    And the source of the lie is really irrelevant.

    The Obama administration knew it wasn't a "protest" hours after the attack started.

    So why did they perpetuate it ?

    The second post refers to the Benghazzi attack.

    Wow ! Ben Rhodes WAS refering to Cairo and Benghazzi wasn't he ?

    In that E-mail he called those two attacks "proetest" and wanted Rice to underscore that a VIDEO caused them.

    Thanks for the info
    You do realize that there are about a bazillion posts about the protests being in response to video.....

    Yeah, so how can the left keep saying why is Benghazi going on since BO's team is there trying to do something other than get killed. Since the investigation has come to a complete stand still.

    Yeah. Everybody who wants some honest answers is abnormal. That would include foreign service workers and the families of the murdered. Abnormal, according to some who's political agenda doesn't include the truth.

    That completely contradicts the congressional testimony of the former CIA director, Morell......


    "....Morell also detailed the sequence of events in which he learned that the CIA's initial assessment, that there had been a protest outside the U.S. installation and extremists had made an "opportunistic" attack. He said the assessment was made based on news and intelligence reports made in the days following the attack, and it was not until four days later, on September 15, that he received an email from the station chief saying there was no protest...."


    In the end, Morell said, it is still unclear if the YouTube video may have been part of the motivation behind the attack. Instead, he said analysts believe it could have been related to the video or revenge for the death of al Qaida leader Abu Yahya al-Libi.

    We never thought that a protest and a terrorist attack were mutually exclusive," Morell said....

    (see post #126 for link.)




    As it stands....the motivation for the attack could still have been the anti-Islamic video.

    Yea and real protest ovee the video only heated up after the WH made sure that video narrative was very publicized

    Well, for such a benign E-mail that was only refering to the US's ME Policies, the White House sure didn't want anyone to see it.

    Especially the Committee investigating the attack, which some of you have been using for months to excuse the WH's behaviour.

    It was sent but redacted and blacked out

    If it was just a statement on policy why did it take a Court Order by a Conservative non profit group to finally get it released ?

    There's going to be a special committee now, which Harry Reid called a "Partisan Circus".

    Why would he call a objective investigation a circus if it finally winds up clearing Obama's and Hillary's names ?

    After this one tho.

    Sept. 12, 6:06 p.m.: Beth Jones, the acting assistant secretary of state for the Near East, sends an email to top State Department officials that reads in part: “[T]he group that conducted the attacks, Ansar al-Sharia, is affiliated with Islamic extremists.” (An excerpt of Jones’ email was read by Rep. Trey Gowdy at the May 8, 2013, House oversight hearing.).....snip~
