The White House made only small, factual edits to the CIA's initial intelligence assessment on the September attack on Americans in Benghazi, deputy national security adviser Ben Rhodes said Saturday.
"We were provided with points by the intelligence community that represented their assessment," Rhodes said aboard Air Force One en route to Asia. "The only edit made by the White House was the factual edit about how to refer to the facility.

4 died that night. 40 others left to die.Obama did nothing to help them and that is a FACT!
murderers attempt a rewrite, barely..........substituted terroist attack for demonstration
A ha ha ...
One man’s terrorist is another man’s demonstrator/freedom fighter.
Note the word game here - “altered” - when in fact the critical part was what they omitted. And omission is the most powerful form of lie.
I'm fed up with the White House whores treating me as if I have zero intelligence. These people, beginning with the head of the snake (Obozo) need to be removed from office.
Lies Lies Lies Lies Lies. Our country is going down fast.
The WH could easily have sent the report back to be changed the way they wanted and still be making this same statement.
Mr President, your protestations are fraudulent. All of the documentation and facts produced so far back up Petraeus.
You can lie all you want, until you produce answers, YOU LIED!
Everything here is a lawyerly word-game.
As Bill Clinton said, it depends on what the meaning of “is” is.
SO the White House DID edit the CIA's language.
Drip......... drip...... drip....... drip.....
Now we have the ‘spontaneously changing intel memo’ to go along with the ‘spontaneous protest.’ I guess I will just hope that 0coward will spontaneously combust.
We have become a 3rd world country so quickly
factual edit = LIE
Now there's a precision word. Not.
How big must deceit be before it is criminal if it was used to hide the incompetence of a corrupt communists organization.
But Rhodes said that language never made it into the assessment that the White House and State Department received, and that any edit happened before it reached them.
Oh, I get it. The WH put the intel report on its website and let the Twitter community edit it. Tomorrow's talking point.
did the fool in the w h ever think that by admitting “they” barely edited the report that they confirmed they lied? think V. jarrett had anything to do with this?
Hardly worth discussing, the MSM will say.
