Hillary Clinton says consulate security her responsibility

LIMA, Peru — US Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton is taking responsibility for security at the US consulate in Libya where an assault by extremists on the anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks killed the US ambassador and three other Americans.

Pushing back against Republican criticism of the Obama administration for its handling of the situation, Clinton said Monday in Lima, Peru, that security at all of America’s diplomatic missions abroad is her job, not that of the White House. She made the comments in several television interviews.
