Courts (center) testified Thursday during a public House Foreign Affairs Committee hearing that diplomatic security received a surge of funding from 1998 to 2008, but one-third of the money went to protect sites in Iraq, and much of the rest was spent in ways “more reactive than strategic.” (Andrew Harnik/The Washington Times)
