While Schiff conceded that the report provides some insight into the Benghazi attack, he said it doesn't conclude for sure whether al Qaeda was fully responsible or not involved at all.

"I don't think either paradigm is really accurate here," he said. "Intelligence indicates al Qaeda was involved."

The Times investigation found that the attack was spurred in part by an American anti-Islamic video, a claim with which Rogers disagreed.

"I dispute that, and the intelligence community, to a large volume, disputes that," he said on "Fox News Sunday."
