During questioning today at a Capitol Hill hearing on the Benghazi terror attack, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton referred to the Hollywood movie Argo to explain her point:

"Marine security guards, as you know, are very much a presence on more than 150 of our posts," Clinton said, in response to a question about Marine securing embassies around the world. "And in order to give them the facilities and support they need--they need a Marine house. They need to be very close to the embassy. Because as -- if you saw the recent movie Argo, you saw the Marines in there destroying classified material when the mob was outside in Tehran."
