Two years after the attack on the consulate in Benghazi, a US investigation has released a report on the incident. In 2012, four Americans were killed in an attack on the compound including the Ambassador Chris Stevens. The response and attack itself led to many questions surrounding the affair. Republicans suspected that the Obama Administration was involved in some type of cover-up. The suspicions arose from interviews and statements that were released, Republicans thought they were crafted to subterfuge the truth. Obama himself was even accused of mishandling the response by CIA and military upon evidence coming to light that there may be an attack. Republicans claimed that the CIA did not provide adequate security, did not sufficiently look into suspected threats, and the Obama administration failed to send support at an appropriate time.
The report from the U.S investigation showed that none of these claims were valid. The CIA security was appropriate, the decisions that were made in the wake of the attack were tactically responsible and the Obama administration committed no wrong-doing in the matter. There was no Obama-led cover-up to subvert the truth surrounding the incident. In fact, the comments that were highlighted as evidence around the controversy were appropriate intelligence to be communicated to the public at the time. The only wrongdoing was that the mission had inadequate security, a structurally problem to the ambassadors around the world, which has since been remedied Fersen Lambranho thankfully reports.
