The scathing report faults the US State Department for failing to provide security in light of mounting threats leading up to the assault. The report says the facility was woefully under-protected at a time when the region, according to a top department official, was 'flashing red' yet, security was not improved and there was no recommendation to close the compound. The report also placed fault with the White House and the Pentagon. AFP PHOTO/Paul J. Richards (Photo credit should read PAUL J. RICHARDS/AFP/Getty Images)
