People would still (many do) believe that the 9/11 consulate attack in Benghazi was the result of outrage over a youtube video IF some on the inside had not leaked the truth, or at least some of it. There was no threat to the national security in that case, it was a presidency trying to win an election by rewriting the truth.
That is FOX vomit.
As it stands, there was a minor protest that terrorists took advantage of. The State Department and the Admin. did deliberately downplay Al Qaeda involvement while operatives were out trying to round up those responsible. The Moron Issa and the rest of the GOP in Congress and the FOX idiots blew a collective load trying to seize an opportunity to make Obama look weak and cost him the election, they failed but within their failure they created a massive problem. The risked National Security to play politics and the CIA slapped Romney down, unfortunately the rest of the morons kept blabbering away. Now that Petraeus has testified, notice them all shutting up? This new POLICY is a direct result of GOP retardation.
