Darrell Issa who is Chairman of the Republican Witch Hunt Committee in the House is running hearings on the lack of security at the US Embassy in Libya. Some Republican loyalists assigned to Libya dutifully complained that the State Department wasn’t meeting their security requests. What they actually wanted was their own aircraft, the State Dept told them to fly commercial. In fact they hadn’t requested anything for the Consulate in Benghazi. That city was considered friendly territory, and in fact the locals rallied to the aid of the Americans. In the aftermath the killing of the US diplomats, the civilian population rose up, overran militant’s compounds across the city and burned them down. We could use that sort of patriotism here.
