Senate Benghazi report faults State Department

Published: 12.31.12, 18:44 / Israel News

The Senate Homeland Security Committee's report about the September 11 attacks on the US mission and a nearby annex, which killed four Americans, including the US ambassador to Libya, faulted intelligence agencies for not having enough focus on Libyan extremists. It also faulted the State Department for waiting for specific warnings instead of acting on security.

 

The State Department's decision to keep the US mission in Benghazi open despite inadequate security and increasingly dangerous threat assessments before it was attacked in September was a "grievous mistake," the Senate report said on Monday. (Reuters)
