The Benghazi Report’s Key Points

Posted by | December 19, 2012 14:46 | Filed under: Top Stories

Via Buzzfeed:

  • “Systematic failures” and “management deficiencies at senior levels” resulted in inadequate security.
  • There was no protest prior to the attacks on the consulate; responsibility lies with “terrorists.”
  • Intelligence provided no “warning” of the attacks, but there was an awareness of “the persistent, general threat” to Libya.
  • Security systems “fell short”; personnel “did their best with what they had, which, in the end was not enough.”
  • Reliance on Libyan forces for security “in the event of an attack was misplaced.”
  • “Not enough time given the speed of the attacks” for armed military assets to have “made a difference.”
  • No single individual in U.S. government “willfully ignored his or her responsibilities.”
  • Response from the Libyan government found to be “profoundly lacking,” reflecting their control in Benghazi.
  • Congress must “provide necessary resources” to the State Department.
