Unclassified talking points used by Rice:

-- The currently available information suggests that the demonstrations in Benghazi were spontaneously inspired by the protests at the US Embassy in Cairo and evolved into a direct assault against the U.S. diplomatic post in Benghazi and subsequently its annex. There are indications that extremists participated in the violent demonstrations.

-- This assessment may change as additional information is collected and analyzed and as currently available information continues to be evaluated.

-- The investigation is ongoing, and the U.S. government is working with Libyan authorities to bring to justice those responsible for the deaths of U.S. citizens.

Yet the blame game continues:

But the committee's senior Republican, Saxby Chambliss of Georgia, said he doesn't think the issue is settled.

He said the concern is not whether the talking points were correct, but that Rice didn't go far enough.

"She knew at that point and time that al Qaeda was very likely responsible in part or in whole for the death of Ambassador Stevens," he said, intimating that Rice should have said that.
Chambliss is wrong. al Qaeda has never been directly implicated in the attack. The group responsible may have some ties to al Qaeda, but that is vastly different than saying al Qaeda itself was involved. How come those out for blood aren't after him for saying so? Because it doesn't fit their agenda, of course. Such behavior from those on the committee responsible for getting to the truth of the matter is beyond belief. And they still get away with it.
