U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has accepted blame for the security failure that led to last month’s attack on the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi and the deaths of four Americans, including the U.S. ambassador to Libya. Clinton said in an interview with CNN that security for American diplomats overseas is her responsibility. She said President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden had not been involved in security decisions related to the Benghazi consulate. Clinton’s comments, on October 14, came one day before Obama was expected to be questioned about the incident in a second debate scheduled between Obama and Republican Party presidential candidate Mitt Romney. Romney has said the Benghazi attack revealed weaknesses in Obama’s foreign policy, and has accused the Obama administration officials of misrepresenting information about the attack.
