(KCEN) -- In Washington lawmakers took a closer look at the investigation into the Benghazi consulate attack.
A senior State Department official says the level of security staffing was correct.
Republicans at the House hearing said the Obama State Department showed a lack of concern last summer.
And one of the witnesses agreed.
Lieutenant Colonel Andrew Wood ran embassy security till August.
Wood said, "The situation remained uncertain and reports from some Libyans indicated it was getting worse."
Just five U.S. agents protected the main U.S. compound.
Staffers recommended more.
The State Department now says two U.S. compounds were hit that night, one by a mortar that killed Navy seals who tried to save the Ambassador.
