CBS Retracts \"60 Minutes\" Report On Benghazi Attack

(Undated) -- CBS is retracting a "60 Minutes" report about the 2012 terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Libya. Appearing on "CBS This Morning" Friday, correspondent Lara Logan apologized to viewers, saying the network was misled by a supposed eyewitness who told "60 Minutes" he had witnessed the deadly attack in Benghazi. Logan said the "most important thing to every person at '60 Minutes' is the truth and the truth is we made a mistake." According to "The Washington Post," the October 27th broadcast led to another round of Republican accusations against the Obama administration over its account of the attack.
Using the pseudonym Morgan Jones on the program, the man, Dylan Davies, described to Logan how he encountered several attackers after scaling the walls of the diplomatic compound and how he managed to disable one of the attackers. But Logan says unbeknownst to her at the time, Davies had told a different story to his employer, British-based security contractor Blue Mountain in an "incident report," saying he and others could not get anywhere near the compound due to roadblocks. She says that was the moment they realized they no longer had confidence in Davies as a source and were wrong to put him on the air.
