Well Carol who used their majority in the House to cut funding for diplomatic security? The GOP cut the administration's request for diplomatic security funding by $128 million in fiscal 2011 and $331 million in fiscal 2012.

The lapse in judgment at the highest level and the mixed messages afterwards is a big deal because we still don't have answers.
It wouldn't look good for this president's campaign if he admitted his administration failed to prevent an attack and protect an ambassador on 9/11.
There's our answer.

“Having an extra foot of wall, or an extra half-dozen guards or agents would not have enabled us to respond to that kind of assault,”
You're demonstrating your rank hypocrisy by criticizing this president when in past posts you've excused his predecessor who despite warnings issued months earlier allowed an attack on this country that killed over 3000 in New York, the Pentagon and Pennsylvania.
You're an idiot Carol.
