This morning on Fox News Sunday, Robert Gibbs had problems explaining why the Obama administration misled the nation on what happened in Libya:

"Absolutely no one intentionally or unintentionally misled anybody involved in this," said Gibbs.

Asked about why Ambassador Susan Rice told the nation that the attack was spontaneous, when it now appears to have been a planned terrorist attack, Gibbs will only say that Rice answered the question based on the intelligence available to her.

"No one wants to get to the bottom of this more than the president and secretary of state," Gibbs said.
