Intel officials unable to say
who changed CIA talking
points on Libya, lawmaker says

Fox News.com, by staff

Former CIA Director David Petraeus stoked the controversy over the Obama administration´s handling of the Libya terror attack, testifying Friday that references to "Al Qaeda involvement" were stripped from his agency´s original talking points -- while other intelligence officials were unable to say who changed the memo, according to a top lawmaker who was briefed. Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y., told Fox News that intelligence officials who testified in a closed-door hearing a day earlier, including Director of National Intelligence James Clapper and Acting CIA Director Mike Morell, said they did not know who changed the talking points.

Comments:
So does this mean if I just mail talking points to all the various departments with no header, they´ll just go out and regurgitate them with no concern where they came from? Did someone not think to bring their copies with them so they could look at the letter-head and answer the basic question? Getting a straight answer out of these people over the simplest detail is getting really maddening.

The CIA would have retained a copy of the original. Just ask them.

She didn´t know she was lying? Sorry, not buying. They had to coordinate to get the story straight beforehand. Besides which , she has a responsibility to ensure she is telling the truth if she is going to go on 5 Sunday shows.

Obama already told us where her talking points came from; Zippy himself, or the White House staff at his or Valerie´s direction.

Interesting wording in that headline:

What is it with these people. Do they have to lie about everything? You can bet they know who changed it and why.

My vote is that the guilty party is Tom Donlin, the NSC director. Bob Gates thought he was the source of the Bin Ladin leaks to the NY Times last year and told him to shut the f___ up about classified matters to the press.

Someone is lying. Most likely more than one person.

Subpoena everyone in the loop and interview them separately behind closed doors and find out whose stories don´t add up.

Be relentless and remind them all of the penalty for perjury.

Four good men died to protect Obama´s public image.

Someone has to pay for these crimes.

Find them. Prosecute them.

Oh my, oh my. Are they going to ask the tough questions? Who changed the cover-up story? Who´s sleeping with who?

These are not the questions that need to be asked.

Why have Russia, China and Iran very vocally allied themselves with Assad´s Syria? Why has Russia deployed troops to protect Russia´s mediteranean naval port, which is in Syria? Why has NATO pledged it´ full support to Turkey in any actions that Turkey decides to take against Syria? Why is Turkey so upset about missile attacks on their airforce? Why is the Russian representative in the UN condemning "someone" in the west of criminaly running guns from fallen Libya into Syria? Why after the latest attack on Turkish aircraft did a Turkish representative covertly meet with Stevens in Benghazi? How lucky is that Turkish representative to have left the meeting with Stevens minutes before an attack? Why is it that Russia, China, Iran, NATO, Turkey, the Islamic Brotherhood are all in Syria during a civil war making loud angry noises? Why is there no doubt in my mind that obama is running weapons to rebel forces in Syria (in all fair play obama does have a history with gun running in Mexico)? With all of the worlds military powers right in the middle of a nasty civil war with angry points of view, why is no one in washington asking anything about this situation?

Senator Paula Broadwell? It might have been. TIME Magazine reports that David Petraeus’ mistress considered running for as a Republican candidate for senate in North Carolina — but the then-CIA director was against the idea. In July, Broadwell was in Aspen, Colo., for the Aspen Security Forum, TIME said on Thursday, and told a handful of people that GOP financiers had approached her about a possible campaign. She told the acquaintances that when she informed Petraeus, he questioned her positions on issues ranging from abortion to gun control to taxes.

Obama Keeps Holder

President Obama is holding on to Eric Holder as the nation’s top law-enforcement official, The Post has learned. The newly re-elected president asked his controversial attorney general to stay for the second term, and Holder has agreed despite enduring a firestorm of criticism from Republican lawmakers. “I don’t know if everyone in the White House wants him [Holder] to stay, but the important guy does, and that’s all that matters,” said one person briefed on the matter. Holder’s office declined to comment. His hardest-fought battle came over the botched sting operation called Fast and Furious,

Washington - Anonymous harassing emails that Tampa socialite Jill Kelley turned over to the FBI contained information about the movements of CIA Director David Petraeus which was not publicly available, a law enforcement source told Reuters. The fact that the emails´ author - later determined to be Petraeus´ mistress Paula Broadwell - knew confidential information about the CIA chief´s activities was one of the main reasons the FBI felt compelled to launch an in-depth investigation into their origin and motivation, the source said. The emails, which a second law enforcement source said included

Tampa - The South Tampa woman connected to the Gen. David Petraeus scandal has called police to her home several times in the last few days, and at least once tried to invoke "diplomatic protection." Media from around the world have convened on the two-story Bayshore Boulevard home of Scott and Jill Kelley. Jill is the socialite mother of three whose FBI complaint about harassing emails eventually led investigators to uncover the CIA director´s affair with his biographer and is now linked to the name of a second top general.

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

Former Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.) said a number of junior GOP senators considering a presidential run in 2016 do not yet have the experience — specifically naming Rand Paul (Ky.), Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Ted Cruz (Texas). The former 1996 GOP presidential candidate sounded particularly skeptical of Cruz in an interview this week with The Wichita Eagle. "A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now. I don´t think they´ve got enough experience yet," Dole said. The 90-year-old former senator said, however, his main concern about 2016 is living

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Michelle Obama:

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

Fraud runs rampant in Census Bureau

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning

Republican victories could also put him out of a job, he cautioned. “We will live in a very, very, very different kind of country if that happens,” Professor Brent Terry told students in his Introduction to Creative Writing course, according to audio obtained by Campus Reform. “I mean, colleges will start closing up if these people have their way.” Over the course of his rant, Terry characterized conservatives

As he moves from lobbyists to the golf course, from press conferences to the tanning bed, he remains oblivious to all that is around him. He has power, incredible power, and yet to this day he has no understanding of the election that made it so. Moreover, all around him are astonishing opportunities for him to be an historic figure -- one who could and should be the man who did more than any other single person in turning back the red tide of Obama. It’s all there for Speaker of the House, and yet John Boehner manages to miss
