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 America’s reliance on local Libyan guards for the protection of its diplomats.
In a war torn country with reports Al Qaeda has infiltrated the country, our state department decides to reduce protection. In the next debate which I believe is supposed to be on foreign policy, I hope Rommey blasts him about this and all the other major mistakes Obama has made on policy.
I dislike Rommey but he has shown more presidential material than our current slacker partier-in chief. Obama needs to be relegated to speaking engagements and parties the taxpayer does not have to pay for.
