The US State Department And The Benghazi Attack
I’m giving the podcast thing another try. The audio isn’t perfect yet but it’s better than last time.
I spoke with Robert Caruso (@robertcaruso), he’s worked on physical, operational and crypological issues while serving in the Navy and in the Office of the Secretary of Defense. He’s also worked for the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction (SIGAR), the office charged with preventing and uncovering waste, fraud and abuse in US reconstruction programs across Afghanistan. Robert has also consulted with the State Department on matters of diplomatic security.
The interview focuses on how an attack like this could happen and the role the culture and structure of the State Department may have played in the multiple failures leading up to the tragic death of four Americans on September 11, 2012 in Benghazi Libya.
Also note that interview was conducted on Wednesday afternoon before today’s revelations.
