I guess that depends on who you believe. Blanco continued out her term. Brown (Bush administration) resigned in disgrace.

In a September 26, 2005 hearing, former FEMA chief Michael Brown testified before a U.S. House subcommittee about FEMA's response. During that hearing, Representative Stephen Buyer (R-IN) inquired as to why President Bush's declaration of state of emergency of August 27 had not included the coastal parishes of Orleans, Jefferson, and Plaquemines.[19] (In fact, the declaration did not include any of Louisiana's coastal parishes, whereas the coastal counties were included in the declarations for Mississippi[20] and Alabama.[21]) Brown testified that this was because Louisiana Governor Blanco had not included those parishes in her initial request for aid, a decision that he found "shocking." After the hearing, Blanco released a copy of her letter, which showed she had requested assistance for "all the southeastern parishes including the City of New Orleans" as well specifically naming 14 parishes including Jefferson, Orleans and Plaquemines

What "millions in government service had it covered"?

He was doing his job. The State Department. The military is not a 911 service. They are not "on call" for embassy's being attacked. No armed predators were in the area. No aircraft could respond in time. No additional forces could have made any difference in time. Your Republican congress critters could have beefed up embassy security instead of cutting it.

Is that why troops on a plane ready to deploy, were ordered off the plane to change their cloths.  Besides the three ex military whoi were also killed almost made a difference.   Besides, we don't know if those troops would or would not have made a difference since they were not deployed.  But, keep repeating obama.

"Just keep repeating debunked lies?"

You ought to know:

Quote

(Oct. 12, 2012)

In testimony Wednesday before the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, Charlene Lamb, a deputy assistant secretary of state for diplomatic security, was asked, “Was there any budget consideration and lack of budget which led you not to increase the number of people in the security force there?”


Lamb responded, “No, sir.”


Recall that Lamb is the person who denied requests from the top diplomatic security officer in Libya to retain a 16-man team of military personnel who had been protecting diplomats.
Source (among thousands): Link

Also:

Quote

There has been some back and forth between Republicans and Democrats over funding for security in Libya in the wake of Ambassador Chris Stevens’s death. Republicans have questioned whether the State Department had adequate security to protect the ambassador, and Democrats have countered that Republicans tried to cut funding for embassy security. What does the budget record show?
According to the fiscal year (FY) 2013 Congressional Budget Justification Department of State Operations (p. 11), overall funding for those programs has increased sharply over the past decade. Indeed, Worldwide Security Protection is more than double what it was a decade ago. Despite reductions from budget peaks in FY 2009 and FY 2010, both budget lines are higher than in FY 2008. (continues below chart)

Posted Image
Comparing FY 2011 actual funding versus the FY 2012 estimate, there appears to be a reduction in Worldwide Security Protection and Embassy Security, Construction and Maintenance. But that reduction does not account for additional funding in FY 2012 from Overseas Contingency Operations funds amounting to $236 million for Worldwide Security Protection (p. 63) and $33 million for Embassy Security, Construction and Maintenance (p. 467). As a result, total funds for Worldwide Security Protection for FY 2012 are estimated to be $94 million higher than in FY 2011, while Embassy Security, Construction and Maintenance is estimated to be $61 million less than FY 2011. Together, there is a net increase.

So, just keep on repeating your own debunked lie.

That just shows that Brown has a sense of responsibility and Blanco doesn't. One failed and resigned. The other failed and continued to fail, at public expense. Not suprising you think continued failure is better. After all you are still an Obama supporter, even though he may go down as the biggest failure ever to hold the office of President.

You can wish for this but the military says they are not a 911 service. I didn't make it up. You can have your Republican congressmen vote to allocate more funds for embassy security rather than cutting them.

So, the US Marines, who are US EMBASSY GUARDS (among many other things), are not meant to go help support an embassy that is under attack? Really?

If you aren't making that up, show me the law (or policy or what have you).
