If you could isolate it to Susan Rice alone, that would be one thing. But the administration made a coordinated effort between many people to try to pass this off as a protest-gone-wrong over a youtube clip.
They even attempted to use the power of the White House to have the youtube clip censored.
The question remains. Why was the White House so desperate to paint this terrorist attack as something different than it was?
