In book, Clinton takes responsibility for Benghazi attack

Hillary Rodham Clinton, in her soon-to-be-published memoir, takes responsibility for the 2012 attack on the U.S. diplomatic mission in Ben­ghazi, Libya, while pushing back against accusations that she tried to hinder a Republican-led investigation into the deadly assault.

In Hard Choices, Clinton writes that as secretary of state, "I was the one ultimately responsible for my people's safety, and I never felt that responsibility more deeply than I did that day."

She also delivers a strong rebuttal of attacks by conservatives that she and others in the Obama administration tried to cover up aspects of the attack. "I will not be a part of a political slugfest on the backs of dead Americans," Clinton writes.

Among the four Americans killed was Ambassador Christopher Stevens.
