to testify that the dead Ambassador who was dragged shirtless through the streets by one of his murders, and the Seals who defended to the death were no longer important. Wonder how that made families of the brave dedicated men feel. And remember, Obama went flying off to Hollywood buddies or Dave Letterman with complete disregard of his presidential duties to America and those serving America. Read Gary Alrich, FBI Agent assigned to the Clinton White House and you will be gagging as you read the pages about who controlled the White House when Clinton was elected president. Not only the Clintons were freaky but most of their staff were crude, ignorant and held everyone in contempt stating they did not have to obey the rules and precedent set for White House Staff. His book Unlimited Access is short, succinct and written clearly as an investigative reporter would write. We will be lucky if Obama does not take America down into his abyss of Socialism and Marxism leanings. We can be assured of most likely being attacked and bombed by all the Nations hating America and seeing us as weak, overweight and illiterate. Easy pickings! Hillary's ego far surpasses her talents.

    She takes "responsibility" while asking what's the difference? Then we all watched her twist and bend in the wind. Americans died and she wants to know what's the difference. If there is a just world, those words will follow her forever! She has not answered the who and why of the deaths of those Americans and it makes a tremendous difference to those of us who are paying attention.

    Well theres no room for argument with those that dont care about the dangerous truth at hand, but in regards to the bravery and the two patriot navy seals that ignored the orders of there commanding officer to stand down, given to them by the president. And the sacrificed lives of our ambassador and others, we should be grieved as Americans, in stead we sweep it under the carpet! The president has been trying to cover up the 300 tuns of military weaponry uncovered at a cheack point on its way to the Muslim brotherhood, to aid in the attack on Israel. Including stand alone surface to air missile units. This was not passed through congresses, and would be considered an act of treason, punishable by death! But before the ambassadors appointed hearings with our congressional committee, he was murdered while all troops were told to stand down! One of our seals as part of security was on top the roof with a laser guidance marker aimed at attackers armed with R.P.Gs. All the president had to do was authorize the drone strike, wile they circled over head video tapping the whole thing live armed with missiles capable of clearing the area, as the president watched. He gave no clearance. He watched our men die, to cover up his relations to Hamas and the Muslim brother hood! But this is ...

All those involved with this have been asked to step down including, CIA director, the head of defense, some of our high ranking officers have steped down, and Hilary Clinton.

    She was doing a redirection of attention. Instead of going after the ones who did it. What about the ones who let them die? What about the ones who ignored their cries for help? How can anyone look at their parents eyes and lie about their childrens deaths.

    I'm glad she didn't hold anything back when making her voice heard. The GOP backed investigation could give two sh*ts about the lives lost. It was solely a disgusting political attack on the Obama administration.

    I'm surprised so few people have picked up Rand Paul's moronic statement about equating this tragedy to 9/11 by saying it has been the worst one since. Apparently it trumps countless children being slaughtered in an elementary school on U.S. soil.
