That's not what the congressional record says.

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.

The murders of our Ambassador and 3 others lies directly on the shoulders of Obama and Clinton. It has been proven that funding was not cut, but rather the additional funding that the Obama administration wanted was requested was refused. Funding remained and the same level as the previous year. But keep shouting the lie and maybe someone may believe you,... but the real Americans know who was responsible.

Key words in your statement: "lawmakers shaved $128 million off of the administration's request for embassy security funding". This request was in excess of the funding which was already in place. Stating that something was cut gives the impression that funding was reduced, however the reality is that additional funding requests were refused. Please show proof that embassy security funding for fiscal year 2011 was less than fiscal year 2010.

Not to mention at least I provide a source for my information. Yours comes with nothing but your claims that they are accurate. But then liberals were never much for real facts, they prefer to make up their own.

It seems from polls that "real Americans" are not fixated, obsessed or deranged by this issue. It is only those folks who are using it for partisan politics, spew and smear and dancing on the graves of four Americans.

This is the most bizarre insane rhetoric ever. The war in Libya was a Revolution to depose Qaddafi, who was killing Libyan civilians trying to hang on to power.
Shut the hell up if you don't know what you're talking about. Not only should a civilized nation not stand by while madmen like Quddafi kills civilians, but at all cost Qaddafi should have long ago lost his head in the same way Osama Bin Laden did for the murder of 3000 Americans in NYC and Washington DC.
How can you not know what happened in Libya or that Qaddafi was a terrorist sponsoring dictator.
A Little history on Qaddafi: Qaddafi sponsored the Pan Am Flight 103 which (as in the Lockerbie bombing) was a Pan Am transatlantic flight from Frankfurt to Detroit via London and New York City that was destroyed by a terrorist bomb on Wednesday, 21 December 1988, killing all 243 passengers and 16 crew on board
Some of you guys discussing this and other incidents in the middle east are ridiculously digusting to sympathize with the plight of known and long time American hating terrorist against the President of the United States.
You jerks would sell out America for a hand full of peanuts.......
<quoted text>
You don't want to now the truth so why bother!

Here is some more truth you will deny! The US got Qaddafi's WDM program without a shot fired after the US pulled Saddam out of is spider hole. Qaddafi gave up his nuke program immediately and we where still working on Chem/Bio program when Obama started his illegal war! Qaddafi was working with the US on GWOT and the rendition program on captured/capturing terrorist. Yes, Qaddafi was a bad man and needed to go but how are things in Libya now? Is Obama's was working any better? A report of 20,000 to 30,000 MANPADS (should fired anti-aircraft missiles) DISAPPEARED form Libya!! And we don't know who has control of the remaining Chem/Bio program! Again, is Obama's way working any better or is this another truth you will deny to your last breath?

It was bunk intelligence which was based on open source information and limited intelligence, but without sufficient intelligence or eyewitness statements to corroborate that assertion, The IC took too long to correct these erroneous reports, which caused confusion and influenced the public statements of policymakers.

Liberals will say anything to divert attention from the dereliction of duty of Hillary, and Obama in this attack. They knew immediately that it was not a problem with a video, that is was a terrorist arrack, but they lied for months. In the end the truth came out, and made them look like fools. You can't put lipstick on this pig. The American people will hold them accountable at the polls in 2014, and certainly if Hillary dares run for President in 2016.

Foney Baloney.......... Qaddafi was directly involved with funding the bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 in 1988, killing Americans that took off from New York.

Shut the hell up........ Qaddaffi and WMDs isn't the issue, it's seeking justice for the murder of the Americans on that flight. The money he paid was not enough, we wanted his head just as we wanted and received the Head of Osama Bin Laden.

The Libyan revolution was a great excuse to bring in the head of Qaddaffi

As far as I am concerned, we didn't need congress approval to detached Qaddaffi's head. we were 20 years late.

You republicans will find the most senseless theories to sympathize with terrorist against President Obama. You were no different in the civil war.

450 pages of testimony was released a couple weeks ago, Hillary, and the President were clearly derelict in their duties where the Benghazi massacre is concerned. They can try to divert attention, deny, lie, and change the subject, but they cannot change what they did, and did not do Sept. 11, 2012. This will continue to be discussed until someone is held accountable.

Maybe if you taught your children not to kill each other you wouldn't have to worry about guns. As far as Benghazi is concerned there is now testimony that Hillary was told a month before the massacre that AlQaeda was in the area. Yes, that attack was preventable, and those people did not have to die. They died at the hands of incompetents like Hillary, and Berack. We re getting the truth, but getting the truth from Democrats is like pulling teeth.

See you can't handle the truth! Yes WMD;s ARE the issue!! That was one of the reason we went to Iraq and was the reason why Obama wanted to do Syria which HE DROPPED THE BALL ON!!! Obama GAVE terrorist a new safe haven WITH modern weapons in Libya !! I NEVER said Qaddafi was a good guy, I NEVER said Qaddafi should had stayed, but is Obama's way of getting rid of him working? NO!!!! Obama didn't like GW's approach in Iraq so Obama/France tried something different, more hands off, surprising!! IT IS NOT WORKING !!!!! You b*cthed at GW for his Cowboy Diplomacy but say NOTHING about Obama's Thug Life (at a distance) Diplomacy!! You need to look at Obama's close friends. Thugs , terrorist and racist (against whites and Jews) were his type of people!

Catboy, my children and other decent parents should be teaching their children that they do NOT need guns and should not buy them - even those law abidibg guns!

The parents at sandy hook were probably not worrying about guns until their children were slaughtered.
