Report: Three at State Department Resign Following Benghazi Report

The State Department security chief and two other officials have resigned following publication of a report that faulted State for systematic management failures and a lack of security at the U.S. mission in Benghazi Libya, the Associated Press reported.

Relying on an anonymous administration official, the Associated Press reported that Eric Boswell, the assistant secretary of State for diplomatic security, and Charlene Lamb, the deputy assistant secretary in charge of embassy security, were pressured to step down following today’s report.

 

A third official, who worked for the Bureau of Near East Affairs, also resigned but was not identified.

The report, from an independent panel, blamed the State Department for failures in management and “grossly inadequate” security at the mission, where Ambassador Chris Stevens and three others died in the Sept. 11 attack.
