Benghazi Attacks = Systematic Failure?

Well surprise, surprise...  The accountability review board Secretary of State Hillary convened to look into the Benghazi attacks has issued its report to have found:  no one accountable.  Imagine that?!?  Well, not entirely.  According to the report, the board "remains fully convinced that responsibility for the tragic loss of life, injuries, and damage to U.S. facilities and property rests solely and completely with the terrorists who perpetrated the attack."  So there you have it, it's the terrorists' fault.

They also blame "systematic failure" and "management deficiencies at senior levels" and, quite expectedly, the usual obligatory reference from their government report writing template which points to a lack of funds for them to accomplish their mission in stating, "For many years the State Department has been engaged in a struggle to obtain the resources necessary to carry out its work, with varying degrees of success", "a few State Department managers to favor restricting the use of resources as a general orientation" and "budgetary austerity looms large ahead".  It simply means, we haven't been able to squeeze more cash out of the slaves to buy everything we want and then some, so we tried to do more with less and, therefore, failure isn't our fault.

Well, there's another 1000 manhours worth of taxpayer funds wasted (extremely gross estimate of the board claiming to have interviewed "over 100 individuals, reviewed thousands of pages of documents, and viewed hours of video footage") to pay a monkey court with a predetermined outcome.

I don't know why I continue to read these things.  I used to laugh at them, but after years of reading the same crap over and over covering up ineptitude with claims doing the best they can with resource shortfalls, they're just not funny anymore.
