Was Benghazi Attack Planned? Libya Says Yes, US Says No

•, by Jason Ditz
 In the wake of Tuesday’s Benghazi Consulate attack, US officials marveled at the complexity of the attack, saying the attackers were “well-armed and seemingly well-informed” before launching the multi-hour siege on the consulate, killing the US Ambassador and several others.
That was the story, but now officials are telling something completely different, with US Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice calling the attack “spontaneous” and saying that the attackers were trying to “replicate” what happened in Cairo.

Which is odd because what happened in Cairo, a public protest at an embassy during which some of the protesters scaled the facade and took down the US flag, is completely different from sieging and burning the Benghazi consulate.
