Sources: DNI cut "al Qaeda"
reference from Benghazi
talking points, and CIA,
FBI signed off

CBS News, by Staff

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.

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.

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.

The Moroccan man arrested for allegedly planning to use remote-control planes to bomb a university building and federal building was able to remain in the United States by lying to immigration officials. El Mehdi Semlali Fathi was able to avoid a final order of removal last year — after remaining in the country for seven years after his visa expired — by claiming a fear of persecution based on his political beliefs, according to a Federal Bureau of Investigation affidavit. “There is probable cause to believe, and I do believe that FATHI’s application for withholding of removal status was obtained

Embattled former IRS official Lois Lerner is on two different hot seats this week, as a pair of Republican-led congressional committees aim to prosecute her for her role in a scheme to target conservative groups in the middle of an election campaign season. The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee will convene a hearing on Thursday to consider a motion holding Lerner in contempt of Congress, the first step toward a possible criminal prosecution. A contempt resolution, if the House should approve it, could also help persuade a federal court to compel Lerner to testify about her role in what

Last month in an interview on CBS’s Face the Nation, Romney himself ruled out the possibility of a 2016 run and said he was instead focused on who to get behind in that contest. Coulter, however, wishes otherwise. “Well, don´t tell him but I´m planning on giving Mitt Romney a little more time to rest -- flying out, kidnapping him and depriving him of sleep, food and

In a letter Thursday, the GOP senators faulted the EPA for announcing a proposed rule last week before the government´s peer-reviewed scientific assessment was fully complete. They are calling on the government to withdraw the rule or give the public six months to review it, rather than the three months being provided.

U.S. employers added jobs at a solid pace in March in the latest sign that the economy is rebounding from a weak stretch brought on by a harsh winter. The Labor Department says employers added 192,000 jobs, slightly below February´s total of 197,000. Employers also added a combined 37,000 more jobs in February and January than previously estimated. The unemployment rate was unchanged at 6.7 percent. But a half-million Americans started looking for work last month, and most of them found jobs. The increase in job-seekers is a sign that they are more optimistic about their prospects. March´s job gain

"I take very seriously the allegations about how the CIA in general and about how I in particular handled the analysis and the talking points," Morell told the House Intelligence Committee, in his first public testimony on the Benghazi attacks. "The ethical code under which intelligence officers carry out their responsibilities calls for total objectivity." But Morell´s own testimony would appear to undercut that

Kathryn Riffenburg decided on a closed casket for her baby´s funeral. She didn´t want her family to see what whooping cough, her son´s first illness, had done to 9-week-old Brady Alcaide. The nearly forgotten disease, which has in recent years afflicted thousands of Americans, left Brady´s tiny body swollen and unrecognizable. So his mother dressed him in a white baptismal suit and hat and tucked him into a tiny white casket. Brady´s burial came just four weeks after his first laugh — inspired by her version of I´m a Little Teapot — and two weeks after his family learned that he had

President Barack Obama will speak this week for the second time at the annual meeting of Sharpton´s National Action Network, raising questions about the group´s special treatment.

Democrats are facing a senior problem that could get even worse this year. The party has traditionally had trouble with older voters, losing the group aged 65 and over by 21 points in 2010 — when Republicans picked up 63 seats — and by 12 points in the 2012 presidential race. Seniors are the GOP’s most reliable voting bloc in midterm years, turning out in higher numbers than Democratic base voters. A recent Gallup poll showed seniors have become even more Republican over the last two decades; in 2013, 48 percent considered themselves Republican. That spells trouble for Democrats, who are already facing

When friends and family members gathered recently at the White House for a private celebration of Michelle Obama’s 50th birthday, one of the invited partygoers was a former paid FBI Mafia informant. That same man attended February’s state dinner in honor of French President Francois Hollande. He was seated with his girlfriend at a table adjacent to President Barack Obama, who is likely unaware that, according to federal agents, his guest once interacted with members of four of New York City’s five organized crime families. He even secretly taped some of those wiseguys using a briefcase that FBI technicians outfitted

LONDON - Peaches Geldof, the wild-child second daughter of concert organizer Bob Geldof who worked as a model, a television presenter and a fashion writer and filled the pages of British tabloids with her late-night antics, has died at age 25. There was no immediate word on the cause of her death at her home in Wrotham, Kent, southeast England. Her father said in a statement Monday: "Peaches has died. We are beyond pain." "She was the wildest, funniest, cleverest, wittiest and the most bonkers of all of us," he said. "Writing 'was' destroys me afresh. What a beautiful child. How is this possible that we will not see her again? How is that bearable? We loved her and will cherish her forever."
