Barack Obama White House Denies Editing Out “Terror” From Benghazi Talking Points
It all depends on what is, is … Welcome to Obama’s ‘Watergate’, only this time Americans died.
The Obama White House has denied editing the talking points regarding the terror attack in Benghazi, Libya that killed four Americans including Ambassador Stevens. However, this contradicts former CIA director David Petraeus’ remarks that he had made behind closed doors to a Congressional committee. Petraeus told lawmakers that from the onset of the investigation about the September 11 attack, US intelligence pointed to al Qaeda affiliates. So who made the edits, who insisted the edits be made and who signed off on them? The edits would have been made after the statements had left the CIA for review by the Defense and State departments, ultimately landing at the White House. Sorry, but there has to be a simple paper trial of how this document changed and who changed and approved the changes. Barack Obama promised transparency and it is about time he is held accountable for such.
Obama continues to laugh at “We the People” as he played politics with the death of four brave souls as America was too busy taxing the rich
The White House yesterday denied it edited talking points about the terrorist attack that killed the American ambassador to Libya — contradicting remarks made a day earlier by disgraced ex-CIA chief David Petraeus.
“The only edit that was made by the White House and also by the State Department was to change the word ‘consulate’ to the word ‘diplomatic facility,’ since the facility in Benghazi was not formally a consulate,” Deputy National Security Adviser Ben Rhodes told reporters aboard Air Force One.
“Other than that, we were guided by the points that were provided by the intelligence community. So I can’t speak to any other edits that may have been made.”
One would think that a President, a Commander in Chief would be furious and demand answers to who edited talking points that put out a false narrative when four Americans died. However, not when it was made political and had to be covered up until after an election. In Obama’s world, the ends justify the means.
Who are you going to believe America? Think Obama’s WH did not edit the talking points or have a hand in taking the “terror” out? This from the same Obama Administration that changed the “WAR ON TERROR” to read as an “OVERSEAS CONTINGENCY OPERATION”.

Getting the Obama administration to take responsibility for anything that makes them look bad is like trying to find gold at the end of the rainbow.
The only way out is to have the House of Represenatives produce articles of impeachment and then search for the truth. This guy cannot govern, all he can do is spend money to buy votes.

…. you made the choice too easy
what did you expect from an admin who is still lying about Fast and Furious. What’s another lie amongst hundreds.
I bet they would have like to edit the speech he gave today. After hearing him say IIIIIII, and lecturing them on how our government works, and telling them as the Commander in Chief, he decides what the military does, he sounded a lot like Joe.
The congress needs to keep digging until enough of the truth is found about the Benghazi affair.
This order or denial of assistance came from Barry himself.
I have said it before that Barry is actually a muslim who lied his way into the White House. He will work hard to finish making the USA into a third world nation if we leave him in office.
Bottom Line! The implication is that the Administration shifted the focus of blame for the deaths in Libya from terrorism to a producer of a amateur anti-Islamic youtube clip. Rice in talk shows. Obama in his speech at the UN.
Top GOP lawmaker pressures Clapper to explain altered talking points on Libya
Published November 20, 2012
Rep. Adam Schiff of California, a senior Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, told Fox News the timeline reinforces his view the changes were driven by security considerations, not politics.
“To anyone who was listening, it was clear from General Petraeus and other intelligence officials who testified last week that the talking points were amended to protect classified sources of information and were not subject to any political spin by the White House or ambassador to the U.N.,” Schiff said. …
John Bolton, a U.S. ambassador to the U.N. in the George W. Bush administration, said Clapper must now explain the genesis of the administration’s initial statements, which blamed a video for sparking a demonstration that was hijacked by terrorists, when the available and immediate raw intelligence strongly supported a pre-meditated terrorist attack
