Most everyone remembers that the biggest story of last year’s holiday season was not the hottest new toy or the stampeding crowds seeking post-Christmas sales. The biggest story was a computer breach at Target, one of America’s largest retailers that exposed the credit card information of millions of people to despicable hackers.
Gregg Steinhafel resigned as chairman and chief executive some five months after a massive breach. Though it appears he was forced out by his board of directors, it was nice to see someone man-up (if we can use that term in our new sissified America) for a debacle that he oversaw. Steinhafel is neither a computer expert nor is capable of stopping malicious hackers from attacks that happen every day on big businesses and our governmental agencies. But he was in charge and this brought dishonor to his operation. Detailed reports are thin of what actually happened to anyone whose information was exposed, but no one died. Yet it is on his head and he is out of a job.
The first time anyone stated they were taking responsibility for the situation in Benghazi was on October 18, 2012, in Lima, Peru. That is when Mrs. Clinton, then Secretary of State, told CBS news that she was taking responsibility for the death of the four Americans who were serving our country. Mrs. Clinton also stated “No one wants to get answers more than I do.” But what exactly did she do to get answers? If she did something it certainly would be news to me.
In fact, the first time I can trace that she took responsibility for the situation when on American soil was when she appeared in front of the Senate Committee. That hearing occurred on January 23, 2013 -- after the election and after she was out of office. The only citation previous to that was in a recent column by Sally Kohn of CNN who like the rest of the “progressive” press has castigated Republicans for witch hunting Benghazi. Kohn stated Clinton took responsibility four days after the attack, but no one else seems to have heard that one. The remainder of the Clinton’s statement at the hearing was platitudes and obfuscation. Then she made her famous stand whitewashing any attempt to find out about what happened when she stated “What difference at this point does it make.” So much for finding out what happened.
