According to Patraeus he knew "almost immeidately" after the attack that it was tied to Al-Queada.

So lets re-cap. There was no protest or any proof of a protest from the people on the ground. The State department never felt this had anything to do with a video. The talking points were editted to play down terrorism. Petraeus doesn't know where Susan got her information. It's clear the video had nothing to do with this and the key plays knew "almost immediately" it was a terrorist attack.
None of that says the State Department never thought the attack was linked with a protest, as you claim.
