2011, GOP cuts Embassy security by half billion, H. Clinton sez threatens security.

“This is a disturbing example of the Republicans’ meat-ax approach to cutting every aspect of the government, no matter how essential,” said Senate Democratic Policy Committee Chairman Charles Schumer (N.Y.) in a statement to The Hill.

Last year, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton warned that Republicans’ proposed cuts to her department would be “detrimental to America’s national security” — a charge Republicans rejected.

Ryan, Issa and other House Republicans voted for an amendment in 2009 to cut $1.2 billion from State operations, including funds for 300 more diplomatic security positions. Under Ryan’s budget, non-defense discretionary spending, which includes State Department funding, would be slashed nearly 20 percent in 2014, which would translate to more than $400 million in additional cuts to embassy security.

Everything given to this administration has been tainted by Republican first. Was I right? Republicans have caused more damage to the country than al Qaeda? Imagine the damage they could do if they officially worked together? Instead of Republicans wasting so much time saying government can't do anything right and then making sure that happens. Seems like every time Republicans blame something on Democrats, we only have to wait a day to find out it started with Republicans.

The testimony of Andrew Woods was even more disastrous for democrats. Actually, more democrats voted for reduced state department funding than republicans. The problem goes deeper than merely the funding. It really is the allocation of the funding they got. The funding went to support the bureaucracy of the state department first.

However, if the royal obama regime and the corrupt state department had told the truth about the attacks on the Benghazi compound, they might have gotten additional funding. Instead they hid the increasing activity because it didn't fit with the narrative that Al Quaeda was knocked on its heels.

How does the GOP make anything happen considering they have no power? Funny, they get blamed for everything.

They were just asked if budget had factored into the lack of security in Libya and were told that it was not.

Tell me exactly when the senate passed that bill and when did your dear leader Maobama sign it?

You can't because it didn't happen, the feds have been operating on continuing resolutions for 3 freaking years now.

Onece again, facts don't back up your narrative. Your a lousy propagandast, you have to have enough truth to make it believeable, total failure.

Doesn't take much to get you guys whipped into a "tizzy".

There's a lot Republicans can do. Remember when they threatened the unemployment benefits for millions of Americans to get the Bush tax cuts extended?
