At least two parents of men killed in Benghazi have said Hillary Clinton told them personally that spontaneous anger over the video was the reason for the attack. According to a GOP congressman, Hillary got testy with anybody who tried to make her a liar:

An Illinois Republican congressman told constituents at a town hall meeting on Wednesday that then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton screamed at a fellow member of Congress two days after a U.S. diplomatic station in Benghazi, Libya was destroyed, merely for saying aloud that the attack was carried out by terrorist groups.

The Obama administration later acknowledged that reality.

But White House officials initially maintained that the deaths of four Americans and the firebomb attack on the State Department mission was the result of a spontaneous protest against a low-budget YouTube film that was critical of the Muslim prophet Muhammad.

‘Two days after this attack,’ said Rep. Adam Kinzinger, ‘we were in a briefing with Hillary Clinton and she screamed at a member of Congress who’d dare suggest that this was a terrorist attack.’

That description of Sudden Talking Point Deviation Outburst Syndrome doesn’t seem hard to believe considering this was still Hillary’s demeanor over four months after the attack:

And of course, Susan Rice, who was at the time the U.S. ambassador to the U.N., was still out pushing the video story five days after the attack. That kind of steadfast loyalty to issued talking points earned Rice a promotion to national security adviser.
