Democrats are shrugging off Republican accusations that President Barack Obama's aides deliberately covered up the details of the Sept. 11 attack in Libya that killed a U.S. ambassador.

Sen. Lindsey Graham says he believes the administration is trying to keep voters from questioning Obama's handling of the war on terror. He told CBS' "Face the Nation" that he believes the administration knew within 24 hours that the Benghazi attack was a coordinated assault but wanted people to think the president had dismantled al-Qaida.

While the White House is declining comment on the charge, the top Democrat on the House committee investigating the attack is dismissing it. Congressman Elijah Cummings calls the charge ridiculous "conspiracy stuff."
