    INVESTIGATION: CAUSE OF ATTACK WAS NOT BASED ON FILM PROTESTS​




    The State Department says it never concluded that the attack was simply a protest gone awry.

    Meanwhile the investigating committee's chairman, Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., has accused the State Department of turning aside pleas from its diplomats in Libya to increase security in the months and weeks before the attack.

    One scheduled witness, Eric Nordstrom, the former chief security officer for U.S. diplomats in Libya, told the committee his pleas for more security were ignored.

    Department officials were asked about the administration's initial - and since retracted - explanation linking the violence to protests over an American-made anti-Muslim video circulating on the Internet.

    One official responded 'that was not our conclusion' and called it a question for 'others' to answer, without specifying to whom he was referring.
