Did Hillary Clinton Really Give Instructions To Increase Security In Benghazi?

That is what is being claimed.

At The Daily Caller, Edward Klein writes about Hillary’s non mea culpa:
At the second presidential debate this week, Barack Obama finally appeared to man-up and acknowledge that, as president and commander in chief, he was responsible for the deaths of four Americans during the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi.

After all, said the president, the secretary of state “works for me,” and as the top person in the administration’s chain of command, the buck stopped at him.

It was, at best, a late and half-hearted admission of culpability.
But was Clinton's own mea culpa any less half-hearted?

Just watch Hillary's "admission of responsibility":

Responsibility implies consequences -- and Hillary does not appear to expect any, at least not any negative consequences.

Is she expecting positive consequences?

Klein seems to think so:
After the Clinton legal team had a chance to review the State Department cable traffic between Benghazi and Washington, the experts came to the conclusion that the cables proved that Hillary had in fact given specific instructions to beef up security in Libya, and that if those orders had been carried out — which they weren’t — they could conceivably have avoided the tragedy.

The question is, why should it take a legal team of experts to come to the conclusion that Hillary Clinton performed her job properly and responsibly by giving specific instructions.

If the instructions are that specific, shouldn't it be clear that Hillary did what Klein's sources say she thinks she did?

In any case, Clinton's expectation is that when the smoke clears, the cables will prove that she is not responsible for the tragedy of the terror attack in Benghazi -- leaving Obama holding the back and leaving her free to run for President in 2016.

Maybe that will work.

Then again, it was Clinton's expectation to be running for re-election now instead of Obama.
