Skip to comments.Did CIA official suppress Benghazi narrative? Accounts raise new questions
Posted on 02/14/2014 4:29:45 PM PST by Nachum
New information about the intelligence available in the immediate aftermath of the Benghazi attack raises questions about whether the former No. 2 at the CIA downplayed or dismissed reporting from his own people in Libya that it was a coordinated attack and not an out-of-control protest over an anti-Islam video.
Then-Deputy Director Mike Morell, whose own agency lost two employees at Benghazi, former Navy Seals Ty Woods and Glen Doherty, was heavily involved in editing the administrations internal narrative on what happened known as the talking points which served as the basis for then-U.N. Ambassador Susan Rices controversial claims about a protest on the Sunday talk shows after the attack.
According to the bipartisan Senate Intelligence Committee report on Benghazi, on Sept. 15, four days after the attack and one day before Rices appearance, the CIA's most senior operative on the ground in Libya emailed Morell and others at the agency that the attack was "not/not an escalation of protests."

The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Where was the supposed CIC and what was he doing?
making the glaringly obvious glaringly obvious means nothing to the blind eye
The very notion that people in Benghazi care about a Youtube video is preposterous. The assassins of our Ambassador and Navy Seals probably never surf the Youtube postings.
Clearly the “folks” in DC ordered and orchestrated the massacre and coverup. How could it be otherwise?
"CIA director David Petraeus was surprised when he read the freshly rewritten talking points an aide had emailed him in the early afternoon of Saturday, September 15. One day earlier, analysts with the CIAs Office of Terrorism Analysis had drafted a set of unclassified talking points policymakers could use to discuss the attacks in Benghazi, Libya. But this new versionproduced with input from senior Obama administration policymakerswas a shadow of the original."
NSA is collecting all the traffic, where are the records about obvious terror attack???
They subpoenaed Nixon tapes and fried him, lets get Benghazi tapes and records and see who did what and knew what!!!
Catherine Herridge has been doing a great job digging up details about this!
I have heard that Zwahiri encouraged this attack to avenge al Libi. Recently I heard that Al Libi was being held and questioned on a US ship in the Mediterranean, probably around that time. Perhaps the video story was floated to distract from that activity. Apparently a number of our embassies were under attach that day and the video was implicated there. Question: Was this possibly a legitimate coverup to support a worthwhile covert action(s)? Another question: How the heck did the CIA loose the maps to the Tora Bora caves when they could have been used to capture bin Laden? Who was in charge when that happened?
Another good piece by Herridge.
Is a bear Catholic? Does the pope poop in the woods?
If you haven’t done so already, read “Benghazi, the Definitive Report”. It makes sense. And I think Fox is going to make it into a movie..(from SoFrep Facebook site)
I also think this may be part of why Petraeus is giving a nod to Hillary...I think she has something big on the CIA and/or him. But Brennan is a real part of the problem...and he managed to slime his way out of his role in all of this...
Clearly Morell was just being the resident Pimp for Obama, Jarrett, Hildebilge, Biden, Hagel and other members of their Cabal. He was ordered to come up with a BS anti-truth report on CIA stationery and he did it...............pure and simple! Now, he is hiding from Herridge and her cameraman.
Petraeus, not wanting to play along, had his head chopped off because he could not keep his zipper in the North position!
Great job by one of the few “journalists” in this country!
I forgot - - - - . What is that crude expression about woods and bears?
[ I have to do something about my frequent half-heimers episodes!]
Hard for me to believe that the CCTV video wasn't reviewed until Sep 18. I would think that a major event like the Benghazi attack would have been followed live in all the situation rooms,(WH, DoD, CIA, StateDept) particularly the CIA.

Thanks gleeaikin for the ping but I don’t know how to address the questions. I’m clueless.
gleeaikin, am going to try to answer part of your question. Personally (and this is my opinion) I believe bin laden was never in the caves of Tora Bora. I think he was at the compound, where found, all along.
