Grabien Exclusive: 'Seven Times the Administration Blamed Benghazi on a Video'
Grabien takes a quick look back at the days and weeks following the attacks on our consulate on September 11th, 2012

As newly disclosed e-mails reveal the White House orchestrated officials' response to the Benghazi terrorist attack, Press Secretary Jay Carney is defending the administration's initial PR push, insisting these talking points were based off "the best intelligence available."

Even that kind of equivocation suggests the intelligence at the time was less than, to borrow from George Tenet, a "slam dunk."

But did White House officials reference the video as simply a leading theory?

In fact, as Grabien's latest montage shows, administration officials confidently blamed the video from the outset. Notice the total lack of uncertainty or mere mention of other possible causes.

It was the video. Case closed.
