US Intel chair denies Libya attack was spontaneous

Mike Rogers said that he had seen "no information" that anti-film protests were ongoing prior to the assault.



Washington: A leading House Republican is challenging the White House`s initial account that the attack on the US Consulate in Libya was a spontaneous assault tied to protests over an anti-Islam video.

President Barack Obama has said extremists used the video as an excuse to launch the attack, which killed US Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans.

Rep Mike Rogers of Michigan, who chairs the House Intelligence Committee, told CNN`s "State of the Union" today that he had seen "no information" that anti-film protests were ongoing prior to the assault and that the administration was "ill-advised" to link the two.

Robert Gibbs, a senior adviser to the Obama campaign, told Fox News that the investigation continues and "no one wants to get to the bottom of this more than the US President."
