White House denies suggestion it scrubbed
terror threat from CIA Libya account

Fox News, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:FlyRight, 11/17/2012 4:42:22 PM

The White House pushed back Saturday on suggestions that it scrubbed terrorist involvement from original CIA talking points on the fatal Libya attacks.The remark by White House Deputy National Security Adviser Ben Rhodes followed former CIA Director David Petraeus telling House and Senate intelligence committees Friday that the agency’s original talking points suggested the Sept. 11 attack involved Al Qaeda affiliates and sympathizers -- including Al Qaeda’s North Africa affiliate and a Libyan group Ansar al-Shariah. "The only edit that was made by the White House and also by the State Department was to change the word ´consulate´

Well somebody did.

There needs to be a select committee to investigate this. Four Americans have been murdered, one a diplomat and nobody seems to know anything.

It´s very frustrating when the people who know who edited the talking points will lie with impunity. They believe the ends justify the means, therefore, they say whatever needs to be said in order to achieve the desired results. I feel like giving up. How can you have a meaningful inquiry into what actually happened with people who lie and cheat?

#1 is right. Don´t tell us what you didn´t do.

1) Was it scrubbed? Yes or no?

2) If so, who did it?

Based on what B.O. said the other day:

For them to go after the UN ambassador who had nothing to do with Benghazi, and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence that she had received, and to besmirch her reputation is outrageous," Obama said.

Since she had nothing to do with Benghazi, was appearing at the behest of the WH and was making a presentation on intelligence she received (from the WH) ... what and I to think?

"That’s what our job is.... I can tell you that immediately upon finding out that our folks were in danger, that my orders to my National Security team were do whatever we need to do to make sure they’re safe." (President 0bama - 11/14/12).

This is what 0bama said at his ´´news conference.´´ It makes it clear to me that some, if not all the men were known to be alive [since the audio/video links were activated by various agencies]. One can only draw the conclusion that 0bama knew as events were taking place on 9/11.

It was a known terrorist attack from the moment it started till it sadly ended with our government, from the top on down, allowing for the murder of their "assets" in Benghazi. You´ll never scrub the blood off your hands.

I think Tom Donilon had a hand in its alteration to protect the Obama campaign. It as been his responsibility to keep any eruptions tamped down and under control.

See this New York Timea article from September 23, 2012, on that very subject:

A Manager of Overseas Crises, as Much as the World Permits
By PETER BAKER

An excerpt:

Mr. Donilon is the one who wakes the president when an ambassador is killed in Libya, the one who tries to keep Israel from rupturing relations and Egypt from heading off track. Solutions to intractable problems like Iran’s nuclear program are for another day. For now, it is Mr. Donilon’s mission to manage problems and keep them from blowing up, so Mr. Obama can focus on Mitt Romney rather than Benjamin Netanyahu

http://www.nytimes.com/2012/09/24/us/politics/tom-donilon-a-manager-of-overseas-crises.html?pagewanted=all

And to put the icing on the cake, his wife is Jill Biden´s chief of staff.

The WH first claims its because of video, is caught lying and changes its story, then that they didn´t know anything about the CIA talking points, is caught lying when the CIA says they were forwarded to them, then that they did not edit anything, and is caught lying and says they only changed a word. Really? I do think WH credibility has suffered a little here, and I think they are lying.

If a terrorist attack was given as the source of the attack, why did those attending the briefing come away with the belief that they were told it was due to a demonstration about a Youtube video?

The incompetence and corruption of the entire Obama administration is appalling, almost bordering on criminal, if it is not already considering Benghazi. America can not endure four more years of this. All these people are out of their league, over their heads and not anywhere near performing close to their current pay grades. Somethings got to give.

Uh oh. This sounds ominous. Just in case there is anyone left whose attention isn´t focused on Susan Rice after Obama shined all the spotlights on her in his news conference, in answer to the question "who doctored the talking points," the White House just had everyone take one step backward. Everyone, that is, except Rice. She´s now standing front and center all alone. I hope she has hired counsel.

Why is everyone getting upset over the "talking points?" They really don´t matter. Days after the killings, when they were certain that it was a terrorist attack, the President was still talking about the video! All this Susan Rice stuff is diverting attention from the fact that the President himself lied to us.

It was the inter-government agencies which messed up. You know the way it is with those inter-government agencies - - they´re always messing things up.

The Zippy administration is completely clean. They didn´t know anything - - so how could they have covered it up?

There has been much speculation that Susan Rice´s script came from Axelrod, who throughout the campaign was Obama´s primary spokesman on any and all sensitive issues, including Benghazi. The House Committees should quickly subpoena Axelrod and get him under oath -- as head of the campaign organization, Axelrod was and is a private citizen and thus outside of any executive or other governmental privileges Obama/Holder may try to assert to shield Axelrod.

Hold on there, cowboy!Texas Monthly magazine sued the New York Times on Friday for poaching its editor. Jake Silverstein, who was hired away from the Emmis Communications title last month to become the new editor of the New York Times Magazine, was under contract at the regional monthly until the Times, “without legal justification or excuse,” caused him to breach that deal, the lawsuit claims. The six-page Texas state court action alleges that Times Executive Editor Jill Abramson started recruiting Silverstein in December 2012 — a full year before then-magazine editor Hugo Lindgren was ousted.

The topic also came up in a 2011 ’60 Minutes’ interview with Lesley Stahl weeks before the debut of “Politics Nation.”In outtakes posted from that interview, Stahl asked Sharpton if he was an FBI informant.

Two years before the Boston Marathon bombing, the Russian government concealed key information on one of the killers that might have thwarted the attack, a new report charges.Kremlin officials intercepted a phone conversation in which Tamerlan Tsarnaev discussed Islamic jihad with his mother, but they withheld the information from the FBI, according to the U.S. inspector general report that comes as the one-year anniversary of the bombing approaches. Had the FBI been privy to the red-flag phone call, it would have prompted the bureau to take an extensive look at Tsarnaev, according to The New York Times. “Had they known what the

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared Tuesday his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America´s health care system ´a lot better´ in a Rose Garden press conference. But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged appearance is a more unsettling reality. Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night.

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)
