White House says did not heavily edit talking points on Benghazi
ABOARD AIR FORCE ONE | Sat Nov 17, 2012 11:25am EST
(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.

I don’t care where she is....Right now...she belongs here!!
I’m going to go with “completely edited”.
Semantics is the last refuge of the Chicago Way.
IOW, yes the White House did. Thanks Sub-Driver.

They still argue and sit there and do not go after the terrorists because it helps the government to look qualified when these nincompoops have no clue what to do.
Obama expects the State Department to protect him and vice versa, and it will not happen, because it is like PUBLIC SCHOOLS! The teacher is all too happy not to have to show ability to students who do not want to study in the first place. So it is a big perv party on the back of taxpayers
They are playing word games. Intelligence community put together info for the WH. They call WH and tell them what they have and the WH instructs them to change the narrative. The intelligence community rewrite the narrative and submit. The WH didn’t edit or rewrite anything, right? with dems it takes forever and sometimes never to get to the bottom of anything because they are masters of deception
Hillary has dropped off the face of the earth which shows guilt in my opinion. Maybe BO told Rice if she would go out and lie for him, then she could be Sec of State and it’s not quite working out the way he envisioned-like everything else.
The real story is that Obama failed to properly protect the Americans in Benghazi.
That's true. But exposing the person who pushed the cover story will ultimately lead us to Obama. It's obvious that he gave the order to hide the role of Al Qaida. If that can be established, we will then have partially established his motivation for failing to defend the ambassador. This terrorist act was an embarrassment to his Libyan "velvet" revolution strategy.
President “Not-my-fault” blames the dog for eating his homework again.
I’m reminded of the quote by President Lincoln, “No man has a good enough memory to be a successful liar”.
And why on Earth would these morons try to incite more violence and terrorism by blaming a video that very few people even saw ? These people simply cannot be trusted to protect us. Expect massive terrorist attacks within the US when Israel attacks Iran.
They just took out the words: “terrorist”, “al Queda” and “planned attack”.
Now why don’t you little racists shut your ugly faces and go pay your taxes? Your government is broke. :)
Yes, but it did edit.
We just lied a little bit!!!
How did Obama have a ready-made excuse in his back pocket (blaming a totally obscure video (trailer by the way!) ) the moment this happened.
Probably done by the same person who came up with the “talking points” Monica Lewinsky gave to Linda Tripp.
LOL! Excellent! On top of that, they have to lie on about five different points here, so heads must be spinning at the WH right about now.
I want to see them start rolling, personally. Starting with the one at the top.
Rep. Joe Wilson was right: “YOU LIE!!!!”
Let’s eat grandma!
Let’s eat, grandma!
