7. that's the most credible reason I've heard

I'm not sure why they maintained for so long that it was the video, but your explanation is the most credible one I've heard for why they might have not made people aware of what they knew, at least for a little while. The terrorist group Ansar al-Sharia did claim responsibility for the the attack (according to Reuters and CBS News) just hours after it started, but maybe by being quiet about that fact they were hoping to smoke out some others that were involved.
