    From the article:

    The congressionally chartered Commission on Wartime Contracting issued a strong warning in 2009, saying the State Department’s reliance on lowest-priced contractors was jeopardizing security.

    “Lowest-priced security not good enough for war-zone embassies,” the commission wrote in a stinging report that urged other factors such as capability be considered in awarding security contracts.

    The State Department inspector general highlighted the gaps in some private security firms’ capabilities with investigations of the war-time security postures in Iraq and Afghanistan.

    A March 2010 report by the IG cited several potential weaknesses with the private firm guarding the Baghdad embassy, while acknowledging the firm had thus far protected the facility from any major attacks.

    Let's see, we arm violent Mexican drug dealers but we don't defend our Embassies.

    Only theobama administration is ignorant enough to have an embassy in Libya of all places and not have adequate security.

    Obama's the hot dog....


    He's the one who gave lofty speeches in places like Egypt......how come the Egyptian leader hasn't expressed any sympathies......?
