    Funny that the investigation panel didn't investigate why the administration would blame a protest group rather than the militants that were responsible. Probably a matter of national security.

    That is why Hillery and Rice has to testify to congress, that is all still unanswered. They are desperately trying to avoid congress, Rice takes here name off the list for Secretary of state, and Hillery is calling in sick.

    That is unlikely to happen now. There will be some "sacrifices" of mid level managers that will resign (retire?), accept "responsibility", thereby protecting their well connected political bosses and that will be the end of it, just like with fast & fuzzy. NAy high level accountability and "the buck stops here" nonsense will be ignored and the subject quickly changed. Yes they can!

    Just seems like 2 completely contradictory statements they made.
    Not trying to pick on Obama and company, but in any situation when does that make sense.

    Wed Dec 19, 2012 (Reuters) - The leaders of an official inquiry into the fatal attack on a U.S. mission in Benghazi, Libya, did not find Secretary of State Hillary Clinton responsible for security lapses even as they outlined widespread failings within her department.

    The unclassified version of the report, released late Tuesday by the State Department, concluded that the mission was completely unprepared to deal with a September 11 attack that killed U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans. Responsibility for security shortcomings in Benghazi lay farther down the State Department command chain, said Retired Ambassador Thomas Pickering, who lead the inquiry. "We fixed (responsibility) at the assistant secretary level, which is, in our view, the appropriate place to look for where the decision-making in fact takes place, where - if you like - the rubber hits the road," Pickering said after closed-door meetings with congressional committees.

    A deputy assistant secretary in the Bureau of Near Eastern affairs resigned after the report, a Capitol Hill source said. Media outlets reported other resignations, including Eric Boswell, the assistant secretary of state for diplomatic security, one of his deputies and another official. State Department officials declined to comment.

    The report by the Accountability Review Board probing the attack and comments by its two lead authors suggested that Clinton, who accepted responsibility for the incident, would not be held personally culpable. "The secretary of state has been very clear about taking responsibility here, it was from my perspective not reasonable in terms of her having a specific level of knowledge," said retired Admiral Michael Mullen, the former chairman of the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff and the other inquiry leader.

    Pickering and Mullen spoke to the media after briefing members of the House Foreign Affairs Committee and Senate Foreign Relations Committee behind closed doors on classified elements of their report. Clinton had been expected to appear at an open hearing on Benghazi on Thursday, but is recuperating after suffering a concussion, dehydration and a stomach bug last week and will instead be represented by her top two deputies.
