Skip to comments.Intel officials unable to say who changed CIA talking points on Libya, lawmaker says
Posted on 11/17/2012 4:30:15 PM PST by Ernest_at_the_Beach
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.
Now why would he change the notes??? Can you say election where the CIC refused SECURITY to our people in Libya??
Reminds me of Hillary’s testimony in the 90’s. “I’m sorry, I can’t recall.”
So, Susan Rice just needs to say who she got the info from and work backwards. That is unless, it would lead to their idol bho.
"I dont know nuthin bout birthin no terrorists."
Blame it on Windows XP.
Anyone wanting on or off this ping list, please advise.
THAT little detail, you want answers to that item of some interest???/ssssssssssarc.
The very thing that is of utmost importance and they are fawning over the affair and who changed the memo???
In another 3 months they will get around to that.
Maybe that was asked as well, and we just have to wait. Can't stand it no more, BUT I WILL NOT GIVE IT UP. lol
I’m waiting for someone to announce that the whole change in the memo was a typographical error. So sorry, it was just a computer typing mistake.
"plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose"
Don't know. But have seen and heard from most of them. You voted. Deflection, yes. Results, no. Thus more begin to take a bended knee. Time grows short.
The lines edited from the CIA doc are sitting on a beach with the missing 18 minutes from the Nixon Tapes.
Jarret comes to mind. I doubt the pres had anything to do with it. He just takes orders, and wonders around his office when not on the gulf courses or flying about pissing tax dollars away on fuel.
“Staffing out” documents such as this is conducted by the documents going out for comments to the various Agencies and Offices as email attachments. Comments and proposed changes come back by email responses. There are electronic records of all these communications (there are even electronic records of the “phony email accounts” that members of the Obama regime use to evade legal requirements for document retention.
There is no way that Obama couldn’t know, or find out within 1/2 hour, how the talking points “evolved”. They are willfully playing ignorant. The gullible will believe them and other supporters will pretend to believe them.
Subpoenas are needed to root out the liars ASAP. I’m sure that attempts at record destruction are happening at this very minute. Any true patriots working for the US Government or Government contractors supporting them would do well to make copies of these communications and secure them.

If nobody fesses up, blame the Food Stamp President. The buck (adjusted for inflation at 43 cents) stops with him. Every thing that happens on his watch are his accolades or fault!
Shows how inept the Intel officers are: they are unable to even trace who changed the wording.
Four more years with no adults in charge.
Put the whole Chicago crowd on the lie detector and while your at it ask how many dogs, cats and little children they fornicating with.
The memo was carved on a watermelon and Gallagher got past the SS and smashed it.
Shouldn’t the question be who decided to abandon those 30 Americans at the consulate? Or who murdered those four Americans through neglect?
So when is “Hillary and Panetta’s Excellent Adventure” in Australia going to end so they can come home?
Marvelous. We have a government so inept, that it cannot even identify who changes its own talking points. And if they cannot even identify who changes the governments own talking points, how in the world can they ever guarantee that anything a government official ever states, is even accurate ?
Good grief. They’re all acting like little six year olds denying they ate the cookies despite the cookie bag is empty.
Well, the wording in the headline is "unable to say" not "nobody knows". That makes your conclusion all the more probable.
