    does it go something like

    - congress led by republicans pushed for cuts, which affected the State Department embassy security budget (here is Republican Rep Chaffetz bragging about it on CNN).

    - turmoil occurs in Libya on 9/11 and it ended up being an attack based on a number of things (one motivation of the individuals was apparently the film, but that's not the sole part)

    - military in the African command made the call not to send help from Tripoli due to stretched resources and the potential for unrest in Tripoli itself.

    - Obama went with this call.

    - Hillary took full responsibility for the understaffed security.

    Where's the conspiracy? What am I missing? What is the coverup? And what were these so-called "whistleblowers" even revealing except just a rehashed account of the details of what went on ?

    Deficits don't matter, jobs do.
