    Petraeus Testifies That He Knew Benghazi Was Terrorism Immediately … But CIA Info Was Changed?

    By: Jan Morgan
    11.16.2012



    For two hours, David Patraeus testified before lawmakers today. The most pertinent information from that testimony was this: the information and talking points intelligence turned over to the White House regarding the Libya attack, were CHANGED after they were handed over to the White House.

    The one question that has not been answered is WHO MADE THESE CHANGES BEFORE THEY WERE HANDED TO RICE for release? Whoever made this change is responsible for the dispersal of UNTRUTH to the American people and the world regarding the motives behind the attack.

    Petraeus testified in a closed-door hearing Friday morning that his agency determined immediately after the Sept. 11 Libya attack that “Al Qaeda involvement” was suspected — but the line was taken out in the final version circulated to administration officials, according to a top lawmaker who was briefed. Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y., who spoke to reporters after Petraeus testified before the House Intelligence Committee, indicated he and other lawmakers still have plenty of questions about the aftermath of the attack.

    So it still begs the question--the question that nobody at the press conference this week had the balls to ask--who told Ambassador Rice, days after the attack on Benghazi, to go out and tell a bald faced lie on five different Sunday news programs? Who changed the story? And why? And what was she promised in return for doing it? (And if she didn't know the truth by that time she is certainly too naive and clueless to be in that position and certainly is not competent for a promotion. And if she did know the truth and still put out the lie as adamently as she did, she is too dishonest for that position and/or promotion.)

    The spectacle of President Obama defending his pretty, delicate U.N. Ambassador at the press conference, and the press letting him get away with that, was an abomination to journalistic integrity. Can you imagine President Bush getting away with complaining that the press or the Democrats were unfairly picking on John Bolton?

    tiny, winy correction on that first sentence there:
    "For two hours, David Patraeus testified before lawmakers today. The most pertinent information from that testimony was this: the information and talking points intelligence turned over to the White House regarding the Libya attack, were CHANGED after they were handed over to the White House. "

    The word AFTER. Rep. Peter King stated in the press meeting after commission hearing that Petreaus did not know when the changes were made.

    People died and Barry & Co. lied.

    I suggest the OlBat and Truthy hold their breath until the lamestream media get outraged over it.

    And I believe him. Does anybody believe Petraeus is the only high ranking person that ever committed an indiscretion? And now that we know that this indiscretion was BEFORE he was appointed director of the CIA and was ancient history as far as he and his wife were concerned, it just doesn't meet the smell test that the Administration or anybody else would make a big deal out of that now. Sort of suggests somebody in the Administration, knowing that Petraeus wouldn't play ball in a lie, might have had motive to engineer the whole thing to get rid of him? But were foiled when he agreed to testify anyway?

    God willing Obama and his handlers and the leftwing press won't be able to bury this one as they have so many many other thing that should have been major scandals. If Susan Rice is appointed Secretary of State after this abomination, I fear we are doomed as a nation. There will be no truth, no honor, no justice, and no confidence that we can ever have in our government again.

    No. Oblamer stated in his rare press conference that Rice was summoned to the White House and given those Talking Points and ordered to spew them on the various TV shows.

    He didn't exactly say that. He did say, however, that she was speaking on his authority and if they have any problem with her, they should go after him.

    So the question remains:

    1. Did Susan Rice know the truth when she went out that day? If not why not? And how can you think somebody so clueless is suited to be Secretary of State?
    2. Did Susan Rice believe those talking points when she repeated them? If so, why would somebody willing to be so dishonest be a good choice for Secretary of State?
    3. Did you change the story Mr. President? If you didn't know the truth days after the CIA knew the truth, why aren't heads rolling? You said the buck stops with you. Well we're asking you to tell us who sent Susan Rice out with a lie? And if you and your people didn't know it was a lie by that time, how are YOU competent to be the executive with power over the FBI, CIA, and other intelligence?
    4. Did YOU tell Susan Rice to tell the lie, Mr. President? If not who did? And why has that person not been fired?

    Ya'll do understand that our enemies, the people who actually committed this crime, can also tune in to these broadcasts and gleen whatever information they can.

    Of course you do. Ya'll just like whining about the President.
