- The House Intelligence Committee has issued its final report investigating the attacks on US officials in Benghazi, Libya, on September 11, 2012, and September 12, 2012.
- The report concludes that "the CIA ensured sufficient security for CIA facilities … and, without a requirement to do so, ably and bravely assisted the State Department on the night of the attacks … Appropriate US personnel made reasonable tactical decisions that night, and the Committee found no evidence that there was either a stand down order or a denial of available air support."
- It also claims there was "no intelligence failure prior to the attacks."
- The report defends then-UN Ambassador Susan Rice by concluding that her comments on September 16 attributing the attacks to a protest came before the CIA concluded there was no protest.
- There is no evidence, the report states, that any officers were "intimidated, wrongly forced to sign a nondisclosure agreement or otherwise kept from speaking to Congress."
- It backs up six previous investigations into the attacks; the United States House Select Committee on Events Surrounding the 2012 Terrorist Attack in Benghazi has yet to issue its report.
