Skip to comments.Former Obama Speechwriter Behind Benghazi Cover-Up?
Posted on 05/09/2013 4:34:26 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
Writing at American Thinker, Ed Lasky points to Obama National Security Team member Ben Rhodes as the man possibly behind the Benghazi cover-up.
Lasky notes that when the Benghazi attacks took place, "CIA career officials clearly and repeatedly identified Al Qaeda and Al Qaeda-linked Islamic terrorists as the culprits behind the murder of four Americans." But the theory is that this news was suppressed because it "would cause embarrassment for the Obama team," which had spent years telling us Al Qaeda's best years were behind it and the "'tide of war' was receding."
Lasky asserts that Obama's 2009 Cairo speech began presenting this erroneous view of the world and progress in the War on Terror, but once the Benghazi attacks filled Americans' television screens on September 11, 2012, Rhodes was there to "alter CIA talking points," conforming them to the unrealistic depiction of the world Obama had presented in Cairo.
Rhodes, who authored the 2009 Cairo speech, is accused by Lasky of being the one who turned "attacks" into "demonstrations," and he or "someone [else] at White House level" allegedly injected the idea of a YouTube video "triggering spontaneous protests."(continued)

I just don’t think he would do that without full approval from BO himself. BO is behind the cover up and they need to find out what he is covering up.
This is probably the guy who insisted on the ‘video’ cause, and probably despite 97% of the cover-uppers demanding he didn’t.
That was the tip-off that Asssmear was behind it and not a sudden jihad syndrome thing.
Subpoena. And make sure Ben is under oath. I can’t imagine Obama claiming executive privilege with a speech writer. OR would he?
The problem is there are too many witnesses for hitlary to ‘Vince Foster”.
Time to put money down on who the fall guy/person will be.
Betting tip : Not The One now the Smartest Woman in the World.
I don’t buy all this. They will throw someone under the bus to protect Obumer and Hillary. This may be the guy.
Ben Rhodes is brother to the head of CBS.
Sad thing is — Hussein actually believes he is the President.
Ben Rhodes is the brother of CBS News president David Rhodes.
This thing would have been impossible, even laughable, but for the MSM being Obama's wingman. They even had Candy Crowley in place at the debate to shut Romney down and keep the cover up going.
Hell..the way things are run at Obama’s WH, he probably gave the stand down orders. Obama was probably coked out and out of it.
Another fall guy for Barry, but all roads lead to the kenyan usurper!
“0bama speechwriter” only spins how he is told to by the one he writes the speech for. Don’t get distracted.
Rhodes is the typist. The policy is Obama pure and simple.
I’m hoping that this time, most know by now that it was Hillary and BO who were supposed to be in charge and they failed massively. I hope they aren’t going to get away with it this time. The Senators will look like fools if the 2 in charge get away without a scratch. Like Gowdy said, he doesn’t care who’s career it ends.
Read the American Thinker piece too.....Rhodes has no qualifications other than being a fiction writer and an anti Semitic Jew hater.
I just have been shaking my head all day long watching my country be destroyed from within from my little spot on the universe. Very sad.
I hate to say it, but Rhodes may be where this trail ends. If Valerie Jarrett or Obama told him to change the talking points, they almost certainly did it verbally, with no paper or email trail we can pin to them. Rhodes will probably fall on his sword for his “team” and say it was all his idea to make the changes. Even if he doesn’t, if he names names, it’s no good unless you can prove it.
Ah.... I was wondering which low-level schlub they were going to toss under the bus to keep Hillary safe from blame.
