US Congress report debunks Benghazi attack claims

US President Barack Obama (R) looks on as caskets of four US diplomats killed in an attack in Benghazi, Libya, are transferred at the Andrews Air Force Base in Maryland on September 14, 2012A probe by a Congressional committee into the September 11, 2012 attack on a US compound in Benghazi debunked allegations that President Barack Obama’s administration fell down on the job. Since the assault on the US mission in the Libyan city, which left the ambassador and three colleagues dead, the White House, CIA and State Department have been accused of mishandling their response. One claim investigated was that the Central Intelligence Agency had not provided adequate security for its own agents at an annex near the diplomatic mission, and Washington had failed to send support.
