Skip to comments.Officials: CIA memo calling Libya incident 'spontaneous' poor word choice
Posted on 10/20/2012 6:28:45 AM PDT by Oldeconomybuyer
Several senior administration officials tell CNN UN Ambassador Susan Rice's use of the word "spontaneous" on Sunday talk shows five days after the Libya incident came directly from an assessment provided to the House intelligence community by the CIA, which was not edited by the White House.
The officials maintain the criticism is a result of a poor word choice rather than a true difference in representing what was known about the attack at the time. Several officials say instead of calling it "spontaneous" - it might have been better phrased as: the attack had not been long planned; or there were no signs of an upcoming attack on September 11th.

The mooslims were all wee-wee’d up.
The real question is what was Obama doing DURING the attack? Over 100 Americans at State, CIA, the Pentagon and the White House were watching the attack in real time, and listening to desperate pleas for a rescue.
But only one man could make that decision, and he FAILED utterly.
Instead of ordering a risky rescue attempt (one hour flying from our bases in Southern Italy, or our ships at sea), he wrote off the consulate staff, and cooked up the video lie cover story.
Do not believe a word that comes from Jessica Yellin. She is a Democratic supporter of the highest degree. Her interviews of Michele Obama are syrupy. She tiptoes around and deflates the serious issues of the election. If she would have interviewed Mary Todd Lincoln after the assassination she would have asked, “other than that how did you enjoy the play?”
Rice’s use of ‘spontaneous’ on several talk shows was because of an assessment provided to the House of Representatives by the CIA?
When did the House get that assessment from the CIA?
How did Rice get it, if it was unedited by the White House?
Did Rice get it from the House intelligence community?
Or did Rice get it from the CIA?
If so, how did it bypass the official White House?
Team Obama are still digging, still trying to find a workable narrative, still trying to connect that video to the attack.
Team Obama and their complicit medai cohorts are parsing and nuancing.
Team Obama continue trying to obfuscate the entire Benghazi attack and the aftermath.
This is BS.
Rice was TOLD to go on tv.
She was TOLD what to say.
She didn’t go on tv without a script, and that script was vetted/written by the the White House.
They are going to spend this whole weekend throwing up chaff to confuse the average voter about what eally happened. I think Romney SHOULD lay off the Benghazi incident and instead focus on the “Arab Spring” uprisings leading to more Islamic governments like Iran.
It’s almost comical. The hole they’re digging will reach China soon. That’s the ticket—”CIA analysts prove Benghazi attackers’ body-weight, size, and MOs to be far-eastern: violent Buddhists, not peace-loving Muslims.
obama’s very first words should have been:
“The bombing will begin in 5 minutes.”
Jessica Yellen was on CNN yesterday all bent over Romney’s “binder” remark - she was saying that Romney thinks you could just order women from some catalog or something. I wouldn’t take her word on anything.
Of course it was spontaneous - once all the terrorists were in place, the leader said, “one-two-three-GO!” and they spontaneously attacked. When they were out of ammo (6 hours later), they spontaneously stopped the attack and went to their favorite sidewalk cafes for mango juices and pastries.
Look who the head of the CIA is. Look at his background. Then you will understand.
The phrase, “giving aid and comfort to the enemey,” should be repeated every time the name of Traitorobama or any of his demonicrat thugs is uttered.
Man, you know it’s screwed up when they have to start explaining what individual words really meant to them.
So they’re too stupid to be allowed to use words?
1. What assets did we have in the Southern Mediterranean on board a carrier within quick response time?
2. What assets did we have in Italy within quick response time?
3. Did we have any assets on the ground in Libya?
4. What orders, if any, did the President give any military assets we had available?
5. Who was the consulate talking to when they appealed for immediate military help during the attack?
6. What answer was given to their appeal for help?
7. If we had no quick response military assets available in the most dangerous region of the world, why did we not have them available?
8. Was Obama on the way to the fund raiser in Vegas or already on the ground while our Ambassador was being, humiliated degraded, raped and murdered?
9. Has the main stream media asked any of these questions of the administration.
Note: Relative to the rape of our ambassador it has nothing to do with sex. The same thing was done to Qaddafi before he was executed. The purpose is the total degradation and humiliation of your enemy prior to his death and to also strike fear in the hearts of your enemies. We are dealing with a savage culture.
