    Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) said today that he voted to cut funding for U.S. embassy security amid political attacks from Republicans that the Obama administration did not do enough to secure the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya that was attacked last month.
    Republicans and their allies have been trying to politicize the attack — which killed four Americans, including the U.S. Ambassador to Libya — suggesting, without evidence, the Obama administration may have ignored intelligence that the attack was imminent, didn’t properly secure the Benghazi compound and is now trying to cover it up.
    But hidden beneath the GOP campaign is the fact that House Republicans voted to cut nearly $300 million from the U.S. embassy security budget. When asked if he voted to cut the funds this morning on CNN, Chaffetz said, “Absolutely“

    Yes, the cordon of loyal Americans is important, but even more valuable is that they are protected by standing at the center of truth!

    Don’t forget the media’s protecting them, too.

    And the truth and the two shall not meet. You need a ring of Lame stream media around the Donkeys and the truth was never that close. Hillery should be saying “YouTube” and Obama “Spontaneous”

    Add to that that Issa refuses to hear form any people of authority who made the decisions on the ground…
    Can you say “witch hunt”?

    Apparently nothing is going on in Republican land other than this wild goose chase. BTW the Republicans are pushing H.R.1406
    , which is a bill that would force an unnecessary choice between overtime pay that workers rely on and time off that they may never be able to take advantage of. They call it the “Working Families Flexibility Act”, which is code for more work, less pay.

    Utterly asinine, GOP’s doing all it can to destroy the economy to try and regain political power. It lies, gets caught lying, and continues to go on doing so. Be nice if they were Pro-American for a change.

    1. previous cuts in budgets was not the reason for the neglected “security” in Benghazi, testified to by officials last fall under oath.
    -
    2. the top official responsible for the neglect and refusal to strengthen security was Sec. of State Hillary Clinton. She was carrying out President Barack Obama’s policies.
    -
    3. Dana has the situation correctly illustrated. The strategy of the House Democrats (and the lap dog Obama MSM) was to deny, delay, derail, and ridicule by false accusations (GOP political “smear”) etc. along with attacking the sworn career officials as not credible. TRUTH makes Democrats break into rashes and throw public tantrums.

    All you who think that the mainstream media is irrevocably slanted toward the left, please answer these questions:

    What do we know about Exxon-Mobil’s free oil giveaway to Arkansas (the spill of tar sands oil)? How is it being cleaned up? Is it still leaking? What will be the outcome of a similar spill that will definitely happen from the Keystone pipeline?

    What do we know about the release of radiation into the sea water that resulted from having to use sea water to cool the nuclear rods in the Fukidomo reactor accident damaged after the earthquake and tsunami? Did it just vanish, like the oil in Arkansas? Or are there longterm health consequences as a result of contamination with materials that have half-lives of thousands of years?

    I submit that the news media is not intentionally anything; just incompetent.

    @ossiningaling

    Can you provide the information that they are not willing? I understand Thomas Pickering originally declined prior to the hearings but wanted to testify at the last minute, but that this did not meet the “three-day rule” that requires witnesses be locked in three days in advance to give Committee members adequate time to prepare. What I heard from the hearings, they are having to ask who gave the orders to stand down and not provide additional security. That is why we are still having hearings. No one including the Obama Administration seem to know who gave what orders.

    @Griff

    Name something that the republicans are doing to destroy the economy.Harry Reid hasn’t let in a single jobs bill to the floor of the senate.Obama threatened to veto any republican bill that got passed.The Obama administration continues to stop counting about half the unemployed so they can say the unemployment numbers are going down.
    “We have to pass it to find out what’s in it”.
    The more we find out the worse it gets.
