What Was the Government’s Initial Response to the Attacks?

Immediately following the attack, President Obama expressed sympathy for the loss of American life and U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice stood in for Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on several U.S. news programs. She described the attack as a spontaneous protest incited by an anti-Islamic movie called The Innocence of Muslims.
