Benghazi emails suggest White House aide involved in prepping Rice for ‘video’ explanation
Fox News ^ | April 29, 2014 | Catherine Herridge

Posted on 04/29/2014 1:13:20 PM PDT by blueplum

Newly released emails on the Benghazi terror attack suggest a senior White House aide played a central role in preparing former U.N. ambassador Susan Rice for her controversial Sunday show appearances -- where she wrongly blamed protests over an Internet video.

:snip:

The Rhodes email, with the subject line: "RE: PREP Call with Susan: Saturday at 4:00 pm ET," was sent to a dozen members of the administration's inner circle, including key members of the White House communications team such as Press Secretary Jay Carney.

In the email, Rhodes specifically draws attention to the anti-Islam Internet video, without distinguishing whether the Benghazi attack was different from protests elsewhere.

The email lists the following two goals, among others: "To underscore that these protests are rooted in an Internet video, and not a broader failure of policy." "To reinforce the President and Administration's strength and steadiness in dealing with difficult challenges."

They had to lie — otherwise the most transparent Pressdent in history wouldn’t have been reelected.

"To underscore that these protests are rooted in an Internet video, and not the obvious, embarrassing truth."

Obama is as shocked as anyone and was completely unaware of what the Obama Administration was doing. Obama vows that the Obama Administration will get to the bottom of it, and hold the Republicans to account for any wrongdoing...and the Tea Party is racist.

We knew that. This administration was willing to let 4 Americans die rather than annoy his true love - the bearded savages of the ROP.

Previously the WH was going to let Morell hang in the wind for this. But how could Morell have been the first to come up with the "Youtube video" story when Hillary tweeted an apology for it at 10:38 PM that night? When the Cairo embassy was Tweeting apologies to Muslims almost 24 hours earlier, long before the attack in Benghazi?

Hillary Clinton is THE original source of the 'video did it' excuse used 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.

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’m going to guess that this was withheld from Issa’s committee? And if so, I’m also going to guess that the reveal will send Issa into orbit and he’s going to come down one mad bulldog.

as much as I would like to agree with you, I cannot give ANYONE in GOVERNMENT the Benefit of Doubt. I have to assume They All Knew and were trying to do some stupid thing like “Save the country” from a scandal, when it is all about Saving their own asses from the hangman’s noose.

great point ! what we haven’t answered yet, tho, is why Stephens was set up to be murdered? What did he have in his back pocket that Bhillero didn’t want exposed? or was Stephens just an unlucky participant in a sucker punch to increase hate for America by it’s own leaders? It would seem the SDS is alive and well and running America.

Those questions won’t be answered until someone starts spilling the beans. Sure makes you wonder why everyone who survived has been effectively gagged.

I heard somewhere today that the emails were sent but redacted so Issa and his committee didn’t see what was said.

Wish I had confidence that Issa would “take no prisoners.”

Issa is nothing but one big dog and pony show, been saying it for years, If they were serious, there would be a Select Committee, and the entire House would be on hand to vote for Contempt on the Spot, then the Chairman would IMMEDIATELY JAIL every last Recalcitrant witness for “Inherent Contempt”. With the ENTIRE HOUSE voting on it right then and there. I might Add Being Jailed for Inherent Contempt BY CONGRESS is not the same as Contempt of court, NOBODY CAN OVERTURN or even Review Congressional Decisions in this matter. and You Have NO RIGHT to an Attorney, or anything else, they could put you in GITMO tomorrow. It is not a “Court of Law” it is Above The Law in this respect.
