STATE DEPARTMENT OFFICIAL WHO WANTED SECURITY AT BENGHAZI 'ARTIFICIALLY LOW' TO TESTIFY TODAY
Breitbart ^ | 10 Oct 2012 | MICHAEL PATRICK LEAHY

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.

Unfortunately they are protected by Federal Law from prosecution for circumstances that are a result of their decisions while executing their offices, where there was no criminal intent.............

Is it true that American troops in Afghanistan/Pakistan have been ordered NOT to fire on the enemy spotted at night so they won’t “disturb” the sleeping civilians????????

This is a direct result of their liberal mindset that “They will love us if we show that we are not a threat.”

They have no idea how the real world works.

Weakness is not a sign of power. Somewhere, Attila the Hun, Genghis Khan, Julius Caesar and Napoleon et al, are laughing at their foolishness..

I disagree with using the word artificially to describe the security level -- It was deliberately low, and stupidly so.

BTW, NO ONE DIED AT THE WATERGATE.

There will be sound bites for the campaign....some very good ones.

I think Ms Lamb was sent out as the sacrifice....her face showed that she knew it too.

She probably could not afford to lose her job.

Ms Lamb did give the two names of those that where responsible for turning down the request from the SST to maintain given number of forces. This shit is not going to settle down.
PS. I got to watch the entire hearing as it turns out. It is available on the main CSPAN web page. At least at this point in time. 10:11PMEST Wednesday. In case people are viewing this post. Not just at 9PM as I had originally advertised.

Question.

Is it that “they” have no balls or are their balls so big they go beyond my vision?
