State Dept officials make it very hard to believe what Obama and Biden have been saying about the Benghazi attack

background conference call with Senior State Department Officials from last Tuesday is a wealth of information on the attack.
OPERATOR: The next question is from the line of Brad Klapper with AP. Please, go ahead. 
QUESTION: Hi, yes. You described several incidents you had with groups of men, armed men. What in all of these events that you’ve described led officials to believe for the first several days that this was prompted by protests against the video? 
SENIOR STATE DEPARTMENT OFFICIAL TWO: That is a question that you would have to ask others. That was not our conclusion. I’m not saying that we had a conclusion, but we outlined what happened. The Ambassador walked guests out around 8:30 or so, there was no one on the street at approximately 9:40, then there was the noise and then we saw on the cameras the – a large number of armed men assaulting the compound. . . .
My question is whether this will create a war between Hillary Clinton and Obama.  The White House seems to be willing to blame things on the State Department, thus on Clinton, but the State Department doesn't seem to be willing to taken this blame lying down.
