House Intelligence Chair: CIA Talking Points Were Changed By White House

And other things you were already pretty sure of. But he gets more specific than your hunch probably was.

Rep. Mike Rogers (R-Mich.), chairman of the House intelligence committee, says the unclassified talking points put together by the CIA changed when they got to administration appointees:

"[T]here was not an intelligence failure," Rogers told "Meet the Press" on Sunday.

"The intelligence community had it right, and they had it right early. What happened was it worked its way up through the system of the so-called talking points, which everyone refers to, and then it went up to what’s called a deputy’s committee...It went to the so-called deputy’s committee, that’s populated by appointees from the administration. That’s where the narrative changed. And so how that thing got back to (Susan) Rice, I think, is probably another question."

And so the White House worked strenuously to provide the American public with a false narrative about the events in Benghazi.

I have this strange notion that whenever someone is assiduously working against the truth, the truth probably does not favor that person.

Imagine the CO of a FOB in Afghanistan refusing to send support to a patrol under heavy fire, and then lying to his superiors about what happened and who was responsible.

We already know the answer to that, too. The White House (meaning Obama) had a direct feed of the events. No matter who refused to send help, Barack Obama could have done so simply by saying, "Are you out of your mind? Of course we send in the troops!"

He didn't. Therefor, whoever spoke the order, it came from him.

Nothing will be done in the Senate, Dingy Harry has already said so explicitly;

Harry Reid: No Benghazi Select Committee in Senate

Saying he refuses “to allow the Senate to be used as a venue for baseless partisan attacks,” Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid quashed a GOP request to create a Select Committee on the Benghazi consulate attack.

There have to be 67 Senators willing to impeach for there to be any repercussions. The only thing Obama could do that would get a Democrat to vote for impeachment would be to switch parties.

Actually, I think the public was as stupid then as now. The differences are the MSM no longer hides their partisanship and, as you said, attention span. However, there is proportionally more information flow, which compresses the time span. I'll give up hope on anything happening over Benghazi in five more months.

56 I agree, Ace. The truth isn't favorable to them.

Was Obama simply not aware this was happening? Was he paralyzed with indecision? Or was he determined that everyone in the consulate/annex be killed?

Where are the survivors? In hospitals? Hiding? Gone full black? In protective custody?

58 The entire Benghazi affair illustrates clearly just how completely in the tank the media is.

From the beginning, they downplayed the significance of an assassinated Ambassador, ignored the lax security despite months of warnings and pleas for upgrades, lambasted Romney for a week for taking the exact position the White House took within 12 hours of Mitt, and refused to cover the story further (except Fox News) until after the election.

The sad part is that even though media is now mistrusted by 60% of Americans, it was still powerful enough to pull Obama through.

You're more right than you know.

If that had been the case, it would have been a helluva lot simpler to just have Rice go out there and say "Our investigation into the attack is ongoing" and leaving it at that.

It's not a damn secret, and it's not "so-called" anything.

This is something that happened long ago in a far off place. Out of sight, out of mind.

Of course we should continue with the Benghazi investigation because its the right thing to do. There will be no political benefit from it regardless of what Reid thinks.

Apparently we need some data (around 2 TB) from one of our vendors. Now, the way people normally handle data transfers that big is to drop the data onto a hard-drive, and then overnight it to wherever it needs to go (even at good business class FTP speeds we're talking a couple of days to send it over the wire).

For some reason, the vendor refuses to do so, however, and is insisting we use FTP for the transfer.

Nobody has even thought of asking Hillary Clinton why she said that Stevens was being helped when it was obvious he was being dragged?

This lie combined with the video lie is what's behind all of it -- the whole stinking cover up.

Clinton and Obama were covering for the friggin Libyan rebels! And they were covering for Al Qaeda!

It was all just about a blasphemous video. The libyans are nice people and they love us. My ass.

92 "Why didn't we see much stronger and immediate pushback from CIA?"

How would we have known of this pushback from the CIA? If the CIA called up their usual contacts in the press and told them that Obama was lying, who would have told us about it?

The press made it clear from the very start that they were not going to report anything about Libya or Egypt that was damaging to the Obama. Would you risk your CIA career to leak information to these people, knowing firsthand how deeply they'd aligned themselves with the President's campaign?

Actually, the Libyans (as a rule) do like us. Reading those Benghazi documents, it's pretty clear that, like for a while in Iraq, the people who didn't like us were "foreigners."

It's just that the locals were more afraid of the "foreigners" (that is: terrorists) than they were of us.

acceptable alternative to Rice.

I think you nailed it.

I'd love to hear a GOP point out what O is doing. Reveal the tactic and neutralize it. There are ways to do it without making a flat-out accusation (for which there is usually no smoking gun proof).

Repeat this strategy enough and some of the public will start to catch on. That the GOP does not speak out forcefully against
the tactics and abuses of the O administration is as astounding as it is sad.

176 They weren't all that military, but they certainly turned out to be damn good warriors.

I dunno about warrior. I suspect I could do that if I had to. Generaling is a different matter though.

Of course, George Washington lost pretty well all of his battles in the French and Indian war, and the Continental Congress chose him to lead the Army anyway, and that seems to have worked out.

177 I work at a major site of American infrastructure. Lets just say megawatts out the ass. This past 9/11 me and a coworker accessed the site as we do on a regular basis.

We were greeted at the gate by our regular security guys. Except, they were armoured up in full gear including Glocks andM-4s. One guy covered our official vehicle while another checked the undercarridge with the mirror. We were cleared to enter and were greeted by first name by the guards. Just doing their jobs but, they were prepared for jihadi tomfoolery. Why wasn't Ben Ghazi?? Did somebody forget about time zones, or leap year or Daylight savings Time??

184 So now we know that the talking points were dilluded....WHO CARES.... WHO GAVE THE ORDER TO STAND DOWN???? I don't care if Rice was accurate, Obama still knew that it was a terrorist attack from the beginning.... the distraction is working and everyone is falling in line.... nothing sticks with this guy

185 Barack Obama is a good man, a decent man, a man you shouldn't be afraid of. I can't think of one really wrong thing in his life that he's done. He's just a little out of his depth with this economic stuff, and I believe that's the only issue in this election.

Agree, I've been thinking we're headed towards another WW since about 2009 or 2010. The worldwide economic problems including our massive debt, high unemployment and O's continuous damage, the Europe and mideast instability, and the spread of jihadists, you mix it all up and what other option is there for a major re-set? The problems aren't going to be solved by politicians since they are the cause.

189 Give it a few more weeks, and we'll find out the Mossad warned us of this attack two months in advance.

190 "But I have to wonder, are there going to be *any* repercussions to this?
It's a coverup of the highest order, way worse than the whole Valerie
Plame bullshit."

No, there will be no repercussions. Because the media will bury this deep: no Woodwards or Bernsteins will be digging into this story. No, they'll stick to the stuff that *really* matters, like Sarah Palin's emails and Mitt Romney's tax return.

191 One thing I'm curious about is why Amb Stevens would go to Benghazi on 9/11 when he of all people knew how bad the security situation was there, and with so little protection. (I don't mean the purpose of his visit, separate issue).

He'd been expressing his fears and asking for more security for months. So from the standpoint of his own personal safety, what could possibly make him agree to going to Benghazi on 9/11?

Did he have a reason to believe he would be safe? (really?....on 9/11?....with AQ in the area?...NOTHING could have convinced me it would be safe if I were in his shoes.) What legitimate or illegitimate business could not have waited until 9/12, one more day?

193 I'm not religious, but the "science" crowd (in quotations because most people who profess to adhering to reason and science in fact do neither and are just as dogmatic about what must be accepted and not questioned as religious people) has become such assholes and bigots that i really, really don't want to be associated with them at all.
