A new report is out on the September 11 U.S. consulate attack in Benghazi last year. Authored by five Republican committee chairmen in the House, the report reveals new information on the attack, including the fact that Hillary Clinton personally rejected the plea for more security in Libya and that the White House deliberately massaged the talking points that were used in the wake of the attacks so as to downplay or remove references linking the attack to al-Qaeda-linked groups.

The report authors had access to administration emails and have been able to put together what The Daily Beast reports as "the clearest account to date of how the official public statements in the days after September 11, 2012 from the Obama administration departed from the classified assessments of the attack that killed Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans."

As the report and other events this week have highlighted, critics say misleading is becoming a habit for the administration. As TheBlaze has reported, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano has now changed her story on multiple occasions regarding the Saudi national who was considered a 'person of interest' after the Boston Marathon bombings.

On 'Real News' Wednesday the panel was joined by Rep. Jason Chaffetz to debate if this report will pick up steam and attention back on Benghazi, and will more begin to question the openness and honesty of this administration.
