A year after Benghazi, State Department hopes to expand security training

The Diplomatic Security Training Center trains all diplomatic security agents, as well as foreign service officers heading to high-threat posts. But the facility is only an interim one, built in 2007 to augment previous training sites that the Government Accountability Office called “inadequate” and said posed a “critical challenge” to training. Today, the State Department says the temporary center decreases productivity, interrupts scheduling and increases costs. That’s why the department hopes the site won’t be its permanent home.
