    re: Republicans Altered Benghazi Emails, CBS News Report Claims [W:361]

    the recipient of the email in question writes:

    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.

    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. [...]

    I asked my original source today to explain the different wording on the Ben Rhodes e-mail, and the fact that the words “State Department” were not included in the e-mail provided to CNN’s Tapper. This was my source’s response, via e-mail: “WH reply was after a long chain of email about State Dept concerns. So when WH emailer says, take into account all equities, he is talking about the State equities, since that is what the email chain was about.”

    The White House could still clear up this confusion by releasing the full e-mail transcripts that were provided for brief review by a select number of members of Congress earlier this year. If there’s “no ‘there’ there,” as President Obama himself claimed yesterday, a full release should help his case.

    why did victoria nuland push so hard for edits on behalf of her "building leadership"

    whose name was redacted when ms nuland forwarded those "serious concerns'

    why won't the white house release the chain?

    why does the white house want the world to believe it's staffed by idiots?

    stay tuned

    The posts you made counter to the argument are BS? Really?

    Thank you for this...

    Why does it make a difference what the talking points were saying less than a week past Sept 11?

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

    This reminds of the kid who stabbed his sister and blamed it on an imaginary home invader, just less charming.

    Look, the Obama Regime is corrupt and incompetent. I know it, you know it. We might as well get on with assessing the damage. We're going to be at that task for decades.

    He doesn’t. The premise of his report is the Jonathan Karl report which states:
    This is how I reported the contents of that e-mail, quoting verbatim a source who reviewed the original documents and shared detailed notes:
    Exclusive: Benghazi Talking Points Underwent 12 Revisions, Scrubbed of Terror Reference - ABC News

    Note the original reporting was based on ‘shared detailed notes’ NOT ACTUAL EMAILS. Now the differences:
    Reported:
    “We must make sure that the talking points reflect all agency equities, including those of the State Department, and we don’t want to undermine the FBI investigation. We thus will work through the talking points tomorrow morning at the Deputies Committee meeting.”

    Actual email released by WH:
    “Sorry to be late to this discussion. We need to resolve this in a way that respects all of the relevant equities, particularly the investigation."

    The reported version uses ‘all agency equities, including those of the State Department’ instead of ‘all of the relevant equities’. Would you stipulate that the state department is part of ‘relevant equities’? It uses ‘undermine the FBI investigation’ instead of ‘particularly the investigation’. So in effect Karl/GOP operative paraphrased the actual email from notes taken and ‘reporter liberties’ to make the reader understand the message more fully. Karl did err when he claimed to see the ‘actual email’ but in the end the message wasn’t materially different. IMO

    It implies coverup. Why has the White House been so reticent to release these emails? There was no there there a week past Sept 11, but later on there was much ambiguity. There is still much data that has yet to be released. Will it change the issue? Who knows.

    So this is all about a "cover-up" for a week if that? Some cover-up. You must think we are ALL idiots to believe that was a serious consideration.
