WASHINGTON — A top Republican senator on a committee investigating the September attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, said Wednesday that intelligence officials had testified that they knew right away that it was a terrorist attack, undercutting the Obama administration’s claim to have had a mix of reports during that first week.

Bob Corker (R-Tenn.), who is widely expected to become the top Republican on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee next year, told reporters that in a closed-door session of the committee on Tuesday afternoon, intelligence officials said that they “let everybody know immediately” what they knew.

He described the Democrats sitting on the committee as being startled by the testimony.

OBAMA: If Senator McCain and Senator Graham, and others want to go after somebody? They should go after me. And I’m happy to have that discussion with them. But for them to go after the U.N. ambassador who had nothing to do with Benghazi? And was simply making a presentation based on intelligence that she had received? And to besmirch her reputation is outrageous.
