WH Benghazi emails have different quotes than earlier reported
Cbs ^ | May 16, 2013 | Major garrett

Posted on 05/07/2014 4:40:45 PM PDT by Bulwinkle

... On Friday, Republicans leaked what they said was a quote from Rhodes: "We must make sure that the talking points reflect all agency equities, including those of the State Department, and we don't want to undermine the FBI investigation."

But it turns out that in the actual email, Rhodes did not mention the State Department.

It read: "We need to resolve this in a way that respects all of the relevant equities, particularly the investigation."

Republicans also provided what they said was a quote from an email written by State Department spokesman Victoria Nuland.

The Republican version quotes Nuland discussing, "The penultimate point is a paragraph talking about all the previous warnings provided by the Agency (CIA) about al-Qaeda's presence and activities of al-Qaeda."

Three not necessarily mutually-exclusive choices:

1. The republicans are lying - a distinct possibility.

2. The democrats are lying - a near certainty.

3. The quotes are from different emails and both sets are mostly accurate (even if both are taken out of context).

Who was “getting shots” at the SpiteHouse 45 minutes before the first Benghazi e-mail came in?

So that's what the Rats will do.. bring their own "competing" versions to the hearings. . . .

Actually if tat is the case, the next question is, “why did the President lie on an FOIA request?” the. The follow up, “if you would lie on an FOIA request, what have you lied to the MSM about?”

Wish I knew and Rondeau is hoping to find out more, too.

From the site:

“I compiled this research over a year ago from the White House logs for the evening of September 11, 2012 (night of the Benghazi attack), but I was extremely worried about putting the truth out for fear of being targeted by the Obama Regime, even though it is public info that anyone can access.
However, after watching the recent Benghazi hearings and seeing scores of people (on Fox News mainly) ask, “What was Obama doing the night of Benghazi?”, “Where was he?”, “Why was he so disengaged?”, I decided to release my research for everyone to see in hopes that we can figure out what all of these people were doing in the West Wing that night.”

Hoping some brilliant FReepers can help.
And, praying Gowdy stays safe.

FYI to all in this forum...

Using MS Outlook (not the Express or other versions) all it takes is to open the email on your system, click Edit on the menu, edit the email and Save it. Except for the change in the Edit Date, no one would know you made changes to the original email you received. Especially since there is no track record they can access. I used to use this to clean up poorly worded emails from “educated” senders so I could know what they “really” said later when going back to review a request made.

I have no doubt someone in the current administration knows all about how to do this and liberally does so (pun intended). So, I am not at all surprised the email copies received are not the ones known to have useful evidence, but instead have innocent seeming texts. One has to request the raw email downloads, not those being sent upon request.

Also who in the WH received shots that night?

Thats called "tampering with evidence"
That's called knowingly submitting false information
That's called obfiscating the facts.
That's called obstruction of Justice
All of the above are criminally and civily liable offenses !

Yup.

Trey Gowdy needs to get to the bottom of this, - - - or does he?

Maybe Gowdy needs to get to the TOP of this?

Ponder this:

“- - - - get to the bottom of - - - -”

For strict adherence to The HE-WHO Transparency Executive Order, it must be fully disclosed that this is a phrase-quote taken directly from the Obama Community Organizer’s Handbook, commonly known as OCOH.

OCOH clearly lists a partial list of the desired effects of “getting to the bottom” of a useful crisis as follows:

* Attention will be directed away from HE-WHO that chose which crisis-of-the-day is worthy of his arrogant attention, usually requiring a teleprompter set, but often just the simple use of a pen or a phone;

* Before those at the bottom are partially found out, they must receive a severe tongue-lashing by HE-WHO, using all manner of vile accusations, including, but not limited to, the most hated of all phrases: making BONEHEADED Decisions;

* Before the crisis is incompletely resolved, Executive Orders must be put in place by HE-WHO himself “TO MAKE SURE THAT THIS NEVER HAPPENS AGAIN!”

* Additional inquiry into this phony crisis by The Enemies of Obamanation, must be clearly labeled as “political football,” or in persistent cases the ultimate PC Label White Guilt/Shame Word “Racists.”

If Gowdy is any kind of man with principle, he will go where the evidence leads and tell Bhoner to go to hell in public when invariably he will be told to back off.

I HOPE Gowdy is an honest man. But he’s gotta prove it to me. I trust nothing anymore and am far past giving benefits of doubt.

Like Fox Mulder, I want to believe. But I will believe what I see.

Yup, all true Conservatives are from Missouri, “The Show Me State!”

BTW, if Gowdy wants to be AG someday, then why oh why is he a co-sponsor of Boehner’s Amnesty for Illegal Alien Invaders from Mexico Bill?

These 30 million un-registered Democrat voters from corrupt and Socialist Mexico will insure that Democrats never lose a National Election again!

All Doormat Boehner has to do is not allow his Amnesty Bill onto the House Floor, and the already passed Reid-Senate Bill dies a well-served death!

Did Gowdy make a deal with Boehner?

Skeptical Conservative minds want to know - - - - .

His Amnesty thing is the exact reason why He’s gotta prove to me his intentions. Because right now he’s in the negative because of his words about it.

People say Yea but he’s a pit bull!.

See my earlier post about people on the right manipulated by hero worship. Pit bulls often turn on their handlers.

Please note they were all connected to the WH Office for Public Engagement, i.e., they were "Spin Doctors" with a specialty in communication with the Muslim world.

I have other articles saved from May 16th of last year and this one doesn’t jive. The emails they refer to here were released on May 15th, which was on a Wed. This CBS article says “On Friday, Republicans leaked what they said was a quote from Rhodes: “We must make sure that the talking points reflect all agency equities, including those of the State Department, and we don’t want to undermine the FBI investigation.”
On Friday? When May 16th last year was on a Thursday?

And none of them mention any contradictions regarding what Rhodes’ emails stated.

I missed this article last year and I probably missed others. But my pea brain doesn’t recall this contradiction coming up last year. That’s why when I noticed this was from last year, it struck me as odd.

Things that make ya go, “Hmmmmmmmm.”

A lot of the names listed for 8:30pm are of muslim (especially Pakistani) sports figures.

Here’s a scenario: WH and Hillary were so consumed with the “video riots” in countries other than Libya that they immediately misconstrued and ignored detail of what was occurring in Benghazi. Everything points to Obama and Hillary being panicked by those riots (remember the panic purchase of Pakistani TV time to personally grovel and beg the Pak muslims not to riot) and fearful that the “Arab Spring” mantra was going to blow up, so they blanketed the middle east with over-wrought apologies and egg-shell-stepping, hoping the failure of the Cairo Initiative would fade away.

Then, embarrassed about having started down the Road of Security Incompetence, they had a very hard time disengaging from their talking points and began to lie. And lie and lie some more. And stonewall.
