Two extremely obvious points that Benghazi!tm its proponents don't seem to know

(1) If a militant group attacks a consulate, it is terrorism. That is true whether or not the group was angry about a YouTube video or if the group was angry for some other reason. Thus, saying an attack happened because people were mad at a video is not saying the attack was not terrorism.

(2) An administration's talking points are its attempt to spin a news story in its favor. If it turns out that talking points were designed to play down some aspect of a story that might be embarrassing for the administration, that does not mean there was some conspiracy or cover up. It means they were talking points.
