JAKE TAPPER:  What was your reaction to that?
PAT SMITH:  Well, that's what I want to know - why did it happen? And she is in charge. Why couldn't she do something about it? I blame her.
TAPPER:  You blame Secretary of State Clinton?
SMITH:  Yes.
TAPPER:  Why?
SMITH:  Because that's her department.  She's supposed to be on top of it, and yet she claims that she knows nothing, that it wasn't told to her. Well, who - who is running the place?
