Why not just close down the intelligence networks and put the billions they waste every year BACK into the system, because they dont stop the attacks anyway !!
It's always the same, "X" didn't tell "Y" that "Q" was going to try and kill everyone in the embassy because "X" doesnt like to share his intel, because the last time "X" shared his intel with "Y", "Y" flipped "X"'s terrorist, got a promotion and a new car....
When the FU*K are these bastards going to understand they're playing with peoples lives.

Paul Ryan..A single US Congressman..second guessed the day to day immediate decision making of staffing and security at a specific State Department Compound in Libya?
Yes chances are it could have been prevented. But seeing how they cut the budget for security the funding just wasn't there.
Joe Biden says Paul Ryan cut embassy security by $300 million
Both parties share the blame in this the Republicans control the House Appropriations Committee who came up with the idea to cut the funding and Democrats because Obama signed it.
Cuts from Ryan’s proposed budget
The Obama administration’s Office of Management and Budget has run the numbers in the Ryan budget and argues that it will cut non-defense discretionary spending as a whole by 19 percent between 2013 and 2014. A 19 percent cut to a $2.64 billion line item works out to just over $500 million -- even more than the number Biden cited.
Leaving aside whether this percentage is accurate, using it in this context is problematic. First, it’s not an immediate cut -- according to OMB, the 19 percent cut would happen in the second year of Ryan’s budget, with the first year representing a 5 percent cut.
