White House Emails May Show More Evidence Of Benghazi Cover up

Posted:

Newly released White House emails show efforts to change the administration storyline about the attacks on the American Embassy in Benghazi, with one report showing a State Department official pushing to get rid of a section of a document that she said would be used to "beat up" her department.

ABC News reported on Friday that the talking points that administration officials were to use when speaking of the attack were changed twelve times.  That is despite administration claims that its incorrect statements right after the attack reflected "the best intelligence at the time."

FoxNews.com quotes from the ABC News investigation, which showed the original talking points paragraph read:  

"The Agency has produced numerous pieces on the threat of extremists linked to al-Qa'ida in Benghazi and eastern Libya. These noted that, since April, there have been at least five other attacks against foreign interests in Benghazi by unidentified assailants, including the June attack against the British Ambassador's convoy. We cannot rule out the individuals has previously surveilled the U.S. facilities, also contributing to the efficacy of the attacks." 

But Nuland wrote that the lines  "could be abused by members [of Congress] to beat up the State Department for not paying attention to warnings, so why would we want to feed that either? Concerned ..." 

The paragraph in question was then reportedly deleted. 

There is also now a rising number of elected officials demanding that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton testify before congress, and some are demanding that she be under oath when that happens.

Also, as written by FoxNews.com:  

The Weekly Standard, which referenced the Nuland exchange briefly in a prior account, also reported new details Friday, describing how then-CIA Director David Petraeus voiced surprise when he learned the Saturday after the attack that officials had deleted all prior references to Al Qaeda and jihadists, leaving only the word "extremists." 

U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Susan Rice would use the final version of the talking points to say on several Sunday shows that the attack was triggered by protests over an anti-Islam film.
