Inquiry into Benghazi consulate attack clears US response

  • A probe into the attack on the American consulate in Benghazi has given a clean chit to the Obama administration’s response to the sudden crisis in 2012, media reports say.

    The investigation, which was led by the intelligence committee of the Republican-run House, also stated that there was no delay in deploying a CIA rescue unit and no failure of intelligence. 

    Christopher Stevens, the then US ambassador to Libya, and three other Americans died in the assault carried out by militants.
