Petraeus Testifies That He Knew Benghazi Was Terrorism Immediately But CIA Info Was Changed?
Jan Morgan ^ | 11.16.2012 | Jan Morgan

For two hours, David Patraeus testified before lawmakers today. The most pertinent information from that testimony was this: the information and talking points intelligence turned over to the White House regarding the Libya attack, were CHANGED after they were handed over to the White House.

The one question that has not been answered is WHO MADE THESE CHANGES BEFORE THEY WERE HANDED TO RICE for release? Whoever made this change is responsible for the dispersal of UNTRUTH to the American people and the world regarding the motives behind the attack.

Petraeus testified in a closed-door hearing Friday morning that his agency determined immediately after the Sept. 11 Libya attack that “Al Qaeda involvement” was suspected — but the line was taken out in the final version circulated to administration officials, according to a top lawmaker who was briefed. Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y., who spoke to reporters after Petraeus testified before the House Intelligence Committee, indicated he and other lawmakers still have plenty of questions about the aftermath of the attack.

That is awesome.

If we had an honest media, this information alone would hand Obama on his petard.

V. Jarrett handles the WH smokescreen, no doubt.

Patraeus himself previously stated it was caused by the Video in testimony. Were his previous comments edited as he spoke them ?

So Al Queda raising the flag over the American embassy in Egypt was just because of the protest over the video, is still a valid talking point?

Did creating this false talking point of a video causing these “protest” enflame the rest of the arab world? An unintended consequece by whom ever changed CIA talking points?

Was Petreas being blackmailed to shut up?

Everything was supposed to be hunky dory over there, just gentle freedom fighters holding hands and singing Kumbaya.

We knew it was BS, hopefully everyone will know it now.

maybe..the problem here is, Petraeus is now in a trick bag.
The focus will be: if he knew immediately, and he knew the terrorist point was removed, why did he parrot the WH bs in the beginning ?

They'll forget about trying trying to find out who removed\ordered the removal of the terrorist aspect from the original talking point.

Which means the WH also hung Susan Rice out to dry...and she is getting hammered for it.

Reminds me of when the allegations against Clinton first surfaced, Cabinet heads, Albright,Shalala,Daley stood before television cameras in the White House driveway and said they believed the charges were false — based on what Clinton had just told them.

Breathtaking....and nobody will be held accountable.

“why did he parrot the WH bs in the beginning?”

His CIC was telling him to under the threat of blackmail?

Yet peter king the house republican said he didn’t recall petraeus saying originally it was a terrorist attack. Peter check your notes instead of recalling. Republicans are so lame.

I would like to know if anyone asked the General if he was pressured or blackmailed at any step of the way.

They didn't turn a damn thing over to the White House. It is a building. They turned over to a person or persons. WHO?!?
