Skip to comments.Statement by the Dir. of Public Affairs for the Dir. of National Intelligence...[more coverup smoke]
Posted on 09/29/2012 3:07:03 AM PDT by Bulwinkle
In the aftermath of the terrorist attack on U.S. personnel and facilities in Benghazi, Libya, the Intelligence Community launched a comprehensive effort to determine the circumstances surrounding the assault and to identity the perpetrators. We also reviewed all available intelligence to determine if there might be follow-on attacks against our people or facilities in Libya or elsewhere in the world...
As the Intelligence Community collects and analyzes more information related to the attack, our understanding of the event continues to evolve. In the immediate aftermath, there was information that led us to assess that the attack began spontaneously following protests earlier that day at our embassy in Cairo. We provided that initial assessment to Executive Branch officials and members of Congress, who used that information to discuss the attack publicly and provide updates as they became available. Throughout our investigation we continued to emphasize that information gathered was preliminary and evolving.

2. This is just a PR Guy's statement, not a statement from the Director!
“In the aftermath of the terrorist attack on U.S. personnel and facilities in Benghazi, Libya, the Intelligence Community launched a comprehensive effort...”
And, THERE is the 0bama Security/Intelligence policy in a nutshell...”In the aftermath...”
Negligence by design is the hallmark of this criminal enterprise that is the 0bama administration. And, America suffers as a result.
Even the statement is a complete lie. In the immediate aftermath the survivors were evacuated to Italy for debriefing and by 9/12 had related the use of Assault rifles, mortars, RPGs, etc.
And to claim that three days later, when Susan Rice (conveniently left out of the intelligence loop) paraded around with the video story, that intelligence STILL hadn't figured out a planned attack is just bull squash.
Let's see the time line NOW, not after the election.
Another CYA attempt at an explanation of Obama’s failure. All government agencies are now doing nothing but covering up their incompetency and his.
This is very dangerous.
It is also typical of totalitarian especially extreme leftist regimes.
Time to roll out that army of low level lackeys to maintain degrees of seperation. Lie, obfuscate, obstruct and detract.
There is one bit of evdence that cannot be denied.
It happened on 9/11.
If they had “intelligence” that would tell them everything they need to know.
The cat is out of the bag boys, nobody believes these stupid excuses.
Absolutely correct. All of these people and agencies will say exactly whatever the party line is. These are all issuances from the Ministry of Truth. On a related matter, the increasing politicization of all levels of government and especially the military show that the day is coming when the military and paramilitary forces will fire on US citizens, despite the belief that that could never happen.

...or your liein’ eyes
And why, pray tell, does the DNI even NEED an Office of Public Affairs?
CYA for the Administration.
I’d say the ‘immediate aftermath’ probably should have lasted about two hours.
