Willie already answered the first portion of your post. Here is the response to the second part.<quoted text>She also failed. Which lessens Condi's failure of 9/11/001 in importance, significance, and consequence,
Ask families and friends of the three thousand dead as a result of Condi's failure, whose 'failure' was more egregious.
And then ask Republicans in Congress why they voted to decrease funding for American Embassy security.
The State Department denied/ignored additional security at the consulate when it was requested due to the increased risks which had emerged in the months leading up to the attack and slimmed down the number of fully trained Americans who can deal with a volatile situation like that. And the act of Congress at the urging of the Republicans had nothing to do with decreased security.
The State Department had $2+ billion in reserve funds for security. Funding had nothing to do with the security situation in Benghazi.
