U.S. Benghazi compound lease renewed without security:

The State Department renewed the lease for the U.S. compound in Benghazi two months before the Sept. 11, 2012 terrorist attacks without requiring the facility to meet normal security standards.

..According to the Accountability Review Board (ARB) that investigated security shortfalls…Benghazi’s security was “far short” of standards from the start in November 2011 and “remained so even in September 2012, despite multiple field-expedient upgrades funded by diplomatic security.”

The lease renewal came shortly after a June 2012 assault in which an improvised explosive device blew a giant hole in the exterior wall of the facility…State Department’s Regional Security Officer for Libya asked for stronger security for the compound in August 2012 but it was denied.

..Four Americans including U.S. ambassador Christopher Stevens were murdered in the terrorist attacks…The witness said the attackers carried a banner that was later identified to represent the radical Islamist group Ansar al-Sharia.
