House Intelligence Chair Says White House Changed The Benghazi Talking Points
The White House says they didn’t do it, but the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee says the intelligence community’s report on the attack at Benghazi was altered when it reached a committee of Obama appointees:
Rep. Mike Rogers (R-Mich.), chairman of the House intelligence committee, says the unclassified talking points put together by the CIA changed when they got to administration appointees:
“[T]here was not an intelligence failure,” Rogers told “Meet the Press” on Sunday.
“The intelligence community had it right, and they had it right early. What happened was it worked its way up through the system of the so-called talking points, which everyone refers to, and then it went up to what’s called a deputy’s committee…It went to the so-called deputy’s committee, that’s populated by appointees from the administration. That’s where the narrative changed. And so how that thing got back to (Susan) Rice, I think, is probably another question.”
The narrative changed. The White House – Obama appointees on the deputy’s committee – changed it to suit their political agenda. And now they’re lying about it.
That’s shocking.Tags: Barack Obama, benghazi, libya, white house
