Conflicting Reports on Benghazi Attack Leave Many Asking Who Changed the CIA Talking Points and Why?

There is conflicting information coming out of the hearings on the attack in Benghazi, Libya that killed four Americans. The CIA talking points that Ambassador Susan Rice used when she appeared on Sunday talk shows were reportedly altered so that mention of terrorists was taken out.

He said the one fact that’s now agreed upon by Democrats and Republicans is that “the intelligence community had given a report, an assessment, on [September] 14th that said it was a preplanned attack; and when Susan Rice

spoke on the 16th it all of a sudden had become a riot out of control.”

He came to the conclusion that between the intelligence assessment on the 14th and the 16th, someone changed the talking points. That leaves the following questions: who changed it, why, and was it changed to protect the Obama administration during an election?
