CIA talking points for Susan Rice called Benghazi attack "spontaneously inspired" by protests
CBS News ^ | November 15, 2012

Posted on 11/15/2012 8:34:34 AM PST by Oldeconomybuyer

CBS News has obtained the CIA talking points given to U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice on Sept. 15 regarding the fatal attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, four days earlier. CBS News correspondent Margaret Brennan says the talking points, which were also given to members of the House intelligence committee, make no reference to terrorism being a likely factor in the assault, which left U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans dead.

"Available information suggests that the demonstrations in Benghazi were spontaneously inspired by the U.S. Embassy in Cairo and evolved into a direct assault... There are indications that extremists participated," read the CIA's talking points.

Who issued these talking points? And did this person get orders from above him. There is no doubt that the top part of the chain is King Obama. He is a liar, cheat, and typical Chicago communists criminal.

Obama first told Petraeus to lie, so that maybe he could keep his job, and his affair wouldn't become public.

How the worm turns....

In the second debate (the Crowley debate) Obama said he called it a terroist attack “from day one”. So why would he give the wrong talking points to Rice and congress. He was definately lying to someone. Either he was lying to Rice when he sent her out on the Sunday shows or he was lying to 60 million people watching the debates. Either way, he has just been caught lying (again).

The ONLY reason to put Susan Rice on all those shows saying these lies was because she's an UNTOUCHABLE THREE-FER....black female DEMOCRAT!!

Even Obama said she didn't know anything about this, yet she was put out!!!

The blatant assertion during the debate versus the point you make about "talking points" is the key.

Let’s see: Petraeus was given an extra 180k by the Administration via a job for his wife (on top of his 220k military pension and 180k CIA director salary). He was living high on the hog and had little reason to rock the boat. Especially since he knew at the time he testified that the FBI was aware of his affair and he likely presumed that White House was as well.

Obama / Jarrett told Rice what lie to sell. All to stall for the election.

I have to say, just from my observations, that Susan Rice does not appear to be particularly intelligent at all.

Krauthammer was right when he said that if she didn’t know anything (which is what Obama said) the why send her out to 5 Sunday Shows? Looks to me like ground zero of the “war on women” is at the White House. That was a nasty thing for him to do to her.

Not only a three-fer but one with no self-respect...or is that a qualifying condition?

Rice was sent on a fools mission. Rather than object she’s putting politics above integrity and choosing to overlook the slight and accept the SOS position as payback.

So much for honesty from the nation’s President during the 2012 debates. I am still trying to understand how dumbed down our population has become. It is lost.

Obama plainly said she used the info she had.

He is like the Clintons. Very literal with the escape route included in the statement.

Never alone, didn’t have sex. It’s all in their desired definition.

It’s always not the full facts, and the MSM isn’t brave enough to use his own
line....

The Obama Rose Garden comments were generic about acts of terror and not specific about terrorist attacks in Benghazi. Typical community organizer talk that contains words without meaning and a fun house full of smoke and mirrors.

She’s probably smart enough to know who to put her legs in the air for, but not much more.

Nathan Bedford's definition of "to lie":

The knowing telling of an untruth with intent to deceive and induce reliance.

A lot of us have been throwing around accusations that Rice lied. If she relied on talking points supplied to her directly by the CIA it seems to me she has the right to claim innocence of lying but she has to plead guilty to criminal naïveté and be disbarred from high office.

Rather than discount entirely this story, let us accept that she received talking points as described from the CIA. Immediately one wants to know who in the CIA wrote those talking points and who was responsible for them. Enter former head of the CIA General Petreus, why might he have been involved in presenting false talking points and why might he have rendered false testimony to Congress (whether under oath or not he is legally obligated to tell the truth on pain of criminal sanction) confirming that the "demonstrations in Benghazi were spontaneously inspired by the U.S. Embassy in Cairo and evolved into a direct assault…"?

Rather than accept that Obama simply blackmailed Petreus the far more likely scenario has already been told to us in part by his mistress in her speech in Denver in which she stated that the CIA was keeping prisoners in the Annex. Evidently, this is a crime for the CIA to keep prisoners. There was a high degree of motivation in the head of the CIA to keep that criminality secret not just because it was something that might implicate him personally but because it would discredit American foreign policy, if you accept the Obama view that making nice to terrorists is a foreign policy.

Petreus might have regarded it as an act patriotism; at the time he saw himself acting to protect the institution and the country. He might even have believed that he was nobly falling on his sword for his Commander-In-Chief.

If that is the case, it was a case of grossly misplaced patriotism worse than the Iran-Contra affair. We will have to see what transpires Friday in Petreus' testimony when it gets leaked.

This comes out now that the CIA has been discredited and Graham threatens to tie up Rice’s nomination.
OK. What kind of an idiot goes out to talk on five news shows about a subject she knows nothing about. Shouldn’t a Secretary of State be smarter than a tape recorder?

CIA talking points? Or talking points prepared by the White House and called “CIA Talking Points”? Question for CBS: Is the talking points document signed? (Why do I feel we have been through something like this with Dan Rather?)

I agree... but like Orwell said in 1984..the dems will just change the historical record of the 2nd debate.. no one is calling him on this except us and few pundits..

most folks don’t care, they are too busy playing that new video game “call to arms” (or whatever it’s called)... and watching Dancing with the Stars.. and bunch of other shows I’ve never seen.

"Who issued these talking points? And did this person get orders from above him."

Exactly. Who put them together? Who authorized for them to be put together? Who was the first person to recommend the attack be blamed on the video? Just more smoke and mirrors from this administration.

Clinton was actually somewhat credible when he said he did not have “sexual relations” with that women. There is not reason to suspect that he was lying. But only because “sexual relations” has a very specific definition that the vast majority of people are unfamiliar with.

Politicians are great at non-denial denials and non-apology apologies.

WRT to Rice: I am not entirely sure that she knew she was deceiving the public. It is quite possible that she’s operating under a politically correct model of reality. Everybody employs a model of the world — a worldview — to interpret events. Many highly educated and intelligent people have very sophisticated models that enable them to arrive at the conclusion that everything that goes wrong is due to an excess of individual liberty and that a more comprehensive tyranny is necessary for the public good.

He will face justice one day... he is not dom obama and he is not immune to the truth. He is a prime example of what is wrong with the governments of the USA... Local, State and Federal.
