Intel officials unable to say
who changed CIA talking
points on Libya, lawmaker says

Fox News.com, by staff

Original Article

Posted By:ebgodard, 11/16/2012 4:09:30 PM

Former CIA Director David Petraeus stoked the controversy over the Obama administration´s handling of the Libya terror attack, testifying Friday that references to "Al Qaeda involvement" were stripped from his agency´s original talking points -- while other intelligence officials were unable to say who changed the memo, according to a top lawmaker who was briefed. Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y., told Fox News that intelligence officials who testified in a closed-door hearing a day earlier, including Director of National Intelligence James Clapper and Acting CIA Director Mike Morell, said they did not know who changed the talking points.

Comments:
So does this mean if I just mail talking points to all the various departments with no header, they´ll just go out and regurgitate them with no concern where they came from? Did someone not think to bring their copies with them so they could look at the letter-head and answer the basic question? Getting a straight answer out of these people over the simplest detail is getting really maddening.

The CIA would have retained a copy of the original. Just ask them.

She didn´t know she was lying? Sorry, not buying. They had to coordinate to get the story straight beforehand. Besides which , she has a responsibility to ensure she is telling the truth if she is going to go on 5 Sunday shows.

Obama already told us where her talking points came from; Zippy himself, or the White House staff at his or Valerie´s direction.

My vote is that the guilty party is Tom Donlin, the NSC director. Bob Gates thought he was the source of the Bin Ladin leaks to the NY Times last year and told him to shut the f___ up about classified matters to the press.

Someone is lying. Most likely more than one person.

Subpoena everyone in the loop and interview them separately behind closed doors and find out whose stories don´t add up.

Be relentless and remind them all of the penalty for perjury.

Four good men died to protect Obama´s public image.

Someone has to pay for these crimes.

Find them. Prosecute them.

Oh my, oh my. Are they going to ask the tough questions? Who changed the cover-up story? Who´s sleeping with who?

These are not the questions that need to be asked.

Why have Russia, China and Iran very vocally allied themselves with Assad´s Syria? Why has Russia deployed troops to protect Russia´s mediteranean naval port, which is in Syria? Why has NATO pledged it´ full support to Turkey in any actions that Turkey decides to take against Syria? Why is Turkey so upset about missile attacks on their airforce? Why is the Russian representative in the UN condemning "someone" in the west of criminaly running guns from fallen Libya into Syria? Why after the latest attack on Turkish aircraft did a Turkish representative covertly meet with Stevens in Benghazi? How lucky is that Turkish representative to have left the meeting with Stevens minutes before an attack? Why is it that Russia, China, Iran, NATO, Turkey, the Islamic Brotherhood are all in Syria during a civil war making loud angry noises? Why is there no doubt in my mind that obama is running weapons to rebel forces in Syria (in all fair play obama does have a history with gun running in Mexico)? With all of the worlds military powers right in the middle of a nasty civil war with angry points of view, why is no one in washington asking anything about this situation?

Senator Paula Broadwell? It might have been. TIME Magazine reports that David Petraeus’ mistress considered running for as a Republican candidate for senate in North Carolina — but the then-CIA director was against the idea. In July, Broadwell was in Aspen, Colo., for the Aspen Security Forum, TIME said on Thursday, and told a handful of people that GOP financiers had approached her about a possible campaign. She told the acquaintances that when she informed Petraeus, he questioned her positions on issues ranging from abortion to gun control to taxes.

President Obama is holding on to Eric Holder as the nation’s top law-enforcement official, The Post has learned. The newly re-elected president asked his controversial attorney general to stay for the second term, and Holder has agreed despite enduring a firestorm of criticism from Republican lawmakers. “I don’t know if everyone in the White House wants him [Holder] to stay, but the important guy does, and that’s all that matters,” said one person briefed on the matter. Holder’s office declined to comment. His hardest-fought battle came over the botched sting operation called Fast and Furious,

Washington - Anonymous harassing emails that Tampa socialite Jill Kelley turned over to the FBI contained information about the movements of CIA Director David Petraeus which was not publicly available, a law enforcement source told Reuters. The fact that the emails´ author - later determined to be Petraeus´ mistress Paula Broadwell - knew confidential information about the CIA chief´s activities was one of the main reasons the FBI felt compelled to launch an in-depth investigation into their origin and motivation, the source said. The emails, which a second law enforcement source said included

ASHINGTON — Michelle Obama says a gay University of Missouri football player is “an inspiration to all of us.” The first lady took to Twitter on Monday to comment on Michael Sam, the all-American college player who announced Sunday that he is gay. Mrs. Obama says she “couldn’t be prouder” of Sam’s courage, both on and off the field. The tweet was signed “-mo,” which is how the White House marks messages personally sent by the first lady. Sam could become the first openly homosexual player in the NFL. He’s scheduled to participate in the league’s weeklong scouting camp, where potential draftees

BAGHDAD — A group of Sunni militants attending a suicide bombing training class at a camp north of Baghdad were killed on Monday when their commander unwittingly conducted a demonstration with a belt that was packed with explosives, army and police officials said. The militants belonged to a group known as the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, or ISIS, which is fighting the Shiite-dominated army of the Iraqi government, mostly in Anbar Province. But they are also linked to bomb attacks elsewhere and other fighting that has thrown Iraq deeper into sectarian violence.

President Obama has broken many promises. One that he has not broken is his boast that he would "fundamentally transform America." He and his fellow Democrats are on the verge of doing just that by turning us into a nation of loafers. A loafer is an idle person who lives off others. Barack Obama seemingly has no problem with such people. He might even relate to them. He does have a serious problem with his own work ethic, and finds work boring. (snip) But Obama and his Democratic Party allies seem to be gleeful about the rise of the loafer class.

Powerful winds in the Pacific Ocean, which have driven surface heat deep underwater, could be the reason behind the current ‘pause’ in global warming. This is according to a joint Australian and U.S. study which has looked at why there has been a slowdown in the planet’s global average surface temperature over the past decade. Their research shows that trade winds in central and eastern parts of the Pacific have caused warm surface water to sink to the ocean´s depths, reducing the amount of heat in the atmosphere.

From its inception, the strategy behind the Obama administration’s implementation of ObamaCare has been simple: to frontload the benefits and postpone the pain and costs of this massive government intrusion into the private sector for as long as possible. This deceitful approach enabled President Obama run for reelection in 2012 on the spurious promise of extending insurance coverage to the poor and those with pre-existing conditions without being held accountable for the problems with the law that would only become apparent in his second term.
