    Benghazi Talking points went through 12 revisions at State Dept.

    When it became clear last fall that the CIA’s 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.

    “Those talking points originated from the intelligence community. They reflect the IC’s best assessments of what they thought had happened,” Carney told reporters at the White House press briefing on November 28, 2012. “The White House and the State Department have made clear that the single adjustment that was made to those talking points by either of those two institutions were changing the word ‘consulate’ to ‘diplomatic facility’ because ‘consulate’ was inaccurate.”

    Now it turns out that they were actually the product of some deputy meeting where the administration decided to lie.

    Drip, Drip, Drip.

    In the full article is this gem:

    In an email to officials at the White House and the intelligence agencies, State Department spokesman Victoria Nuland took issue with including that information because it “could be abused by members [of Congress] to beat up the State Department for not paying attention to warnings, so why would we want to feed that either? Concerned …”
    So obviously, nothing to see here... just heaving editing of the information for purely political reasons...

    After the "red line" statement regarding Syria, does this really surprise anyone?

    Talking Points Underwent 12 Revisions, Scrubbed of Terror Reference

    Obama's story keeps falling apart and now even ABC is on this. So much for the White House story that Rice's Sunday show appearances were just giving honest information she got from intelligence agencies.


    "When it became clear last fall that the CIA’s 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.


    White House emails reviewed by ABC News suggest the edits were made with extensive input from the State Department. The edits included requests from the State Department that references to the Al Qaeda-affiliated group Ansar al-Sharia be deleted as well references to CIA warnings about terrorist threats in Benghazi in the months preceding the attack.

    And even more annoying (and confirming MSM is in the Dem's back pocket):

    "There is something called Benghazi going on," said Myers. "And I think the Democrats now are starting to worry about it. I started--I got calls from a number of Democrats yesterday trying to undermine Greg Hicks's testimony, saying he wasn't demoted, etc. So I think they feel that some damage was done by those three witnesses on Wednesday."

    Cokie Roberts on Morning Joe this morning read some portion of Jonathan Karl's reporting on Victoria Nuland that went something like 'these modifications were done with the knowledge and supervision of the highest levels of this building'. Her building being the State department, highest level COULD include Hillary. Didn't she testify not knowing about this previously? I've been looking for a source for this but apparently it is not available. Roberts stated that this story is 'breaking currently' which may explain this.
