The White House on Wednesday released a trove
of documents related to its handling of the terrorist attack on a US
facility in Benghazi, Libya last year.
More than 100 pages of emails detail the back and forth between the White House, State Department and CIA on the talking points about what happened in the attack.
The White House and the State Department came under intense criticism last week when the internal memos were leaked to the press, providing fodder for Republicans alleging the Obama administration attempted to downplay the event's terrorist origins.
Those reports showed extensive edits to talking points that were then used by UN Ambassador Susan Rice to discuss the attacks on television. She has been criticized for providing a faulty explanation of the attack that left four Americans, including the ambassador to Libya, dead.
