On Wednesday three different officials resigned from the State Department after Tuesday night's damning report.
Who resigned? The Assistant Secretary of State for Diplomatic Security Eric Boswell, the Deputy Assistant Secretary responsible for embassy security Charlene Lamb, and an official from the Bureau of Near East Affairs who hasn't been publicly named.
Lamb and Boswell were apparently name-checked in the classified version of the report. In the unclassified report, leaders in two bureaus – the Bureaus of Diplomatic Security and NE Affairs – were condemned because they "demonstrated a lack of proactive leadership and management ability."
But as we mentioned yesterday, the report didn't recommend any disciplinary action for particular officials. No one individual "engaged in misconduct or willfully ignored his or her responsibilities [or] breached his or her duty."
The report's harshest criticism was reserved for the Libyan militias who were charged with protecting the embassy from attack. The Americans on the ground - the CIA and diplomatic security staff - received praise for doing "their best with what they had."
