A Benghazi Scandal Thatís Already Been Revealed: The CIA Believed A Media Mistake
TIME ^ | May 8, 2014 | by Massimo Calabresi

Here’s an unsolicited tip for Rep. Trey Gowdy: A smoking gun explanation for the Obama Administration’s use of false talking points has already been found. And the culprit is not a White House adviser or State Department bureaucrat. It’s the intelligence community’s reliance on the media.

It’s tucked inside the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence report on Benghazi, which reveals a key source of the bad intelligence that made it into Ambassador Susan Rice’s famous talking points: the media incorrectly reported that before the attack on Sept. 11, 2012 there were protests outside the U.S. facilities in Benghazi when there weren’t.

And the CIA believed those reports, resulting in talking points that were delivered to Ambassador Susan Rice

Time apparently has given up even trying to do any reporting. Just saying whatever.

Ya know, when the CIA gets thrown under the bus,
they aren’t going to like it or stand for it for
very long...

Since the CIA had men on the ground in Benghazi and Tripoli, and knew that the attacks were not the result of any video or protest, and TIME APPARENTLY DID NOT HAVE ANY REPORTERS AT THE SCENE, I’d go with Hickson’s congressional testimony.

TIME has been a disinformation magazine for decades.

Time doing the bidding of the White House. What is beyond incest? The media IS part of the Obama administration.

Most of the decisions made in Washington are media driven.

It’s the intelligence community’s reliance on the media.

That doesn't pass the smell test.

Those with access to real intel are not going to use the media as a source.

The spooks have embeds at all media sources so it is more likely that the media whoredom reported what they were told to report by the CIA embeds. The lying continues unabated and the media is shoveling it deeper.

“And the CIA believed those reports, resulting in talking points that were delivered to Ambassador Susan Rice”

Which she didn’t use and instead went on 5 talk shows and said it was a video.

Lies. Unrepentant, unashamed liars.

Anyone giving these liars and tools of the state a single dime for what they're peddling is a total fool.

If this is BS (and it is) the CIA will make sure the talking point is refuted.
