They could have used that $3 million they gave to Nancy Pelosi's husband as a grant to teach fishermen how to fish for his fish canning plant, for security in Libya

The response to every failure of our government cannot be that there wasn't enough money thrown at the problem.


thats reasonable but its also reasonable to not attack the Administraton when Republican cuts were just as culpable in this incident

Way to completely ignore the posts that point out that your idiotic claim is wrong.

More Democrats voted to cut the budget than Republicans.

Total BS! There has already been direct testimony given under oath indicating money was not the problem for the security of the Consulate. Nice talking point though.

At point 3:35:35 on c-span video here >> LINK /

Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-Calif.): "Mrs Lamb, you made this decision personally [to reject the request for more security], was there any budget consideration, or lack of budget, that allowed you not to increase the people in the security force there"

Response: "No Sir."

Congress passed funding. Obama/State decided how to spend it. THEY skimped on security in a HOT area. Maybe they should have been more interested in protecting their diplomats instead of their "green" projects.

All Obama and his people will do is deny knowing for a few more weeks,that's all they need. There is a video ,with audio from that event, and you can hear the people chanting together,"Obama ,Obama were all Osama's. you've heard it here 1st and it will surface but after the election. The event had nothing to do with video and had everything to do with Obama continually bragging about how he killed Osama.

same old shite from Graham. side kick to McCain,
interchangeable anti-Obama talk from both McCain and Graham.
both are without a clue as to how to make peace in the world.
they are both about war, and spending on war material.


None of this dispells the Obama administration cover up about the attack and lack of response to Steven's requests and concerns before the attack.

Nice argument (not). Do you have any evidence whatsoever that challenges Graham's statements of fact? I'll wait. . .

Do you acknowledge that more Democrats than Republicans voted to approve those cuts? And do you acknowledge that sworn testimony from last week indicates that the budget did not have an effect on the lack of security at the compound?

Your claim is completely irrelevant to the fact that the Obama administration lied for two weeks to the American people (including the four victims' families) about the true nature of events in Benghazi.

Every single SERIOUS Democrat I know can't believe they are being this stupid and making these mistakes. Should've just said we are investigating, well provide info as its available and we will get justice. That's it.

Just like watergate, the damn lies just make it worse.

and it didn't help when NBC tried to badger the Libyan president.

I find it outrageous Oduma's excuse is the Administration based their original belief that the attack was the result of a protest over the airing of the video on faulty intelligence.

The Left called Bush a liar after he started the Iraq war based on faulty intelligence that Saddam had WMDs.

Does that mean now the Left will do the same thing and call Oduma a liar?

I don't know if it's been said, but I can't bypass a Lindsay Graham thread without saying:

frick him.

I remember all that "good work" he did during the bank bail-outs. Condescending pig.

Do you dispute anything he said today on Face the Nation? Or fault him for saying it? The answer to both of those questions, to me, is no. I applaud him for saying what everyone else seems to be too afraid or inarticulate to say.

or could it be being forced to make 300 million in security spending for embassies because Republicans wanted to make cuts and here is one of the spots their blind axe fell and now they want to blame Obama for lax security


1. Cuts to what? There is no BUDGET! Thank Obama and the Dems for that.
2. Since there is no budget, there is simply an appropriations committee handing out needed spending. If the Obama admin needed the money all they had to do was request it. Guess what? No request was made.
3. With all that said: Charlene Lamb from the state department testified under oath last week that security was not refused because of budgetary reasons.

You lose.

Don't forget the Ambassador to France has a full detachment of Marines to protect him from the French, but there was no need to have a Marine detachment in Libya to protect Ambassador Stevens.
