Former President Bill Clinton worked overtime to get President Barack Obama re-elected, but that didn’t stop Obama from publishing a scathing report on Benghazi that blames "deficiencies of management and leadership" of US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. The report was made public while Hillary Clinton is recovering from a mini stroke she suffered last week.
According to Reuters, “security at the U.S. mission in Benghazi, Libya was grossly inadequate to deal with a September 11 attack that killed a U.S. ambassador and three others because of failures with the State Department, an official inquiry found on Tuesday.”
In blistering attacked signed off by Obama, the review cited “leadership and management” deficiencies at two department offices, abysmal coordination among officials and ‘real confusion’ in Washington and in the field over who should assume responsibility, and the power to make decisions that involved serious security and policy issues.
As reported by Reuters, “the attack killed Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans and set off a political furor as Republicans used the issue to attack President Barack Obama before the November 6 election in which he won a second term.
The report appears likely to tarnish the four-year tenure of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
