Top Democrats accused Republican White House hopeful Mitt Romney yesterday of "cravenly" politicizing the deadly attack on the US consulate in Benghazi to further his presidential ambitions.

Ambassador Chris Stevens and 3 other US diplomatic staff were killed when militants armed with rocket-propelled grenades launched an assault on the compound in the eastern Libyan city on September 11th.

Romney railed at Biden the following day for "doubling down on denial," accusing him of contradicting sworn testimony from US officials who said the State Department had refused requests prior to the Benghazi assault.
