During the White House daily press briefing this afternoon, Press Secretary Jay Carney finally admitted there was no protest outside of the U.S. consulate in Benghazi on 9/11 when pressed by reporters on the issue.

“There was no protest outside of the Benghazi facility,” Carney said.

Carney also continued the White House's full defense of UN Ambassador Susan Rice on the subject, saying she is a "principle" part of President Obama's foreign policy team and that focusing on the argument she used on Sunday shows won't help get to the bottom of what happened in Benghazi on 9/11. 

“Nothing that occurred on a Sunday show.....relates to our need to find out who is responsible,” Carney said.
