Benghazi Report Critical of Diplomatic Security at U.S. Consulate in Libya


The State Department’s Accountability Review Board finished its investigation on the issues surrounding the attack on the U.S. Diplomatic Mission in Benghazi. Last week, Breitbart News first reported the breakdown in the State Department’s Diplomatic Security at the U.S. consulate in Benghazi during the September 11 attack.

According to the unclassified report:

Overall, the number of Bureau of Diplomatic Security (DS) security staff in Benghazi on the day of the attack and in the months and weeks leading up to it was inadequate, despite repeated requests from Special Mission Benghazi and Embassy Tripoli for additional staffing. Board members found a pervasive realization among personnel who served in Benghazi that the Special Mission was not a high priority for Washington when it came to security-related requests, especially those relating to staffing.
