Debunking the "Republicans Cut Embassy Security Funding in Libya" Myth Democrats, scrambling to excuse the inexcusable, are pointing the finger at Republicans. See what MSNBC is claiming here. They claim that Republicans cut the funding to embassy security in Benghazi, and thereby, are responsible for the deaths of the Ambassador and his security crew. This claim holds no water for four reasons. Reason 1: At point 3:35:35 on c-span video here >> http://www.c-span.org/Events/Congre...n-US-Consulate-Attack-in-Libya/10737434835-1/ 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." Reason 2: Not that it matters, as we have already seen that funding was not an issue, but the bill in question was bipartisan with more Democrats voting for the cuts than Republicans. http://dailycaller.com/2012/10/10/d...-libya-despite-majority-dem-support-for-vote/ Reason 3: The State Department got all of their requested funding for FY 2012 http://blog.heritage.org/2012/10/11...dget-for-embassy-security-is-not-responsible/ Reason 4: Obama invaded Libya without funding or permission from Congress. So how could funding for security in Libya be a problem? .
