WASHINGTON - A disgraced state department official who oversaw security decisions at the U.S. consulate in Benghazi at the time of a deadly terrorist attack may be posted to Canada, according to a report.
Charlene Lamb was among four state department security officials disciplined following a scathing review into the Sept. 11, 2012, attack on the embassy in Benghazi, Libya.
Four Americans, including Ambassador Chris Stevens, were killed in the attack.
Lamb was placed on administrative leave from her position as deputy assistant secretary for international programs in December 2012 after a sharply critical independent inquiry into the attacks.
The inquiry cited several problems, noting "systemic failures and leadership and management deficiencies at senior levels within two bureaus of the state department resulted in a special mission security posture that was inadequate for Benghazi and grossly inadequate to deal with the attack that took place."
