Does Benghazi probe drop unintentional bombshell?

benghazi-340x170

The results of an independent investigation released this week probing the Benghazi attack contains information indicating the U.S. mission in Libya was involved in activities outside the diplomatic realm.

The 39-page document uses phraseology and descriptions not previously utilized to describe the facility and the role it may have played in Benghazi.

The report, based on a probe led by former U.S. diplomat Thomas Pickering, calls the facility a “Special U.S. Mission.”

Until now, government descriptions routinely referred to the facility as a “mission,” while the news media largely wrongly labeled the building a “consulate.”

The report divulges how the mission’s special “non-status” made providing security to the facility difficult.
