    Government lawyers told U.S. District Court Judge Amit Mehta today that some of the 30 recovered emails relating to Benghazi ó they didnít say now many ó were not included in the 55,000 pages previously provided by Clinton. The State Departmentís lawyer also told the judge that the Department needs until the end of September to review the emails and redact potentially classified information before they are released. Judge Mehta was skeptical. He questioned why it would take so long to release so few documents, urged that the process be expedited, and ordered the department to report to him in...

But not sure it is worth the technical debate. So in your if pushed, you could say: >>> With regard to his materials, remember, Sid was never a federal employee.

    What’s better than a Friday afternoon document dump? The Holiday Eve Document Dump. It’s the Christmas gift that keeps on giving … to government officials that want a pretense at transparency while keeping too much notice falling on embarrassing revelations. The Obama administration used that option on Christmas Eve, but as reported by Politico’s Hanna Trudo, so much is redacted that it may not have made much difference anyway: Thursday’s document dump, put out by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence in compliance with a Freedom of Information request, includes correspondence sent from American intelligence officials in 2011...

    The Office of the Director of National Intelligence had quite the holiday news dump today: some heavily redacted emails about the infamous 2012 Benghazi attacks. According to The Hill, the emails include a Benghazi Intelligence Review and links to articles about the individuals who may have been involved in the attack. However, a lot of it is redacted. See for yourself: (Photos) As you can imagine, there’s not really much new information in there.

    While much of last week's news was about the smoking gun that linked the White House to the false talking points about the attack in Benghazi, another email that would have shed light on how those talking points came about was nearly completely redacted by the government. The email has as its subject, "SBU/CLOSEHOLD: 0800 SVTS on Movie Protests/Violence." SBU stands for "Sensitive But Unclassified" and SVTS most likely refers to "Secure Video Teleconference System." Ironically, though labeled unclassified, nearly the entirety of the email was redacted before it was given to Judicial Watch. It was written by Eric Pelofsky,...

    President Obama claims he was only repeating what the intelligence community told him when his administration asserted that the attack in Benghazi began with a spontaneous protest inspired by an Internet video. If thatís the case, there is a simple way to prove it: Give the new congressional select committee investigating Benghazi his daily intelligence briefings that show exactly what he was told. There is precedent for doing so. In 2004, at the request of the 9/11 Commission, President George W.

    The White House and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton have long tried to quell the controversy around the Sept. 11, 2012 attack on an American consulate in Benghazi that claimed the lives of U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three others. New revelations show that the issue is far from dead. Earlier this week, the conservative activist group Judicial Watch obtained emails that show the White House tried to link the attacks to fictional protests instead of calling it an al-Qaeda linked attack. In one email, White House official Ben Rhodes urged then U.N. ambassador Susan Rice and White House...
  • Lindsey Graham: White House officials Ďscumbagsí

    Sen. Lindsey Graham on Thursday again went after the Obama administration on Benghazi, calling White House officials ďscumbagsĒ that ďlied aboutĒ the September 2012 attacks. ďOur Democratic friends, for the most part, have been in the tank over Benghazi. They think itís to get me reelected,Ē the South Carolina Republican said on The Mike Gallagher Show on Thursday morning. ďSome guy said this about me yesterday on the left: The only reason I cared about this was because I have six tea party opponents.

    MRC president Brent Bozell appeared on ďThe Kelly FileĒ with substitute host Martha MacCallum to discuss new e-mails about Benghazi and Fox News coverage of Benghazi. The e-mails are between State Department PR operative Victoria Nuland and friendly Associated Press reporter Matt Lee, discussing the alleged ďBSĒ on Fox during ďThe OíReilly FactorĒ on September 13, 2012, two days after the consulate attacks. Bozell thought the Obama publicist and the AP reporter sounded way too much like each other. (Video, transcript below)

    Former CIA directory (and part of the Benghazi cover-up) went to work for Ben Rhodesí brother at CBS. David RHodes is the brother of Ďbig Bení and president of CBS News. Need any other reasons why CBS has ignored the latest e-mail released about the Benghazi cover-up? Surely there isnít a conflict of interest there right? Need another reason why Sharyl Attkinson left CBS?Michael Morell, who retired as deputy director of the CIA last summer, has joined CBS News as an intelligence, national security and counterterrorism contributor, the network announced this week. Morell has held various senior leadership positions during...

    Amazing exchange on Special Report today. Bret has some Obama 30 something "Ivy Leager" on today whom was in the Situation Room during the Benghazi attack. Bret was sticking needles in him to the point the little Marxist Punk referred to Bret as "Dude" Unfortunately Bret didn't respond to the Punk that this is serious stuff, not the remake of the Big Lebowski.

    In light of leaked emails regarding the 2012 Benghazi attack, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney and Fox News White House correspondent Ed Henry went head-to-head during Thursdayís press briefing. At one point, the press secretary took a jab at the reporter and his employer. After Henry questioned Carney over why the Ben Rhodes-authored emails focused on an anti-Islamic video rather than the terrorism aspect of the deadly siege, the press secretary remarked that the CIA-produced talking points at the time referred to protests at the Benghazi consulate as being inspired by similar demonstrations outside the American embassy in Cairo....

    Has the Benghazi "smoking gun" been found? Some White House critics believe that new documents wrestled from the White House by Judicial Watch, a conservative watchdog group, prove that the Obama administration concocted a cover-up: Political advisers pushed a false story that the murder of four Americans grew out of a protest against an anti-Islamic video in order to hide a policy failure that might hurt the president in an election year. The documents clearly show that the White House pushed the video story, but there's also proof that the White House believed the story they were pushing. ~snip~ It...

    April 30, 2014, 02:39 pm Carney: Email was not about Benghazi By Justin Sink Press secretary Jay Carney said Wednesday that a newly-revealed email showing a White House official preparing then-U.S. ambassador Susan Rice for television interviews was not explicitly in reference to the terror attack in Benghazi. "The email and the talking points were not about Benghazi," Carney said. "They were about the general situation in the Muslim world." A set of documents obtained by the conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch through a Freedom of Information Act request included an email from deputy national security adviser Ben Rhodes to...

    Judicial Watchís President Tom Fitton hit back at Jay Carney over false statements made by the White House press secretary during his heated exchange with ABCís Jon Karl regarding newly released emails about Benghazi. The emails were only released by the White House after Judicial Watch filed a lawsuit against them. Carney said that talking points given to Ambassador Susan Rice to recite on talk shows following the Benghazi attack centered around protests in the Middle East, not specifically pertaining to Benghazi. ďIf you look at that document, that document that weíre talking about today was about the overall environment...
