Just broadcast on ABC News. The State Department is admitting the truth in advance of their congressional testimony tomorrow. Jonathan Karl reports they are now saying there was never any protest in Benghazi, instead it was an unprecedented attack on an American mission. In other words (Karl didn’t say this but I am) the President lied to America.

UPDATE: The AP has added their report:
take our poll - story continues below
The State Department
said Tuesday it never concluded that the consulate attack in Libya
stemmed from protests over an American-made video ridiculing Islam,
raising further questions about why the Obama administration used that
explanation for more than a week after assailants killed the U.S.
ambassador and three other Americans.
The revelation came as new
documents suggested internal disagreement over appropriate levels of
security before the attack, which occurred on the 11th anniversary of
the Sept. 11 terror attacks on the U.S…
But asked about the
administration’s initial – and since retracted – explanation linking the
violence to protests over an anti-Muslim video circulating on the
Internet, one official said, “That was not our conclusion.” He called it
a question for “others” to answer, without specifying.
So if the State Department said there was never was a protest, and the intelligence community says there never was a protest…where did that story about the attack being caused by a protest about a you tube video getting out of control come from?
