Benghazi Report Blames 'Systemic Failures' at State Department

An independent panel has sharply criticized the U.S. State Department in its report on the Sept. 11 attacks on the Benghazi consulate. The consulate was unable to defend itself thanks to "systemic failures and leadership and management deficiencies" at the State Department.

Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans were killed on Sept. 11 in Benghazi, Libya. The Special Mission post was overrun by militants who used rocket-propelled grenades, mortars and machine-gun fire, the 39-page report states.
