That is YOUR opinion of the oped, based on YOUR opinion of the testimony and news reports that YOU give credence to.

Did Clinton’s State Department fail to provide adequate security for the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi? In retrospect, obviously so. But the three diplomats who testified at the hearing gave no evidence that this failure sprang from anything other than the need to use limited resources as efficiently as possible.
House Republicans who voted to cut funding for State Department security should understand that their philosophy — small government is always better — has consequences. Bureaucrats have to make judgment calls. Sometimes they will be wrong.

CIA Takes Heat for Role in Libya
November 1, 2012, 9:05 p.m. ET
http://online.wsj.com/article/SB1000142405297...
...The U.S. effort in Benghazi was at its heart a CIA operation, according to officials briefed on the intelligence. Of the more than 30 American officials evacuated from Benghazi following the deadly assault, only seven worked for the State Department. Nearly all the rest worked for the CIA, under diplomatic cover, which was a principal purpose of the consulate, these officials said.
...Congressional investigators say it appears that the CIA and State Department weren't on the same page about their respective roles on security, underlining the rift between agencies over taking responsibility and raising questions about whether the security arrangement in Benghazi was flawed.
==========
Accountability Review Board (ARB) for Benghazi
http://www.state.gov/documents/organization/2...
FINDINGS
2. Systemic failures and leadership and management deficiencies at senior levels within two bureaus of the State Department (the “Department”) resulted in a Special Mission security posture that was inadequate for Benghazi and grossly inadequate to deal with the attack that took place.
Security in Benghazi was not recognized and implemented as a “shared responsibility” by the bureaus in Washington charged with supporting the post, resulting in stove-piped discussions and decisions on policy and security.
...Overall, the number of Bureau of Diplomatic Security (DS) security staff in Benghazi on the day of the attack and in the months and weeks leading up to it was inadequate, despite repeated requests from Special Mission Benghazi and Embassy Tripoli for additional staffing.
...Special Mission Benghazi’s uncertain future after 2012 and its “non-status” as a temporary, residential facility made allocation of resources for security and personnel more difficult, and left responsibility to meet security standards to the working-level in the field, with very limited resources.
...At the same time, the SMC’s dependence on the armed but poorly skilled Libyan February 17 Martyrs’ Brigade (February 17) militia members and unarmed, locally contracted Blue Mountain Libya (BML) guards for security support was misplaced.
...there were some troubling indicators of its reliability in the months and weeks preceding the September attacks. At the time of Ambassador Stevens’ visit, February 17 militia members had stopped accompanying Special Mission vehicle movements in protest over salary and working hours.

Washington post-biased paper, biased Eugene

WSJ link does not provide source you quoted.

Accountability Review Board (ARB) for Benghazi is being investigated by the Inspector General for failure to qualify as a legitimate report.

Again a Useless post.

Nope, it is an acknowledgement of the facts of Ms Lamb's testimony and acknowledgement of her position as Dept Asst Secretary of Int'l Programs in the Bureau of Diplomatic Security - which would cerrtainly imply she knows what she is talking about. No opinion needed - just a willingness to read and comprehend the written word.
Rep. Dana Rohrabacher:“Was there any budget consideration and lack of budget which led you not to increase the number of people in the security force there?”
Charlene Lamb: No, sir.


but-but-but, Oh my relies on a biased reporter named Eugene.

While all of the above points documenting failures at high levels to address security shortfalls must be addressed, those are really not my biggest concern, though it is POSSIBLE they serve to answer my question - WHY was it so important for the Obama administration to put forth the fiction about the video, when they KNEW it was fiction. Was the Obama WH trying to avoid scrutiny of the inadequate security? Is that the reason for what can without doubt now be called a cover up? I don't know. Or is there some other reason? But that is the crux of the issue - WHY the need to push the video narrative?
And ABC and CBS are finally waking up to the need to have questions answered. It's about da-n time.
You're just sitting on the edge of your seat, waiting for the moment they FINALLY have something they can pin on Obama. The suspense is killing you.

LOL - it's not going to happen. You're going to be so disappointed.

You think theres blood in the water - and you're another angry shark waiting for your turn to bite. You're going to go away hungry.

I'm sure the Republicans will get somebodys head on a stick. At this point they CAN'T not produce a head because it will embarrass them too much. They might take a nibble at Hillary.

Hillary doesn't care. She'll still PUMMEL whatever dim-witted anti-science, anti-middle-class, bible-thumping evolution denier, corporate puppet the Republicans (or the 2016 Koch Convene, more accurately) push forth.

And Karl Roves head will explode. AGAIN.

I'm looking forward to it.

Yup. General Motors, Chrysler and GE are all good examples. Smart, forward looking business people realize that they can do nothing without the enthusiastic contributions of good employees and are willing to pay those people well. Unfortunately organized labor protects the deadbeat employee at the expense of the key employees.

I don't believe he'll win. I have no issues with his voting record, others are talking and voting like Broun (Gingrey especially). Broun doesn't beat around the bush. A couple of emotionally crazed statements doesn't make him unworthy. Once again, what facts do you have against him, not talking points or opinions.
I don't know anything about Broun. And I while disagree with him on his Big Bang position (I am a Christian who has no problem at all with the Big Bang - and it was actually every bit as much of a kick in the shorts for atheists as it was for Young Earthers) I would not discount him just because of those positions the article talks about. All I have to do is look at the likes of:

Sheila Jackson Lee - too many to choose from

Nancy "we have to pass the bill to find out what's in it" Pelosi

Joe "The number one job facing the middle class, and it happens to be, as Barack says, a three-letter word: jobs. J-O-B-S." Biden

Maxine Waters: "Guess what this liberal would be all about? This liberal will be about socializing...uh, um...Would be about, basically, taking over, and the government running all of your companies."

Compared to them, he's a brain trust.

I've been happily married for going on 33 years and my wife is not a bigot. Why would I want to marry a bigot now? I've seen some of your posts. You seem to be lacking most of your brain. My guess is lobotomy, or severe trauma.
