Benghazi Whistleblower: 'My Jaw Hit the Floor' as WH Blamed YouTube
Breitbart's Big Peace ^ | May 5, 2013 | John Sexton

Posted on 05/05/2013 8:09:32 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

In an appearance on Face the Nation this morning, Rep. Darrell Issa revealed several new pieces of information about the Obama administration's controversial description of the 2012 terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya, casting doubt that the White House mischaracterized its cause by mere accident.

"The talking points were right and then the talking points were wrong," Issa explained in response to a question about reporting at the Weekly Standard. The CIA and Greg Hicks, who took over as Charge d'Affairs in Libya after the death of Ambassador Chris Stevens, both knew immediately that it was an attack, not a protest.

Hicks, who did not appear on the show but whose reactions were featured based on transcripts of interviews with Issa's committee, said he was stunned by what UN Ambassador Susan Rice claimed on five different news shows on Sep. 16. When she appeared on Face the Nation, she followed an interview with the President of Libya who claimed he had "no doubt" it was a terror attack. Moments later, Amb. Rice contradicted him and claimed a spontaneous protest was more likely.

Acting Ambassador Hicks watched the Sunday shows and said he found this contradiction shocking. "The net impact of what has transpired is the spokesperson of the most powerful country in the world has basically said that the President of Libya is either a liar or doesn't know what he's talking about," he accused. Hicks added, "My jaw hit the floor as I watched this...I've never been as embarrassed in my life, in my career as on that day."

Hicks believes the stunning failure of diplomacy on the Sunday news shows explains why it took the FBI three weeks to gain access to the Benghazi site....

Yeah.

I thought maybe people would open up after Hillary’s departure from State. So this is a little slower than I anticipated, but I have no idea why.

According to KSFO am radio SF, the guy that made the anti-muslim terrorist You Tube video that the WH blamed for the 9/11 Benghazi attack is still in jail in San Diego CA. Maybe it’s time to let him out.

They blamed it —a huge foreign policy FIASCO— on a YouTube maker, a guy who is still in jail and who was in SOLITARY.

The Prez and his helpers framed up an innocent man.

I would like to know how the WH came up with the video so quickly after the attack. According to some accounts, that video had been viewed fewer than 20 times before Sep 11, 2012.

“And the guy who produced the video is still in jail?”

I don’t even know what to believe. Was there indeed a video, or was it just something some staffers patched together at the last minute? Do we have an actual photo of the videographer? All I saw was a guy with his face covered being dragged off to jail.

Hillary came up with "the video" many hours before the attack.

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

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.'

There were four versions of Nakoula's movie.

Only the final one was forwarded, by persons unknown, to Sheikh Khalid Abdullah the cleric in Cairo who aired it on TV. Nakoula, the maker of the original film, was not the one who uploaded the final version, Innocence of Muslims, to the internet.

You can hear some interesting things about the timeline of all these iterations of "the movie" in the Youtube video linked below. Start at 9:30 and watch to 16:00 for the meat of that.

Even the protests and attack in Cairo weren't about that stupid 'video.'

He had to assure that he was protected and lawyered up, plus he had to arrange for that golden book contract
for when he went public. All of the whistle blowers will
make huge volumes of coin of the realm. (I have no problem with that as long as the truth comes out). These kind of arrangements take time.

One of the differences between Benghazi and Watergate; in Watergate, the State Dept didn't frame a citizen and have him put in jail to cover up the President's own incompetence and inaction.
