Posted on 11/27/2012 8:57:37 PM PST by Seizethecarp
Neither I nor anyone else in the administration intended to mislead the American people at any stage in the process, said Ms. Rice, who was accompanied at the 10 a.m. meeting by the acting director of the Central Intelligence Agency, Michael J. Morell.
But Mr. Morell reinforced the perception of an administration that cannot get its story straight by asserting during the meeting that the F.B.I. had modified Ms. Rices talking points by removing a specific reference to Al Qaeda. At 4 p.m., the senators said in a statement, the C.I.A. called to notify them that Mr. Morell had erred, and that the agency had made the change, not the bureau.
We are disturbed by the administrations continued inability to answer even the most basic questions about the Benghazi attack and the administrations response, the senators said.

Even the NY Times is so disgusted that they report this straight up!
Benghazi Keystone Cops ping...
Guess who is part of “the intelligence community”? Eric Holder by way of the FBI reporting to him.
Now, for a few hours today, we have the CIA acting director Morell fingering “the FBI.” But I thought that the DNI had said that the change was made in HIS shop...after saying he didn't have a clue when meeting with senators just before Thanksgiving.
So the blame when from nowhere, to the DNI, to the FBI this AM, but now back to the CIA this afternoon!
Even MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell today was doing some straight up coverage of the real story which she pointed out was why were the Benghazi mission and the ambassador inadequately protected before the attack?
That's why we repeated the lie on every media outlet and at every daily press briefing for nine days.
GOP Senators Not Satisfies as Rice . . .
GOP Senators Assure Rice’s nomination to Secretary of State (because they worry about losing their jobs)Story to follow.
The GOP Senators, the most cowardly and materialistic people known to the history of this country, once again surpassed their Democrat (not to be confused with “democratic”) counterparts today in their ongoing mission to destroy the fabric of this great country, It’s Conastitution t=they swore to uphold (fat chance dopey republican voters) and overwhelmingly approved Susan Rice as Secretary of State, claiming that they are so frightened, intimidated, emasculated and basically shivering in their johnston and Murphys at being caught thinking that she perhaps could be of African descent, and in their quest to shake off their guilt in being complicit in the heinous crime of slavery.

Did she wave her finger at them, like Bill Clinton did while denying all about Lewinski?

One would think that you would need someone of actual intelligence running the intelligence community, but apparently not- Any old chicago style thug with more bronze than brains, and who is willign to stand before the American people and LIE to them and act like nothign is wrong-
[[Even MSNBCs Andrea Mitchell today was doing some straight up coverage of the real story which she pointed out was why were the Benghazi mission and the ambassador inadequately protected before the attack?]]
And holder and ilk will simply continue to claim that it was because ‘they didn’t want to tip off the terrorists that we were on to them’ (DESPITE the FACT that their own government over there declared it was the work of terrorists- but apparently we wanted to be ‘more sneaky’ in huntign down the terrorists who already knew we were onto them) And that will suffice as credible explanation for peopel like Andrea and ilk
Let me guess; Mitch McConnell is going to send a strongly worded letter to the White House. (Crickets).
McConnell and Boehner are freaking useless.
She's still lying and she's still speaking for the administration.

PRECISELY- Did the GOP come out and DEMAND an answer from the president himself as to why he BLAMED AN AMERICAN for 9 straight days instead of blaming hte terrorists? Are they demanding the president explain why the first thing he and staff did was to BLAME AN AMERICAN and a stupid video? Did our president blame the terrorists? Oh Hell no! He BLAMED AN AMERICAN- that’s how UNAMERICAN thgis presidebnt is- His first reaction was not to blame htose hwo were actually rerspo0nsible for the despicable murders, but to BLAME AN AMERICAN- He was APPEASING THE TERRORISTS instead of doign his job and declaring war on those terrorists hte way a REAL president like George Bush did-
Our own president BLAMES AN AMERICAN instead of blamign the terrorist- He LIES to the world abotu what happened REPEATEDLY, and this country voted him back into officE? I have officially lost faith that this country is any logner capable of voting correctly and morally- Had president Bush doen hwat this president did and LIED liek obama LIED and had he blamed an American like obama BLAMED AN AMERICAN, the left woudl be screaming bloody murder- but nope- the GOP is simply ‘deeply disturbed’ and ‘troubled’ by what rice has said? For crying out loud- uit’s no friggin wonder the gop is falling to pieces with a group of SPINELESS senators like what we’ve just witnessed!!!
Anyone wanting on or off this ping list, please advise.
The LIE started long before the attacks did. LONG before.
She waved her finger and her head did the typical black girl neck roll.
[[The LIE started long before the attacks did. LONG before]]
you’re right, and sadly America in this last election said as a colelctive whole “WE don’t care if the left lies to us, we want free things, and we wil lreelect thsi liar and his lyign staff’- Americans voted Evil into office while kicking God out at the same time- I was shocked that this coutnry would vote a blatant LIAR back into office- and voted to legalize drugs and gay marriage in several states (and soon to be in every state)— it was a VERY sad day indeed to discover that thsi country DOES NOT CARE about morality any longer, and that they prefer a LIAR to be president instead of someoen who was at least morally somewhat upright- The current president did NOTHING he claiemd he woudl do for 4 years- he ran aroudn playing games- golf, basketball- partying- spendign the people’s money left and right- LIED constantly- trampeld our cosntitutional rights- bullied our supreme courts attacked religion etc etc etc- and STILL this country voted him back into office? There is another htread on FR talkign abotu how America ‘can coem back’- I dissagree- it’s too far goen to recover now- thsi last election proved that beyond a shadow of a doubt- this country woudl rather have a lying, cheating, anti American as president than to allow morality to ruel the day again-
I never thought I’d see such a day in my lifetime- but I witnessed it this last nov for myself-
There is no nice way to put it. Rice lied to protect Barry’s gonads during the election. Period. She’s a tool of the Obama regime. The Senators need to stop playing around with her and put her under oath. Once she commits perjury, throw her ass in jail.
It's hard to see where it matters to anyone, including the initially gung-ho for the truth reporters, like Jennifer Griffin of Fox. More than anything, what I can't understand is the complete silence of the 30+ survivors who lived because of a few men who died for them. Were I, or anyone I know or care to know, in their position, there is absolutely nothing that could buy my silence.
And what are we to make of the silence from the family members of those who died? In the early daysof the unfolding scandal and cover-up, Charles Woods, father of murdered SEAL Tyrone Woods, was on every radio talk show and Fox News program demanding answers. Where did he go?
Error my ass. CRIME.
And we Senators are disturbed by your not asking the most basic questions of "Who gave the STAND DOWN order".....very disturbed.
Yes, this is a good strategy. We need her to perjure, which she will gladly do, sychophant that she is. Then go for the big fish.
mccain stated that the fbi had interviewed the survivors in GERMANY two days after the attack. They were probably warned then that this was classified info and that they needed to be quiet during the ‘investigation’...or maybe risk their jobs.
We haven’t heard anything from the security guys either. They are angry as hell but there is real fear of this administration. Very real fear.
Just as an aside, I’m not satisfied with the GOP senators’ non-satisfaction.
To which I ask myself, so?
I received this from a friend of mine and perhaps some one amongst you FREEPERS may want to opine on this subject.
I have heard about this one before and I do believe this to be about as close to the truth as it can get as I wouldn’t pass anything by this individual who currently is occupying the white hut. Perhaps some of you may recall that it was Senator Chuck Grassley from Iowa who blew the whistle on the gun running scheme under the name Fast and Furious. So I forwarded this article to him and asked him to check this out and see if he could be of some help. If I happen to get a reply from him I will pass it along.
There is a saying in the German language which goes something like this...” A ceramic jug gets carried to the well in order to get water just so may times before some one drops it and it breaks” Sooner or later I hope this occupant of the white hut pulls one stunt too many and hopefully it will become his Waterloo. If this happens to be true and I do believe it is, for some one to get elected and in the process have some of our people killed, he deserves to hang.

Subject: FW: Surprise Gone Bad A MUST READ!
This is from a friend that now lives in Virginia. He husband is a retired navel officer. DB
I am just sending this to a few, from a General friend well versed in intelligence.
According to sources in the State Department and the CIA, and intercepted communications from the Muslim Brotherhood, Obama “staged” the attack in Benghazi in order to create a monumental “October Surprise” that would guarantee him re-election. Yes, you read that right, and no, I’m not making this up. Obama, we now know, is and has been working with the Muslim Brotherhood secretly to engineer the release of the “Blind Sheik,” Omar Abdel Rahman, the mastermind behind the 1993 World Trade Center attack. In Obama’s October Surprise, he intentionally set up the consulate to have no security so that Chris Stevens could be kidnapped, and held for ransom by Al-Qaeda (and the Muslim Brotherhood). Then, several days before the election, the plan was to trade Chris Stevens for the Blind Sheik, making himself look like a hero, and all but guaranteeing re-election. This was one of the top reasons why Obama was so insistent on the Muslim Brotherhood getting $1.2 Billion in U.S. Aid. They were to have a primary role in getting Obama re-elected. That is why, even though they knew days before the attack that it was going to occur, no effort was made to bolster security. It was intended to be non-existent. The Libyan security forces were intended to quietly slip into the night when the attack began. And they did, just as planned. That is why, even though 2 C-130U gunships, which were built SPECIFICALLY for this kind of attack, and which could have saved the lives of our people there and were a mere 45 minutes away, were never scrambled at any time during the attack. There was to be no resistance whatsoever. That is why there were not one, but TWO armed drones flying over the consulate during the conflagration... our CIA operatives on the ground were painting targets because they knew air cover was available. That is why, even though requesting support and backup three times, their requests were NOT ignored, but were intentionally, specifically DENIED three times, and they were told to “stand down,” which basically means to “surrender.” That was part of Obama’s plan. They were not to fight back. That would potentially undermine the kidnapping effort and cause unnecessary “complications.” That is why, even though the CIA operatives and ex-Navy Seals were on the ground, providing real-time reports, and even though they were “lighting up” the source of the mortars attacking the compound with lasers, no gunships or support ever came. They weren’t supposed to resist. That wasn’t “part of the plan.” It also wasn’t part of the plan for one of the CIA operatives to intentionally defy Obama’s orders, and who rescued the body of Sean Smith and then stood up again orders, and engaged the enemy who was attacking American soil. It was supposed to be “clean.” Quick. Efficient. Kidnap the Ambassador and get out. Then Save The Day in the “nick of time.” They didn’t factor in a tiny group of highly trained ex-Navy Seals/CIA operatives... American Patriots and heroes. Even though they eventually lost their lives in the firefight, they managed to employ the full measure of their skills, and took out over 80 attackers in the process... which enraged the attackers, who were led to believe that they would encounter no resistance. THAT is why Ambassador Stevens was raped, murdered, and dragged through the streets. In their warped minds, they believed that they had been betrayed by the U.S. yet again. They believed that Obama was their friend. They believed that they were going to get their beloved Blind Sheik back. And yet, here were 80 of their own... dead by American hands. Obama was asked directly in an interview if he denied their request for assistance, he refused to answer, and instead droned on with a canned response promising to “bring those responsible to justice.” Former CIA and State Dept. personnel are coming out now with damning evidence that indicts President Obama, and reveals the truth about what is going on. Hillary Clinton, who is now openly laying the blame at the feet of the President, after falling on her sword in a premature show of loyalty for the Administration. The “Video” defense was carefully crafted WEEKS in advance, to explain the attack. If this doesn’t outrage you, you are not a Patriot. If you are not moved enough to contact your congressman about this, you are not worthy of your citizenship.
The Republican Senators are obsessing about a bump in the road. Obama is obsessing about a sand trap.
A quick answer of no to the question asked, though the no goes deep; not too deep to understand, simply deep in cover up utilized by those who ran from standing up. The difficulty in bringing the facts into the light of day is nearly impossible when all sides work to keep the cover up covered up in multiple layers of cover up. FReepers have done an excellent job of exposing the truth. The truth regrettably is covered up by the majority while the truth is actually on the surface and exposed by a minority who have the truth. Best Guess is ... soon those trying to cover up will decide those digging at the truth will have to be covered up. Stay Safe, everyone. The new normal is in place.
I guess one false story after another is just a sign of trying to get to the "truth"...
This time they are actually trying to get the job done. Time for a little applause.
Sometimes timng is everythinh. Andreeeeuuuhhhh with 5 inches of makeup, knows that ths is a non political season. she knows she can get away with actually covering the news. She is still as far left as they come. But, just trying to gin up a little cover for herself when she goes whole hog to the left again in the near future.
Your comment brings to mind the televised remarks of Sen. Ayotte after the meeting with Amb. Rice.
Am I the only one who saw intense emotion in the senator? It struck me she had just experienced a severe verbal altercation or even a borderline physical altercation. She was practically trembling; certainly her voice was quavering.
It left me thinking that that meeting was seriously hostile.
Free things were a problem no doubt.
But,its hard to counter two traitors— one a fat basturd from nj and the other a former military guy doing commercials for the commie in-chief. Add in no charisma for Mitt,lots of voter fraud and you have a close election not as close.
The fake kidnap story was out right after the attack. Then there was no more mention of it. Here it is again. I believe this is what really happened.
Wikipedia has some scary information about Susie and is worth the read. She is a UN globalist, probably a marxist and can not be SOS. Apaet from Benghazi there are many other reasons to be concerned. Be sure and read the last sentence.
“Rice acknowledged the many mistakes made at the time and felt that a debt needed repaying. The inability or failure of the Clinton administration to do anything about the genocide would inform her later views on possible military interventions. She would later say of the experience: “I swore to myself that if I ever faced such a crisis again, I would come down on the side of dramatic action, going down in flames if that was required.””
The Benghazi investigators keep repeating the same stuff we’ve been hearing for months. The questioners in the meeting with Rice each stated how disturbed they were but gave us no new information. Are the questioners just blowing smoke?

When I advanced this very same theory weeks ago I was pummled by everyone and was tossed aroud as a conspiracy nut.
Still makes lot of sense to me.
Hillary Clinton failed in her duties to protect our foreign service personnel despite multiple requests for additional security, and Obama LEFT four Americans to die during on attack on our sovereign territory.
But no worries, Dear Leader has stated that it is just a bump on the road to better relations with the islamic world
The above sentence is where this unsourced obvious conspiracy theory falls down. There is no way that trading the Blind Sheik for Amb. Stevens would make Obama “look like a hero.” On the contrary, it would be seen as Obama getting punked to get his ambassador back.
Besides drug use, what other immoral acts by consenting adults should be illegal? (Any straight sex acts you'd like to see illegal?)
Rice is the front cover for a personal operation planned by POSHITUS.
A much more comprehensive investigation needs to be done.
The “Ally Oops, an ambassador and 3 operatives are dead!” explanation just does not cut it.This is essentially what Rice is saying “ They were expendable!”, and she needs to be run out on a rail.
Lets get the truth from someone who knows. Whistle anyone?
POSHITUS is worried and afraid. Rice wants the SOS position. Who wants Rice, a step and fetch for POSHITUS as SOS?
That may not be the biggest pile of bull turds we've had come out of a demonicRat Regime in the last 20 years, but it's definitely Top 10 material.
He could not counter attack the terrorists attackers back then and he still cannot counter attack them to this very day. That is what needs to be answered. When will these clowns running our country actually strike back at Al Qeada for Benghazi ?
I don't know. McConnell and Boehner are about as useful as tits on a goose.
