No they didn't. Just another Fox commentary lie.CIA & Obama staff knew there was no protest in Benghazi within 24 hours.
No cover up here folks!
Just another phony scandal!
As late as September 15, 2012, "the Deputy Director of the Middle East and North Africa Analysis Office at CIA wrote an internal email that mentioned "protestors that preceded the violence."
It wasn't until September 18th that the CIA and FBI "reviewed the closed circuit television video from the Mission facility that showed there were no protests prior to the attacks. Although information gathered from interviews with U.S. personnel who were on the ground during the attacks was shared informally between the FBI and CIA, it was not until two days later, on September 20, 2012, that the FBI disseminated its intelligence reports detailing such interviews."
According to the Senate report, "as a result of evidence from closed circuit videos and other reports, the Intelligence Community "changed its assessment about a protest in classified intelligence reports on September 24, 2012, to state there were no demonstrations or protests at the Temporary Mission Facility prior to the attacks. This slow change is to blame on the official assessment of government officials, who continued to state in press interviews that there were protests outside the Mission compound."
