    You linked to several e-mails and most of them are about Benghazi.

I tell you the reporters in that briefing when he tried to float this idiocy looked like they were going to fall out their chairs. It was like they could not believe what they were hearing. Hell even Taylor Marsh from the NYT (yes THAT Taylor Marsh) jumped on this brain dead on delivery attempt to spin.
    Yeah. It's kind of mind-boggling that they thought they could give that as an excuse and get away with it, but you have to remember, as recently as 2012, they could have.

    I'm starting to seriously wonder if Republicans will keep trying to play the Benghazi card until the day they die.

    Depends whether it's a good card or not.

    As long as you've got a White House just now releasing (forced by a court) subpenaed material? They deliberately previously withheld or redacted? Which contains damning and concerning information? Well you can count on "card playing" in this poker game of the administration's starting mid summer and running through August. At least.

    One has to see the Judicial Watch FOIA access request to be able to adequately answer your question. As someone who administered a similar act here in Canada for a government institution, the actual wording of the request is all important.

    If Judicial Watch requested all documents related to the White House response to the incidents in Benghazi, and this is what they provided, then the FOIA administrator along with the White House has deemed the content of this letter to be responsive directly to the request. So there's your answer. If, however, the Judicial Watch request was for all White House documents related to Middle Eastern policy and this was provided, then the FOIA administrator along with the White House has deemed the content of this letter to be responsive directly to that broader request. And that's the second possible answer.

    By the way, in the embarrassing press briefing yesterday. As Carney referenced the part of the email that "was about" Benghazi, in the email he was saying was "not about" Benghazi? He forgot to realize he just admitted that said email was by his own admission at least partially a wee wee little bit about Benghazi. Aside from the reporters in the room, did anyone here feel that either they or perhaps Carney, was a wee bit dizzy?

    I have little sympathy for media types who get played by other media types. They stupidly let themselves be played and then when one day they wake up and decide they don't want to be played anymore they get all butt hurt about being spun. How the hell do they think the public feels about all of them?

    I have no sympathy at all for them. Though not all the reporters in that room have been played. But in general the public holds a very negative view of the current state of affairs in journalism in the USA. This matter illustrates why.
