House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Rep. Darrell Issa revealed startling new details about Benghazi this morning on CBS’ “Face the Nation.”

Here are some of the highlights from what Issa had to say:

Issa: “You can’t insult a foreign leader in a greater way” than Rice did when she disputed what Libyan Pres said on FACE on Sept. 16
