GOP Congress cut the funding for Benghazi security.

Maybe if George Bush hadn't spent hundreds of millions on his vacations?

Bush spent more time on vacation than ANY other on record and probably: history.

I know you have read this 'barefoot':
Papillon
Sacramento, CA
In July 2012 Hillary and Hussein Obama agreed to reduce the military security at the Libyan embassy from 14 to two Marines.
This decision resulted from the 'promise' of local muslims that the embassy would be safe.
Conversely, the ambassador himself urged Obama/Clinton to beef up security, much less reduce it. Clinton/Hillary told him that budget cuts were necessary.
On September 11 2012, these same muslims assembled in three groups of 120 each and attacked the embassy from 3 different directions simultaneously.
The results were devastating. The entire security force of TWO MARINES was killed, along with the ambassador.
After the smoke cleared, Hussein Obama exerted executive privilege, meaning he refused to testify in December, and he got away with it.
Hillary was scheduled to testify in December.
THEN, a strange coincidence occurred -Hillary claimed to be sick in the entire month of December - imagine that !
You add it up now.
yes 'barefoot', I know you read this because you posted something real stupid right under it. since when is hillary/obama the GOP Congress?

Do show us all where the ambassador urged President Obama to increase security in Bengzhi.

Of course, Reagan was urged to increase security in Beirut before an Iranian drove to the barracks and killed 241 Americans.

And you know that President Bush was warned a little over a month before the terrorists struck the World Towers that Al Quada had a plan to hijack jets and crash into landmarks.

I guess we have to work on that crystal ball or if not that a time machine so we can fix such things use tea bag 20/20 hindsight technology.

too funny 'barefoot', the us marines are the security guards at us embassys. I'm pretty sure they don't cost any more than the us marines anywhere else. they are already paid for. besides 300 million is pocket change for obama's vacation slush fund. since we are talking about crazyness, a ban needs to be enacted on the unsupervised use of antipsychotic drugs. these drugs are the common link in all of the recent mass murders committed by crazed bug eyed insane brain damaged zombie like people on antipsychotic drugs. the use of these antipsychotic drugs must be limited to locked down mental health clinics only. these bug eyed zombies must never be set loose on the public.I am your mental health care provider is already having second thoughts about your condition 'barefoot', perhaps you should make a follow up appointment asap.

Benghazi doesn't have an embassy, dummy, it is a consulate, and the US does not use Marines as security guards around the globe- so you aren't a vet, I take it? certainly to a Marine.

Typically: they are private security guards, bid out on contract like most other services.

not clever 'barefoot', falling down drunk for three weeks over the bengazi incident is more like it. besides 'barefoot', I am sure your mental health provider is still having second thoughts about your treatment. please give him a call and make a follow up appointment, we don't want you getting all bug eyed and running loose in some shopping mall or movie theater or something.

Obviously: you don't know what you are talking about.

Topix should require posters to have a high school diploma or a GED, or to at least provide that people like you have an offsetting color to warn readers you don't have a clue.

how funny 'barefoot' same thing, why were the marines there then? why were they cut back to two? why even be there unprotected? besides that's way too many questions to expect a crazy person to answer anyways. lets get back to the problem of banning the unsupervised use of antipsychotic drugs. these drugs that are given out like candy to people and are the common link in insane bug eyed mass killings. have you made that appointment yet 'barefoot'?

The less evolved, the more an organism fixates on sex. Our it sure spends most of it's time fixating on gay sex. Maybe topix should make sure posters are human. Sorry Charlie.

You don't know enough about this to ask the question and you get mad at me for pointing out: you don't know what you are talking about and you are too lazy to look it up first so you can play the "gotcha" card.

None of the people killed were Marines, start there. Two were (ex)**NAVY** SEALS. Ambassador Chris Steven and Sean Smith, an (cough) "information management officer".

Actually gun sales go up when you have a president who is perceived to be anti-gun no matter what color he is.

"Bill Clinton has been the best president the gun industry ever had. During the antigun panics that Mr. Clinton helped incite in 1993-94, and again in 1999, firearms sales skyrocketed, as consumers bought while they still could. For some months in 1993-94, manufacturers were running their plants on three shifts a day and still couldn't keep up with demand."
