    On Sept. 14, in remarks at the Transfer of Remains Ceremony honoring the Americans killed in Libya, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton again tied to the violence to the video.

    "This has been a difficult week for the State Department and for our country. We've seen the heavy assault on our post in Benghazi that took the lives of those brave men. We've seen rage and violence directed at American embassies over an awful Internet video that we had nothing to do with. It is hard for the American people to make sense of that because it is senseless, and it is totally unacceptable," Clinton said.
