State Department audit says review of Benghazi not biased


An audit conducted by the State Department has declared an investigation into the fatal attack on the United States embassy in Benghazi, Libya, "without bias," despite Republican legislators' claims it lacked independence.

The audit, carried out by the department's inspector general, backs up the review chaired by former Joint Chiefs Chairman Adm. Mike Mullen and former Ambassador Thomas Pickering. However, the assessment also criticized the department for its risk management and not fully implementing security recommendations after previous attacks on embassies and consulates.

Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans were killed in the attack on September 11, 2012. The assessment says progress has been made since then.
