Marines trying to repel the attack were told not take live ammunition as the attackers were breaching the wall!
Senators with a spine, voting to de-fund Libya, Egypt & Pakistan:
Eighty-one others voted against stopping foreign aid. After Senator Paul’s speech on the Senate floor in support of his bill, there followed for the next hour a pitiful parade of losers at the podium explaining why they thought we need to fund countries who hate us and won’t protect our embassies.
Many of our U. S. Senators have been in Washington too long because outside of Congress it’s hard to find many who think it’s a good idea to keep throwing money down this rat-hole.
BTW -We’re Broke! ($16 Trillion and counting)
Besides over $4 BILLION we give annually to Egypt, Libya and Pakistan, America also gives foreign aid to our creditors! We owe $1 TRILLION+ to China and yet they still receive $27 Million in aid and other development grants from us! Are those monies deducted from our debt, inquiring minds want to know? We owe over $127 BILLION to Russia and they receive $71 Million in U.S. aid. Did oil-rich Iraq or Libya offset our in oil American costs to depose those dictators? NO.
U.S. aid given to corrupt regimes does not reach the poor people. It is stolen by their leaders. As the misery quotient rises and the quality of life in these countries declines -the U.S. invariably gives them more aid! Hillary Clinton stood before the House of Representatives as this vote was being debated in the Senate, pleading for more aid to Egypt WITH NO CONDITIONS ON THAT MONEY!
Not only have NObama & Hildebeast have lied to the American people about these attacks from day-1 (aided and abetted by the MSM), didja ever hear that security details were prohibited from using live ammunition? Then in misguided damage control, the administration spent $70 Million to produce PR spots running on Pakistani television again condemning the anti-Islamic video. I have not heard any high official (Romney doesn’t count) standing up for America’s right to free speech.
That PR blitz didn’t end so well, only emboldening the mobs, literally pouring gas on the fire to those Muslim countries who have killed at least 17 more people in their continued demonstrations.
