Benghazi Inquiry Finds State Dept "Leadership and Management Deficiencies" Caused Inadequate Security at Embassy

Trouble for Hillary Clinton's record


Security at the U.S. mission in BenghaziLibya was grossly inadequate to deal with a Sept. 11 attack that killed a U.S. ambassador and three others because of systemic failures within the State Department, an official inquiry found on Tuesday.

In a scathing assessment, the review cited "leadership and management" deficiencies at two bureaus of the department, poor coordination among officials inWashington and "real confusion" on the ground over who had the responsibility, and the power, to make decisions that involved policy and security concerns.
