    Turns out the press got played again by Republicans. Jake Tapper has the smoking gun of the original email from the Obama administration which differs significantly from the “leaked emails” ABC ran with.

    In an exclusive for CNN, Tapper reveals that CNN has the original email sent by a top Obama aide, regarding the administration’s reaction to the Benghazi attacks. Tapper reported, “The actual email differs from how sources characterized it to two different media organizations.”

    “The actual email from then-Deputy National Security Adviser for Strategic Communications Ben Rhodes appears to show thath womever (sic) leaked it did so in a way that made it appear that the White House primarily concerned with the State Department’s desire to remove references and warnings about specific terrorist groups so as to not bring criticism to the department,” Tapper concludes (my bold).

    The email was sent on Friday, September 14, 2012, at 9:34 p.m. and was obtained by CNN from a U.S. government source. Ironically, the email points out that there is a “ton of wrong information” coming from Congress and people who are not particularly informed (waving hello to Congressional Republicans and Mitt Romney):

    “There is a ton of wrong information getting out into the public domain from Congress and people who are not particularly informed. Insofar as we have firmed up assessments that don’t compromise intel or the investigation, we need to have the capability to correct the record, as there are significant policy and messaging ramifications that would flow from a hardened mis-impression.

    “We can take this up tomorrow morning at deputies.”

    Read the full email here.

    Tapper notes how ABC and the Weekly Standard covered the leaked emails, which were “paraphrased” “inaccurately” and “inventing the notion” that the White House tried to protect the State Department:
    Whoever provided those quotes and paraphrases did so inaccurately, seemingly inventing the notion that Rhodes wanted the concerns of the State Department specifically addressed. Nuland, particularly, had expressed a desire to remove mentions of specific terrorist groups and CIA warnings about the increasingly dangerous assignment. Rhodes put no emphasis at all in his email on the State Department’s concerns.

    Previous reporting also misquoted Rhodes as saying the group would work through the talking points at the deputies meeting on Saturday, September 15, when the talking points to Congress were finalized. While the previously written subject line of the email mentions talking points, Rhodes only addresses misinformation in a general sense.

    Tapper condemned the leaker as having the agenda to make the White House look like they were protecting the State Department.

    Ah looky, the "conspiracy" to make Obama "look bad" just keeps growing despite all the damming facts that are coming down like an avalanche on his administration. This op/ed says so!

    the poster got his big scoop from what looks like the nuttiest lefty site I've seen in a while. But given that, it bounced to an ABC site that quoted Jonathan Karl where he said ...

    The differences in the two versions are being taken by some as evidence that my source sought to intentionally mislead about the extent of State Department involvement in changing the talking points. The version I obtained makes specific reference to the State Department, while the version reported by CNN references only “all of the relevant equities” and does not single out State.

    But there’s another important note here that touches on State Department involvement and shows that the portrait remains far from complete. The subject line of the e-mail, according to CNN, was “Re: Revised HPSCI Talking Points for Review.”


    Which took the entire puff of air out of the sails ... but it doesn't really matter since only one person and that nutty site thinks it was anything to begin with.

    Yeah, kinda hard for even Media Matters or Think Progress as well to put out some material even before they know what Obama is going to say. Can't be denying before it happens. U knows.

    Bottom line is, in spite of all the republicons efforts to discredit and smear Hillary, she is now polling exactly where she was in early March at 52%.
    HA!

    The ones you keep ignoring in dozens of threads day in and day out? The ones you keep sticking your virtual fingers in your virtual ears and saying NANANANANAN I CAN'T HEAR YOU as you stamp your feet about? That would be several hundred post now, but I like how you have no clue about any of it. You could replace Carney with that level of command of material you have spent weeks reading and arguing about, never once meeting a fact you could not dodge duck run dismiss or hide from. But boony for you for finding this latest op/ed addition to the conspiracy to make Obama look bad. As if he needed any help in that department whatsoever.

    So it all comes down to more GOP dirty political tricks. Why am I not surprised.

    Sounds like we need to investigate Issa, who appears to have engaged in illegal activities.
