Benghazi Review Faults State Department

"The leaders of an independent panel that blamed systematic State Department management and leadership failures for gross security lapses in the deadly Sept. 11 attack on a U.S. diplomatic mission in Libya will explain their findings to Congress on Wednesday," the AP reports.

In a letter that accompanied the transmission of the report to Capitol Hill, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton "thanked the board for its 'clear-eyed, serious look at serious systemic challenges' and said she accepted all of its 29 recommendations to improve security at high-threat embassies and consulates."

Clinton was supposed to testify on Benghazi today, but will not appear due to a concussion suffered after fainting from a stomach flu over the weekend. Charles Krauthammer says Clinton instead "seems to have a severe Benghazi allergy."
