re: Jake Tapper: "Didn't President Obama 'shoot first and aim later'?"


quote:

For eight days after the attacks on the United States consulate in Benghazi, Libya, that killed four Americans, government officials said the attacks were a spontaneous reaction to an anti-Islam film. Now that officials have acknowledged they were a premeditated act of terrorism, the question some members Congress are trying to answer is why it took so long for the truth to come out.

Unclassified documents from the Central Intelligence Agency suggest the answer may have to do with so-called talking points written by the CIA and distributed to members of Congress and other government officials, including Susan Rice, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations. The documents, distributed three days after the attacks that killed Ambassador Chris Stevens, said the events were spontaneous.

The talking points say, among other things, “The currently available information suggests that the demonstrations in Benghazi were spontaneously inspired by the protests at the US Embassy in Cairo and evolved into a direct assault against the US diplomatic post in Benghazi and subsequently its annex. There are indications that extremists participated in the violent demonstrations.”

In addition, the briefing says this “assessment may change as additional information is collected” and that the “investigation is on-going.”

The theory that the attacks were spontaneous was echoed by White House Press Secretary Jay Carney on Sept. 14, just three days after the attacks, and again on Sept. 16 by Ambassador Rice. On Sept. 18, Carney said, “Based on information that we—our initial information, and that includes all information—we saw no evidence to back up claims by others that this was a preplanned or premeditated attack.”

The intelligence that helped inform those talking points—and what the U.S. public would ultimately be told—came in part from an intercept of a phone call between one of the alleged attackers and a middle manager from al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM), the group’s north African affiliate, according to U.S. officials familiar with the intercept. In the call, the alleged attacker said the locals went forward with the attack only after watching the riots that same day at the U.S. embassy in Cairo.

Hilary and the DOS have fricked up the admins narrative.

It's tough to defend/explain the original admin narrative when you have the State Dept. "coming clean" so to speak.

Poor Carney, his job is to answer for all of the lies. Lies that he himself probably had no part in concocting.

That Daily Beast article was written by Eli Lake, hardly an Obama flackey. Do you have anything to dispute the facts he has reported?

No. But the information that you bolded is nothing new.

We have known all along that the attacks used the riots as a cover.

So you're saying that people plotting to kill you isn't a threat worthy of concern? Only an actual attack?

This.

Susan Rice went out there saying the attack occured as a reaction to protests in Cairo. That wasn't true then (even based on your link) and it's not true now

WTF are you blabbering about?

Washington had A LIVE VIDEO FEED OF THE BENGHAZI ATTACK!

5 days later Susan Rice still emphatically claimed the attacks stemmed from spontaneous anti-video riots.

Yet, Washington had A LIVE VIDEO FEED OF THE BENGHAZI ATTACK!

The streets were dead quiet immediately prior to the Consulate being stormed.

Washington had A LIVE VIDEO FEED OF THE BENGHAZI ATTACK!

What is it about this abomination that you do not get?

Which came from the CIA's best assessment at the time...it was the same information they gave to everyone else. She made herself clear that it was the best information we had at the time and that things could change as we learned more about the incident. She said a final conclusion would be made after receiving results from investigations that are still ongoing. She said this over and over. I don't know how she could have said anything else, other than saying nothing...which I have no doubt would have generated even more controversy.
