Debate: Election politics and embassy security.
Today 10/16/12 Secretary of State announced that she is solely responsible for the safety of embassy personnel safety.
The security by international agreement has always been the responsibility of the host country. The small military force assigned is for the internal security requirements of the embassy.
I found it interesting that the announcement comes hours before the last debate.
It is no secret that the president and Clinton have been at odds over the capital of Isreal and the announcements that came from Egypt on the appology issued for the attacks and death of the Ambassador. She was appointed a Secretary of State after the election which was essentailly the end of her political hopes.
Now that she has taken one for the team the question is will Obama keep her in the job after the election IF he wins.
Is this her retirement announcement or just political manuvering?
