State Department Had No $$$ for Benghazi Security, Did Have $16 Mil for Kindles and $4.5 for Art


According to Hillary Clinton’s long-delayed Benghazigate testimony, the State Department just did not have enough money to provide security for a mission in one of the most dangerous places in the world.

It did however have 16 million dollars to spend on 2,500 kindle book readers at the drastically inflated price of $6,600 per device.

How much security could that 16 million buy?

It had $79,000 to spend on Obama’s books and $20,000 on a portrait of Obama. The US Embassy had $150,000 to spend on a book about the ambassador’s residence. The US Embassy in Austria had $150,000+ for a Chevy Volt and its charging station.

And here is what else Hillary’s State Department did have money for…

7.9 billion dollars for Obama’s Global Health Initiative.

1 billion for global climate change.

2.2 billion to strengthen democratic institutions in Pakistan.

And of courseMosque renovations.

In 2011 the State Department provided funds to restore the 15th century Gobarau Minaret in Katsina State in Nigeria’s predominantly Muslim north, an area which has become a virtual killing field for Christians at the hands of Muslim militants, led by the al-Qaeda-linked terror group Boko Haram.

And $4.5 million for Art in Embassies

The New York Times reported in 2009 that Art in Embassies spends about $4.5 million a year for permanent art acquisitions; chief curator Virginia Shore said at the time that artists and dealers support the program via favorable pricing; for the embassy in Beijing, an outlay of $800,000 yielded works with an appraised value of $30 million.

How much Benghazi security would 800,000 dollars have bought? If Hillary Clinton had stopped buying paintings, maybe four Americans would still be alive today.

The State Department also has a Chief Diversity Officer, whose job it is to warn that “holding the fort” is a racist phrase.

As far as security goes, 200 million dollars were wasted on Iraqi police training that never went anywhere.

And nothing says State Department waste, like waste management.

The U.S. Department of State and partners from the LAUNCH: Beyond Waste Forum announce a challenge to identify ten game-changing innovations with the potential to transform current waste management systems and practices. LAUNCH: Beyond Waste seeks transformational solutions to the problem of waste through disruptive innovation, behavioral change, systems design, as well as improved policy and stewardship.

The challenge, which will be open from April 1 to May 15, 2012, asks creative minds to formulate innovative ideas for minimizing waste or transforming it into new products.

Nope, no waste to see here.

The State Department just had no money in its 50 billion dollar budget to pay for Benghazi security. None at all.

Anyone who isn't doing that for themselves is a sheep.

    I also recall that the State Department was purchasing Obama's autobiographies, and then distributing the books to embassies. (Like Mao's Little Red Book — but in Obama's case it would just be "little read." But I suppose it was a lucrative "business" for the Fraud-in-Chief…feathering his nest at taxpayer's expense.)

      Funny coincidence. Hitler's only source of private income was the royalties from "Mein Kampf"

    "As far as security goes, 200 million dollars were wasted on Iraqi police training that never went anywhere."

    How many American dollars was wasted on a war that George W. Bush started in Iraq in his quest for "weapons of mass destruction"? $810,542,654 and counting.

    • Mary Sue

      except those weapons of mass destruction actually STILL exist, and are being held by Bashir Assad in Syria. Meaning if Assad falls, al quaida gets their paws on them.

      • hank

        Those convoys we observed leaving Iraq while the French obstructed the security counsel in the UN are coming to a new sense of prominence . I actually regret them being given a 14 month head start to clear up the sites. Also, an Iraqi air force officer testified that they flew the WMD into Syria on modified commercial planes. Okay if Bashir Assad uses them and people die, will it be said that it's GWB fault for not following the intelligence reports that lead to Syria being in receipt of Saddam's war stuff. The shame will forever be on Democrats including BHO for opposing the war effort.

    • Keith

      OMG! Are you Obama lite? Even the democrats said that Saddam Husein had WMDs. Clinton was lobbing cruise missiles into Iraq in between getting blowjobs. Quit drinking the damned Koolaid.Bush has not be president for over 4 years and until the democrats took over congress, the economy was doing okay. It was not great but you can thank 50 years of democrat control for all of that.

    • Donna

      Marlene, GWB is not longer President. The Iraq war was started when economic times were not so desparate and we were not shorting security at our embassies like are today. GWB did not take security away in order to spend elsewhere. Benghazi happened on Obama's watch. It happened on H Clinton's budget. Obama and Clinton reduced security to spend elsewhere. Plain and simple. No bias.

        Couldn't have said it better.

      News flash. Bush is no longer president, I repeat, Bush is no longer president. To continue doing something wrong just because someone else did is a litle stupid, is it not? To continue blaming someone out of office for over 4 years is flat ignorant.

    • Kay Day

      How many American dollars were wasted on the more than a million pounds of bombs Bill Clinton dropped on Iraq in his last three years in office?We were already at war in Iraq. Your Dems just didn't tell you. Go read congressional statements on Clinton's undeclared Iraq war.

      How many dollars have we spent on Libya, you know, the war Obama didn't ask Congress permission to enter? Obama's war, he said, was for "humanitarian" reasons. Right. BP is very appreciative.

    • Telyst

      If you can't defend…..attack…. So do two wrongs make you right?

    • Hank

      This may come as a shock to you but the democrats gave GWB permission to make war on Iraq. They were for it before they were against it girl friend. Also, since 2006 they controlled the congress completely and could stop funding for the war on a day's notice . This sweetie, is what they did to the Vietnam war under Richard Nixon. The blame goes squarely on their shoulders for going along to get along and having it both ways. Obama could stop it now or at anytime. why not whine to him for not stopping it now or sooner ?

    • guest

      That obama continued, and another he tripled and 2 more (and counting) he started on his own..?

    • darrell

      I recall that most of the Democrats in both the Senate and House supported the war in Iraq. I believe that we have wasted lives and money in both the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. There were weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, the Iraqis moved them to Syria. And quit whining about President Bush he has been out of office for four years. As far as I am concerned as a Vietnam veteran I believe that if we are going to engage in war then conduct it like we did in WWII, bomb the hell out of the enemy, and show no mercy.As the late General Curtis Lemay said "We should bomb them back into the stone age!" The Arabs and Iraqis and Afghanis do not give a rat's ass about their nations becoming a democracy. 80% of them detest us. And the Afghan government is a crooked, corrupt bunch of s.o.b.s. I cannot believe that our current illustrous president escalated the war in Afghanistan and then issued a pull out date. What brilliant strategy! And what about Bill Cl

      Marlene, when will liberals like you stop blaming GW for the world's problems? He had nothing to do with Benghazi, Syria, Egypt, Iran, Africa becoming a haven for terrorists….liberals are like spoiled children agruing over candy. Obama stole the election and I hope that the investigation proves it and he is impeached for fraud and is sent to prison. GW would already have been impeached in the press but not a word from the Times or any other rag over the fraudulent election. The "haves" are getting sick and tired of the "give me mores". I work hard for what I have and I don't want any of it given to lazy, drug addicted, alcohol addictive no-goods with their hand out.

      Is Bush STILL wasting money for the Iraqi war? Somebody had better take his credit card or just deactivate it?
      That's all you noticed in all of the billions of our tax dollars wasted by the Hussein administration? Read it again, please.

    • Michael C

      Bush is history now, whatever you think of him. Shut up about Bush and read the Benghazi investigation report issued by the House of Representatives yesterday. The problem at hand is the fraud in charge now and his administration. The current leader is best compared to two past leaders. Hugo Chavez: Obama uses the Chavez playbook of promoting divisiveness to achieve his socialistic goals. Richard Nixon: Obama uses disinformation campaigns to hide lies and incompetence, especially one that would have heavily impacted the last presidential election.

      They know the risk but also know that they "supposedly" have the back up as requested to help stop what was happening. The problem being that if no one is going to back you up when it is available and requested, how many men and women are going to keep joining and fighting for our rights when they know they will be killed because they the heads of government don't have their backs. You will see our armys with less and less people joining to defend our country if they know it is a defenite death wish.

    We are broke because these corrupt people spend too much. We are broke because they have forgotten that they work for us and are our servants, not the other way around. We are broke because there is NO ONE who holds these people accountable for their actions. No matter how badly they do their jobs, they are rehired to do the same lousy job again and again.

    In the final analysis we are responsible and the enablers who allow these individuals to abuse us the way they do.

  • Sound&Fury

    So on Hillary's watch, not only were repeated requests for additional security denied, but the Ambassor's existing security team was drawn down. Then, when the embassy & consulate were under attack, military leaders were told to stand down & not intercede on their behalf. Then after the attack, Hillary, Obama, Ambassador Rice & the administration spun a story that the whole affair was caused by some obscure Egyptian filmmaker, who now sits in jail, thanks to their cover-up. Yeh right, Hillary… what's the big deal?

    Judy, I echo your comment. When are we going to quit talking and start doing ? We can stop most of this by flooding our representatives with emails, letters and phone calls. Then, when election time comes, we should all vote for the challenger. Yes, there are a few in Washington who are doing a good job, however, it is time to make a statement. If we replace every Senator and Congressperson there, we would see a change for the good of our nation.

    • Elaine

      Robbie: There is no point in flooding our representatives with emails, letters and phone calls. They do not give a damn what the people think if the people question disagree with them. And one only receives a "canned" reply to an email or letter.

      Also, consider the fact most of those in office were RE-ELECTED. That means most people support the corruption, waste, fraud, cryonism, incompetence, lies, and criminal acts and behavior of the federal government.

    Johnson did well then fell down when Pantsuit came back at him.
    Rand Paul was superlative (just getting Boxer to leave was a victory in itself!)
    They already knew Congress was being set up as the fall guy in this, in regard to funding for security, and many, along with Pantsuit were unequivocal as to this being a big part of the problem.
    They had months and they couldn't have this on the table in front of them???

    The congress cut her bugget so that the military could be in places that we can't do any good, like Germay, Japan, Canada, etc. Hillary, not Billary, as a pocket full of money to spend, the money she got was for those friendly nations so we can entertain presidents from naiegboring countries. As for the 6600 for a Kindle, that goes along with the 30 dollar for a roll of toilet paper that the petigon spends. Lets fac it, the military is the problem, like spending money for a plane that will never be used. The military does what they want with the money they have or don't have.

    And when Bill Clinton illegally bombed Yugoslavia and killed over 15,000 Serbian civilians. Yes both the Croatians and Serbs committed genocide against each other.

My guess is that there was no strategic importance there and they had no oil or natural gas lines running throughj there country.
