Benghazi Attack “Preventable?” Well, Duh.

A new US Senate Intelligence Committee report says that the 2012 Benghazi attacks were “preventable.”

The bipartisan report lays out more than a dozen findings regarding the assaults on Sept. 11 and 12, 2012 on the diplomatic compound and a CIA annex in the Libyan city of Benghazi. It says the State Department failed to increase security at the sites despite warnings, and faults intelligence agencies for not sharing information about the existence of the CIA outpost with the U.S. military.

“The attacks were preventable, based on extensive intelligence reporting on the terrorist activity in Libya—to include prior threats and attacks against Western targets—and given the known security shortfalls at the U.S. Mission,” the panel said in a statement.

We needed the US Senate to tell us that? And how much did it cost to put together this “report?” Heck, the attacks could have been prevented by:

a) Not intervening to assist in the overthrow of Libya’s previous government; and

b) Not installing a consulate and secret CIA station smack in the middle of the turmoil caused by (a).

No charge.
