For those claiming that this is about attributing the attacks to the video, mediamatters(dot)org/blog/2013/05/06/weekly-standard-accidentally-disproves-central/193917
Watch less Fox News. The CIA pushed these talking points to begin with, and at the end of the day, who cares? It's an argument over semantics! Act of Terror is only semantically different than terrorism, and Obama called it an 'Act of Terror' immediately after the attacks. Even if he had not I would not care because they asterisked the entire speech with 'we are still investigating' and 'these are preliminary findings', so if he was wrong, he had the opportunity to revise! This Benghazi outrage is the very definition of a fake scandal.
The scandal isn't that the embassy was attacked. The scandal is that the Obama administration came out and tried to spin the attack as some spur of the moment rioting when it was actually a coordinated planned operation. It was in the administrations best interest in an election year to make it seem like terrorism and Al Qaeda in general was on a downward swing after the strike against Bin Laden. A coordinated planned attack that ended up killing a US ambassador kinda puts that narrative to bed. Hence they blamed it on a spontaneous riot based a youtube video with a thousand views.

I know it takes some basic logical thinking to understand why the scandal is a scandal. Please post your TEAMs talking points elsewhere.
