On Oct. 1, 2012, Rep. Peter King (R-NY), demanded that U.S. Ambassador Susan Rice step down after making what he called misleading comments about the attack in Benghazi. Later in the month, several senior administration officials told CNN Rice's use of the word "spontaneous" to describe the attack came directly from an assessment provided by the CIA, which was not edited by the White House. This assessment was revised following Rice's use of the word.
