Petraeus testifies about Benghazi

Reuters, WASHINGTON

In five Sunday talk-show appearances on Sept. 16, Rice said the assault was prompted by an anti-Muslim video and then developed into a more violent act, but she also told CBS’ Face the Nation that day that it was “clear that there were extremist elements that joined in and escalated the violence.”

US Senator Saxby Chambliss, the intelligence committee’s top Republican, told reporters the problem with Rice’s talk show appearances was that she did not stick with the talking points she was given on the Benghazi attack.

“She knew at that point in time that al-Qaeda was very likely responsible in part or in whole for the death of ambassador Stevens,” he said.
