Benghazi Report: Ambassador Partly To Blame
(AP) The Senate Intelligence Committee is blaming the State Department, the intelligence community and even the late Ambassador Chris Stevens for failing to communicate and heed warnings of terrorist activity before the 2012 assault on the U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya.
Stevens and three other Americans were killed in the attack.
The panel's report says the U.S. military was not positioned to aid the Americans because the ambassador had rejected its offers of security teams.
Committee chairman Dianne Feinstein, a Democrat, says she hopes this will put to rest conspiracy theories about the militant attacks that night. Republican vice chairman Saxby Chambliss says the report shows despite a deteriorating security situation in Benghazi, the U.S. government did not do enough to prevent the attacks.
