Former CIA Deputy Director Michael Morell said in the aftermath of the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya he believed that it was a terrorist attack along with a protest.

“So I believed what my analysts said that there was a protest. I also believed it to be a terrorist attack, we never saw those two things to be mutually exclusive. So, I believed both of those at the same time,” Morell said before the House Intelligence Committee Wednesday.
