A Senate report has found that the White House did not make major changes in the talking points administration officials used after the deadly attack on U.S. diplomatic facilities in Benghazi, Libya.

Some Republicans had questioned whether the president's staff rewrote the statements for political reasons.

Instead, the report cites changes made by intelligence agencies, including the FBI and the CIA, in its probe of the origin of confusing explanations that came from the Obama administration.

The report issued Monday by the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee says the White House was only responsible for a minor change.

The committee also says the director of national intelligence has been stonewalling the panel in holding back a timeline of the talking point changes.
