If congressional Republicans had any shame, they wouldn’t ask why there wasn’t more security at our facility in Benghazi.

For the record, back in 2011, House Republicans cut the requested amount for security in our outposts overseas by $128 million. Then they doubled down in 2012, cutting the funding by $331 million. Then, just to show their indifference to embassy and consulate security, Republican Rep. Paul Ryan’s proposed budget for 2014, approved by almost every congressional Republican, cut the security funding $400 million.

Not enough security at Benghazi? We know why.
