2012 Testimony: Lack of Budget Not a Factor in Benghazi Security Decisions

by John Sexton 8 May 2013
Share This:

During today's hearings, Democrats have suggested that cuts to the State Department's budget may have played a role in the lack of security in Benghazi. This claim was addressed during the previous hearings which took place on Oct. 10, 2012.

 

 

Rep. Dana Rohrabacher: "Was there any budget consideration and lack of budget which led you not to increase the number of people in the security force there?"

 

Charlene Lamb: No, sir.

 

The full video of the exchange was posted by the House Oversight Committee last October and is available here.

This was a given.  During this time frame Embassies were"redecorating."  Getting new paint jobs, re-doing their spots equipment, building coffee shops......So the "budget crunch" that they were talking about was non-existent in the State Depts. world.
