QUICK QUIZ: Are you cut out to be Secretary of State?

Which would you choose?
A. Security for the Libyan Ambassador
B. Chevy Volts for Berlin

If you answered B, you could replace Hillary Clinton!

In a May 3, 2012, email, the State Department denied a request by a group of Special Forces assigned to protect the U.S. embassy in Libya to continue their use of a DC- 3 airplane for security operations throughout the country.

The subject line of the email, on which slain Ambassador Chris Stevens was copied, read: “Termination of Tripoli DC-3 Support.”

Four days later, on May 7, the State Department authorized the U.S. embassy in Vienna to purchase a $108,000 electric vehicle charging station for the embassy motor pool’s new Chevrolet Volts.

Madness. Sheer madness.

I can hear the lamentations of potential terrorists in and around Vienna now:

"Be careful! The US has installed IEDs around their Embassies disguised as cars!" ;-)

Thanks for reading!
