Catherine Herridge and Greta Van Susteren commented on the unclassified version of the Accountability Review Board’s report released late Tuesday evening. An independent panel has concluded that “systemic failures and leadership and management deficiencies at senior levels” in the State Department were what led to the violent deaths of Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans in Libya on Sept. 11.
The report, ordered by the State Department, is “weak” and “bland,” Van Susteren said. The quotes included in the 39 page document posted on the US Department of State website, make it “read like some sort of literary journal,” she said.
Herridge pointed out the report, in addition to the eight page response letter from Secretary of State Clinton, was “vanilla” and did not hold anyone responsible for the attacks and deaths in Benghazi. No names were named and no disciplinary action will be taken.
Clinton does begin her letter by saying, “The State Department family includes nearly 70,000 men and women . . . I am responsible for every one of them.” She continues by describing proposed changes and steps that have already been taken to improve safety conditions.
