State Department Official Who “Resigned” After Benghazi Report Will Stay on Payroll

Last week three top State Department officials reportedly resigned after the release of the Benghazi investigation.


Not true.

They just took a little time off.

The State Department official who “resigned” after the release of the Benghazi report is just switching desks. Three other officials who “resigned”, including Charlene Lamb, are expected to return to the State Department.
FOX News reported:

A State Department security chief who was said to have resigned last week after the release of a scathing report about security lapses at the U.S. consulate in Benghazi in the run-up to the terror attack that killed four Americans reportedly is still on the department’s payroll.

The New York Post reports that Eric Boswell, the assistant secretary of state for diplomatic security, has not resigned from the department, as a State Department spokeswoman indicated Dec. 19. Boswell is instead just “switching desks,” according to the report.

Three other State Department officials, including Charlene Lamb, the deputy assistant secretary responsible for embassy security, were placed on administrative leave after the release of the report. However, according to the Post they are expected to return.

The State Department-ordered investigation of the attack found that “systemic failures” had left the consulate facility in Libya inadequately protected.

Don’t expect this to get much play in the liberal media.

    Isn’t Lamb the one who accidentally told the truth in public that one time? I’m surprised she wasn’t disappeared long ago.

    With the holidays, and such a weak job market we all can understand why they would stay. I mean the priivate sector only pays half as the goverment payroll. Surely the evil guns that did this are in Mexico by now.

    So, the “most transparent administration in history” has chosen to compound the Benghazi affair by lying to the American People . . . . .

    How am I not surprised by this?

    Being a high level operative in the State Department means you have access to US Passport files. Everybody at this guy’s level and above keeps a personal copy of Barack’s passport files in a secret safe someplace which show he’s not a US Citizen, so they can use it as a bargaining chip in case they’re asked to take a fall for somebody higher up on the food chain, like Secretary of State Hillary Clinton or UN Ambassador Susan Rice.

    The backroom discussion goes something like this: “Look, if you fire me or if I turn up dead with a gunshot wound to the back of my head while sitting in my car, then a manilla envelope containing Barack’s passport files gets automatically delivered to Fox News. And when his house of cards collapses YOU WILL go down with it. NOW BACK OFF!!”

    So, the scapegoats continue to get their fodder after all…I suppose I can look forward to the criminal, Eric Holder, to royally “retire” on our dime like all the other treasury rapists as well. Who says crime doesn’t pay? Teapot Dome has moved into 2nd place.

    Just like watching a three-card monte hustler try and run government.

    Same thing happened in obama/Holder’s Fast & Furious gun running scandal. A few people switched desks and the problem apparently went away, because you don’t hear any more about it.

    I hope the family of Ambassador Stevens and the other three families involved will appreciated the gesture.

    Because that’s all they’re going to get is a gesture.

    Sounds like lies and fraud to me.

    someone at a very high level in the white house or state department spends a lot of time on youtube. When you google benghazi and mccain, you get a youtube video that shows mccain saying that they will either show a coverup or incompetence. Well, given that choice, the powers that be opted for incompetence, and gave three state department workers a paid vacation and the other a position elsewhere, probably less work and more money/benefits. The Obama administration knows how to make their workers “play along”…and its obvious….

    As long as people like Lamb and Forest are put in such positions the manure will continue to ooze from the state department. I have LONG thought that it was MMMMMMSSSSSSS. Lamb who illegally ordered the military to stand down. She HAS NO MILITARY AUTHORITY WHATSOEVER, yet it all points to her trying to do her thing of PRETENDING TO BE” IMPOOOOORRRRRTANT”. I am convinced that it was also MMMMSSSSSS. Lamb who refused the repeated requests for more security. You don’t need a Phd to see through her,or Forest’s sort of crap. You only need to look into their faces…………it tells it all.

  • cavt

    These people are lying scum which is typical. I wonder what % of govt employees are still ethical.

  • oldsailor80

    Everybody knows that with this alleged administration even murder is ok so long as it achieves the intended end. These sorry excuses for humans could not care less. Chicago type of politics= AOK.
