Calling BS on Hillary's Bengazi Testimony

I'm not going to spend a lot of time analyzing Hillary's self-serving testimony in front of the Senate yesterday. I will say the inadequate security at Bengazi had nothing to do with inadequate funding at the State Department. The State Department fritters away tens of millions, even hundreds of millions of dollars on foolish projects and should have used that money instead for enhanced embassy security in the worlds most dangerous places (hint, the Middle East (especially Libya and Egypt), and any predominantly Muslim country with a strong militant element). It is inexcusable and nothing less than incompetence for a Secretary of State to lack the situational awareness to recognize that extra security measures are required in those counties that are hostile toward the US, and especially on 9/11 of all days in the year following the take down of Osama bin Laden. How someone with their finger on the pulse of world opinion could have failed to see this coming is beyond me.
