CIA, FBI behind changes in talking points on Benghazi attack

White House made minor edit, Senate report says

Some Republicans had questioned whether the president’s staff rewrote the statements for political reasons.

Instead, the report cited changes made by intelligence agencies, including the FBI and the CIA, in its investigation into the origin of confusing explanations that came from the Obama administration.
