Scandal: A congressional report shows security cuts before  the Benghazi attack were approved by the secretary of state and that White House  talking points describing the events were edited to protect the State  Department.

The "progress" report by House Republicans will no doubt be dismissed as a  partisan political document. But it effectively records administration efforts  to ignore the threat of terrorism before the attack on our diplomatic mission in  Benghazi, to cover up administration culpability afterward and to sweep aside  responsibility for the deaths of four Americans to make the administration look  caring and competent.

Despite then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's denials that pleadings from  Ambassador Chris Stevens, killed in the terrorist attack, never reached her  desk, the interim Benghazi report concludes that:

"Reductions of security levels prior to the attacks in Benghazi were approved  at the highest levels of the State Department, up to and including Secretary  Clinton. This fact contradicts her testimony before the House Foreign Affairs  Committee on January 23, 2013."

Indeed it does. On that date, Clinton testified:

"I have made it very clear that the security cables did not come to my  attention or above the assistant secretary level where the ARB (Accountability  Review Board) placed responsibility."

The 46-page report by the five committees of jurisdiction cites an April 19,  2012, cable bearing Clinton's signature acknowledging a formal request dated  March 28, 2012, from then-U.S. Ambassador to Libya Gene Cretz for additional  security assets but ordering the withdrawal of security elements to proceed as  planned.
