    The Benghazi Talking Points And how they were changed to obscure the truth

    Even as the White House strove last week to move beyond questions about the Benghazi attacks of Tuesday, September 11, 2012, fresh evidence emerged that senior Obama administration officials knowingly misled the country about what had happened in the days following the assaults.

    .....doesnt get any better than this does it Zim? My, my, my.....no wonder Team Obama and the left want Benghazi to go away as fast as they can.

    Even as the White House strove last week to move beyond questions about the Benghazi attacks of Tuesday, September 11, 2012, fresh evidence emerged that senior Obama administration officials knowingly misled the country about what had happened in the days following the assaults. The Weekly Standard has obtained a timeline briefed by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence detailing the heavy substantive revisions made to the CIA’s talking points, just six weeks before the 2012 presidential election, and additional information about why the changes were made and by whom.

    Although the investigation was conducted by Republicans, leading some reporters and commentators to dismiss it, the report quotes directly from emails between top administration and intelligence officials, and it includes footnotes indicating the times the messages were sent.

    A cable sent the following day, September 12, by the CIA station chief in Libya, reported that eyewitnesses confirmed the participation of Islamic militants and made clear that U.S. facilities in Benghazi had come under terrorist attack. It was this fact, along with several others, that top Obama officials would work so hard to obscure.

    The CIA’s Office of Terrorism Analysis prepared the first draft of a response to the congressman, which was distributed internally for comment at 11:15 a.m. on Friday, September 14 (Version 1 at right). This initial CIA draft included the assertion that the U.S. government “know[s] that Islamic extremists with ties to al Qaeda participated in the attack.” That draft also noted that press reports “linked the attack to Ansar al Sharia. The group has since released a statement that its leadership did not order the attacks, but did not deny that some of its members were involved.” Ansar al Sharia, the CIA draft continued, aims to spread sharia law in Libya and “emphasizes the need for jihad.” The agency draft also raised the prospect that the facilities had been the subject of jihadist surveillance and offered a reminder that in the previous six months there had been “at least five other attacks against foreign interests in Benghazi by unidentified assailants, including the June attack against the British Ambassador’s convoy.”.....snip~

    I don't know what he knew, so I'll assume it was some dastardly thing!

    Do you think we know what he was thinking 18 hrs before the Attack on Benghazi began or had a thought on about was said on 911? While no one can actually be inside his head to know his exact thoughts.

    Do you think ones actions at the time can give insight into if an individual was aware of some major Importance or not?

    Where was Obama On Sept 9th and 10th of 2012? Do you even know? Do you even know what he was talking to the Press about During his Election on the 9th and 10th of Sept 2012?

    I am about as interested in Obama's location on Sept 10, 2012 as I am interested in Bush's location on Sept 10, 2001.

    Yeah, I can understand since that would give you exact info as to where he was at. What he was doing at the time and as well as who was around him at the time. As well what he was discussing or talking about at the time. Which WE DO KNOW that it wasn't anything on Libya or Benghazi At all.

    But we do know he more than likely he had a thought about the Release from AQ Prime when he was speaking at that Florida University on the 10th.....huh?
    Or did you think Libya and Benghazi was operating on East Coast Time?

    I'm going to Favorite that link so I can read it later -- too long right now.

    But!! How very interesting that the article is dated May 13, 2013. Weird.

    And Bush wasn't discussing aircraft crashing into New York City because it hadn't freaking happened yet. Are you seriously criticizing Obama for a lack of precognition?

    Exactly how many days ahead of Eastern Time do you think Libya is? According to Zimmer's link, the claim of responsibility from Ansar al Sharia came at 6:08pm eastern time on the 11th.

    I am less concerned right now with what he did the day before the attack, than I am the day of, and after. What strategy sessions did he and others have discussing duping the American people and covering their own actions so as not to effect the campaign.

    Right away to the deflection with Bush and whatever mistake he made.....huh? Here is an answer for that. Does two wrong make it Right? See everytime those on the left want to deflect with what Bush did that was wrong. How does this argument stop the any other wrong that comes after Bush? The Answer is.....it Doesn't. So you see in the reality of things.....the Bush deflection isn't really a good argument from the get go. 2 wrongs.....Don't make it Right.

    Are you attempting to say that you don't think.....that while out partying, Fundraising, speaking at a College University over talking points around why he should be re-elected. That for some reason.....that he forgot about 911? That while the media was throwing up Polls of him trailing or losing ground to Romney? That for some reason.....he just was not focused on so much overseas at the time? Or were you saying that his different than other human being placed into the same situation?

    Do you think he can deny AQ Prime released a Statement? Which was released 18 hrs prior to the Benghazi attack?
