Report: FBI Benghazi Survivor Interviews Delivered to Senate Intel Committee

Kerry Picket

(Excerpt)

A source told CBS News that FBI transcripts of interviews with Benghazi survivors were turned over to the Senate Intelligence Committee on Thursday........

The documents that came from the White House is the second set to be sent to Congress. The initial set of documents related to the attack were considered “insufficient” due to massive redactions....

The documents that were sent on Thursday had fewer redactions. They show that e-mail correspondence reveal “talking points” that were sent around the White House, the FBI, and the Justice Department. Fox News reported:

Sources said the emails revealed heavy editing by then-CIA Director David Petraeus. The talking points evolved as they were passed around various intelligence and security hubs, and scrubbed of language referring to “al Qa’ida.” They also seemed to indicate an effort to paint the Sept. 11 attack as a demonstration and not a planned attack, the source said.

“The word ‘attacks’ was changed to ‘demonstration,’” the source said....

Hilarious to send redacted documents to the “Senate Intelligence Committee”. Aren’t they supposed to be the most trusted group of Senators in DC? LOL. Coverup anyone?

On Saturday night show, Judge Jeannine Pirro has been asking the survivors to contact her. I wish they would.
America needs whistleblowers.

What is left to keep secret about Benghazi? The thugs obviously knew what was going on there. Everybody knows the Who?, What?, When?, Where? And How?. The only thing missing is the Why? And that is the critical question. The Democrats have to keep that hidden, or it’s the end of their party.

Whether it was a “hit” or not, he still selfishly betrayed his country and went along with the lie then fell on his sword. That’s what’s wrong with this country. Most people at the top love themselves more.

petraeus hit himself as a way out of the Benghazi debacle. The whole mistress thing was a strategic gem. And if you don’t believe that, then you don’t know petraeus. It was a masterstroke of strategy...and now you think he’s a victim? He was also the very first official to speak to the survivors...of whom there weren’t supposed to be any.
Had Ty Woods and Glen Doherty not disobeyed direct orders, there WOULDN’T be any. They were cia contractors. They worked for petraeus.
petraeus was also the first official ON THE GROUND in Benghazi after the attack.

I would normally think so, but this info came from Sharyl Attkisson. She is a rare jewel in the mainstream media. An investigative reporter who has actually been pursuing the truth about Benghazi from the beginning.

Then why would Petraeus admit the affair and resign?

Why would White Hut talking points be redacted? What’s the “national interest” at stake? Obama’s re-election and coverup of a botched 3AM phone call moment in the wake of yet another terrorist attack on his watch?

Barack Hussein Obama gave a “mission accomplished” speech to the United Nations in September of 2011. Not long after his sanctioned hit squad murdered a POW named Momar Gaddafi (Sec. of Hate Hillary Clinton chorted “WE came, WE saw, HE DIED!!”) we have bigger sh!t going on over there against us.

Incompetence or treason, he’s guilty of aiding the warcrime torture and murder of a POW head of state. “What if” Bush had done the same in absence of trial for Saddam?

And he has instilled Islamist theocratic rule across the Muddled East. The man may be a secular humanist, but he has a hard on for Islamic theocracy.

Remember when the DNCmedia were telling us that the locals were trying to SAVE our Ambassador? Getting him out of a burning building and all...

Ranks up there with media reports that Jackie Kennedy was getting out of the limo because she was running to "get help".

by massive redactions, I understand, from my small brain, to mean massive blackouts of text. It figures.

The so-called Benghazi talking points were requested by the Senate Intelligence Committee, but were so heavily redacted lawmakers sent them back and demanded another set, a source told Fox News.

Lawmakers sought the papers in order to find out why the administration repeatedly claimed the attack, which killed Ambassador Chris Stevens, a State Department employee and two former Navy SEALs, was sparked by a spontaneous protest over an anti-Islam video.

But the first batch of documents contained hundreds of pages that were of no use, the source said.

“It was so redacted that there was no information whatsoever,” said the source, who spoke to Fox on the condition they not be identified. “There were some documents that were 100 pages with every word on the page redacted. They were worthless.”

Should this be allowed to stand, there will forever be a group or groups of people whom claims to represent the People claiming the documents were redacted of information or text black out and we cannot find the truth, thus we (so our representatives shall claim) can do nothing. Cooperation is a two way street dear representatives. I am only one. I am beginning to think both sides (r&d) and the media have an agenda to keep the truth from the People. It is up to (r,d,m) republicans, democrats, and the media to prove otherwise. I have nothing to prove for I am not a representative claiming to represent the People or the Truth but I can smell a rat.

Thanks smoothsailing for the link and for the update.

I pray I counted correctly at the original link and read the comment you referenced. If I read the correct link, I have to agree with the person who wrote the comment. I do think fingerprints from both sides of the aisle are on this injustice but I do not look for anything other than what we have seen thus far to be told to the People. May I be pleasantly surprised.

I know you did not ping me for comment, so you have my apology for butting into your ping.

Congressman Jason Chaffetz (R - UT) told Breitbart News that the State Department was not allowing members of Congress to see those who survived the attack.

TREASON - continuous, pre-meditated, in-your-face, agency-abetted, media-manipulated, "representative"-enabled, ongoing...

Questions asked, answers not forthcoming. Questions not asked, answers not forthcoming.

TREASON like this republic has never seen before.

RIP Doherty, Smith, Stevens, Woods. Condolences to your families and friends.
