(AP) U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton is taking responsibility for security at the U.S. consulate in Libya where an attack by extremists last month killed the U.S. 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.


In television interviews, Clinton said she is responsible for State Department security and "for the more than 60,000 people around the world." She told Fox News that "the decisions about security are made by security professionals." She also made similar comments to CNN about taking responsibility.
