Congress wants more on creating of Benghazi 'talking points,' omission of terror link

   WASHINGTON (AP) -- Members of Congress are asking new questions about what te
U.S. officials knew and when about the attack on the consulate in Benghazi, Libya, on
September 11th.
   Speaking on the Sunday talk shows, they said they want to know who was behind
the Obama administration's "talking points" and why a final draft left out the CIA's
decision early on that terrorists were involved.
   Some republicans have alleged a cover up, accusing White House aides of hiding
the terrorism link in the run-up to the presidential election.
   Even Sen. Dianne Feinstein, the Democrat who heads the powerful Intelligence
Committee, says she has questions how the talking points were created when it
was clear early on that the assault wasn't a simple protest that turned violent.
   A senior U.S. official familiar with the document, says the al-Qaida reference was
deleted because the information came from classified sources and the links were
tenuous.
