    0 playing fast and loose to spin PR instead of facts. Lying to america right after a ambassador was murdered. Can't be. He wouldn't do that. Besides what difference would it make?

    Bill, the fact that you don't know what's different should tell you that nothing is.
    Remember, you got hoodwinked by the Lerner email because some rightwing website told you it was a blockbuster. In that case, you should have read the email.
    In this case, you should try to figure out what's really new about it.

    Bill if they can't admit that the regime lied then there is no hope for them. The e-mail contradicts what they said about talking points. Easy to connect the dots unless you don't want to. The whole plan was to control the dialog.

    Well now we know the WH (and at least one of their facilitators) who gave people like Rice and Carney got their talking points . We were told "the best information that was available" but now we see Rhodes instructed goals were "To reinforce the President and Administration's strength and steadiness in dealing with difficult challenges.",

    One would THINK this would be a pretty big story.

    So you accept the details reported by FOX News as true and accurate and not new?

    You thusly accept the fact it was then and is now a lie that the attacks were the result of some video?

    What then do you propose or believe was the reason to create this false cause and to tell and repeat it at the time of the attack?

    What does it say to you about the honesty and morality of those that participated in using a known false narrative?

    The story where we were told that no one in the White House was involved in the Sunday talking points is obliterated by these emails...

    That is a completely different story than was being told at the time.

    You guys may not like it, but there was intelligence at the time that said the protests were over the video. The CIA has confirmed it. The Senate report on Benghazi confirmed it.
    But you guys are still trying to pretend the WH simply made it all up?

    the quality of that intelligence was poor but it was what the administration wanted to hear so it got shoved to the front and trumpeted as the only real answer.

    this administration is and has always been full of yes men that only tell them what they want to hear or they are summarily dismissed. dissenting or unpopular opinions are not welcome.

    it is the surest sign of weakness and incompetence when somebody surrounds themselves with yes men (and women) and that is what 0 and VJ do.

    A perfect description of Bush and the Iraqi WMD intelligence.

    Oh sorry, were you talking about something else?

    No, the pretenders are you guys who are pretending that "the CIA has confirmed" that the attacks were tied to the video. That is simply not true.

    To the contrary, what the CIA said is that with their earliest intelligence assessment they did suspect that the attack on the Benghazi consulate may have happened spontaneously when an anti-American demonstration got out of hand, as opposed to being planned in advance. HOWEVER, they never had any information that the supposed demonstration had anything to do with that video.

    So yes, the White House made up the part about the video. It was a story line pushed by the Administration precisely for the reasons (quote, "Goals") stated inthe email from senior White House staffer Ben Rhodes: "To underscore that these protests are rooted in an Internet video, and not a broader failure of policy," and, "To reinforce the President and Administration's strength and steadiness in dealing with difficult challenges."

    Slowly but surely this is unraveling for the White House and Hillary. Gun running gone bad. Arms getting to Al Qaeda and used against us. Policy failure from the top including O and Hillary. Knowledge of this and lies to cover it up. Ties between top aide and top CBS brass. It's no coincidence Cheryl Atkisson was canned by CBS. She got to the bottom of it and they did not like it. Can't silence her now.

    Egypt uprising several hours earlier. Info of attacks forthcoming. White House and State Department do nothing and stand still. Then lie about not having time to respond to the attack. It goes on and on. Anyone who does not think this stinks to high heaven is just a blinded idealogue. Kind of like anyone who believes a video had anything to do with Bengazi.
