White House Throws CIA Under the Bus
Breitbart´s Big Government, by William Bigelow

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 11/18/2012 10:00:42 PM

The White House is doubling down on their assertions that they did not have the proper information when they sent Susan Rice out to the Sunday talk shows to claim the Benghazi attack was due to a video. They claim that the only edit they made to the information given them was to change the name of the attacked facility from “consulate” to “diplomatic facility.” Deputy national security adviser Ben Rhodes said Saturday: We were provided with points by the intelligence community that represented their assessment. The only edit made by the White House was the factual edit

Comments:
Pretty soon, the bus will need new ´´shocks,´´ as all those speed bumps ruin the undercarriage.

Ummm - - ummm - - can I - - can I ask a question?

Ummm - - like - - if the CIA didn´t say it was a pre-planned terror attack - - when they knew it was - - then who said the attack was the result of the video? If the CIA didn´t say that it was the video - - then who told Rice to go out and say it?

Ooops - - that´s two questions. Sorry.

Wouldn´t you think that after four years somebody under that bus would spill their guts ? Anybody that lies over Benghazi has murder on their conscience; if they have one.

Petraeus was pretty stupid talking about the video on 9/14. It plays right into Obominations´ hands. Someone needs to ask him where that came from. He needs to be asked what he knew about the security before 9/11 as well as whether any plans were under way to help the Embassy during the attacks.

This has got to be the most corrupt, illegal and malcontent admins. ever...from the WH, the cabinets, Congress, SCOTUS and the military. Everyone lies, covers up and out right breaks the law, and nothing happens. They just get re-elected, re-appointed and re-hired. And with the criminal-in-charge, AG, Holder, nothing will ever be done against those who protect and fall on their swords for the the big O.

This makes gangsta thugery look like child´s play. If BO and MO ever leave the WH, I bet half or more of the people´s property will be stolen and hidden (if has not already).

And I worry that we will have 8 more years after BO of liberal thugery.

Petraeus resigned so he wouldn´t have to lie for Obama before congress.Why else announce the affair 4 months after it ended?There could have been an element of blackmail also,he ust got tired of.

Paula Broadwell knows where a lot of bodies are buried. Right now the circumstances aren´t right for her to step up but that time will come.They could be hanging a Petraeus court martial over her head for silence.

I would hope that someone would have asked petraeus, under whose orders was the ambassador repeatedly stripped of security? Under whose orders were Americans left to fight and die, unassisted over a 9 hour stretch?
Focusing on who put the nonsense about the video into the talking points, is making a mockery of those men´s deaths.
We have a bunch of cowards in powerful positions who will not ask the important questions. And who, after seeing the video of the slaughter, seem oddly unaffected.

We already learned that Obama never ... that´s NEVER ... attended briefings from the intelligence community. Those would be the same briefings which W attended every single day, with few exceptions, for 8 years.
.... So, the claim that this president is not in receipt of the CIA information might actually be a true statement. ´It depends upon what the meaning of is is.´

The problem we have is that there are no players in this soap opera who are willing to step up because they fear retribution by Obama regime. We need a hero who will tell the truth come hell or high water. I thought Petraeus was that man but it appears I was wrong. The truth from a legitimate source could be the undoing of the Obama nightmare we are all living through. Is there just one honest man who is willing to step forward because it is the right thing to do.

You´re right poster #3 -- everything obama touches is dirty and turns into a disaster.....

Here in Illinois the demorats have run US into the ground -- financially -- and NOW they are talking about selling bonds to cover their pension shortfall to the citizens. What a joke!!

That´s what obama wants for America. It´s all about revenge and bringing America down to her knees so she can bow to the rest of the world.

After all -- he suffered as a kid in Asia. Which BTW -- is his homeland as far as he´s concerned. Why else his first visit to Asia???? It´s all starting to make sense....

Since when did the Ambassador to the UN become the official spokesperson for the CIA? What, they don´t have anybody designated to speak on their activities? Is the UN ambassador now like the volunteer Rotary Club speaker for administration departments? Absurd.

Someone with a sharp mind in DC, needs to cut to the core of this matter and find out
why Obama and his team murdered Ambassador Stevens and four patriotic Marines.
Just go ahead and charge Obama with murder, let him take the stand and explain why it
is not murder. It would be way better than getting bogged down on these details of
the back of forth of who knew what when and who didn´t. It´s madness. The Petraeus scandal is a lobbed smoke bomb. Don´t allow
the socialists to force their game on us. It´s way easier to make Obama prove a
"not", than it is for us to prove an intentional negative-why NO help or rescue team was sent. The key players just toss the "live hand grenade" of responsibility around, hope everyone tires of it and moves on. No key player is going to take a hit-face it.

Make Obama defend himself on the stand, similar to how Bill Clinton was
put up there. Make him prove the negative, of why this is NOT negligent homicide.
Then murder will stick, because there is no good defense by Obama. That was his JOB! Put that slimey weasel on the spot!

Have a spine DC. Things are only going to get worse if you let this go. Now´s your chance to save the country.

Lost in all the noise and smoke of who briefed Rice what and when is the Department of State and Hillary. The CIA can explain itself on its facility but the consulate or mission or diplomatic facility is State´s responsibility.

Has anyone confirmed beyond a doubt that no prisoners or detainees were being held at the CIA building? Perhaps Amb Stevens knew what was going on in that house and that the CIA under Petraeus and (Obama ultimately) was breaking the law....

Another thing lost in this is just how strongly O, Hill & Rice condemned the video and the American who produced it. He had the whole country on a manhunt. We were being 100% lied to, and yet they want to hang their hats on the fact that Obama happened to say the word terrorism somewhere in his speech.

Don´t worry -- the CIA will get its revenge. Richard Nixon is said to have believed to his dying day that the CIA was the principal engineer of the Watergate uproar, contributions by "Deep Throat" and Daniel Ellsberg "somebody read my shrink´s files!" notwithstanding.

The CIA is an powerful, entrenched part of our Permanent Government, and has a mind and viewpoint of its own, as political appointees at the "top" who presume to "reform" the CIA or make it look bad have found out. It tends to chew up and spit out directors who carry too much water for an administration, Democrat or Republican.

And if you think the FBI "eavesdropped" on the emails of a CIA Director without someone (or several someones) in the CIA being fully aware of it, then you no doubt spend your days awaiting visits from the Tooth Fairy, the Easter Bunny and the Big Grays from the constellation Zeta Reticuli.

Not only the video maker, #26, but we should also be talking about what blaming the video did to our embassies in other Muslim and some non-Muslim countries. Rioting muzzies burned our embassy buildings, endangered thousands of American diplomats, enabled access to classified information in those buildings and killed local citizens in countries all over the Middle East, Asia and Europe. And not just American embassies - the barbarians even went after the Swiss for God´s sake.

All of that destruction can be laid right at the feet of 0bama, PIAPS, Rice et al. Why are they and their crew of liars not being held accountable for that?

#30,
BECAUSE Valerie Jarrett is running the Presidency and NOT Obama. SHE is making the important decisions there. Obama is just the window dressings.

Who feeds Obama what to say on his teleprompter ??? Valerie Jarrett !!!

She was probably the one in the Situation Room, and made the decision, and told everyone, that they should not bother Obama, because he had to get rest to campaign in Las Vegas the next day !!!

She did the same thing when Osama was killed !!! (only then, somebody had the guts to go around Her and go directly to Obama, this time they didn´t)

The White House´s lame excuse is like saying, "The dog ate my homework." The "White House", as in Barack Hussein Obama, is paid to know what is in intelligence briefings, and to act appropriately in such a situation as the Benghazi attack.

The intelligence community should refuse to jump under BHO/BS´s big black bus, or fall on the sword for that matter. That sword has a double edged blade, and the white house is playing a dangerous game with the CIA and our military.

HHS nominee Burwell faces tight scrutiny

Lawmakers dug in Sunday for a proxy war over the new health care law, now that President Obama has selected a well-known manager to replace Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius and lead his signature program into a new era. Mr. Obama says his budget chief, Sylvia Mathews Burwell, is a “proven manager” who will lead HHS with distinction and build on whatever momentum the White House gained by signing up 7.5 million Americans in private health coverage from October to March. But Sen. Tim Scott, South Carolina Republican and member of the Senate Finance Committee that will vet

A woman has been arrested on six counts of murder after authorities found the bodies of seven infants packed into separate cardboard boxes at a home in Utah, police said. Police arrested Megan Huntsman, 39, of Pleasant Grove, on Saturday following a gruesome discovery at a residence formerly occupied by the woman who they say moved out in 2011. Officers responding to a phone call from a family member who is currently living at the Pleasant Grove residence arrived at the home to find the first baby which "appeared to be a full term," according to a police statement.

NASA will launch SpaceX’s Dragon cargo ship to the International Space Station on Monday as planned despite a failure in a backup electronics box for the station’s robotic arm. NASA mission managers said Saturday that the crew on board the ISS is in no danger, but a problem in a backup computer component could have forced a postponement, NBC reports. NASA announced Sunday, however, it would proceed with the launch from Cape Canaveral, Fla. late Monday afternoon. The SpaceX Dragon capsule, which is slated to carry 4,600 pounds of supplies to the International Space Station, is scheduled to launch on a SpaceX Falcon 9

Outgoing Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius says the administration´s own predictions that the new health care law´s online sign-up system would be ready by Oct. 1 were "just flat out wrong." Sebelius told NBC´s "Meet the Press" in an interview airing Sunday the health care website´s launch was "terribly flawed and terribly difficult." She says that eight-week period was her low point of her tenure. Sebelius last week announced her resignation. She says she wanted to give President Barack Obama enough time to bring in a new health chief. Sebelius´ resignation comes just a week after sign-ups for

Pope poses for ´selfies´

Vatican City - Pope Francis, marking Palm Sunday in a packed St. Peter´s Square, ignored his prepared homily and spoke entirely off-the-cuff in a remarkable departure from practice. Later, he continued to stray from the script by hopping off his popemobile to pose for "selfies" with young people and also sipping tea passed to him from the crowd. In his homily, Francis called on people, himself included, to look into their own hearts to see how they are living their lives. "Has my life fallen asleep?" Francis asked after listening to a Gospel account of how Jesus´ disciples fell asleep shortly before he was betrayed by Judas before his crucifixion.

(Snip) McCain said the rising unrest is the result of U.S. failure to "enact anything really meaningful and important as a result of [Russian President] Vladimir Putin´s incursion and annexation under Crimea, which was predictable. And what he´s doing now is predictable." The Arizona senator, who been in close contact with members of the provisional

More than 100 city teachers, administrators and other school staffers have been caught in the last five years engaging in sexual or “inappropriate” relationships with students, The Post has learned. The special commissioner of investigation for city schools, Richard Condon, has fielded 593 complaints about such illicit relationships since April 2009. His office substantiated 104 cases, it ­revealed Friday. “I’m absolutely stunned at that number,” said Laura Timoney, a Community Education Council member whose 15-year-old daughter attends a city high school on Staten Island. “It’s shocking, but what do you do to stop this?”

Sen. Rand Paul said Sunday he will not decide whether to run for president until after the mid-term elections, noting he still has to poll his family before he builds on straw poll victories and launches an earnest bid. In a wide-ranging interview with ABC’s Jonathan Karl, the Kentucky Republican said the GOP needs to “evolve, change and grow” if it wants to win again, and that he wants to be a part of that. He also deflected his positive polling with modesty. “I guess it’s better than not being noticed,” Mr. Paul said. On immigration, he said former Florida Gov.

An automated pot-selling machine was unveiled at an event held at an Avon, Colo., restaurant Saturday, promising a potential new era of selling marijuana and pot-infused snacks from vending machines directly to customers. Its creators say the machine, called the ZaZZZ, uses biometrics to verify a customer´s age. The machine is climate-controlled to keep its product fresh. You may be picturing a vending machine on a sidewalk, ready to dispense pot brownies to anyone with correct change. That´s not quite what backers of the machine have in mind. For now, at least, the ZaZZZ is aimed for use only by medical marijuana patients.

Slaviansk, Ukraine - Ukrainian security forces launched an operation on Sunday to clear pro-Russian separatists from state buildings in the eastern city of Slaviansk, with dead reported on both sides as Kiev combated what it calls an act of aggression by Moscow. With East-West relations in crisis, NATO described the appearance in eastern Ukraine of men with specialized Russian weapons and identical uniforms without insignia - as previously worn by Moscow´s troops when they seized Crimea - as a "grave development". Ukraine faces a rash of rebellions in the east that it says are inspired and directed by the Kremlin.

Who throws a shoe? Honestly! That would be 36-year-old Alison Ernst of Phoenix, Arizona, who was charged Thursday night with disorderly conduct by the Las Vegas Police Department after allegedly throwing a shoe at former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. According to NBC News, who spoke with a Secret Service official, the U.S. Attorney’s office has declined federal prosecution. Ernst was wearing shoes on Thursday night when she attended a speech Clinton was giving in Las Vegas, but apparently brought an extra one specifically to throw at the former secretary of state. The official said the incident appeared to be “premeditated.”

Many Americans have been watching with great consternation the ongoing struggle between the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Marshals against Cliven Bundy and his family. There are no signs of either side relinquishing their position. Many onlookers have been informed that this dispute is over protecting the desert tortoise. But it is nothing of the sort. In fact, the reality of the dispute goes far underneath what is being talked about. The more appropriate source of the dispute is ground water as well as surface water -- this is a war over water. Cliven Bundy and his

A Nevada cattle rancher appears to have won his week-long battle with the federal government over a controversial cattle roundup that had led to the arrest of several protesters. Cliven Bundy went head to head with the Bureau of Land Management over the removal of hundreds of his cattle from federal land, where the government said they were grazing illegally. Bundy claims his herd of roughly 900 cattle have grazed on the land along the riverbed near Bunkerville, 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, since 1870 and threatened a "range war" against the BLM on the Bundy Ranch website after one of

Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA) is now accusing the Keystone pipeline of being a cancer risk. Her first point was that the pipeline “will bring 830,000 barrels of dirty tar sands oil into our nation every day.” She then segued to point #2 by asserting that the heavy tar sands oil will put people who live near refineries at risk for cancer: Significantly higher levels of dangerous air pollutants and carcinogens have been documented downwind from tar sands refineries, and in these areas people are suffering higher rates of the types of cancers linked to these toxic chemicals, including leukemia and

Let me obliterate a bit of confusion here: the Obama administration attempted to go to war with a rancher in Nevada. Let me amplify a little bit of truth: They tucked tail and have returned home. And let me add a bit of clarity: they had no choice! As the nation began to become familiar with the plight of the family of Cliven Bundy, many of us harkened back to another standoff in which the Federal government attempted to bully it´s outcome: Waco, Texas and the Branch Davidian massacre. It is telling that in the Nevada case the feds pulled out so

President Obama stood Friday with the Rev. Al Sharpton and accused Republicans of trying to keep millions of Americans from voting, in a fiery speech days after new revelations about Sharpton’s past as an FBI informant. “The right to vote is threatened today in a way that it has not been since the Voting Rights Act became law nearly five decades ago,” Obama told the annual convention of Sharpton’s National Action Network in Manhattan. Obama’s appearance represented a presidential seal of approval of Sharpton’s role as a civil rights activist, amid the new revelations about how Sharpton used a wire to record

They’re both qualified, respectful of each other (shocker!), and represent the vast majority of middle America. So what’s not to like about another Clinton/Bush race for 2016? When you mention the prospect of Clinton vs. Bush 2016 a funny thing happens. First, there is the reflexive response: "Oh no, not again. We don´t need more dynastic politics in this country." But upon further reflection, you realize Jeb Bush vs. Hillary Clinton would be a great race and actually good for the country. Let´s review. QUALIFICATIONS—THEY’VE BOTH GOT THEM. Barack Obama won the presidency because in an election where the premium was on change, it mattered little

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today. Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says. ‘Large-scale changes in energy systems’ are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar. And the transformation needs to be made in the next 15 years or controlling climate change will become increasingly harder and more expensive. The report was published

LAS VEGAS — The Nevada Republican Party stripped opposition to abortion and gay marriage from its platform Saturday as state convention delegates instead focused on judging fellow Republicans on their worthiness to serve in office and adherence to GOP values. The platform, with few changes, was adopted overwhelmingly as the Las Vegas convention stretched late into the evening. The vote mirrors that of the Clark County GOP, which voted earlier to remove platform language defining marriage as between a man and a woman and statements opposing abortion. Many Republicans are re-evaluating their strong stances on conservative social issues as public

Say what you will about Sens. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Ted Cruz (R-Tex.), but they know a train wreck when they see it. They also know when to separate themselves from the cranks and the losers on the right. Although both supported the shutdown and were heartily supported by tea party groups in their own Senate races, neither one has endorsed Matt Bevin in Kentucky, Milton Wolf in Kansas or Chris McDaniel in Mississippi. In fact, Cruz’s office confirms he hasn’t endorsed anyone in the primaries. He may weigh in after the primaries. Rand Paul has endorsed two very establishment

A brazen flash mob has been caught on camera storming a California store and making off with $20,000 worth of sunglasses. Surveillance footage shows eight women piling into a Sunglass Hut and crowding around display cases. Shielding workers from what they´re doing, they quickly stuff dozens of fashion specs into their bags. A store clerk pleads with them to stop, before running out of the shot to get help and dial 911. The thieves then all bolt outside and escape in a waiting SUV. The incident occurred at the Valencia Town Center mall, in Santa Clarita, at 3 p.m. on

It’s hardly been a secret that in recent years the moderate center of the Democrat party has been driven away and what remains is a conglomeration of disparate blocs which, to date, the party has been able to treat as if there were no conflicting interests between them. As the midterm elections approach and the administration’s incompetence, along with the distaste for the president’s signature ObamaCare legislation, drive the party’s chances down further, the make-believe coalition of opposites may well crumble if the opposition doesn’t blow it. Democrats hope to retain control of the Senate and recapture the House by driving
