Republicans on the Senate Intelligence Committee finally received yesterday what they had demanded for months and it may have turned into an anti-climax. The White House allowed access to internal e-mails of the Obama administration regarding the preparation of talking points for Susan Rice after the attack on our Benghazi consulate, which some suspected would show that the Obama administration had changed the information to downplay terrorism as the basis of the attack. According to Chad Pergram at Fox, though, the e-mails dont show anything like that (via Kevin Glass):
Members of the Senate Intelligence Committee today received a classified briefing by an administration official on the various emails and documents assembled in the days after the September 11th attack in Benghazi. These emails were the precursor of the talking points which the administration then armed UN Ambassador Susan Rice and other officials with.
One source familiar with the briefing indicated that they did not believe the emails shed any new light on anything that was not already known and said the messages did not demonstrate an effort by the administration to deliberately downplay the role of al Qaida or terrorists.
They did, however, show CIA Director nominee John Brennan involved in the creation of those talking points:
President Obamas pick to head the CIA was involved in crafting controversial talking points about last years attack in Benghazi, Republicans said Tuesday after viewing intelligence documents.......

With more than 5 months of obfuscation at every possible turn, just for the Heck of it.
Don't look for any bomb shells in the 'Richard Windsor' Emails either. Those have been carefully scrubbed, altered and relevant ones destroyed. You can count on that. Eric Holder doesn't pop his head out too often.. He's busy sanitizing and destroying documents. Where was he and what was he doing leading up to the election? Coordinating massive voter fraud and ensuring efforts to STOP it were thwarted, that's what.
Depressing? Yes, but isn't that all this administration has been good for, for the last four years? Any real HOPE, progress and growth in jobs or the private sector or our foreign policy abroad? NO.
Better drop Benghazi. They got away with allowing their bearded savage buddies to murder Americans. The blame is on Republicans.
I won’t forget it, but the American public can hold only 1 thought in its collective mind at one time.
Could that source be a RAT, pray tell?
Calling Richard Windsor...

The White House is disavowing a statement from their own Cairo embassy that apologized for anti-Muslim activity in the United States.
The statement by Embassy Cairo was not cleared by Washington and does not reflect the views of the United States government, a senior administration official told POLITICO
Some have sought to justify this vicious behavior as a response to inflammatory material posted on the Internet. The United States deplores any intentional effort to denigrate the religious beliefs of others. Our commitment to religious tolerance goes back to the very beginning of our nation. But let me be clear: There is never any justification for violent acts of this kind, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said in a Tuesday statement.
And here 0bamugabe and Hillary work together to try to prop up her 'video did it' nonsense and spread it even further.
Nope, she never said anything about a 'video.'
