Posted on 05/10/2013 7:57:41 PM PDT by topher
The White House scrambled Friday to explain newly released email excerpts that show a top State Department official pushing to water down the intelligence community's initial story-line on the Benghazi attack, as Republicans sharply challenged the administration's honesty.
With new details emerging in the Benghazi-gate controversy, the White House held a background discussion with more than a dozen news organizations. Afterward, Press Secretary Jay Carney weathered a barrage of questions from the media during an at-times awkward White House briefing -- where he tried to defend the truthfulness of his and other officials' prior claims that the initial talking points on the attack reflected the best intelligence assessment of the time.

Marine Uncle said it the right way:
Why the 180 today out of the WH? From stonewalling to talking?
That is interesting. i love ollie! I will look for a link to his thoughts on the matter.
I just don’t see Obama caring that much if AQ uses those weapons on our country or any military installation though. I know that sounds harsh, but that man is working for them all over the ME to install their caliphate it would appear.
The fact is, there IS nothing POSHITUS loves.
HE could care less about any fallout, but the DNC RATS are trying to recover their shit, and seeing Hillary possibly knocked out of 2016 by this are obviously reacting today.
DNC may be realizing that obama’s muslim loyalties run deeper than his communist/progressive loyalties. The joke may be on them. These two rabidly evil groups have worked so well together. Oh may they begin to turn on each other. I just pray they don’t finish off destroying America in the process of their power struggle with each other.
I had a vanity in Chat today that a couple of us had some fun with:
So you think the media will turn on Obama to save Hillary?
I know everyone is concerned about Hillary running, but I just don’t fear her winning that much. I don’t even know that the dem party bosses really want her, but I could be wrong. She was already damaged goods IMHO by working in Obamas administration and sucking so bad at everything she touched.
Background "discussion", huh?
More like an offer they couldn't refuse.
Boxlunch nailed it:

(and we both said we were taking off politics for the weekend! :)
Oh Hillary will turn “ what difference does it make “ to ? when she get’s caught and needs a scape goat to “ he did it, it’s all Obies fault, I was just following orders “
So many possible intrigues...you know we won’t succeed in not checking on politics and news this weekend....lol.
I am going to spend time praying for our country though. These are the most perilous times that I can recall in my lifetime for sure.
>> its all Obies fault
There are a number of dimensions to this problem that might criminally ensnare anyone else: gross negligence, dereliction of duty, obstruction of justice, collusion, perjury, false witness, manslaughter...
But, but, but, THE WATERGATE BREAK IN WAS WORSE !!! sarcasm.. ( that is ? according to liberal logic ).
The significant Leftwing faction of media is the Country’s greatest threat.
YOU ARE WRONG!
There is BLOOD in the water now!
I’m not even slightly nervous about Hitlery.
IMHO she’s such a damaged, hideous old bag of a she devil that there is no way on earth she could win an eleciton. I doubt she’d have the physical stamina or the abilibyt to functon without being drunk in public anyway. And Benghazi is going to cover her with blood she won’t be able to wash off. Her and 0bastard both. She’ll be like Lady Macbeth.
“There is no cover up here. It is a GOP witch hunt. All talks of select committees and impeachment are nonsense. There is absolute peace and joy in the White House.”
