State Department Hasn't Ruled Out Role of Anti-Islam Clip in Libya Strike


Video embedded below.

"The State Department has not ruled out the possibility that the deadly terrorist attacks on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, were motivated by an anti-Islamic video, despite a growing chorus of criticism over the Obama administration's initial claims that the violence was a "spontaneous" outgrowth of a protest over the video.
Republicans -- from Capitol Hill lawmakers to Mitt Romney -- have blasted Obama administration officials for repeatedly citing the crudely made video, which was produced in the United States and posted online months ago. Susan Rice, the U.S. ambassador to the U.N., in particular has taken heat for saying on five different networks' Sunday shows five days after the attacks that it was a "spontaneous" event that grew out of the protests of the video that have swept the region.
