    An independent panel charged with investigating the deadly Sept. 11 attack in Libya that killed a U.S. ambassador and three other Americans has concluded that systematic management and leadership failures at the State Department led to "grossly" inadequate security at the mission in Benghazi.

    "Systematic failures and leadership and management deficiencies at senior levels within two bureaus of the State Department resulted in a Special Mission security posture that was inadequate for Benghazi and grossly inadequate to deal with the attack that took place," the panel said.

    Even as an independent review, it stops short of recommending discipline. People died here!

    Also, the blame stopped on that side of the ocean. A bit too convenient.

    " In the immediate aftermath, administration officials linked the attack to the spreading protests over an American-made, anti-Islamic film that had begun in Cairo earlier that day. "

    Who? Based on what? Why did Obama and his surrogates continue for weeks to push the demonstration over a video story, when they had to know it wasn't true? And why didn't the media press for answers about this?

    It's very hard not to conclude that political motivations were behind the words and actions coming from the Obama admin in the weeks that followed the attack. It's very hard not to conclude that the truth was hidden from us until after the election was over. And it's hard to understand why most Americans are not pissed about being deceived.

    No accountability by this admin. To be expected by his admin along with total ineptitude.

    Let's honor the dead by sweeping the whole thing under the rug.

    So anyways, to move forward we need a plan. What kind of security would you like at our embassies? We need cost, manpower and equipment totals. No more blame game. How about ideas to get better.

    Just like the republican president that had an ambassador killed on his watch in 1988?
