Under mounting pressure from tri-partisan demands of Republicans Democrats and the MSM … Obama Administration does late afternoon document dump of Benghazi emails.
As reported at CNN, the Obama Administration released more than 100 emails late Wednesday afternoon in an attempt to stop the political hemorrhaging. Obama and his minions have blinked. The AP, yes the same AP that Obama’s DOJ secretly obtained phone records sparking yet another scandal, reported that the White House had until now declined to make the documents public and had let congressional investigators review the documents without making copies. Some how the White House thinks that editing the emails to release a narrative on Benghazi to the point that the taking points became a complete fabricated lie is ok.

The White House released more than 100 pages of e-mails on Wednesday in a bid to quell critics who say President Barack Obama and his aides played politics with national security following the deadly attack on the U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya.
The exchanges detailing discussions between top Obama administration officials from multiple agencies suggest the CIA took the lead in developing talking points to describe the attack last September 11 that killed Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans.
Those talking points, which were requested by members of the House Intelligence Committee, were originally drafted by the CIA. The lawmakers had requested unclassified information they could use in media interviews. Following the original drafting of talking points, CIA analysts made a handful of significant changes, according to administration sources.
Isn’t it ironic that David Axelrod had stated that the Obama White House should release the Benghazi emails and puff, there they are after all this time. It is simply incredible that Democrats continue to make this political and about maintaining power rather than the deaths of four Americans who were put in harms way without the proper security and then left to die as no help came to save them. David Axelrod, Obama apologist , now turn Hillary Clinton defender, stated on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” that Republicans are trying to bully Hillary Clinton out of running for president by attacking her on Benghazi, Libya. For Democrats like Axelrod, politics is their religion and they will do and say anything to maintain their power, even when it is so obvious that the State Department made major errors that resulted in the death of four Americans, including Ambassador Stevens. For Democrats, its not about the truth, its not about learning from this so that it never happens again, its not about holding those accountable … its about protecting Hillary Clinton for 2016. Sad, truly sad as four brave Americans were left to die.
UPDATE I: From the PJ Tatler, “Well, the White House has just made things even worse. The released emails begin on September 14, three days after the attack. By then, both President Obama and Secretary of State Clinton had been blaming a movie for two days.”
