    A report finding management failures are to blame for a lack of security at the U.S. mission in Benghazi, Libya, resulted in the resignation of four State Department officials Wednesday. The security before the attack that left four dead, including Ambassador Christopher Stevens, was called “grossly inadequate” by the board’s co-chairman.
