From the Department of Explaining Stuff

In only 17 days, the administration has concluded that the death of four State Department personnel in Benghazi, including our ambassador to Libya, was the result of a terrorist attack.

When initial reports of rocket- and mortar-supported assaults on our Benghazi consulate and secret safe house came out, the administration launched a coordinated news show assault to deny there was a terrorist attack. It was just a natural reaction during a protest about a movie they probably never saw; and unfortunately, they just happened to have enough weaponry to outfit an infantry company. Bad luck, that.

Now, with evidence that we suffered four dead in rocket- and mortar-supported attacks on our consulate and secret safe house, we are told that the administration considers the September 11th incident a "deliberate and organized terrorist attack":

The statement by the office of Director of National Intelligence James Clapper acknowledged that it represented a change in the U.S. intelligence assessment of how and why the attack happened. During the attack on two U.S. government compounds in the eastern Libyan city, four U.S. personnel, including Ambassador Christopher Stevens, were killed.

In related news from Washington, D. C., the Department of the Interior released a statement indicating that bears do indeed defecate in concentrations of large trees.
