      A few politically-motivated crazy Republican people are trying to create problems for the President and the State Department for reasons having little to do with the actual event and important questions it has raised.  It does not help that the most conservative Republicans and their NeoCon friends do not believe in diplomacy - they believe in armies and invasions as the one and only solution to any problem.

      the extent to which the time in this testimony is dedicated to the State Department's mission in all of the hotspot countries being largely geared towards helping the countries build "security" apparatuses - which are effectively conversations about military advice, support and funding for those countries.

      Why we are doing this is the point of debate you might want to take up - as it is the time worn big picture debate about what our role should be in the affairs of other countries around the world.
