The New York Times re­leases a deep dive in­to the ori­gins of last year’s Benghazi at­tack, that many say cor­rob­or­ates the ini­tial State De­part­ment claim of a spon­tan­eous in­sur­rec­tion — and that it was not, as Re­pub­lic­an talk­ing points as­sert, a planned al-Qaeda strike.

On Fox News Sunday, Rep. Mike Ro­gers, chair­man of the House Se­lect Com­mit­tee on In­tel­li­gence, launched a vehe­ment at­tack of the Times re­port, say­ing the ‘story is just not ac­cur­ate.’ 

Plus, Ed­ward Snowden is once again the sub­ject of tele­vi­sion de­bate. Thomas Drake, former seni­or of­fi­cial at the Na­tion­al Se­cur­ity Agency and whis­tleblower, de­fends Snowden, while former CIA Dir­ect­or Mi­chael Hay­den calls him ‘a trait­or.’
