Video: Romney Chokes Up Recalling Fallen Navy SEAL

"Lt. Col. Andy Wood, the former head of a Special Forces "Site Security Team" in Libya stated that in spite of multiple pleas from himself and other U.S. security officials on the ground for "more, not less" security personnel, the State Department removed as many as 34 people from the country in the six months before a terrorist attack in Benghazi that killed Ambassador Chris Stevens and three others.

We assassinated Lybya's dictator a short time ago, a man who had fanatic followers, yet somehow we are supposed to not blame our State Department for pulling security forces from this nation? You don't think embassy and consulate protection in a country in this kind of turmoil should have taken priority over money spent on Michelle's vacations? Or Valerie Jarrett's security detail that went with her on vacation in the U.S.? Have another paper cup of kool aide.
