What Really Happened in Benghazi?

It's a big day here at The Daily Beast/Newsweek when the New York Times publishes a story whose sole purpose seems to be to push back against Eli Lake's reporting.

To Libyans who witnessed the assault and know the attackers, there is little doubt what occurred: a well-known group of local Islamist militants struck without any warning or protest, and they did it in retaliation for the video.

Of course, that's not what the Director of National Intelligence reported. I expect we'll hear more tonight.
