    At the MOMENT the budget wasn't the reason, but over time a shortage of funding reduces the ability of security personnel to plan and implement security measures.  

    If you are on a tight budget and your teen asks you for a new car for their birthday, you don't have to stop and run the numbers to say no. All State Department personnel are extremely budget conscious, and the first response to ANY proposal that costs money is no because there is no room in the budget.
