Feinstein: ´Talking points were wrong´
Politico, by Tarini Parti

Original Article

Posted By:Scottyboy, 5/12/2013 11:50:51 AM

Sen. Dianne Feinstein says the talking points used on the Sunday news shows following the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, were wrong, adding that the administration should have been quicker in calling it a terrorist act. “I think the talking points were wrong,” the California Democrat who chairs the Senate Intelligence Committee, said Sunday on NBC´s “Meet the Press.” “I think the talking points should not be written by the intelligence community.” “Unfortunately," she added, "the word extremist was used which isn’t not as crystal clear as terrorist.”

Comments:
Gee Dianne, just a few months ago you were saying than criticizing Rice´s "wrong" statements meant you were anti-woman and racist to boot..
The left is circling the wagons around Madam Rodham....ain´t gonna work.
Her hoove prints are all over this.

In a Weekly Standard article entitled "The Benghazi Scandal Grows," - posted here yesterday ... at the very end it said:

Correction: This piece originally said that Victoria Nuland suggested changes to the talking points because she was concerned about criticism from Republicans in Congress. That´s inaccurate. She suggested changes because of concerns from members of Congress.

Perhaps Diane knows who those members of Congress are?

For once I watched this show. Gregory was in Turbo Kneepad mode. He definately was out to protect Obambi and Hitlery. But even Gregory couldn´t protect Feinstein from this colossal slip up. Gregory tired to blame the Rebublicnas, Bush and ever one els but the administration. It was shameful.

So deliberate lies are now called "talking points". Intentionally misleading the public is now "talking points".

When I hear people openly referring to "talking points".....it begs the question: Why are "talking points" necessary? Can´t they simply report what occurred as opposed to trying to spin their version of what they wish had occurred? That´s a rhetorical question.

‘Talking points’ is an euphemism for ‘co-ordinated lies´ repeated ad-infitinum by all in an effort to bend recorded history to the desired story. No matter the outcome of this particular event, all these ‘talking points’ are embedded in the story, providing future historians ways and means to shade history to their own desires and beliefs.
“Just the facts, Ma-am,” no longer applies.

Sweetheart, look at me - actions speak LOUDER than words. Actions that were deliberate, actions of ordering a stand-down of our forces that resulted in the deaths of good Americans.Deliberate actions of falsifying a cover up story and then continuing to pedal it for weeks. Deliberate actions of continuing to soft-pedal what happened "such a long time ago"! Go ask the relatives of the dead Americans what they think of your worthless tripe!

You are right #13, Hillary and her Flying Monkeys popularized the term in their coordinated obfuscation campaign to save Bill´s corrupt ass.
They also created the term "Listening Tour" so Hillary could campaign and get her photo taken with children and minorities without having to answer any questions about her history of malfeasance.

No, Feinstein, the talking points were an outright LIE. The State Department had to change them TWELVE times before they were satisfied. Then 0bama LIED in his speech to the UN saying it was a film; Hillary lied when she used taxpayer money to run an add in Muslim Land to say the murders of four brave Americans were a result of this disgusting film, then they sent out Susan Rice to peddle the same LIES. Yes, the talking points were wrong, but much more than that the talking points were LIES, peddled by 0bama and Hillary. They should be ashamed.

In Feinstein´s world, "telling a lie" is the same as the same as "being wrong." So in her world, the crime of perjury should be renamed "being wrong under oath." Such is the Liberal alternative universe.

The talking points were an unusual condensation of the briefing given to leaders of the House and Senate Intelligence Committees. They were to be non-confidential information to be shared with the public. The briefing and the original talking points indicated that this was a terrorist attack. Feinstein and Chambliss in the Senate and Rogers and Rupperburger in the House knew the story was being changed from that given in the briefing as each edition of the talking points came out.

#13, #15 Yeah, times change all right...
Spin was formerly called propaganda. Propaganda was disinformation, counter-information, the big lie...Understanding Propaganda was an elective undergraduate course offered at most state universities.
Spin has become a nod-nod, wink-wink feature on the media Cleverness Scale since the Clinton era---a measure of what politicians can get away with if they´re only just folksy, quick or corrupt enough.
Call it spin or propaganda. Either one needs a gullible audience. Lowfos fill the bill perfectly.

Geldof was pronounced dead by paramedics at her home in southeast England on Monday.

The President is no economic illiterate, despite what conservatives think. He understands basic macroeconomics just fine, thank you – but with a twist. Mainstream Democrats worship at the altar of the New Deal. It’s an article of faith that massive government spending pulled America out of the Great Depression. (With all respect to Paul Krugman, the truth is more complicated, but that’s not within the scope of this article.)The president’s view of spending, deficits and debt is not merely Keynesian theory run amok. Its origins and objectives are far more terrifying. Where the traditional Democratic playbook for economic downturns was provided

WASHINGTON — About the only thing former President Ronald Reagan doesn´t have named after him is a mountain, not one recognized by the federal government anyway.(snip)Rep. Jared Huffman, D-Calif., said he thought DeFazio´s amendment was "terrific" but wanted to take it a step further and name the planet after Reagan.

A majority of Americans believe that President Barack Obama’s signature health care law will be repealed. A new Rasmussen Reports poll found that 62 percent of likely voters believe that Republicans will repeal Obamacare, which recently marked its fourth anniversary. Only 23 percent of those polled believe that the health care law has been a success, compared to 46 percent who describe the law as a failure. Louisiana Gov.

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.

The son of the Nevada rancher locked in an increasingly tense land dispute with the federal government, says their cowboys managed to break a blockade and retrieve around 30 head of cattle. Federal agents swooped on Tuesday after Cliven Bundy, dubbed the last remaining rancher in southern Nevada, refused to remove his herd of 900 cows from land he claims has been in his family since 1870. The heavily-armed federal agents, equipped with eight helicopters and backed-up by snipers, surrounded the Bundy ranch after the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) attained a federal court order to confiscate the family´s herd.

Following the massacre of grammar-school children in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012, high-powered weapons have been used to kill innocent victims in more senseless public incidents. Those killings, however, are only a fragment of the total harm caused by the misuse of firearms. Each year, more than 30,000 people die in the United States in firearm-related incidents. Many of those deaths involve handguns. The adoption of rules that will lessen the number of those incidents should be a matter of primary concern to both federal and state legislators.

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

Nearly a year into the IRS scandal, we still don´t know exactly what happened—though we are finally getting an inkling. That´s thanks to the letter House Ways and Means Chairman Dave Camp sent this week to the Justice Department recommending a criminal probe of Lois Lerner. The average citizen might be dizzied by the torrent of confusing terms—BOLO lists, Tigta, 501(c)(4)—and the array of accusations that have made up this IRS investigation.

STAMFORD, Conn. — Jeb Bush defended his controversial comments about immigration reform, insisting they were nothing new for him and urging “sensitivity to the immigrant experience.” At a Connecticut Republican party dinner Thursday night, the former Republican governor of Florida did not repeat his remarks from last weekend at his father’s presidential library, when he said that people who come to the United States illegally in search of a better life for their children “broke the law, but it’s not a felony.

There is mainstream media-suppressed case history in Nevada the feds are desperately trying to keep under wraps. Chief Judge Robert C. Jones of the Federal District Court of Nevada smacked down high-handed, abusive feds, sending the pretend cowboys riding roughshod over Western ranchers and property owners back to their cobweb-laced offices in 2013. In spite of their 200 armed snipers with boy toys in tow, those Stetson-wearing feds hunkering down on Cliven
