    Repub Chaffetz did say: "Absolutely [we cut funding]. Look, we have to make priorities and choices in this country. We have … 15,000 contractors in Iraq. We have more than 6,000 contractors, a private army there, for President Obama, in Baghdad. And we’re talking about can we get two dozen or so people into Libya to help protect our forces. When you’re in tough economic times, you have to make difficult choices. You have to prioritize things.”
    .
    So, acording to Mr. Chaffetz, letting our people die needlessly in foreign lands is all part of GOP “prioritizing”.

    Why is it that the federal government cannot manage its budget and prioritize objectives? Business constantly faces pressures to do more with less. The government consistently demonstrates the ability to do less with more. Do we need a couple dozen USDA attaches in places like Libya and Iraq, rather than additional security personnel? Is it more important to sell California almonds in those countries than protect the consular staff? A skilled manager – let alone chief executive – would know how to handle such a situation. A community organizer does not.

    The two contractors killed on the roof of the CIA outpost WERE reinforcements flown in from Tripoli to Benghazi, and due to their actions, all 34 employees in the facility, WERE RESCUED. But please, let’s not go to the known facts, openly discussed over, and over, before committees and the kangaroo court now called “media”, especially on the right. That a published book has the hour to hour details, accurate ones, made public, is of no consequence.

    Mr. Gorrell, thanks for some equal coverage. Both sides have faults, and not all political cartoonists will recognize that! Thanks again. Lee

    I’m surprised one of them didn’t say “but Dude, what difference, now, does it make”?

    Panel #1: Because that was the cover-up the terrorists used to mask the severity of their attack.
    Panel #2: Because you can’t have an embassy like the one in Iraq before you’ve conquered a country, and who wants that?
    Panel #3: None of your business because…
    Panel #4: …he couldn’t have done anything! Leading to:
    Panel #5: THERE WERE NO PERPETRATORS! There was no crime. There was no error.

    Yes, four Americans died, very sorry for that, but the idea that you can protect every American’s live in every country in the world is totally unrealistic. Not even the Romans could do that. You killed a Roman and a legion would come in and burn your village to the ground, but that Roman would still be dead!

    Rep. Dana Rohrabacher: “Was there any budget consideration and lack of budget which led you not to increase the number of people in the security force there?”

    Charlene Lamb, Deputy Assistant Secretary for International Programs in the Bureau of Diplomatic Security at the Department of State: “No, sir.”

    What’s sickening is how Democrats will vote right down the party line no matter WHAT the issue is.

    … unlike Republicans who often cross over the aisle?
