In the six months leading up to the assault on the United States consulate in Benghazi, the State Department reduced the number of trained Americans guarding U.S. facilities in Libya, according to a leading House Republican investigating the Sept. 11 anniversary attacks. The reduction in U.S. security personnel increased Americas reliance on local Libyan guards for the protection of its diplomats.

Sounds like some State Department people are not too happy about what happened in Benghazi.
At the risk of being labeled a "Conspiracy Theorist", I can't help but believe that there is more than criminal negligence and sheer incompetence involved here. I mean, there were clear threats, even credible warnings and absolutely NOTHING was done?!?!?
sounds like a Ron brown moment, perhaps obambi wanted them out of the way..
Liberals, as usual, are playing around with life they don’t care about as highly as they think of themselves and their insane ideology. A Secretary of State is less important to our nation than is one soldier murdered or maimed by p.c. ideology which puts jihadists on their bases.
Soldiers are fighting for American freedom; not globalist Shira. Move Congress’ and Hillary’s guards to an embassy and let them put some skin in the p.c. game they are playing with American life. Put US Generals with the soldiers on the jihadi bases. See how long the Islamic lying, spinning and murder lasts then.
“Pelosi blames Republicans for terror attack and lax security in Benghazi”
Was the Benghazi attack preplanned and paid for with USA dollars, to create a foundation to justify a ‘wag the dog’ event to launch, right before the election?
Tinfoil hat is now removed.
Oh, wait... they had to leave out the armor because then they would cost half a million each.
