6. 1 Problem: The Bill was for funding Embassy security, not missions in provincial hinderlands.

The Benghazi installation was basically diplomatic cover for a CIA station. The Agency have their own budget, which has been steadily expanded.

The measure you're referring to would not have provided one dime more for security at Benghazi.

This whole blame game is a distraction from the real issue raised by the attack: what were the Ambassador and CIA doing in the wilds of tribal East Libya, that's crawling with Jihadi militants and looted anti-aircraft missiles, many of which are headed into Syria?
