E-Mails Show Jostling Over Talking Points on Benghazi

More than 100 pages of e-mails released by the White House "reveal intensive jostling between the C.I.A. and the State Department over the government's official 'talking points' in the aftermath of last September's attacks in Benghazi, Libya, that killed four Americans," the New York Times reports.

"The White House released the e-mails to reporters after Republicans seized on snippets of the correspondence that became public last Friday to suggest that President Obama's staff had been complicit in trying to alter the talking points used by Susan E. Rice, the ambassador to the United Nations, in the days after the attacks."
