Perhaps the GOP shouldn't have cut funding for Embassy security.

That dog won't hunt. About $300 million was cut out of $2.1 billion, leaving about $1.8 billion. That's plenty of money to, say, move the marine detachment from Paris (which isn't exactly known as a dangerous, terrorist haven) to Benghazi (which, well, WAS a known terrorist haven). If this administration couldn't get the job done with $1.8 billion dollars, plenty of foreknowledge that Benghazi was dangerous and the Ambassador in Libya begging them to do it then that's 100% on them, period.
