There Was No Protest!': Megyn Kelly's Fox Panel Turns Into Shoutfest Over Libya Attack

A Fox News panel devolved into a shouting match Thursday during a discussion about the terrorist assault on the U.S. Consulate in Libya, with anchor Megyn Kelly raising her voice as well.

Kelly questioned Simon Rosenberg, president of progressive think tank NDN, on President Barack Obama's initial response to the attack, particularly when he referred to "efforts to denigrate the religious beliefs of others."

"Simon you're telling me he wasn't trying to tie the tape to what happened in Benghazi there?" Kelly asked.

"Megyn, I don't think people knew at that point what had happened," Rosenberg said.

"Then why is he doing that, why is he making the association?" Kelly interjected.

"The tape was relevant because that weekend that [U.N. Ambassador] Susan Rice spoke on television there were protests against the tape in dozens of cities across the Middle East," Rosenberg said. "The tape was still roiling the Middle East, it was still a factor in the debate at that time and to deny it is just ignorant."

"To deny it is not ignorant," Kelly cut in. "There was no protest at the Benghazi consulate on the day of the attack!"

"The tape was relevant and was causing trouble in dozens of other capitals around the Middle East," he said.

"But not in Benghazi!" Kelly said.

Rosenberg later insisted that Rice's comments about a military-style assault against the consulate proved "there was never confusion about the military nature of the strike. What there was confusion of in Benghazi was the role of the video."
