New details in Libya investigation

Last night CNN reported that the White House chose to leave out key intelligence from information shared with the public about the attack so-called "talking points" that Ambassador Susan Rice used on Sunday talk shows emphasizing an "initial assessment" that the attack began as a spontaneous protest that the attack did not appear to be planned.

The White House's National Security Council spokesman Tommy Vietor tells CNN the White House was not involved in writing the memo.
CNN Foreign Affairs Reporter Elise Labott has been following this story and she's OutFront tonight.
