Rep. Peter King appeared on Fox News this morning and stated that David Petraeus testified that the original CIA talking points about Benghazzi indicated it was a terrorist act and cited al Qaeda involvement. Somewhere after leaving CIA, the talking points were changed. He did not know who changed them.
If this is an inappropriate use of Breaking News, please feel free to pull it. My sense is this is "hugh" though.
Saw that on Hannity last night. King said nobody’s able to say who altered the talking points which had included a reference to AQ.
Obama said blame him... He also said (arrogantly) that Rice went out with the info provided her by the White House. WH altered it.
Btw, pathetic display hiding behind her race and gender instead of addressing her lies.
I still think Petraeus is trying to walk a fine line between the actual truth and protecting Obama.
I’m hoping he does the right thing.
Here’s another link:
They just made a deal with the devil that they would just as soon not talk about.
Former CIA Director David 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.
“No one knows yet exactly who came up with the final version of the talking points,” he said.
What we are about to witness is a massive media blitz to explain away the contradictions and exhonerate little barry bastard boy liar-in-chief from any fecklessness, AND turn the entire effort to get the truth as a Republican political campaign. It is almost time for goin’ huntin’ to reduce the infestation of media fifth column.
Anyone wanting on or off this ping list, please advise.
Maybe we can get across the hughcynicism of this administration. I know all administrations lie and cover their mistakes, but these guys count on blind loyalty in a way that is disturbing. And it is a majority” faction of the kind that Madison warned about.
Am reminded of the song ... Nothing Else Matters
You know, that is one fugly man.
Yup. The White House did it. Try Clapper, the guy who told Petraeus to resign. Or the bungling Secretary of State. We all know that Barry does nothing but read from a TelePrompter when instructed.
Original talking points went to the White House, State Department, and National Security Council.

The graphic says it all!!!!!
Well Obama does not want to offend his Muslims buddies so this comes as a no surprise to me.
