Obama's dereliction of duty got this son killed in Libya. Obama's intentional misleading of the international media inflamed radical Muslims never even hearing about some film clip to murder even more. It's understandable, a mother's grief could cloud her views, but complaining about someone saying he met her son is severely misplaced emotion.

At least understand that you are lying when you try to lay the blame at Obama's feet.

"Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) acknowledged on Wednesday that House Republicans had consciously voted to reduce the funds allocated to the State Department for embassy security since winning the majority in 2010.

On Wednesday morning, CNN anchor Soledad O'Brien asked the Utah Republican if he had "voted to cut the funding for embassy security."

"Absolutely," Chaffetz said.""

Obama does not really have any control over embassy and consulate security. In all actuality, it is the responsibility of the host government for external security. First and foremost, the attack and the direct aftermath should be blamed on Libya and failures in internal security you can lay on the republican members of Congress as illustrated above.

The embassy and consulate security force is really there for physical assets (phones, computers and other hardware), document and some limited personnel security.

But you don't care about the truth.

The problem at the consulate had nothing to do with funding. That is a red-herring.

The problem was that Obama's people were informed of the violence and did nothing, except spend wasted time talking to the Libyan government about protecting the Ambassador. Since Obama had illegally armed extremist elements with the weapons they used to attack the consulate, some responsibility lies there also. Then,to make matters worse, Obama repeated falsehoods for weeks concerning the cause of the murders, actually inflaming radicals in twenty countries about a movie trailer they knew nothing about, this resulting in murders and mayhem worldwide. All of these things were done knowledgeably.

GOP cut funding for Security. Security officials Testified before Criminal Issa that more security would not have made a difference in this case.
The Former Navy Seals' Mother told Rmoney to stop using her son as Political Ammo to trash the President.

Really. Obama armed these people? Sorta like reagan armed Bin Laden?

Well, if funding wasn't blocked by republicans then perhaps the ambassadors life would not have been in as much danger.

You seem to ignore that outside the embassy or consulate is the foreign country itself. In the few hours that the event took place, we should have invaded that country?

You are still directing your anger at the wrong person. The external security was the responsibility of the Libyans.

Just as it is here in the US. Would you advocate Russia invading the US if a reverend phelps and his wacko church stormed the Russian Consulate? No, you would expect the police to deal with them.
