The budgets going to be cut more next year, no way the WH wants to appear to not be able to handle doing things with less. Besides if the WH believed the the security arrangements where less than "adequate", the executive branch can send in anywhere they want as last year shows...instead of calling it kinetic military action in Libya last year call it non-kinetic military action, war on terror or whatever it was called when he decided to send 100 troops into Uganda to fight rebels,etc...without Congressional approval.
