    Newly released Benghazi documents reinforce that White House was pushing that video w

    Newly released Benghazi documents reinforce that White House was pushing that video was to blame – The Lead with Jake Tapper - CNN.com Blogs

    By Jake Tapper, CNN Chief Washington Correspondent

    New documents obtained by conservative watchdog Judicial Watch reinforce that the White House strongly argued that an anti-Muslim video was the reason for the deadly 2012 terror attacks on U.S. compounds in Benghazi.

    This was done even though intelligence and diplomatic sources on the ground were more convinced the attacks that killed Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans in eastern Libya were carried out by terrorists and not the spontaneous work of an angry mob.

    The new documents can be seen here.

    The documents were not included in the initial set of e-mails the White House released last May which show the interagency debate over talking points to go to lawmakers on Capitol Hill.

    These newly released documents include “TOPLINE POINTS” in question and answer form, prepared by the national security staff, apparently part of the briefing for Susan Rice, then the U.N. ambassador, in preparation for her appearance on Sunday interview shows.

    During the debate over the talking points for Capitol Hill from 2013, Republicans argued that the administration removed specific terror references and stuck to an explanation – later proved untrue – that the attack was result of a spontaneous demonstration over an anti-Muslim film that was produced in the United States. There had been such a demonstration in Cairo.
    Damn, this just won't go away will it?

    The documents in question say otherwise.

    Nothing new here, for us who are better informed than others we knew with in days if not with in 24 hours that it was a terrorist attack and had nothing to do with a Youtube video. That the Obama White House was involved in a cover up to hide the incompetencies of Obama and those of his administration to get him through November so he could be given a second chance and reelected.

    BTW: Why did Richard Nixon resign the Presidency in 1974 ? America sure has lowered the standards for POTUS since then. Today even a corrupt, incompetent community organiser can occupy the White House.

    As you look through your translucent glasses, you won't be happy until Obama is impeached.
    America sure has lowered the standards for POTUS since then.
    Especially in 1980 with the beginning of the total accumulated debt and the oligarchy created by tax cuts for the rich and deregulation.
    Today even a corrupt, incompetent community organiser can occupy the White House.
    Much to your ever-lasting chagrin .

    He resigned because someone told him that if he were impeached by the House, there was likely enough votes in the Senate (67) to remove him from office.

    Jay Carney? Dan Pfeiffer, too? Don't these guys work in the WH? Why yes, they do. Guess who their boss is.

    That's either the most ironic or most trollish statement I've ever read.
