Moreover again, it has nothing to due with Charlene lamb reducing security after the Consulate was attacked the Second time up until the Attack on the Anniversary of 911.

Diplomacy is the art of saying 'nice doggy" until you can find a gun.
The State Department had repeatedly denied her request, citing a lack of money. But that kind of response, she wrote Albright, was "endangering the lives of embassy personnel."
A matter of months later, on Aug. 7, 1998, the American embassies in Tanzania and Kenya were simultaneously attacked with car bombs. In Kenya, 12 American diplomats and more than 200 Africans were killed.
As in Benghazi, requests for more security were denied, warnings were issued, prior incidents were ignored and Susan Rice went on TV to explain it all.
Within 24 hours, Rice, then assistant secretary of state for African affairs, went on PBS as spokesperson for the administration — just as she was regarding Benghazi when she parroted the administration's false narrative on five Sunday talk shows on Sept. 16, 2012, that Benghazi was caused by a flash mob enraged by an Internet video. Then, as now, she worked for a Clinton.
Eerie similarities between Benghazi and Nairobi are many. A review of the attacks showed the CIA repeatedly told State Department officials in Washington and in the Kenya embassy that there was an active terrorist cell in Kenya connected to Osama bin Laden, who masterminded the attack.

Lets not forget the 4000 Wounded. Throw in Darfur and Somalia. Blackhawk Down sound familiar.
Dear Democrats......How did this happen again when ya said ya took care of it last time. That it would never happen again. What Happened?
The presidents budget request for State Department security was denied by the Republicans when they took control of congress in 2011.
Republicans insisted the State Department security should get less than they needed....a lot less.
The Democrats had to negotiate for more funding and a compromise was made with the Republicans.
The Democrats voted for the negotiated amount, not the Republicans reduced amount.
If Democrats still controled the house the State Department would have gotten the amount they needed.
The negotiated amount still fell millions short...$270 MILLION according to Factcheck....of the budget request for State Department security.
Therefore, State Department security was still under funded because of the Republicans.
....Democrats enacted $1.803 billion for embassy security, construction and maintenance for fiscal 2010, when they still controlled the Senate and House. After Republicans took control of the House and picked up six Senate seats, Congress reduced the enacted budget to $1.616 billion in fiscal 2011, and to $1.537 billion for 2012.
The administration requested $1.801 billion for security, construction and maintenance for fiscal 2012; House Republicans countered with a proposal to cut spending to $1.425 billion. The House agreed to increase it to $1.537 billion after negotiations with the Senate.
