America Rising released a document highlighting key points from a bipartisan Senate Select Committee on Intelligence report that focuses its criticism over the Benghazi attack in 2012 on Hillary Clinton’s State Department.

America Rising cites five take aways from the Senate report: 

The State Department ignored or rejected requests for more security from its own ambassador.

The State Department’s failure to heed security warnings, as the CIA did, contributed to "breakdown" during attack.

The intelligence community provided numerous stark warnings of the terrorist threat in Benghazi in the months leading up to the attack.

State Department knew that security "tripwires" that mandated more security or closing down the facility had been closed; failed to act.

State Department’s lack of intelligence analysis post-attack shows "unsettling" lack of concern.
