White House Says Biden Doesn't Speak for State Department

A White House official tells The Cable that Vice President Joe Biden "speaks only for himself and President Barack Obama, and neither man was aware that U.S. officials in Libya had asked the State Department for more security before the Sept. 11 attack on the U.S. mission in Benghazi."

Biden has come under fire for saying at Thursday night's debate, "We weren't told they wanted more security. We did not know they wanted more security there."

NBC News reports Mitt Romney said today, "The vice president directly contradicted the sworn testimony of State Department officials. He's doubling down on denial."
