Critics Cite Communications Failure in Libya Attack

Ad Feedback

The State Department failed to send a rapid response team to help investigate the attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, according to Fox News.

The Foreign Emergency Support Team is a combination of State Department, CIA, and military resources deployed to assist investigations of terror attacks.

The team was sent in after the USS Cole bombing and the attacks on U.S. embassies in Kenya and Tanzania.

Counter-terrorism officials told Fox News that the team could have helped the FBI gain access to the site sooner than the 24 days it eventually took.

Critics said it's is one more failing in the Obama administration's response to the attack.

The news comes after fresh revelations that the U.S. mission in Benghazi warned the State Department that the U.S. Consulate could not defend itself against a coordinated attack.
