In an interview Monday with the Washington Post, Amb. Susan Rice said she relied on “daily updates from intelligence agencies” and “on a set of talking points prepared for senior members of the administration by intelligence officials” in the lead-up to her Sept. 16 television appearances, in which she claimed that the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi had arisen from protests over an anti-Muslim video.

Rice told the Post that the information she gave “was purely a function of what was provided to us.”
