The Daily Caller: — Secretary of State Hillary Clinton took responsibility for the security failures on the attacks on Benghazi on Wednesday, but said that she was not involved in the confusing dissemination of information in the immediate aftermath of the attack.
Clinton testified Wednesday morning before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee on the September 11 attacks on the U.S. Embassy in Benghazi that left Amb. Chris Stevens and three others dead.
“As I have said many times, I take responsibility,” she said, saying that she was committed to implementing changes that would prevent a future attack from happening.
“I feel responsible for the almost 70,000 people who work for the State Department,” she said later.
But that didn’t stop questions surrounding the information initially disseminated about the motives of the attack, which U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice blamed on protests over an anti-Muslim film when she appeared on the Sunday shows the next week.
