Skip to comments.Did CIA's Mike Morell Lie About Benghazi For Obama?

Benghazi: Former CIA acting Director Mike Morell might be recalled for testimony to determine if he misled Congress and doctored the White House response to a terrorist attack to ensure President Obama's re-election.
The administration's tangled web of Benghazi lies might be unraveling some more. House Intelligence Committee Chairman Mike Rogers, R-Mich., has told Fox News that Morell, a former deputy director and twice acting director of the Central Intelligence Agency, will likely be recalled to testify.
The recall comes after new charges surfaced that Morell misled Congress about what he knew regarding the 2012 Benghazi attack and when he knew it. There are also questions about his role in altering the talking points about the attack on our diplomatic mission to benefit Obama's re-election campaign and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's 2016 presidential run.
On Thursday, three senators who met with Morell and Susan Rice in late 2012 called for the former U.N. ambassador to testify before Congress as well.
Rice, now national security adviser, appeared on five Sunday talk shows five days after the attack, blaming it on protests. She recently reiterated that the talking points were based on the best-available intelligence.
We knew that was not true, and we now know Morell knew it was not true. As Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., has noted, ample intelligence on the night of, and in the days after, the attack indicated there was no protest.

Why don’t you ever post the authors name, John?
I predict he’ll pull a “Lerner” and take the fifth. Never mind that he’s already talked. So did Lerner.
Well if he did, he probably told the “least untruthful” lie about the situation .... that’s the administration’s talking points policy.
Many times IBD editorials don’t list an author. In those cases, I put “The Editors” in that line.
Zero’s not having much of a weekend.The talking heads shows tomorrow should be interesting.
That’s probably why he’s announced plans to be out of the country for almost the next 2 months, inflicting his presence on places like Mexico and Poland.
Why did Hillary and Obama use American taxpayer provided funds, equipment, personnel and facilities to overthrow the government of Libya?
I heard that there were protests in the countries scheduled to have an Obama visit.
So far, only Canada and the UK are the only ones with plausible step-by-step explanations. Fox News documented the time frame well.
It’s a rhetorical question.
I don’t blame them. I would raise hell if the son of a bitch came to my Country too.
If Congress can prove Morrell lied, can they do anything about it? Do they have to refer charges to the DOJ, where Eric Holder will do nothing?
I wouldn’t be a BIT SURPRISED!Mr. Morrell is “In Bed”with a LOT of people!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The answer to your question can be had by following the link.
Question should be,
Does anyone in this administration EVER tell the truth?
Just look at the maggot Jay Carney the ass clown.
And as for the head LIAR obammy? What a disgraceful turd.
I hope so. I recall the way they used to protest the harmless and well-meaning Bush, but of course, that was because the left got its international goons out. I don’t know if they’ll do the same for Herr Obama.
