One of the most puzzling things about the Obama’s administration’s Benghazi story is how it could have taken them so long to realize what was clear on the very first day: that it was a deliberate terrorist attack. Well, we now know that they knew it on the first day as well.
The CIA linked the 9/11/2012 attack to terrorists in the first 24 hours, and conveyed that information to Congress on September 13. In fact, they knew that an Al Qaeda affiliate had taken responsibility for the attack after just two hours, while the battle was still ongoing.
But the administration changed its story on September 14, and spent most of the next month blaming a video. Why?
