I would like to suggest that Lamb is simply a scrooge, but she is a model of bureaucratic incompetence.

I sure wish that Sandy Adams had a full hour to interrogate this panel.

Will the revelations make any difference for Obama? In the reality of a government owned press?

Are the presstitutes Americans?

Lamb is a “process” person ..... that’s all I’ve heard from her the entire hearing. Process, not priorities .... process, procedure, bureaucracy. It’s a wonder more lives haven’t been lost before now.

http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2012/10/10/State-Department-Official-Who-Wanted-Security-at-Benghazi-Artificially-Low-to-Testify-Today

Lamb reports to Assistant Secretary for Diplomatic Security Eric Boswell, who reports to Under Secretary of State for Management Patrick F. Kennedy, who in turn reports directly to Secretary of State Clinton. A primary responsibility of Boswell and Lamb in Libya was enforcing the “No Marines, No Bullets” State Department Rules of Engagement for Libya document signed by Secretary Clinton some time within the past year and a half after the fall of Khadafi’s dictatorship in Libya.

On Tuesday Breitbart News reported that Under Secretary Kennedy briefed Capitol Hill staffers on September 12, 2012 that the Benghazi attacks of the previous day had been carefully planned.

They dems are saying Libya was not properly funded
BUT there uis a reason for that. Obama waged war WITHOUT the consent of Congress, which is unconstitutional.

There is a reason why there is no budget for using expensive assets:

Its because Obama never did get the proper Constitutionally required permission from Congress to wage war on Libya, and therefore did not have the proper funds for security in the aftermath ( One wonders where Obama’s executive orders were when needed.).

Welcome to the United States of Zimbabwe.

THIS WAR IN LIBYA IS ONE THAT SHOULD NOT HAVE HAPPENED. KUCINICH, a democrat, was right in his statement.

The only goal reached by Obama was that he has armed Al Qaeda with 10 to 20 thousand shoulder launched missiles and other undisclosed ordnance. Fait Accomplis for Obama’s fascist initiatives.The entirety of North Africa is destabilized, and the gateway to Central Africa is NOW open to jihadis from Sudan and Libya, as the Islamic conquest now is about to be waged right down into Africa.

Think about it, 10,000 shoulder launched missiles capable of bringing down air liners.There soon will not be an airport in Africa that is safe.

I doubt it. I would begin to feel somewhat better if Lamb, Kennedy, Clinton and Rice were made to go to the burnt out consulate for duty, with the same security Ambassador Stevens and the others had.

Bottom Line: Hillary is not going to take the fall for this. Not unless she manages to bring the WH with her. My guess is the best is yet to come. It would not surprise me if she was the whistleblower. (only 1/2 kidding on that one)

HAH! I like this ask Kennedy and then go to Norstrom routine.

I’m still at Trey Gowdy!!!!!

Trey Gowdy: “ I just had a conversation with Chaffez out back, and I hope he doesn’t mind me saying this. He still gets emotional talking about what he saw in Libya. There were 4 brave Americans who died under circumstances we can scarcely fathom-—the terror, the fear, the ANARCHY, of being killed in that fashion.

They did what their country asked them to do. They stood post under dangerous circumstances, even after requests for security were denied. They stood their post.

The least we can do is stand our meager post that we have been assigned and demand that this administration speak the truth to the people it is supposed to serve.

This was never about a video; it was never spontaneous. This is terror, and I want to know why we were lied to.”
