WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will respond on Tuesday to U.S. lawmakers who wrote to her requesting information about an attack on the U.S. mission in Benghazi last month in which four people died, State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland said.

Clinton is ready to cooperate "closely" with Congress in investigating the attack in Benghazi, Nuland said at a regular daily news briefing.

Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans were killed in the assault on the mission the evening of September 11.

All I ever see on the news is how our troops and border patrol agents are getting their butts kicked by muslims and the drug cartel.

Are our personnel poorly trained? Are we wussies?

We need to stop being targets and start being proactive!

Yah know, I really am looking forward to hearing how Clinton and Obama are going to dance around this “screw up”. In my opinion the requests for help were disregarded for “political gains”. Obama would like to tout how he “played the flute” and all the muslims bowed dowm to him, but now he has to face reality and the fact that his decisions cost people their lives.
