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

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 Kelleys have kept a low profile since news of the scandal broke,

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)
