Former CIA Director David Petraeus stoked the controversy over the Obama administration's handling of the Libya terror attack, testifying Friday that references to "Al Qaeda involvement" were stripped from his agency's original talking points -- while other intelligence officials were unable to say who changed the memo, according to a top lawmaker who was briefed.
Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y., told Fox News that intelligence officials who testified in a closed-door hearing a day earlier, including Director of National Intelligence James Clapper and Acting CIA Director Mike Morell, said they did not know who changed the talking points. He said they went out to multiple departments, including the State Department, National Security Council, Justice Department and White House.
"To me the question right now is who changed those talking points and why. ... I'd say it was somebody in the administration had to have taken it out," King told Fox News. "That, to me, has to be pursued."

When everything is based on a lie it’s hard to keep track of the story.
....suggest Mama Jarrett knows....the little boy king must not be involved.
Who handled them? Go down the list with a meat ax.
Gee!! I’ll take a wild guess that it might be some skinny, tall black liar or his buddy JarRAT.
Why the need for any “talking points” in the first place?? I don’t understand why “talking points” have become part of anything. How about just the truth about whatever.
The only thing better than a spontaneous protest would have to be a spontaneously changing intel memo. I take that back. A ‘spontaneously combusting pResident’ would be a lot better.
Before anyone says the obvious:
We must be patient....
Things move slowly and carefully when you are working on matters of the State.....
I find it hard to believe Obama doesn’t know who changed the intel.
Reminds me of Craig Livingstone, back from the Clinton years who got
those 900 FBI Files. When he was fired, nobody knew who hired him.
What a sham.
Exactly! The fact that nobody knows means it’s Barack Hussein Obama and everyone is scared to say that it was him.
Obama said the White House gave her talking points. Blame him.
I want them to get to the bottom of why no help was sent and who ordered the seals to “stand down”. Why did they watch it in real time and not help. Has this part been forgotten?
I basically don’t believe anything anyone in the government has to say about ANYTHING!
Obama is responsible regardless of who in his admin or under his command actually issued the order. Obama failed in his duty to defend our soil and our people from terrorist attack. And he lied to the people, to the congress and to the entire world to cover up his incompetence and dereliction of duty (and possibly much more if they really were using that facility to criminally run guns, hold prisoners, etc).
unable? No more like unwilling.
the wont tell to protect obamer
What were the CIA doing in Ben Ghazi and who told them to do it?
The buck stops with the Marxist.
He can deny and jive talk all he wants.
He’s the CIC, like he loves to remind us.
It happened on his watch.
HE LIED. Rice Lied. He and Hitlery LIED in that video they both made that cost taxpayers $70K.
