    Kinda sad that James Clapper is being lined up to be thrown under the bus.  Like everything else, he will be the last to know.

    It never was a scandal...only in the worst right-wing/foxnews fever dreams and john mccain's bile duct.

    The Susan Rice SecState swearing in ceremony will be fun, though....

    I will, because it's true.

    But don't believe me...believe old man Mccain, who now - after saying the opposite for weeks - says that Susan Rice is free and clear - did not edit her talking points and that they came direct from the DNI, not the WH. 

    So, he was wrong.  And he owes Rice (at least) and POTUS an apology...

    ...which won't happen because he's a goper, and goper/fox-tools never, ever apologize.

    Game. Set. Match.  The right-wing faux outrage machine loses AGAIN.  What a waste of time and energy which could have been devoted to serious matters, like the fiscal cliff.

    See you at the next non-scandal.  ;))

    Official: Changes to Benghazi talking points made by intel community.

    The intelligence community - not the White House, State Department or Justice Department - was responsible for the substantive changes made to the talking points distributed for government officials who spoke publicly about the attack on the U.S. mission in Benghazi, the spokesman for the director of national intelligence said Monday.

    The unclassified talking points on Libya, developed several days after the the deadly attack on the U.S. mission in Benghazi, were not substantively changed by any agency outside of the intelligence community, according to the spokesman, Shawn Turner.

    The initial version included information linking individuals involved in the attack to al Qaeda, according to a senior U.S. official familiar with the drafting of the talking points. But when the document was sent to the rest of the intelligence community for review, there was a decision to change "al Qaeda" to "extremists." The official said the change was made for legitimate intelligence and legal reasons, not for political purposes.

    "First, the information about individuals linked to al Qaeda was derived from classified sources," the official said. "Second, when links were so tenuous - as they still are - it makes sense to be cautious before pointing fingers so you don't set off a chain of circular and self-reinforcing assumptions. Third, it is important to be careful not to prejudice a criminal investigation in its early stages."

    Some Republican members of Congress suggested the change came from within the Obama administration - from the White House, the Justice Department, or another government agency.

    Turner, the spokesman for National Intelligence Director James Clapper, said that was not the case.

    "The intelligence community made substantive, analytical changes before the talking points were sent to government agency partners for their feedback," Turner said, referring to the White House, Justice Department, State Department, Pentagon and FBI. "There were no substantive changes made to the talking points after they left the intelligence community," he said.

    The latest version of the truth is that they changed the talking points they received from Patreus before they gave them to Rice.

    This is just too comical.

    Obama knew in real time time who was responsible but they peddled this video/spontaneous bs to the American public three days after on Sept. 14 when Rice went on 5 Sunday morning talk shows and pooh poohed Al Qaeda and Muslim extremism.

    Why?

    Because of the upcoming election.

    Because they were beating their chests saying Al Qaeda was on the run.

    When it is a BIG LIE.

    You may be stupid but the rest of us are not.

    The matter was still being investigated.  The Administration talked about "acts of terror" and the video.  It is still not proven that Al Queda was behind the effort and how deep their planning went.  You are guessing.

    What's real-time?  You think Obama is sitting in the oval office right now watching a live security feed of a small consulate from somewhere in the Middle East?  Do you think the security cameras survived the attack?  Or are you referring to the video from the drone that flew overhead 90 minutes after the attack?

    Here's film footage from less than 3 hours after the attack - tell me what you see here ...  http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=yMSnyOMRXos

    Are these guys Al Qaeda?  If not, where is Al Qaeda?  You're going to tell me they were attacking the consulate for seven hours, after planning the attack for months, and somehow a group of Libyan civilians snuck in and dragged Ambassador Stevens to a local hospital?

    Not a crime.

    You probably don't think concealing the truth to Congress and the American people is important.

    You probably also think leaving 2 American seals to die after desperate pleas for support to be even noteworthy... especially during an election. 

    ..or completely ignoring ALL intelligence reports warning of an attack.

     

    It simply leads to total complete incompetence by your boy Barry.

    [/QUOTE]

    Do show me the "intelligence reports" that substantiate your version of the facts.  Not articles from Fox news about unnamed sources that provide an alternative view, no the actual reports.  But you don't have any... you are making your "facts" up.  That is intellectual incompetence.
