    Even the security guys testified even far more Marines couldn’t have done much in the Libya case. How about the Marine Barracks when Ron was in charge and State, and the Marines, did NOT want them all housed in that facility in Beirut?


    BTW, who blew the security in that gaggle, and who blew the whole CIA thing by holding hearings? Oh, right, Issa!

    For two weeks I was told that it was a protest over a Youtube movie that got out of control.

    It’s the cover up, stupid.

    Since it happened concurrently with the Egyptian riots, it was first thought to be part of that protest cycle. I found it interesting that the man who voted against embassy security says “we” have a problem. And they want to raise the defense budget 2 trillion above what the generals want, but now want to “save” money by closing overseas bases? That’s their story and they’re (not) stickin’ to it!

    Congress cut funding for embassy security two years running, below what the White House asked for that’s a least a severally contributing factor.

    All of the GOP congressmen cut funding for overseas embassies and consulates. They won’t take any responsibility, of course, because they’re chickenhawks. If they didn’t perceive this as a way to get low tax rates on the rich, they would be too embarrassed to bring it up.

    It was NOT the Embassy, it was a Consulate!

    You better fact check the debate before repeating the lines that have been called WRONG

    once again you try to excuse Obama and his administrations FAILURE by pointing at things that happened in the past. The only thing that does is prove that your guy hasn’t the intelligence to review history and learn from the mistakes of others. He demonstrated the same FAILURE in the fast and furious debacle.

    If you hate this country so much why don’t you move to Canada with DRC?

    BTW, I’ve been very close to these “situations”. My friends, and son, have been very close much more recently. It wasn’t a formal “embassy” in Libya, because things are still unstable, the attacks were on “facilities”, not “embassies” with “normal” military guards and Stevens knew that. His death is a tragedy for State, but he knew the risks and accepted them, because he cared about the Libyan people, and those who knew him have stood up to decry the actions of the “terrorists”.


    Even so, embassies are NOT military installations, with large numbers of guards, or heavy weapons in place to protect them, which would have been required in this incident, given the heavy weapons of the attackers.


    I’m yes, upset, that the chickenhawk brigade is playing this for “Politics”, and Issa, among others, should be thrown out of Congress for their actions. Issa is NOT stupid, which makes his actions over the last three years even MORE inexcusable.
