    Q: Did he say why it was taken out of the talking points that [the attack] was Al Qaeda affiliated?
    KING: He didn’t know.
    Q: He didn’t know? What do you mean he didn’t know?
    KING: They were not involved — it was done, the process was completed and they said, “Ok go with those talking points.” Again it’s interagency — I got the impression that 7, 8, 9 different agencies.
    Q: Did he give you the impression that he was upset it was taken out?
    KING: No.
    Q: You said the CIA said “OK” to the revised report –
    KING: No, well, they said in that, after it goes through the process, they OK’d it to go. Yeah, they said “Okay for it to go.”

      His previous talking points/false accusations are slowly being destroyed, bit by bit, by the facts.  The reporters are actually pulling it out of him, much to his own chagrin, I'm sure.

      Btw, to me it looks like a total cave-in by King. There was no interference by the White House. There was no 'coverup'. Even his demeanor seems like a wet rooster.

      (Btw, of course Ansar Al-Shariah was involved, who else would launch an assault on the US consulate so soon after the US helped overthrow their 40-year dictator. The questions are how far in advance was it planned? Months? Weeks? Days? Only hours? Was it opportunistic, did they jump on the bandwagon of popular protests over the video? Etc.)
