Security Spending Questioned In Benghazi Hearing
Two top State Department officials admit there were flaws in the security plan for the U.S. facilities in Benghazi, Libya before the September 11th attacks that killed the U.S. ambassador and three other Americans.
FOX News Radio’s Rich Johnson reports from Washington:
At a Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing, California Democrat Barbara Boxer noted that State asked for $2.6 billion for overseas security this year.
(Boxer) “But the House cut this request by more than $300 million.”
Tennessee Republican Bob Corker countered: It’s not just about money. It’s about a department with no imagination.
(Corker) “That doesn’t think outside the box. That is not using the resources that it has in any sort of creative way.”
The State Department officials testifying say Secretary Clinton has accepted all of the recommendations for improving security made in a new independent review of the Benghazi attacks.
