New Report Details Benghazi Security Failures

Libya SC New Report Details Benghazi Security Failures

A State Department review board investigating the Sept. 11 attacks on American facilities in Benghazi found leadership and management failures in the department for not providing adequate security prior to the attack.

“Systemic failures and leadership and management deficiencies at senior levels within two bureaus of the State Department … resulted in a Special Mission security posture that was inadequate for Benghazi and grossly inadequate to deal with the attack that took place,” an unclassified version of the report made public Tuesday night stated.

The report produced by a State Department Accountability Review Board also said, contrary to initial claims by President Barack Obama and his top advisers, that there was never a protest at the diplomatic compound where Amb. Chris Stevens and three other Americans were killed. The others were Sean Smith, Tyrone Woods, and Glen Doherty.

Two other United States personnel were seriously wounded, the compound was destroyed, and it and a nearby CIA annex were abandoned.

The board was headed by former State Department official Thomas Pickering and retired Adm. Mike Mullen, former chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

  1. Seeks_the_truth says:

    The two Navy SEALS were murdered as they SAVED over 30 survivors. They were killed HOURS after the start of this terrorist attack. How is it that time ran out to help them?
    Still waiting on the two MOST IMPORTANT questions asked to be answered.
    1. WHO gave the order to stand down?
    2. WHO pushed the video?

    The Benghazi terrorist attack is not finalized till we get these answers, and someone is held accountable.

      Seeks as Sen Turban Durban stated today it was everybodies fault including Amb.Stevens with the exception of Hitlary and Obutthole.Three people already resigned but Sambo or Hitlary didn't.Seeing you always answer I have a question for you.After passing out from lack of beverage she hit her head and got a concussion now will she have an excuse for not being able to remember the Benghazi terror attack?

        Amnesia should set in by then. Good catch!

        • Edwardkoziol says:

          If concussions are good enough for the NFL to legitimize the shooting sprees as a way of blaming it on guns.Then Hitlary is no dummy she is going to use this as her defense I don't remember.Obuger is going to fall coming down the stairs of AF1 so he can claim amnesia and Holder is going to say he fell asleep and hit his hed on his desk.We are going to have an epidemic of concussions in the evil regime.Maybe Patreus should say he was hit on the head and while he was boffing that babe he thought it was his wife.

          • Seeks_the_truth says:

            Eh, one problem with that scenario. Oblameo and Holdum haven't a brain to get a concussion. With such a little brain in such a big head, it's a wonder Hitlary only JUST got a concussion.

    • 1. Only one person has the authority to order our entire military the order to stand down.
      2. Only one person has the authority to order a Theater Commander relieved of command if the latter refuses an order from the former.
      3. Only one person has the authority to order a UN Ambassador to push a story.

      Only POTUS/CINC has the authority to do each and every one of those.

      The blood of Americans Chris Stevens, Sean Smith, Tyrone Woods, and Glen Doherty is on Obama’s hands for effectively ensuring their deaths after the attack began, and on Hillary Clinton’s hands for effectively inviting the attack.
