I'm breathing a sigh of relief that my daughter didn't join the State Dept when she got out of school. At the time I was so sure she would be safer in some embassy abroad being protected by the Marines than she would if she was just here walking around downtown Atlanta.
Why is it the Ambassador's decision whether to arm security details at an embassy? Why is that even a decision that needs to be made? Shouldn't that be a policy decision mandated by the President and Secretary of State?
Protecting interests abroad starts with defending your presence on foreign soil. It isn't only protecting your financial interests abroad. This is the foundation by which your foreign policy is built.
With an election months away and Obama going at Romney ( I don't like either of them) about his lack of foreign policy experience, Hillary is looking more and more like the Jackass Whisperer than the Secretary of State. They should be ashamed of themselves. All of them.
