(NBC News) "The stench of hypocrisy that hangs over this city today emanates from this room," Ackerman said. "I've listened to my colleagues talk about the President of the United States and others in the administration using {the} terms 'deliberate','lies','unmitigat ed gall','malfeasance,' which is malicious and knowing evil-doing,'disgust','coverups '."

He continued, "If you want to know who is responsible in this town, buy yourself a mirror!"

Ackerman went on to say that Republicans had "the audacity to come here" when the administration requested, for worldwide security, "$440 million more than you guys wanted to provide. And the answer is that you damn didn't provide it! You REDUCED what the administration asked for to protect these people. Ask not who the guilty party is, it's you! It is us. It is this committee, and the things that we insist that we need have to cost money."

He added, "Could you tell me which of my colleagues on this committee was as bodacious in their insistence that we provide more money for American security in the State Department budget. I would appreciate it."

Ackerman then asked them to raise their hands and gave them a count of five to do so. None did.

Do you really think there wasn't funds available to protect Benghazi on 9/11/2012?

OR simply evacuate the staff?

If you think NO then I have a real nice slightly rusted bridge for you in NYC, it'll only cost you a TRILLION BUCKS.
