CBS News: Office of the Director of National Intelligence Edited al Qaeda References from CIA Benghazi Attack Talking Points


BENGHAZIGATE … The mad scramble by Obama White House and lapdog media to find a scape-goat.

CBS News is reporting that it was he Office of the Director of National Intelligence (DNI) that cut the  ”al Qaeda” and “terrorism” references from the Benghazi, Libya consulate attacks that left four Americans dead including Ambassador Stevens. The same James Clapper DNI that has previously denied making any such edits. However, as aptly stated by the Ace of Spades, Clapper is the perfect Obama appointee stooge to make such political changes to the Benghazi talking points to scrub any references of terrorism at the request of the Obama White House.

CBS News has learned that the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (DNI) cut specific references to “al Qaeda” and “terrorism” from the unclassified talking points given to Ambassador Susan Rice on the Benghazi consulate attack – with the agreement of the CIA and FBI. The White House or State Department did not make those changes.

There has been considerable discussion about who made the changes to the talking points that Rice stuck to in her television appearances on Sept. 16 (video), five days after the attack that killed American Ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens, and three other U.S. nationals.

As stated at Michelle Malkin, the inevitable conclusion of the editing mystery is that it was “Colonel Mustard in the study with the candlestick.” Here is the insanity and obvious politicization of the Benghazi talking points. Supposedly the DNI says it struck the references to Al Qaeda from the talking points because that connection was “too tenuous.” However, they added references to the YouTube video and a spontaneous protest, when there was no evidence at all that indicated this and to the contrary, there was evidence debunking this narrative.

America, the buck stops with who? One really has to question why Barack Obama is not more upset and does not want to find answers as to Benghazi. Four Americans were murdered and it as if he could care less.

      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 her talk show circuit. Obama in his speech at the UN. Hillary Clinton in a public statement.

      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

      US Ambassador Rice defends comments on Benghazi attack
      Published November 21, 2012

      U.S. Ambassador Susan Rice is defending her early account of the attack that killed the U.S. ambassador to Libya and three other Americans in Benghazi, saying that her statements were made based on initial information from the intelligence community.

      Rice, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, has been under fire after she appeared on television five days after the Sept. 11 attacks and said in several interviews that the strikes on U.S. outposts were “spontaneous” and were sparked by outrage over an anti-Islamic video. …

      The focus has fallen on Rice because she is a longtime White House insider and is believed to be President Barack Obama’s first choice to replace Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who is not expected to stay on during his second term.

      Under the Obama administration muslims are incapabale of terrorism.

      The Ft. Hood murders was “workplace” violence committed by a muslim who cried “allah akbar!” whereas the Batman movie shooting was “terrorism.”

      Four years from now, Americans will be brainwashed into believing the airplanes that crashed into the WTC flew there all by themselves…or worse, it never happened at all.
