Benghazi attack Flip Flop

While Americans and others were remembering 911 victims, another tragedy took place in Benghazi, Libya.  USA Ambassador Christopher Stevens and his entourage were bombarded by militants.  They did not survive.  

At first, the White House placed blamed on a YouTube video "The Innocence of Muslims" which is a parody of the prophet Muhammad.  Violent anti-American protests began spiraling out of control.

After close examination, the White House changed its story and is now blaming it on a planned terrorist attack which was to coincide with the 11th anniversary of 911.

Which one is it?  An attack in retaliation for the YouTube video or a planned terrorist attack?

This is troubling indeed and shows how out of touch Obama's administration is in regards to foreign policy.  To add to the drama, CNN apparently had in its possession Ambassador Stevens' journal which it used as a source prior to returning it to his family.  Why wasn't this journal left alone or at least given to the CIA?  Shame on CNN.

Muslims who are now violently protesting most likely were not aware of the YouTube video until the White House mentioned it.  If this is the case, then the Obama administration has a lot of blood on its hands.

These people are rioting, killing one another and destroying property all because of a video that was promoted inadvertently by the Obama administration - or was it?  

Congress needs to launch an investigation.
