Posted on 05/10/2013 5:05:20 AM PDT by Perdogg
When it became clear last fall that the CIAs now discredited Benghazi talking points were flawed, the White House said repeatedly the documents were put together almost entirely by the intelligence community, but White House documents reviewed by Congress suggest a different story.
ABC News has obtained 12 different versions of the talking points that show they were extensively edited as they evolved from the drafts first written entirely by the CIA to the final version distributed to Congress and to U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Susan Rice before she appeared on five talk shows the Sunday after that attack.

Never underestimate the power of a 50 pound tub of chocolate sent over by the WH.
I will always believe that his (Petraeus) demise was only related to Benghazi, not to the affair.
“Nuland objected to naming the terrorist groups because “we don’t want to prejudiced the investigation”.
Does that sound like they are going to say they altered the pages to protect the investigation? Is cbs helping them?
The Hill online (linked by Drudge) has Lisa Meyers at NBC saying Democrats are calling her to discredit the testimony of Hicks. She says it seems the hearing has had an impact and the Dems are feeling it.
Yes, my guess would be the only reason ABC is jumping on the bandwagon is to muddy the waters and place blame anywhere but on Hillary or Obama, think about it, what democratic candidate has a chance in 2016 besides Hillary?
So letting them blame a video isn’t prejudicing the investigation, oh, yes it is, but in another direction, remember our military and administration and government agencies have been infiltrated by Muslims and Muslim sympathizers, you wont hear that at any hearing.
Is there a sink hole forming underneath?
Ha, he and Sharyl Attkinson will be down at 30 Rock with “will report on Benghazi for food” signs.
ABC is covering this??? THAT IS HUGE.
For the same reason there is a "witness protection program" for people who testify against the mafia.
If this goes the way of Watergate, that article will be this scandal’s “Pentagon Papers”.
link for the whipper snappers:
A 1996 article in The New York Times said that the Pentagon Papers “demonstrated, among other things, that the Lyndon Baines Johnson Administration had systematically lied, not only to the public but also to Congress, about a subject of transcendent national interest and significance”.
Him and those four other generals who suddenly were ousted over trivial 20-year-old scandals, nothing to see here (x4).
Ha, love me some Chris Plante!
ABC wakes up?
Could it be the MSM is finally waking up to the Benghazi cover up? I will be on the look out for flying pigs.
Yup. She is the newest speed bump on the block today.
Who cares if it took 24 hours? If we observed the US even ATTEMPTING to rescue our own but were too late, all would be forgiven. But, not the case.
