On January 7, 2010, while speaking on the issue of national security and the failed Christmas Day terrorist attack, President Obama stated, "For ultimately, the buck stops with me."
I am less interested in passing out blame than I am learning from and correcting these mistakes to make us safer. For ultimately, the buck stops with me. As president I have a solemn responsibility to protect our nation and our people, and when the system fails it is my responsibility.
Yesterday, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton took blame for the Benghazi attack.
