State Dept. Employee who Denied Security in Benghazi Promoted

Via Frontpagemag:

That seems entirely reasonable and fair. If Hillary is supposed to get the White House, why not make Charlene Lamb a Regional Security Officer?

At the Congressional hearing, Charlene Lamb stated that she would not have approved more security for Benghazi and said, “we had the correct number of assets in Benghazi at the time of 9/11 for what had been agreed upon.”

That conclusion was shot down by the first friendly insider “protect Hillary” report and the second more serious Senate report. Lamb also refused to describe Benghazi as a terrorist attack.

Eric Nordstrom, the regional security officer, blamed Lamb directly in his testimony.

In that interview, Nordstrom said he sent two cables to State Department headquarters in March 2012 and July 2012 requesting additional diplomatic security agents for Benghazi, but he received no responses.

He stated that Charlene Lamb, the deputy assistant secretary for international programs, wanted to keep the number of U.S. security personnel in Benghazi artificially low. He said Lamb believed the Benghazi facilities did not need any diplomatic security special agents because there was a residential safe haven to fall back to in an emergency.

So obviously the thing to do is to move Lamb up the ladder.

Charlene Lamb, cited for failures in leadership from the Department of State’s own Accountability Review Board report, has been promoted to Regional Security Officer. We’ve heard rumor that she’s slated for international duty in Canada. She started the security officer training last week, much to the dismay of many within the State Department.

She currently holds the rank of MC (Minister Counselor) or the equivalent of a  2-star and is taking a full colonel position. This is usually reserved for people with hardship issues as State is an up-or-out organization.

Rank and file are [upset]and as one put to me, “it shows that as long as you play by the rules with the black dragons you can actually get someone killed and be rewarded”.

She refuses to leave DS (Diplomatic Security) as she has kids in college and is radioactive. No one in the private sector will give them (the DS 3) a look and [no one came] to the rescue with a willing patsy to take her off states hand with a $200k job.
