Skip to comments.CIA's language on Benghazi was barely edited, White House says
Posted on 11/17/2012 2:59:18 PM PST by ColdOne
The White House made only small, factual edits to the CIA's initial intelligence assessment on the September attack on Americans in Benghazi, deputy national security adviser Ben Rhodes said Saturday.
"We were provided with points by the intelligence community that represented their assessment," Rhodes said aboard Air Force One en route to Asia. "The only edit made by the White House was the factual edit about how to refer to the facility.

4 died that night. 40 others left to die.Obama did nothing to help them and that is a FACT!
murderers attempt a rewrite, barely..........substituted terroist attack for demonstration
A ha ha ...
One man’s terrorist is another man’s demonstrator/freedom fighter.
Note the word game here - “altered” - when in fact the critical part was what they omitted. And omission is the most powerful form of lie.
I'm fed up with the White House whores treating me as if I have zero intelligence. These people, beginning with the head of the snake (Obozo) need to be removed from office.
Lies Lies Lies Lies Lies. Our country is going down fast.
The WH could easily have sent the report back to be changed the way they wanted and still be making this same statement.
Mr President, your protestations are fraudulent. All of the documentation and facts produced so far back up Petraeus.
You can lie all you want, until you produce answers, YOU LIED!
Everything here is a lawyerly word-game.
As Bill Clinton said, it depends on what the meaning of “is” is.
SO the White House DID edit the CIA's language.
Drip......... drip...... drip....... drip.....
Now we have the ‘spontaneously changing intel memo’ to go along with the ‘spontaneous protest.’ I guess I will just hope that 0coward will spontaneously combust.
We have become a 3rd world country so quickly
factual edit = LIE
Now there's a precision word. Not.
How big must deceit be before it is criminal if it was used to hide the incompetence of a corrupt communists organization.
But Rhodes said that language never made it into the assessment that the White House and State Department received, and that any edit happened before it reached them.
Oh, I get it. The WH put the intel report on its website and let the Twitter community edit it. Tomorrow's talking point.
did the fool in the w h ever think that by admitting “they” barely edited the report that they confirmed they lied? think V. jarrett had anything to do with this?
Hardly worth discussing, the MSM will say.
"I dont know nuthin bout birthin no terrorists."
We have become a 3rd world country so quickly
With severe economic instability soon to follow.
Lies, Lies and More Lies.
No one even knows who edited it.
Reminds me of that Livingstone character back from
the Clinton years. Remember he is the one who got all
those FBI files.(which Hillary still has, I’m sure)
When he got fired. No one could ever find out who hired
him in the first place.
Why was it edited in the first place??!!
They just added a few smiley faces.
This word-parsing crap is all over the place, when "no evidence exists" is code for "we destroyed or hid anything damaging", or "no Laws were broken" means that they tip-toed to avoid Legal recourse on their actions.
Unfortunately, the parasites who love having the Gubmint take care o' them with handouts or JOBS, or Union slugs who provide nothing but get their special "Exemptions" from Obamacare, or handouts to continue their pensions (TARP), or those who are employed in do-nothing/produce-nothing Gubmint jobs lap up all the rhetoric of the State-Run-Media, Hollywood, and the "Diverse" assholes running around to have politicians pander to them/give handouts to them, for their votes.
agreed, maybe that is why they did massive vote rigging and fraud.
Look at the Dem counties,Palm, Dade and Broward.
They had some of the lowest turn outs for this state.
That explains why obama kept going to those 3 Dem counties, he knew had to win by any means and never had the base for himself.
That also explains why he got less than 5000 votes in Tampa days before and yet he was supposed to have win we’re told.
Explains why I hardly ever see an obama sticker in this state when I drive around or know hardly anyone who voted for him.
If obama had got booted out as he should have if we had a fair election then we would get answers to Libya, Bin laden, fast and furious,spending, working wiht media, death of a border agent and yes his sealed records
So, it appears that the CIA and the Obummer Cabal are squaring off.
Why edit it at all? The General is obviously much smarter and more qualified than anyone in the White House.
Other than Obama-bots, can anyone now doubt that Krauthammer was right?
Petraeus fell on his sword rather than let the White House blackmail him into lying to congress.
These comments were obviously meant for Obama's supporters.
Yes, and they have 3 long long months to chip away at it, & perfecting their craft of lying.
Obama, like JFK, has now POed the CIA.
Wonder how that will turn out.
he’ll have to start persecuting internal enemies and find a war to distract the sheeple
The real question the press perpetually avoids is WHO ORDERED THE SECURITY DETAIL TO BE WITHDRAWN? Who was responsible for securing the mission? Why did they intentionally leave it without adequate security?
"You got a problem with that explanation?"
There is a BIG difference between Allen Dulles and Petraeus.
Dulles headed up the CIA for years. His brother was Secretary of State.
Funny how Allen ended up on the Warren Commission.
MK Ultra happened under his watch. Dulles was ruthless.
One thing he had in common with Dave is that he was a womanizer.
Who initiated arms shipments to al Qaeda/Muzzie Bro's?
I’m betting Jarrett is knee deep in it.
- Al Qeda
Really it’s only a one character change.
It doesn’t matter what edits you made, Ben, you’re still a bunch of screw-ups.
