    White House Contacted Youtube DURING Benghazi Attack.[W:324]

    White House Contacted YouTube During Benghazi Attack, Darrell Issa Says

    A still-classified State Department e-mail says that one of the first responses from the White House to the Benghazi attack was to contact YouTube to warn of the "ramifications" of allowing the posting of an anti-Islamic video, according to Rep. Darrell Issa, the Republican chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee.

    The memo suggests that even as the attack was still underway - and before the CIA began the process of compiling talking points on its analysis of what happened - the White House believed it was in retaliation for a controversial video.
    It would appear that the White House was aware of this video before these attacks even began. I'm not sure what this means in the greater scheme of things. Anyone care to weigh in?

    There were pleas for extra securlity at the compound for days before the attack....hummmm.

    All this means is for whatever they were doing over there, they had a predetermined excuse.

    It was really popular before Benghazi. There's no conspiracy here, lol.

    BTW: Has anyone watched the video/movie? It's a comedy.

    Re: White House Contacted Youtube DURING Benghazi Attack.

    Issa's got a point - he claims the WH settled on a narrative before the attack was even over... Issa's hinting that blaming the video was planned while the attack was still occurring ---- without an investigation, without more information like this WH has shown to prefer. It's curious but as a piece of information I don't have enough context to know what if anything it means.

He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    I think that helps to prove that the WH really did believe the video had something to do with the attacks...just like they said. And according to the CIA the video could still be the reason for the attack. So until they catch those responsible for the attacks....no one, not even Issa with all his ridiculous wasteful hearings and investigations can say what the motive for the attack was.

    And what do you offer to base that on?

    How popular and with whom?

    In fact, the video had had like a hundred and some hits before the White House went ape **** on it.

    Please, while denying there's any scandal, it is helpful to stick to the facts. The reason this "non-scandal" is hanging on exactly like Watergate, is that also like Watergate,m every statement from the White Out House is a lie and every post from it's defenders is bull****.

    When you start substantiating what you claim, when there are no more revelations, such as the White House alerting You Tube, then I will start to wonder if there really is anything.

    So far, Obama and guys like you keep re-enforcing my suspicion that Barrack Hussein Obama is in this up to his little pen and his phone and has blood on his hands. You guys are even worse than the lying Nixon supporters who claimed for months "Watergate is just a Democrat fiction."
