Benghazi-gate is just getting interesting

It looks like the White House is getting close to panic mode on the ABC report today about the Benghazi spin and now it seems to be in cover-up mode.

Via ABC:
WASHINGTON - When it became clear last fall that the CIA's now discredited Benghazi talking points were flawed, the White House said repeatedly the documents were put together almost entirely by the intelligence community, but White House documents reviewed by Congress suggest a different story.

ABC News has obtained 12 different versions of the talking points that show they were extensively edited as they evolved from the drafts first written entirely by the CIA to the final version distributed to Congress and to U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Susan Rice before she appeared on the Sunday talk shows after the attack.

White House emails reviewed by ABC News suggest the edits were made with extensive input from the State Department. The edits included requests from the State Department that references to the Al Qaeda-affiliated group Ansar al-Sharia be deleted as well as references to CIA warnings about terrorist threats in Benghazi in the months preceding the attack.

That would appear to directly contradict what White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said in November about the talking points.
That's not exactly a smoking gun, but it is damning and deserves to be investigated much more deeply than it has been.  Those who sought back in November to derail those who questioned why nothing was done and why the story out of the White House through it's speakers like Susan Rice was very different from what really happened.

Why is it flaring up now?  There are whistle blowers out there saying the official White House version of events on the ground is deliberately misleading.  They will get skewered (unfairly) for doing so. And more importantly the White House goes on the offensive and Press Secretary Jay Carney is out there blaming the right, again.
White House press secretary Jay Carney on Friday continued to downplay the Obama administration’s role in editing official talking points following the deadly terrorist attacks in Benghazi on September 11, 2012, and in doing so took a swipe at former GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney, as well as former president George W. Bush.

“This ongoing effort [to compile the talking points] began hours after the attack, when Mitt Romney put out a press release to try to take political advantage out of these deaths, out of the attack in Benghazi, in a move that was maligned even by members of his own party,” Carney said. “And from that day forward there has been this effort to politicize it.”
I don't think they are panicking just yet in the Obama camp, but they most surely are getting nervous.  You can see the wounded dog going on offense at the latest media briefing.

This is all an attempt to cover for both Obama and Hillary Clinton.  Failing being able to do that, Hillary will be tossed under the bus.  That's where it will really get interesting.  Meanwhile the real problem is the bumbling on the night of September 11th, 2012 that led to four dead Americans.  Those in charge deserve all of the fallout from this that they get.


  1. As the hearings unfolded Wednesday it was apparent to anyone who chose to open their minds that this administration from the President down lied to their teeth! Some call it political. Some call it moronic stupidity. Some call it miscommunication. Bulls...! The President of the United States, The Secretary of State, The Press Secretary and more all lied! And apparently the then Secretary of Defense had his head so far up the President’s ass that he also came out with some bulls… line as to “we couldn’t just send our people in there without knowing the situation”. We know they had real time video! We know they were told that the consulate was under attack. And we damned well know the “video” excuse was complete balderdash.

    I want to make one point as to the above that I have not really seen any one expound upon much and if I am wrong on this assertion I would ask someone to please show me that. It is my understanding that for hours, one of the hero Seals reported he had the mortar position that was shelling the consulate “lit up” while they were begging for help. I understand that this means he had a laser aimed at the position which in turn a fighter could have homed a missile or whatever in on. It is also my understanding that as the battle lasted for some hours, there was in fact plenty of time to get an F16 over there which could have blown the sorry Muslim Al-Quida whatever they are called bastards directly to hell! Yet our Secretary of Defense said we couldn’t do that?! And what about our Commander in Chief, you know, the one who was informed and went to bed because he had to be up early for a trip to Vegas! He couldn’t have ordered a strike?!

    Four people died! This administration lied! It doesn’t get any simpler than that! The lies have to stop!!!

  2. It's simple up to the point of the cover up. The same group that didn't get this right is brilliant at getting away with lies.

    That has to change.

  3. 0bama and Billy Ayers formed the Chicago Climate Exchange with Al Gore/Maurice Strong and Richard Sandor to sell phony carbon credits.. On 9/11/2001 1152 people (44%) of the people killed on 9/11 were in Direct competition with the CCX.. Carlton Bartels who invented CO2 carbon calculator computer program was killed ..and the patent was given to Franklin Raines of FM/FM..s really would like someone to research this and expose 0bama and his global warming/climate change Carbon credit trading scheme before he totally destroys out country..
