Two stories on Benghazi hit today, with the second one intending to cancel out the first, or make it radioactive so as deny it any traction.
Here’s the first, from CBS News:
(CBS News) 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 killed American Ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens, and three other U.S. nationals.
Okay, if you tell me that the DNI scrubbed various problematic wording, yeah, I can maybe believe that. Maybe. And if you believe that, then you ALSO need to believe they (and NOT the White House or State Department) swapped out the “problematic” wording for the “YouTube Video/Random Uprising” lie, which I guess is still possible…. although I don’t believe that for a second.
What ISN’T possible/probable/plausible is that the primary beneficiary, Barack H. Obama, wasn’t informed about all of this.
To which I say: “take your bag of crazy somewhere else: we ain’t buyin’ here”.
