Exclusive: Benghazi Talking Points Underwent 12 Revisions, Scrubbed of Terror Reference - ABC NewsThis is how I reported the contents of that e-mail, quoting verbatim a source who reviewed the original documents and shared detailed notes:
The source was not permitted to make copies of the original e-mails. The White House has refused multiple requests – from journalists, including myself, and from Republican leaders in Congress – to release the full e-mail exchanges.
So Karl is reporting that anon GOPer paraphrased an email because they COULDN'T get a copy...because the ‘White House has refused multiple requests to release the full e-mail exchanges’. If the WH hasn’t released them how could the GOP edit them. OH and to substantiate Karl's WH assertion:
Press Briefing by Press Secretary Jay Carney, 05/10/2013 | The White HousePress Briefing by Press Secretary Jay Carney, 05/10/2013-
Q Since you bring it up, why were those emails provided in a read-only fashion?
MR. CARNEY: It is, I think, a standard procedure for administrations of both parties, going back decades, that internal deliberations are generally protected -- is generally protected information that is not something that is regularly shared with Congress, and then that’s -- to allow for a deliberative process in the executive branch. In this case, to answer just these concerns that members of Congress had, particularly Republican members of Congress, that step was taken and provided. [/B]And they were able to review all of these emails, which they have, of course, now leaked to reporters, but they were able to review all of these emails for as long as they wanted, take extensive notes if they chose to. [/B]
Again, how could the GOP edit ‘Benghazi-related emails’ when per Jay Carney they were allowed to ‘read only’ and couldn’t take copies? Go on you can say it…
Of course if you could provide copies of these GOP edited ‘Benghazi-related emails’ you accusation would have much more merit...
