US Officials Offer Differing Explanations of Libyan Attack

Doesn't sound like anybody actually believes the spontaneous riot theory White House spokesman Jay Carney put out


A spokesman for President Barack Obama said on Friday officials had no evidence the attack that killed the U.S. ambassador to Libya was pre-planned, an assertion which added to confusion over the incident.

Immediately after the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, on Tuesday night, U.S. officials, speaking on condition of anonymity, were quoted widely in the media saying they believed the attack was well-planned and organized.
