Jason Chaffetz Admits House GOP Cut Funding For Embassy Security:'You Have To Prioritize Things'
For the past two years, House Republicans have continued to deprioritize the security forces protecting State Department personnel around the world. In fiscal year 2011, lawmakers shaved $128 million off of the administration's request for embassy security funding. House Republicans drained off even more funds in fiscal year 2012 -- cutting back on the department's request by $331 million.

REQUEST!!! do you see how ignorant you are. There were no cuts--but because the democrats didn't get what they wanted they call it a cut.

In other words, no 'smoking gun'. Check this out: http://www.nytimes.com/2013/05/09/us/politics...

"Under Bush:
54 attacks on American sites abroad
13 Americans killed

Son… Lamb testimony debunks your Liberal talking Point!!
Lamb was asked whether there was "any budget consideration and lack of budget" which played into the number of people assigned for security at the Benghazi consulate. Lamb's answer: "No.
Comparing FY 2011 actual funding versus the FY 2012 estimate, there appears to be a reduction in Worldwide Security Protection and Embassy Security, Construction and Maintenance. But that reduction does not account for additional funding in FY 2012 from Overseas Contingency Operations funds amounting to $236 million for Worldwide Security Protection (p. 63) and $33 million for Embassy Security, Construction and Maintenance (p. 467). As a result, total funds for Worldwide Security Protection for FY 2012 are estimated to be $94 million higher than in FY 2011, while Embassy Security, Construction and Maintenance is estimated to be $61 million less than FY 2011. Together, there is a net increase.
In terms of people, the budget justification reported that Worldwide Security Protection had slightly fewer positions budgeted (1,777 in FY 2011 versus 1,707 in FY 2012) and Embassy Security, Construction and Maintenance had the same number of positions budgeted (1,014 for both years).
In its budget request for FY 2013, the Administration requested significantly more funding for embassy security—mostly through the Overseas Contingency Operations budget—but retained the same number of positions, apparently on the assumption that security staffing was adequate. Regardless, that budget, even if approved in its entirety, would have entered into effect after the events in Libya.
It is tempting to look for a scapegoat for the tragic events in Libya. However, if one exists, the overall budget for embassy security is not it. Funding for that purpose has risen sharply over the past decade. Moreover, the State Department has considerable latitude in allocating security funds based on current events and intelligence on possible threats. Why that latitude was not applied in Libya deserves further scrutiny.

Numbers don't lie. And after all the Iraq war is over-right? didn't O'bama say that was going to save trillions?

This from an old bum collecting Social Security socialism payments from Obama.
The same old bum is also living off us taxpayers paying for his decrepit health via Medicare, another socialist program.
He's one of the takers, but bitches about hard working poor people who need help.
You're an old fool, Ed, a gutless wonder who answers someone else's post to bitch about me.
You're a coward.
"nutsucker"
Damn right I collect my Social Security benefit. I have paid in for more than 50 years, still do. Damn right I use Medicare, again I have paid in for umpteen years. I also purchase supplemental health insurance. If Social Security and Medicare were unavailable to me my life style would change not a bit.
You are right Social Security and Medicare are socialist programs, programs that one must pay into, your kind of program, a benevolent government looking after you. In your case it is a good thing, you need all the help you can get.
One more time you prove your self to be a liar. I do not piss and moan about benefits going to HARD working folks who require additional help, I piss and moan about the LAZY who do not work and expect to be taken care of.
"nutsucker" I will respond to your bullshit however I please, if another poster points out your idiocy I may agree with him. I hope you continue to post, I enjoy reading posts from others the laugh at you. You know what I seldom see? A poster who agrees with you.

There are these things called contracts.
A government can enter into contracts with companies to service their constituents.
You know, like you right whiners want to privatize government. How do you think that would be done? Putting out services for bids & awarding contracts.
You are telling us that government can't ward contrats because that picking winners & losers.

Why do consumers need the government to select their cable company, and by the way, collect a "franchise fee" that is charged to the consumer each month?

Why not let cable A and cable B install systems and let the consumer choose?

For once Bush got it right.
When Bush bailed out GM, he did a good thing.
Imagine the costs to America, both economically and as a society, if the industry we invented failed in America??
No way Bush was going to leave that as a legacy.
Rmoney was dead wrong on it, and it cost him the election.
Obama agreed with Bush and continued the auto bailout.
It has been a success by any measure.
Ypu hated it from the start, claimed GM would go bankrupt for years, and now you've been proven to be an idiot.
Nothing new there. You've done it on this thread for almost 5 years.
If you didn't post so much, you wouldn't appear so stupid.

Across the board, serial killers are predominantly conservative in their political leanings. Gary Ridgeway, Dennis Rader, and probably the biggest name of all, Ted Bundy, were all active in the Republican Party at some level. Quizzing other killers showed the same thing, that the vast majority vote Republican,” said lead pollster David Quick.“We gain no analysis from this, it garners us no insight into the workings of the minds of conservative politicians or serial killers, but it is an overwhelming majority. Because serial killers come from diverse backgrounds and possess vastly different IQ’s they appear to have nothing in common save their conservative ideals and their desire to butcher people. It’s compelling data to be sure.”
"A new poll of living and deceased serial killers has shown that upwards of 80 per cent lean towards conservative ideals "

How the hell do you poll dead people? The same way they are allowed to vote?
