As Eliana Johnson points out over at NRO, this morning, David Axelrod continued to throw Hillary Clinton and the State Department under the bus, doubling down on the story that Joe Biden’s royal “we” at the veep debate referred only to a party of two — himself and the President — not knowing about the requests for enhanced security In Libya. Apparently, in the Obama presidency, the buck doesn’t stop with the President . . . it stops with, in Axelrod’s words, “the security folks at the State Department.”

What Biden and Axelrod are essentially saying is that Hillary Clinton is thoroughly to blame for this debacle. If she somehow knew about the requests but denied them (and then failed to communicate that fact to the higest levels after the attacks), she’s been guilty of a serious breach of judgment. It’s really a firing offense (not that President Obama can do that for political reasons . . .) If, on the other hand, those requests were being denied and she didn’t even know about them, then she’s manifestly incompetent — also a firing offense.
