Sen Kelly Ayotte (R-NH) not impressed after meeting with Amb Rice

My meeting with Amb. Rice -- I actually came out of the meeting more troubled than I went in, for a couple of reasons.... 
I appreciated that Amb. Rice was very direct and said that the discussion about the attack being related to a protest or the video, that was wrong, that information was wrong; and that was also confirmed by the acting CIA director that was in the meeting, Mike Morell. I appreciate that. 
But that also raises the question, the acting director of the CIA said they had known very clearly by the 22nd that that narrative was wrong, and obviously neither Amb. Rice nor multiple administration officials that had made those representations -- including in some instances the President have come forward and said that directly to the American people. 
The other troubling piece of it for me, it was clearly obvious for me there was an intelligence failure ....It seems to me that the information they were relying on in terms of even putting forth that it was, [that] the attack was a spontaneous reaction to the anti-Islam video, was insufficient in my view....
