Former CIA official accused of misleading lawmakers on Benghazi
Fox ^ | Feb 20, 2014 | Catherine Herridge

Posted on 02/20/2014 8:00:35 PM PST by what's up

Among other discrepancies, Republicans on the Senate Intelligence Committee allege Morell insisted the talking points were sent to the White House for informational purposes, and not for their input -- but emails, later released by the administration, showed otherwise.

"We found that there was actual coordination which could influence then -- and did influence -- what CIA conveyed to the committees about what happened [in Benghazi]," Sen. Richard Burr, R-N.C., told Fox News.

Another good piece by Herridge.

Remember when the WH, CIA and FBI were playing shell games over who changed the talking points (changed the excuse to a Youtube video)? The WH was insisting it didn't come up with the Youtube idea and was not in on the drafting of the talking points and the Youtube lies.

Now it appears this is erroneous. It was either Obama or Clinton who dreamed up the Youtube video lie. Morrell is covering for someone. My money's on Clinton.

Don’t forget the Iranian in the White Hut. She could have put forth that idea as well.

” - - - When asked specific questions about Republican allegations he provided misleading testimony, Morell did not answer the questions, instead referring Fox News to the CIA public affairs office. - - - “

Step by step the RINOs grind slowly toward the Oval Office and The Empty Chair where the buck stops.

I’m surprised Obama hasn’t yet tossed Clinton under the bus for Benghazi. Its not like he owes her loyalty. What does she have on him that’s preventing him from doing so I wonder.

I don’t know about treason, but I hope he testified under oath and if it’s shown that he lied, I hope the House brings charges. A bunch of people have to start going to jail before all this nonsense starts to come to a halt.

Morell was #2 at CIA. After the talking points scandal, presto, he leaves to join an outfit closely associated with Hillary.

Hillary is the candidate (why was Chelsea ordered to get pregnant?) and him dummying up is to protect Hillary.

“Before Mike Morrell left the CIA, he disclosed to the Wall Street Journal his interest in “advising future presidential campaigns.” Morrell then joined Beacon Global Strategies, a firm founded by Phillippe Reines, who has been described as Hillary Clinton’s “principal gatekeeper.” Morrell is currently a paid contributor for CBS News.”

Hillary Clinton is THE original source of the 'video did it' excuse for Benghazi, Cairo and all the rest of the embassy riots around the world. Hillary did it!

US Embassy in Cairo quietly deletes its ‘we stand by our condemnation’ tweet; Update: More deleted tweets!

Here is Hillary pushing it again on Sept. 13th.

Clinton: Anti-Islam Video 'Disgusting' (video 2:56)

Here is a 'senior administration official' trying to distance 0bamugabe from Hillary's f-up and at the same time admitting by inference that she was the source of the 'video did it' meme.

Senior administration official: The Cairo embassy’s statement does not reflect the view of the U.S. government; Update: Romney calls embassy statement “disgraceful”

posted at 10:34 pm on September 11, 2012 by Allahpundit

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.'

I think the source of the lie is in the White House.

If this was really Hillary’s screwup, she would have already been thrown under the bus by Obozo. This was a planned event, that went terribly wrong. Nothing else explains the lack of security, except possibly to hide the CIA activity at the Annex.

Hillary knows the truth about Obama’s real history. She knows what kind of a Devil he is and who he serves.

It is a Pact with the Devil.

Last catch-up Benghazi ping. Repeats a bit from the previous ping, but the more the better.

Let Republicanprofessor know if you want on or off this Benghazi ping list.

The embassy in Cairo was the first to bring up the video some 12 or more hours before the attack in Benghazi and Hillary herself Tweeted about it from the Cairo embassy Twitter account while the attack was ongoing but still early on.

That sounds like a preplanned excuse for knowledge of a preplanned attack, or am I misunderstanding that she tweeted too soon?

I think Hillary set up the video as an excuse for the protests they knew were coming to the Cairo embassy and others. She didn’t want the real reasons for the protests to be known. Then the jihadis hit the Benghazi consulate and CIA annex and she and 0buttboy thought they could use the theme they had in place to cover that too.

Ohhh, yeah! They went from mendacious lying to cover up a failed foreign policy to a criminal conspiracy to cover up murders caused by her inexcusable failure to provide security and his inexcusable failure to send help.

Treason charges and the consequences that follow.

Good theory.

She probably had the youtube video staked out for months to use if there was an attack in future. Hillary is THAT diabolical.

Nakoula was on probation with Fed charges hanging over him. Then he does his video, makes four versions with four name changes, gets no one in the theater in July '12 to see it then suddenly his Youtube trailer for it shows up in the hands of some cleric in Cairo who does a TV show a few weeks before Sept. 11th.

After the attack Hillary starts promising to put Nakoula in prison so he's yanked off the street for a probation violation (original charge was check kiting) yet his buddy who has done far worse and been under Fed surveillance for far longer is never picked up for anything.

Interesting that Nakoula the film maker is also a FedMob stooge.

Producer Of Anti-Islam Film Was Fed Snitch
L.A. man began cooperating after 2009 fraud bust

Interesting that Nakoula's websites track back to connections with 0bama.

Proof Positive - In My Opinion (who created Innocence of Muslims)(Obama)

Interesting that Nakoula's partner in the film was a palestinian Muslim with terrorist connections who was also watched by the Feds for three decades but never arrested and frequently bailed out by the Feds.

Why is the Coptic Christian filmmaker partners in crime with Coptic Christian hater?

Innocence of Muslims made by Terrorists

Nakoula and Eiad may have made the film.
Someone else handled "distribution" and "promotion" in Egypt.
