Yes, there was - I recall being attacked vociferously by the not-so-dearly departed Blackbanjogirl for pointing out that 1) it was not an embassy/consulate, but a CIA outpost (a fact inadvertently revealed by Issa's hearings); 2) the CIA had attributed the attack to a "spontaneous protest" in its Sept 15 intelligence assessment, which was the basis for UN Ambassador Susan Rice's statements on the matter; 3) the CIA was responsible for providing security at the site, and the failure to do so is ultimately CIA Director David Petraeus' (yes, THAT David Petraeus) tragic error.
