WASHINGTON - CBS News has learned that the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (DNI) cut specific references to "al Qaeda" and "terrorism" from the unclassified talking points given to Ambassador Susan Rice on the Benghazi consulate attack - with the agreement of the CIA and FBI. The White House or State Department did not make those changes. There has been considerable discussion about who made the changes to the talking points that Rice stuck to in her television appearances on Sept. 16 (video), five days after the attack that

Comments:
Oh sure. The regime will do everything they can to cover those in the White House who are most likely the guilty culprits. It was probably Jarrett, Axelrod or Plouffe. I´ve never had much confidence in Clapper. I will never forget he was not even aware of the terrorist attack in London.

Mission: find scapegoats for Barack Obama´s impeachable dereliction of duty.

Mission accomplished.

Ummm - - OK.

So - - the actual, factual link to Al-Qaeda was too tenuous to mention - - but the fabricated link to the video was so rock solid that they eagerly broadcast it over five TV networks.

Yup - - count me in - - I´ll buy that.

Are we to believe that no one in the "White HOuse" knew what Rice was going to say? Isn´t the DNI part of the Executive Branch, by the way?

Catherine Herridge at Fox News is reporting this morning that this "new" view is at variance with sworn testimony from the previous week.

Funny thing about telling the truth: You never have to remember what you said.

In this case, there is a new reality every week, often at variance with the reality of last week. This variances in reality are called "lies."

Are we actually expected to believe that the head of one agency creates a report, someone in a second agency changes the report, it ends up back at the initial agency to confirm the changes, and the head of the initial agency who created the report subsequently knows nothing about the changes, but there you go,the WH and the State Dept are magically absolved from any blame. They see no evil, hear no evil, and speak of no evil. Frankly, they will do anything to wall off the WH from anything negative. I hope that
Mr. Petreaus is asked back to speak before Congress and tells them that as head of the CIA he was just expected to be a figurehead and that his subordinates did not even tell them when they altered HIS reports. I absolutely believe that this new story is
fiction.

They simply think we are stupid - there is no other explanation. #2 hit the nail on the head: the government wasn´t certain it was al Qaeda so they did the cautious thing - they fabricated a lie and threw a film maker in jail. Our president and secretary of state both had the callousness to repeat that lie while standing over the remains of the four fallen well after the fact. These people are pure evil.

Yak yak yak. These tools just yammer on and on until the witless lose interest and yield on the point that the idiot administration did NOT say that the attacks were a spontaneous thing that got outta hand. That was a lie and everybody knows it but the foolishness just keeps spilling out.

Benghazi is a big rug and a bigger pile of dirt. It takes the entire corrupt Obama Administration to pick up the edge of the rug, and the entire LSM to wield the brooms.

Clapper is an "old white male", which means that this racist set up the incredibly intelligent, sophisticated and inspirational African America woman so that she would be attacked by two of the GOP´s old white males, McCain and Graham. Or, simply, the head of Obama´s DNI gave Susan Rice the clap so that she would have to lie 5 times on TV about it.

The entire Obama Administration is as unappealing as a social disease. Unfortunately, 51% rejected the cure.

Any way you look at it, Rice lied--or transmitted a lie. Even if you accept what Clapper says as true, it was a lie that the attack was spontaneous or that the evidence supported that statement. The CIA´s original statement said otherwise. Are we just supposed to accept lies by our government on the assumption they have some reason for the lie? Here is what Rice should have said, if what Clapper said is true: We are still investigating the reasons for the attack. There is evidence that it was initiated by terrorist groups that may have a connection to Al Qaeda. We are still trying to connect all the dots.

In my opinion the attempt to attribute this attack on terrorists or from a spontaneous outbreak of violence arising from the typical peace loving Muslims is minor compared to saying this attack was because of a protest of an unviewed film made in the US. The fabricator of the film story created to give cover to the typical peaceful Muslims needs to be discovered and questioned.

Uh, so, was it the DNI who decided surreptitiously to make ads depicting Obama and Clinton condemning and apologizing for the Mohammed movie and show them on TV in the Middle East, ten days after the consulate attack? I guess it must have been somebody else´s idea, since obviously the President, Secretary of State and Amassador Rice had nothing to do with it. The DNI must have written the scripts and had Obama and Clinton read them without their knowledge.

Fine, that´s the cover story. Great, I´ll buy it.

Now let´s move on (to quote hillary) to the real question, what is obama really doing in Benghazi, because the Russians, Chinese, Turks, Iranians, Syrians and just about the entire rest of the world believe that obama is running Libyan weapons to Islamic terrorists.

Your friendly neighborhood columnist has once again run afoul of Facebook’s elusive community standards. Now before you call up the preacher and put me on the church prayer list – let me assure the posting was neither unseemly nor ungentlemanly. This time I was censored for writing something about Rancher Cliven Bundy. I realized I had landed in the Facebook gulag when I tried to post our daily Bible verse. However, I was unable to post anything because Facebook had taken great offense to something I had written. “We removed something your page posted,” Facebook told me in a rather unpleasant message.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

Rep. Colleen Hanabusa (D-HI) says her constituents are "frustrated and embarrassed" by Hawaii´s failed Obamacare exchange, which cost taxpayers $204 million and signed up only 8,000 people. On Wednesday, the Government Accountability Office (GAO) announced it will launch an investigation into Hawaii´s busted Obamacare program. "This is not a partisan issue, this is an economic issue," said state Sen. Sam Slom. Hawaii Gov. Neil Abercrombie previously predicted "hundreds of thousand of people" would sign up for Obamacare in the President´s home state. On Thursday, President Barack Obama tried to rally Democrats to

Nearly half of American voters think the IRS targeted conservative groups at the request of the White House, and most want Congress to keep investigating the matter. The latest Fox News poll also finds 69 percent don’t feel President Obama has followed through on his vow to “find out exactly what happened on this.” By a 49-41 percent margin, voters believe the Obama administration “intentionally had the IRS target conservative political groups.” That includes 26 percent of Democrats, 52 percent of independents and 71 percent of Republicans. Meanwhile, 67 percent of voters want Congress to keep investigating the IRS until

Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y.) introduced today a bill to update the government´s 20-year-old report on hate speech in the media.

Even though the number of illegal immigrants who have been deported through the courts has dropped by 43% since President Barack Obama took office, the Obama administration may enact administrative changes to allow bond hearings for detained illegal immigrants. According to the Los Angeles Times, this could result in "several thousand" illegal immigrants being released from jails and "could slow the pace of deportations" even more. The Times notes that the White House is scrambling to "ease the concerns of Latino groups and other traditional allies that have turned on President Obama in recent weeks" by trying to brand him

It’s pitiful that we’ve reached this point, but Obama’s account of this chat really is more credible than Cantor’s. O’s position on immigration is straightforward: He wants amnesty badly, partly for legacy reasons and partly because he’s understandably keen to legalize a few million future Democratic voters, and he’s hoping the GOP will go along so that he doesn’t have to do something risky like an executive moratorium on deportations. The GOP leadership’s position is anything but straightforward. They’re convinced that they need to pass some sort of immigration bill before 2016 or else Latinos will hand the White House

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances.
