He is essentially saying that its open season on ambassadors in unstable countries!

"Very expensive" to protect our American lives......not worth it right???

The US has never pulled staff from an embassy right????

Benghazi could have been prevented.......that is a fact.

Obama chose not to defend it.
There is evidence that Obama had warnings and chose to ignore them.
There is evidence that Obama deliberately misled us on what transpired afterwards.

Colin Powell once said to Bush......."if you break it, you own it".

Obama specifically and directly overthrew Khadafi. Look at the situation in Libya for pete sake! He broke it and now he owns it.
