Petraeus testifies on Capitol Hill on Libya attack

Seems that the story was changed by someone in the Obama Administration.

Petraeus testifies on Capitol Hill on Libya attack

WASHINGTON — The CIA told the White House that the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi was a terror attack by an al-Qaeda linked group, but the assessment was altered by Obama administration officials, Gen. David Petraeus told the House Intelligence Committee.

It's clear as a bell that Obama (the "White House" as he calls it) didn't want any narrative out there that took from his "I've destroyed Al-Quida" storyline before the election.

From my Old Daddy about what an old time politician told him, "Say anything you have to before an election and make as many promises as you can because the people you lie to and make promises too needs in life may change and you will not have to do what you said or fulfill the promises you made. Besides it is always better to say no after an election than before." My 50+ years of observing elections tell me he knew what he was talking about.

Nope. He just removed himself from those who lied to the American people.

I seriously do not think anyone in the O admin. gives a flying crap. Why would they? They must got reelected in spite of all the damage they have done. The America people do not care. FOX can report until they are blue in the face and none of it will matter.

It's amusing that your dear leader gets caught with his hand in the cookie jar and you run to his defense. There is a difference between a lie and a conspiracy theory. It's clear Obama lied and that has been clear to all but the most ardent liberal supporters. He did so to protect his re-election. No shocker there. The left has proven time and time again they are willing to do whatever it takes to get or keep power.

You're right. They don't care. They will simply ignore this and hope it goes away. With the MSM in the tank they don't have to worry about getting heat for it.

"The original talking points put out by the CIA were different from what was later put out," King said. "Petraeus says his initial assessment was from the start it was a terrorist attack."...

Petraeus' testimony appears to be at odds with what he told the committee Sept. 14, three days after the attack, King said. Petraeus reportedly said then that the video may have sparked a protest outside the consulate that turned violent.
So was he lying then, or is he lying now?

Quote:
Petraeus didn't know why al-Qaeda involvement was taken out of the talking points...

But the CIA eventually approved the modified assessment, King said Petraeus told the committee. Why the CIA approved the talking points, which were made public by US ambassador to the UN Susan Rice and others, and who was involved in making the changes, King did not say.
Petraeus was Director of the CIA, but he didn't know why his organization approved the 'modified' assessment? Was he incompetent, or just out of touch with what his own people were doing?

Of course, the CIA would never keep some intelligence to themselves and give a different story to the public, coz that would be like, sneaky spy stuff!
