The official said Eric Boswell, the assistant secretary of state for diplomatic security, and Charlene Lamb, the deputy assistant secretary responsible for embassy security, stepped down under pressure after the release of the report.

The report said poor leadership in both bureaus left the Benghazi mission underprotected.
