Petraeus: CIA Talking Points Changed By ... ?Topics:
As was predicted by CNN, former CIA Chief David Petraeus testified today that CIA talking points on Benghazi attack were edited to play down al Qaeda links ... and as for who did it, he has no clue and the White House ain't sayin'.
Former CIA Director David Petraeus testified at a closed hearing on Friday that the CIA's original talking points on the Sept. 11 terror attack on Benghazi were edited to play down al Qaeda links to the attackers.So, BOTTOM LINE: All references to it being a terrorist attack were... removed from the original CIA document ... which leaves us with two critical questions. 1. WHY was it changed? 2. WHO changed it?
The latest revelation of the Obama administration's mishandling of the terror attack that killed four Americans in Libya was made by Rep. Peter King (R., N.Y.), chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, who said the disclosures by Petraeus were made during a closed-door House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence hearing.
"He said it went through a long process involving many agencies including the Department of Justice, the State Department, and no one knows yet exactly who came up with the final version of the talking points, other than to say the original talking points that were prepared by the CIA were different from the ones finally put out," King told reporters after a House Intelligence Committee closed-door hearing.
Petraeus met for 90 minutes with the House committee before moving to the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence.
White House spokesmen did not return emails seeking comment on who changed the talking points.
I'll venture to guess an answer to both questions right now: 1. The original version ran counter to the Obama campaign rhetoric that al-Qaeda was in decline. 2. It was changed by the Obama campaign!
Time is going to prove these answers to be correct!
Cover up? What cover up? The WH knows nothing about it. Those "talking points" just changed on their own somewhere between the CIA and Susan Rice's mouth.
