Obama Advisor Dan Pfeiffer: Republicans Owe Susan Rice An "Apology"


DAN PFEIFFER, OBAMA SENIOR ADVISOR: What [the Benghazi emails] absolutely do show, beyond a shadow of the doubt is that the Republican allegation that the White House, the State Department, someone else changed the CIA's assessment for political reasons. That has proven beyond a shadow of a doubt to be false. So hopefully we can put this all behind us. And, frankly, I think that many of the Republicans who have been talking about this, now that they have seen the e-mails owe Ambassador Rice an apology for the things they said about her in the wake of the attack.

GEORGE STEPHANOPOULOS: An apology for what?

DAN PFEIFFER: For accusing her of misleading the country. For saying that she didn't -- that somehow we were -- she was involved in some sort of political whitewash of what happened there. What she said was what the intelligence community believed at the time. And when we got further information, we told the American people what that was. That's how people know what happened here.
