The question is, were Issa, Boehner and the rest personally involved?

    Republicans Altered Benghazi Emails, CBS News Report Claims
    So the article MUST be referring to the piece Jonathan Karl, ABC News, did concerning the '12 revisions’ but note how he describes these ‘edited Benghazi-related emails’:

    This 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-
    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]
    Press Briefing by Press Secretary Jay Carney, 05/10/2013 | The White House

    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...

    That explains it!!!

    I was trying to copy images of some of the emails and only the headers would copy over. That does indeed put a dent in the "GOP altered them" theory.

In particular, why was the information about prior warnings and prior attacks left out? One would figure that was pretty damned pertinent to the situation, don't you think?

    A statement like that is a perfect example of a cartoonish view of the military, firstly what Marines? Secondly, do you know the compound was over run in 20 minutes do you think we can just drop a ton of Marines in less than 20 minutes without warning? Thirdly, the same problem exists of going in blind, dropping a small SF team into a rioting city isn't going to turn out well and neither is dropping a few dozen or hundred Marines.

    Why does the Republican Party do this?

    Your own source clearly states that members of the Benghazi hearings were able to view the emails for as long as they liked, to take notes. So when they leaked the emails, they either did not take good notes, or they intentionally changed the content. The reporter relied on the leaker for accuracy and didn't get it, meanwhile the story runs and the RW goes off again half-cocked on bad info.

    That is EXACTLY the point. The GOP released 'notes' not emails, there was no content to change as they DIDN'T HAVE COPIES TO CHANGE...you have to admit though it was quite an effective tactic as the Karl report was on Friday and WH released the ACTUAL emails on Monday, which they were reticent to do prior.

    You are being pedantic. The fact is that GOP members misrepresented the content of those emails. Another word for "misrepresented" is "lied".

    If Democrats had done this, it would be another "scandal". When it comes to "scandal", Repubs are the experts on the subject.
