Kudlow: White House Getting Desperate About Libya?

A stunning development related to the aftermath of the Libya attacks left Larry Kudlow more puzzled than ever.

According to a CNN report, Hillary Clinton said she 'takes responsibility' for what happened in Libya on September 11. Clinton insisted President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden were not involved in security decisions.

And in an interview with NBC News Clinton added, "(I) don't think we want to get into any blame game."

"I'm not sure what that means, " said an absolutely baffled Larry Kudlow.

"What we need to know is who told Ambassador Susan Rice to go onto news shows and tell the public that the attacks were spontaneous."

That, Larry Kudlow says, is at the heart of the matter.

Over the past several days and weeks, Republicans have charged that the administration deliberately misled the public about the attack - that they knew the attack was an act of terrorism but said it was sparked by a controversial film - in an effort to cover-up an al-Qaeda comeback in Libya.

"The Benghazi business is going to be one of the deciding factors in the election, " said Larry Kudlow. "And in my opinion the administration's story doesn't hang together."

The White House has, in the past, denied any intentional cover-up and counters that it has been completely transparent – providing its best intelligence on the attack, and then refining it as more information came to light.

The FBI is still investigating the attack. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton also has named a State Department review panel to look into the security arrangements in Libya.

On September 11, 2012 Ambassador, Christopher Stevens, and the other Americans were killed after Islamist gunmen attacked the U.S. consulate and a safe house refuge in Benghazi.
