White House says did not heavily edit talking points on Benghazi

(Reuters) - The White House did not heavily alter talking points about the attacks on a U.S. diplomatic mission in Libya, an official said on Saturday.
"If there were adjustments made to them within the intelligence community, that's common, and that's something they would have done themselves," Ben Rhodes, deputy national security adviser, told reporters. "The only edit ... made by the White House was the factual edit as to how to refer to the facility."
After a closed-door hearing with former CIA Director David Petraeus on Friday, Republican Representative Peter King said that unclassified talking points prepared by the CIA for use by lawmakers about the September 11 attack where the U.S. ambassador to Libya was killed originally pointed specifically to al Qaeda involvement.

The meaning of “is” is ?
Does anyone believe anything that comes from the White House anymore?
Looks like Petraeus' testimony got to them.
Err.. Al Qaeda? Angry mob spontaneous riot? Yes, it is kind of a big difference.
The headline of the story is the only thing most people read. This headline states as fact the White House talking point. Typical.
re: “The only edit ... made by the White House was the factual edit as to how to refer to the facility.”
And the beat (bs) goes on. . .
I didn't do it.. and you cannot prove I did.
The CIA is only part of the Ding Dong admin’s intelligence community. So who is the Ding Dong who did it? Who is the Ding Dong who thought the terrorists wouldn’t know we were on to them if we pretended some video no one had ever seen was the reason terrorists attacked and killed an unguarded US ambassador?
Impeach Obama.....he is a traitor to the USA.....and....a hater of the state of Israel!!!! And......while you are at it.....how about undertaking the recall of certain Democrat senators that are exposed to real recall, and replace them with conservatives across the board. Start after January 20th...when Hitler (Obama) takes the POTUS second term oath. America....the Facist/Communist state. Freedom & Liberty are dead!!! America asleep at the wheel!!!
Yeaaaaaah. They had two months to come up with with a bs story line, and this is it.
The republicans need to get a name, and start turning the screws.
No more answers in the passive voice. “Intelligence was provided.”
WHO provided the damn cover story?
My money's on Tom Donilon who is in intelligence, but also in the White House.
Heavily is not is heavily not.
Its about the meme blaming the video. Who inserted the story line about the video? Who decided to blame America and our ignorance of islam for the killing of the Americans? Pretty simple. Identify that person or persons and have them tried for treason and executed on pay per view. Proceeds of course to go to the families of the speed bumps along the way victims.
The delusion is in full swing.
“The White House” is a liar.
The Pinnochio administration should be in prison...have their property seized and then deported. All of them.
And that means President Obama. An ATTACK on 9-11 and he's worried about the name of the facility hit??
And when I read between the lines, I would say that it was edited by the whitehouse (Obama) more than once.
“It was heavily. It was not heavily.”
