    Ain't that how it always goes? Amazing.
    Like Boxer & Reid tried running that "Republicans cut security spending for Benghazi" line today in order to give the gang something to repeat.
    And they do.

    Well.....things have changed. It's not Republicans anymore.

    Reason: Three reasons Benghazi matters
    posted at 4:41 pm on May 10, 2013 by Ed Morrissey


    The final talking points eventually given to Rice reflected State’s concerns, but Carney told us that it’s all on the up-and-up because the changes were signed off on by the CIA.

    There’s a meatpacking-like quality to all this. You don’t really want to know how your hamburger is processed, do you? The administration’s defense — and it’s looking thinner than ice on a late spring pond — is that government bureaucracy is messy and multi-layered and that’s a big part of why Rice said what she did.

    Benghazi occurred seven weeks before election day. The administration’s strategy was simple: Downplay the terror attack, change the narrative, and run out the clock. And that’s what it did.

    But now the dam has burst. Carney’s “here at the White House” comment has essentially thrown Clinton under the bus. Republicans, who leaked the edited emails to Karl and Hayes, have succeeded on two fronts: They’ve got the administration on the defensive over Benghazi, and they’ve weakened the Democrat’s most formidable 2016 candidate.

    Actually, most of us are more concerned over the fact that this administration manipulated information about a terrorist attack to hide its nature during the election, to their advantage. That’s corruption on a very deep level.....snip~

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.

    Sounds like we need to investigate Issa, who appears to have engaged in illegal activities.
    See ... now you're just going through the motions and it shows.

    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.
    ABC News has responded by claiming their original reporting was based on summaries of the emails, not the emails themselves. In a statement to the Washington Post's Erik Wemple, an ABC spokesperson wrote: "Assuming the email cited by Jake Tapper is accurate, it is consistent with the summary quoted by Jon Karl." Karl himself has responded that rather than reviewing the emails themselves, he actually had been "quoting verbatim a source who reviewed the original documents and shared detailed notes." He added that "[t]he source was not permitted to make copies of the original e-mails," suggesting that his original report was based solely on that source's summaries, and denied that the summaries provided an inaccurate take on the original email.


    But ABC News and Karl himself have repeatedly suggested he had obtained the actual emails, not summaries of emails from Rhodes and others in the administration.


    In the third paragraph of his May 10 ABCNews.com article, Karl reported that "White House emails reviewed by ABC News suggest the edits were made with extensive input from the State Department" (emphasis added). Three paragraphs later, he wrote that "Summaries of White House and State Department emails -- some of which were first published by Stephen Hayes of the Weekly Standard -- show that the State Department had extensive input into the editing of the talking points" (emphasis added). That was the sole reference to "summaries" in the online article. Instead, he repeatedly produced quotes from what he described as "emails," suggesting that he had personally reviewed the original documents.


    Karl and his ABC News colleagues also repeatedly suggested on-air that he had obtained the actual emails.

    Yeah, I have up 3 Fact Checkers on that.....which all Debunked what Pelosi and Reid said. Plus they fail to mention themselves and the big point of Obama Signing the Bill. So his part in it too. Not to mention his Budget with what was started with in the first place.

    See that's where they think most of the population don't know whats going on. So that's one of those.....will say it anyways. My only question is why didn't the MSMedia bust them out with the truth themselves. Thus humiliating them on Camera and in front of the Entire Nation? That's what I would have done. Then asked how do they spin their way out of this one now?

    The faux news fans really do get all angry when you poke gigantic holes in their fallacies. This is what happens with creative editing and paraphrasing, and we all know this is not the first time the right has done these things and gotten caught. This is why full direct quotes should be used instead of some biased person's memory. Of course the right thinks we all should be ashamed for not regarding their partisan hacks as truth when their story falls apart like it always does. It is all our fault for not drinking the democrat kool aid and asking for the actual quotations so we can decide for ourselves instead of listening to the interpreted biased meanings that the right puts out. If only we blindly believed faux news and all of the claims of the right wing without any thought we could be free thinkers like they are on the right.

    Guys, there are great reasons to take down Obama, but unfortunately they are also the great reasons to take down all the republicans in government along with the democrats. Obama did not start this stuff, nor is he the only guy doing it. The cure will not be had by removing him. Any day you want to start insisting on transparency in government, honest candidates (see sig), work requirements for congress, and an end to money in politics feel free to actually start doing something in those directions. If your purpose is just to cheer on obvious lies and pretend Obama is the cause of corruption in government then have fun with the beghazi failure. Just don't blame the rest of us when we realize how gullible you are. It is not our fault you again fell for some edited quotes and imaginary facts on the right, so don't get mad at others for pointing out you fell for it yet again, and are still falling for it even after it becomes quite obvious.

    I saw a clip of a State Dept. official from last year, I think it was. She was testifying before a House committee and she was asked if lack of funding had anything to do with the crappy security and she said NO.
