Benghazi Talking Points
The Sean Hannity Show - Articles ^ | May 10, 2013 | Sean Hannity

Posted on 05/10/2013 4:39:03 PM PDT by real_patriotic_american

Piggybacking off of the original Benghazi talking points reported by the Weekly Standard's Stephen Hayes, ABC News' Jonathan Karl has now obtained more versions of the revisions. The latest reporting shows that the talking points related to Benghazi underwent 12 revisions. Not only that, but after repeatedly claiming that the talking points were crafted by the CIA and the intelligence community, White House emails obtained by ABC News shows that the State Department did, in fact, play a key role in the changes …

Will Obama and Hillary craft a way to get out of this mess or blame each other? Will the Media support Hillary or Obama or both if they both have different stories. None of these people are honest with the facts.

I’m wondering the same thing. Who will succeed in throwing the other under the bus - Hillary or Obama?

The liberal Democratic media will have to make a choice between Obama and Hillary. Maybe Rahm can broker a deal for them with the media and which form of propaganda to utilize. The Democratic Party cannot take the hit since it is the same as the Democratic Media.

And...there we NO mention of the cause being any YouTube Video from the CIA.

That was completely fabricated by the Whore House and State Dept.

Carney jumped the Shark at today’s Presser.
Given his attempt on behalf of the White House and state dept. To throw the CIA under the bus I’d wager money the two spooks considering testifying are now going to spill all.

Bad move by the Amateurs. Watch as the CIA smoke some political ass!

Listening to CArney today, it is obvious they are trying to hang the CIA with this mess. It is an OBVIOUS lie. The administration is now committed to, no going back without severe collateral damage.

I had no doubt when he was taken down it was at the hands of Nero and Hitlary with DOJ and Holder doing the bidding because he wasn’t liking covering for the gun running and Murder in Brngazi.

I don’t have any doubt that is why General Hamm was also relieved of Duty.

B’OR just told Jerry “the nose” Rivers that Carney is going to HAVE to produce the emails. Excuse me? Why would this corrupt administration be expected to do the right thing...ever?

I'm trying to find a transcript of that presser. Have you seen it?



"Riamh nár dhruid ó sbairn lann!"

Genuflectimus non ad principem sed ad Principem Pacis!

Listen, O isles, unto me; and hearken, ye people, from far; The LORD hath called me from the womb; from the bowels of my mother hath he made mention of my name. (Isaiah 49:1 KJV)

This Benghazi scandal is growing and growing! The more they try to wiggle out of it, the deeper the hole for the Obama Regime gets.

This needs to be kept front-of-mind when hearing the DemocRat's talking points about anything regarding Benghazi:

Issues:
1) the State Department had the necessary budget
2) wanted Benghazi to become a permanent consulate
3) it was 1 of only 15 sites out of 300 globally to be rated at the 2 highest levels
4) and MOST DAMNING - ignored multiple formal requests to bring it up to legal standards after multiple, serious security incidents

There are only 15 facilities around the world rated "high" or "critical" - out of almost 300. The Benghazi site was rated "critical" (the highest threat) and needed H.R. Clinton's authorization to operate it while at the officially documented, legally deficient state of security, before the attack.

H.R. Clinton told Stevens, presumably ordered by Obama, that this admin's goal was to make Benghazi a permanent consulate. But, career state department employees were threatened, and demoted, for using official channels to make basic requests for security before the mid-term election.

Holy Smoking Red Wine Bottles. I can barely keep up with the pings. :)
On a serious note. BULLSHIT to the claim the CIA fabricated the talking points. We now know DOS Pres Secretary Victoria Nuland was responsible for the so called "insensitive original prepare statements" and had them modified. Petreous got caught between a rock and a hard place on this one.

Someone risked a low presence in Benghazi. Was the risk honorable? The only reason I can think of to maintain a low profile to the point of endangering personnel, is to “play friends” with the locals under the notion we are all just citizens of the world like anyone else.

One should not undertake a risk like that without having the means at hand to intervene quickly and with force in the event matters get out of control. This whole thing is really bad news, even if one tries to put the best construction on it. With the people currently holding high office I find it very difficult to put the best construction on anything at all.

Subpoena Petreaus. His testimony could sink the 0’s ship.

Your statement should not be taken out of the rel-hm of possibilities. It is hard to believe at this point where the good general does not feel that he was betrayed.

“It is hard to believe at this point where the good general does not feel that he was betrayed.”

The 0 has already used one thing against him. He may, or may not have another bribe/extortion point. BUT at this time, would such an extortion threat be enough to keep Petreaus quiet? Prolly not.

He, no doubt, has enough info to sink the 0 lower than whale shit (and that’s at the bottom of the ocean!

In either event, the MSM will be shown to be the scum bags they truly are.

I have been known to use that phrases as well over the years. :)
RE: "BUT at this time, would such an extortion threat be enough to keep Petreaus quiet? Prolly not."

Agree. He would have nothing to lose. He probably is quite pissed off as how he was treated. The CIA would have been his playground for a few years.
