Libya security cut while Vienna embassy gained Chevy Volts


In a May 3, 2012, email, the State Department denied a request by a group of Special Forces assigned to protect the U.S. embassy in Libya to continue their use of a DC- 3 airplane for security operations throughout the country.
The subject line of the email, on which slain Ambassador Chris Stevens was copied, read: “Termination of Tripoli DC-3 Support.”

**Four days later, on May 7, the State Department authorized the U.S. embassy in Vienna to purchase a $108,000 electric vehicle charging station for the embassy motor pool’s new Chevrolet Volts. The purchase was a part of the State Department’s “Energy Efficiency Sweep of Europe” initiative, which included hundreds of thousands of taxpayer dollars on green program expenditures at various U.S. Embassies.

Instead Of Security, State Was Buying ‘Volts’ | Sweetness & Light

Tsk tsk priorities. Protecting our people **not high on Obama’s list. Now the democrats will claim the republicans cut funding while omitting they to voted to do so but what they do no admit is security programs were not slashed.

However, I guess that $2 billion dollars earmarked for security was needed elsewhere
