Securing U.S. Diplomatic Facilities and Personnel Abroad: Background and Policy Issues
Alex Tiersky (au); Susan B. Epstein (au)
The deaths of Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other U.S. personnel in Benghazi, Libya, on September 11, 2012, along with attacks on U.S. embassies in Egypt, Sudan, Tunisia, and Yemen, have drawn renewed attention to the challenges facing U.S. diplomats abroad, as well as to the difficulty in balancing concerns for their security against the outreach required of their mission. Congress plays a key role in shaping the response to these challenges, such as by providing resources for diplomatic security and examining security breaches overseas. The inability to provide perfect security, especially against the evident threat of mob violence, has focused particular scrutiny on the deployment of diplomatic personnel in high-threat environments. The Dept. of State currently maintains a presence in locations faced with security conditions that previously would likely have led State to evacuate personnel and close the post. Contents of this report: Introduction; Host Nation Responsibility Under the Vienna Conventions; U.S. Responsibilities and Posture; Physical Security at U.S. Diplomatic Facilities; Incident Response; Oversight and Funding. Table. This is a print on demand report.
