Skip to comments.The Benghazi Emails: Talking Points Changed at State Dept.'s Request
Posted on 05/15/2013 7:59:50 PM PDT by South40
After months of demands from Republicans in Congress, the White House has released emails related to what the administration said in the days after the terrorist attack in Benghazi.
The emails confirm the ABC News report that the so-called "talking points" written by the CIA on the attack underwent extensive revisions 12 versions and that substantial changes were made after the State Department expressed concerns.
The early versions of the talking points, drafted entirely by the CIA, included references to the al Qaeda affiliate Ansar al-Sharia and to previous CIA warnings about terror threats in Benghazi. State Department spokesman Victoria Nuland expressed concerns about including those references in the talking points.

Isn’t it amazing how these guys can come up with documents that could help them months after the questions start being asked. Almost like magic...
“What was that sound?”
“Hillary Clinton being thrown under a bus somewhere.”
Hillary “Speed Bump” Clinton.
She'e the demRATS' best chance of retaining the WH in 2016, don't you know.
Never underestimate the Bamster’s sense of self-preservation. The White House, through this e-mail release, is trying to place blame on the DoS and CIA.
I bet she wished she was back in the days of
“We are the President”.
Do tell us Hillary, when the 2 am phone call came what did you do to help those YOU placed in harms way.... other than order your staff to coverup your incompetence.
I feel sorry for the bus. Filthary deserves it.
But that dimwitted evil witch did not tell military to stand down
Impeachment File for B. Hussein Obama, aka Barry Soetoro, a legal citizen of the sovereign Nation of Indonesia.
Is the pressure to hot for Hildabeast to start pulling out data from her thousands of FBI files?
We know what Obama did - he went to bed so he could be well rested for his big fund raiser in Las Vegas!
Slick Willie’s wife is involved in this up to her eyeballs. The state controlled “media” has gone into “code blue” status.
“Are we ‘go’ for full release?”
Dang. Running colors. Her self and alinsky, could not, imagine, the damage done. Let’s survive, phuck ‘em.
I have little doubt that the woman from the IRS who "revealed" the targeting of conservative groups did that on orders by the Obama admin and/or by the Clintons in order to get Benghazi off the front pages.
You mean like coming up with a COLB that never existed?
"This morning's condemnation (issued before protest began) still stands. As does our condemnation of unjustified breach of the Embassy
US Embassy Cairo (@USEmbassyCairo) September 11, 2012"
(page removed now)
Then the last tweet of the day (actually 4:38 AM the next day Cairo time) from the Cairo embassy from Hillary herself...
10:38-39 p.m., 9/11/12. @StateDept tweets: " #SecClinton: I condemn in the strongest terms the attack on our mission in Benghazi today. http://state.gov #Libya" and "#SecClinton: We have confirmed one @StateDept officer was killed in #Libya. We are heartbroken by this terrible loss." Hillary Clinton issues a statement, saying, "I condemn in the strongest terms the attack on our mission in Benghazi today. As we work to secure our personnel and facilities, we have confirmed that one of our State Department officers was killed. We are heartbroken by this terrible loss. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and those who have suffered in this attack." She adds: "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."
That was when Hillary herself took over the Cairo embassy Twitter account and personally posted. (anyone who thinks she wasn't directing the earlier Tweets is smoking something) That was at 10:38 PM Eastern Time. That would have been 4:38 AM Sept. 13th in Benghazi. About the time Woods and Doherty were making their last stand.
And also just a few minutes after she and Obama conferred on the phone -- purportedly at 10:30 PM EDT.
In other words, she and Obama had agreed on the cover story fraud even before Woods and Doherty were killed...
One thing I find rather interesting is now the “media” are at least for now pulling the curtain back from the inner workings of this regime, some Americans are learning for the first time what “Benghazi” is, and why it matters. A great many Obama statues across the land may not receive their daily prayerful dusting and polishing.
Don’t know how long it’ll last, because American voters on the whole tend to have the sharpness of a marble, but some eyes are inevitably opening this week.
That is the first I heard about anyone talking to the Bamster after that meeting in the oval orifice before he reportedly retired for the evening.
Yup. Obama will throw Hillary under the bus. He cares much more about his legacy than who succeeds him or the Democratic party. He probably called her and told her the story he wanted out. Of course, she was only too happy to comply.
Don’t feel one bit sorry for Mrs “What difference does it make?”. They both deserve what they get.
The 12 changes—or however many it was— is NOT the issue. the issue is and ought remain the “cover up” the issue is and ought remain—the “mission” in Libya. Fast and Furious on steroids. Our Govt. selling guns and rockets the Syrian rebels?The issue is the White House attempt to misdirect NOW by the purported release of these e-mail that appear to excuse the White House and the Dept. of State. Me thinks Glenn Beck is once again spot on target on what these scandals Benghazi, the IRS thing and AP all have in common. question is is he allowed that freedom because the enemy thinks him discredited? Or is he allowed his freedom to draw others into their trap?
