CIA's Benghazi Talking Points Face Congressional Scrutiny

Amid ongoing criticism from Republicans over comments U.N. ambassador Susan Rice made about recent violence in Benghazi, Libya, Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., called for an investigation into a set of talking points the CIA gave out to Rice and others following the attacks, which she said would help clear up discrepancies between what intelligence leaders knew about the attack and what U.S. officials were being instructed to divulge publicly.

Feinstein, speaking Sunday on NBC's "Meet the Press," defended Rice against the accusations that she had deliberately misled the American people - as Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., has previously suggested -- and decried what she called the "politicization of a public statement that was put out by the entire intelligence committee."
