Top GOP lawmaker pressures Clapper to explain altered talking points on Libya
Fox News ^ | November 20, 2012 | Catherine Herridge

The Republican chairman of the House Intelligence Committee is demanding an immediate explanation from the nation’s top intelligence official, James Clapper, for what the chairman says were inconsistent statements to Congress and to the public on who was behind changes to the CIA talking points on the Libya consulate attack in September. Critics say the Obama administration initially minimized the role of terrorism despite evidence of a coordinated attack on the consulate in Benghazi. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans were killed in the assault. Testimony last week on Capitol Hill raised additional questions about the administration's changing story on the attack, putting new pressure on Clapper, the director of national intelligence.

And you will continue to wait...hope you don’t hold your breath.

Clapper could come out on Monday at a press conference and say “we did this purely for political reasons because we knew if al-Qaeda were mentioned, it would have looked bad in Americans’ eyes and we didn’t want that political fallout”, and it would mean little to the American MSM or the people that voted for this megalomaniac.

Let us not forget Hillary’s blaming the video to the parents of the murdered CIA agents a good week after 9/11 or Obama’s speech at the UN where he blamed the video and NEVER used the word TERRORISTS!

POTUS, Senate, House, news media... let’s see.

House=beats nothing (all they do is talk on C-Span, they have no guns)
Senate=beats nothing except impeach POTUS (same as house)
media=always for bad guys, against good guys
POTUS=beats everything if he wants to; he commands law enforcement and military

Looks like POTUS beats all. (Valerie Jarrett must feel powerful).

Well, unless they a) are GOP-e (they let dems win every issue anyway) or b) they’re Dem and they do impeachable offenses (oops, that doesn’t count any more, Dems can do whatever they want, media does not make a stink when DOJ is blatantly criminal and treasonous).

Sorry, morality and rule of law have no voice any more.

Are Americans willing to take do private sector initiatives to change the mindset of the population back towards morality ?

All the politicians listen to is something that threatens to get them dumped out of office.

IMHO.

The part that has left me scratching my head is the strange way that Hillary and Zero kept ensuring that the US was not responsible for the video, as if somehow the government was to blame. Their repeated statements jump out as an indication that something bizarre is going on. This is a red flag that needs further investigation, I believe.

Why is anyone surprized that Clapper took all references to Muslim Terrorists out of the CIA issued Statement? Obama and Rev Wright cheered on September 11, 2001 when Muslim Terrorists flew two planes into the World Trade Center and one plane into the Pentagon with another aiming for the CAPITAL BUILDING when American Heros forced it to crash in a field! Obama still refuses to call the Fort HOOD Massacre Perpetrator a Terrorist! Napolitano still labels Terrorism as Man-Caused Disasters! and on and on and on! OBAMA IS A MULIM and Supports the Muslim Brotherhood! OBAMA campaigned in Kenya during his “Cousin’s Presidential Run” during which it is documented that the Cousin signed an agreement with the Muslim Brotherhood that when he took power, he would force all Kenyans to become Muslims and would require Shria Law as the new Law of the Land! Obama knew that and obviously supported that and the Riots and Murders of Christians and the burnings of their churches when His Candidate lost the Election! My Gosh! Lets call a Spade a Spade!

I googled a bit and couldn’t find out for sure, but he probably didn’t testify under oath. Administration officials will very often negotiate to appear voluntarily, since the President can prevent them from testifying by invoking Executive Priviledge. It’s kinda like a cobra and a mongoose relationship, unless the President and the Committee chair are from the same party. Then it’s all lovey-dovey.

Crapper is a liar and should be in prison. Like the young, college kid skulls full of mush say, “You just can’t trust old white guys”.

The "Talking Points". Seriously? THAT is the focus?!?

Does anyone think for a second that the grieving families give a ratsass about talking points?

Was there a cry for help or not? Was it ignored by the CIC or not? We have dead heroes. We have a dead Ambassador.

EFF talking points!

Clapper was the one who said NASA’s role was muslim outreach, and that Muslim Brotherhood was a political organization and not terrorists...

We, as a nation, need to seriously revamp how we select people to be admirals and generals.

Clapper certainly defended the Muslim Brotherhood terrorists as a peaceful, political organization and didn’t know about the LONDON TERROR ATTACKS hours after they happened on National TV! However, I believe it was OBAMA HUSSEIN’S Handpicked DIRECTOR OF NASA that said his directive from The PRESIDENT was to make Muslim Involvement in Our Space Program “NASA’s HIGHEST PRIORITY!” Obama HUSSEIN’s Cancerous Preoccupation with giving ISLAM the Highest Prioritys in every facet of His Administration is Sickening and Treasonous! Just offering a clarification.....:-)!
