"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."

Hillary is missing the point. Quelle suprize.

No one expects her to know blueprints, blast walls, sight lines, passive and active protection systems. Why should she? She's a jumped up, unethical lawyer with delusions of importance.

She is correct though, things she doesn't know about are why you hire specialists. Then you LISTEN TO THEM!! I mean, it's not as if a secondary location in a war ravaged country is not an obvious priority to be dealt with.

Vaguely recall someone saying that the upgrading of facilities security in 2012 were being done alphabetically. Not by risk assessment. Think that came up on TOS (honestly not sure) and it dropped through the cracks fairly quickly.

But seriously, when your go to plan if a consulate is attacked is to run to a house and hope no hostiles know about it - that is messed up.

You also have to MEET WITH THEM.  Obama is known to not meet with his cabinet or attend briefings so maybe she took a cue from her boss. :pondering:
