The White House's Battle Against Truth in Benghazi

One more installment in the epic battle: Eli Lake vs. Obama administration department of Libya disinformation.

Video footage from the United States consulate in Benghazi, Libya, taken the night of the Sept. 11 anniversary attacks, shows an organized group of armed men attacking the compound, according to two U.S. intelligence officials who have seen the footage and are involved in the ongoing investigation. The footage, which was recovered from the site last week by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, offers some of the most tangible evidence yet that a military-style assault took place, according to these officials.

It's worth considering that if UN Ambassador Susan Rice had said to a congressional committee what she said to five television programs, she would almost certainly have to resign her job.
