What did Mr. Obama know and when did he know it?

An editorial from Investors Business Daily says, in part:
Five days before U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice went on the Sunday talk shows to say Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans were killed at the hands of a spontaneous mob inflamed by a months-old film trailer insulting Islam that few had seen, U.S. intelligence sources knew the attack was planned and organized. 
Yet we have an administration that lectures the American people and cautions about jumping to conclusions. Two weeks ago, Obama's UN Ambassador Susan Rice said the administration is waiting on an FBI investigation. This week, Obama spokesman Jay Carney steers reporters away from the White House and over to the FBI with questions about the Benghazi attack:
Q    On Benghazi, there still is considerable confusion over what the administration considers the attack on the U.S. consulate.  Can you say why the FBI still hasn’t been able to get into that crime scene?  And how aggressively is the United States looking for clues, and as the President says, bringing them to justice? 
MR. CARNEY:  I would have to refer you to the FBI for specifics about the investigation that they’re leading. 
Meanwhile, now nearly 20 days after the attack, it's reported that FBI agents dispatched to investigate the bombing have yet to arrive in Benghazi.

The FBI, under Eric Holder's Justice Department, appears to be pursuing the Benghazi investigation with about as much urgency as the ATF and other DOJ assets put into investigating Fast and Furious. 

It appears the Obama team is giving us an intentional stall in pursuing and providing facts, in hopes the Benghazi story falls from the minds of voters by election day. Can it keep a lid on that long? Or do Americans now have such short attention spans that the ploy is already working?
