Err, we are not colleagues...

Err, it was the Republicans which voted down funds for more forces to be available.

Your "facts" are almost transparently in error.

There is no evidence at this point that Obama himself was in any way personally involved in a decision about the staffing level. Frankly, it would be surprising if he were.

We have had testimony that 60 would not have been enough. Do you advocate 10-20 fold increase in security forces at any embassy which might be at risk? Quite aside from the Republican-denied cost, what would be the message we sent to other countries is the security staff was 10-20X the diplomatic staff?
