State Department Official Who “Resigned” After Benghazi Report Will Stay on Payroll
Last week three top State Department officials reportedly resigned after the release of the Benghazi investigation.
They just took a little time off.
The State Department official who “resigned” after the release of the Benghazi report is just switching desks. Three other officials who “resigned”, including Charlene Lamb, are expected to return to the State Department.
FOX News reported:
A State Department security chief who was said to have resigned last week after the release of a scathing report about security lapses at the U.S. consulate in Benghazi in the run-up to the terror attack that killed four Americans reportedly is still on the department’s payroll.
The New York Post reports that Eric Boswell, the assistant secretary of state for diplomatic security, has not resigned from the department, as a State Department spokeswoman indicated Dec. 19. Boswell is instead just “switching desks,” according to the report.
Three other State Department officials, including Charlene Lamb, the deputy assistant secretary responsible for embassy security, were placed on administrative leave after the release of the report. However, according to the Post they are expected to return.
The State Department-ordered investigation of the attack found that “systemic failures” had left the consulate facility in Libya inadequately protected.
Don’t expect this to get much play in the liberal media.
