Three Resign at State Department

Three people resigned from the U.S. State Department on Wednesday, one day after an independent panel found serious security flaws at the embassy in Benghazi prior to the Sept. 11 attack that killed the U.S. ambassador and three other Americans. According to an administration official, the Assistant Secretary of State for Diplomatic Security Eric Boswell, Deputy Assistant Secretary responsible for embassy security Charlene Lamb, and an unnamed official in the Bureau of Near East Affairs stepped down after the report found that poor leadership had led to the breakdown of security.
