    The Romney campaign may have misfired with its suggestion that statements by President Obama and U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice about the Benghazi attack last month weren’t supported by intelligence, according to documents provided by a senior U.S. intelligence official.

    “Talking points” prepared by the CIA on Sept. 15, the same day that Rice taped three television appearances, support her description of the Sept. 11 attack on the U.S. Consulate as a reaction to Arab anger about an anti-Muslim video prepared in the United States. According to the CIA account, “The currently available information suggests that the demonstrations in Benghazi were spontaneously inspired by the protests at the U.S. Embassy in Cairo and evolved into a direct assault against the U.S. Consulate and subsequently its annex. There are indications that extremists participated in the violent demonstrations.”

    The senior intelligence official said the analysts’ judgment was based in part on monitoring of some of the Benghazi attackers, which showed they had been watching the Cairo protests live on television and talking about them before they assaulted the consulate.

    “We believe the timing of the attack was influenced by events in Cairo,” the senior official said, reaffirming the Cairo-Benghazi link. He said that judgment is repeated in a new report prepared this week for the House intelligence committee.

    Gee, whiz! Will the repubs now make some other issue out of this that isn't actually an issue? Probably!

    Direct "quotes" from a senior intelligence official there DD. Maybe Scooter Libby can provide the name.

    Uh huh.. yeah.. unnamed sources and unseen proof... yeah.. that makes it undeniable proof :rolleyes:

    When you get a real source, something that is not opinion, and actual evidence of the alleged supporting documents, let us know... until that time.. shut the fuck up

    Jesus Christ you lefties are morons.

    I could 'splain the rediculousness of this garbage but I'd rather sit back, point and laugh, as this whole thing blows up in the faces of Obama and the DNC.

    Carry on.
