PDF: Report on State Dept. failings in deadly Benghazi attack

| No Comments


From the Associated Press report on the independent investigation into the deadly attack on the United States consulate in Benghazi, Libya, that left Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans dead on Sept. 11, 2012:

An independent panel charged with investigating the deadly Sept. 11 attack in Libya that killed the U.S. ambassador and three other Americans has concluded that systematic management and leadership failures at the State Department led to "grossly" inadequate security at the mission in Benghazi.

"Systematic 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," the panel said.
