The U.S. Department of State released an unclassified report Tuesday (Dec. 18) about the September terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya, stating “systematic failures” in security. The review disclosed many of the main reasons for the faulty resources and security, which resulted in the death of four Americans, including U.S. Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens.
