According to a report compiled by the Senate Homeland Security Committee, the security situation in Benghazi, Libya in the months leading up to the 9-11-12 attack was “flashing red,” but the US State Department failed to respond adequately. That attack resulted in the deaths of four Americans, including Ambassador Christopher Stevens.

The Senate report noted the “large amount of evidence” in the months preceding the attack that Benghazi was “increasingly dangerous and unstable,” with an attack on Americans becoming “much more likely.”

“While this intelligence was effectively shared within the Intelligence Community (IC) and with key officials at the Department of State, it did not lead to a commensurate increase in security at Benghazi nor to a decision to close the American mission there, either of which would have been more than justified by the intelligence presented,” the report said.
