And then, too, the Democrats are railing against the Republicans that “it’s THEIR fault” for voting against funding - when the damn Democrats voted against the funding in larger numbers than Republicans did - all the while sending large numbers of Obama’s pet project (Volts) to another embassy in a less volatile area for their security detail! - This darned “green energy” funny money has been poured out of Obama’s (the U.S.) boot like water! - A lot is spilt twixt Obama’s cup and his lip via bankruptcies! - We have certainly paid “reparations” to the gluttonous Obamas during this outrage.
Send in the Volts?
Embassy personnel are now riding around in suicide cars? H3ll, why worry about assassins when Volts could burst into flames at any moment? How easy is that?
The “funding” argument is outrageous on its face—and an insult to all State Department employees. It is the job of any administration to allocate funds among agencies as it sees fit—and they can always lower security at low-risk embassies if needed to save funds. Congress does not micro-manage which embassies get which security dollars.
