Who Else But The White House Could Have Edited The Benghazi Talking Points?

Yesterday the White House denied that they had anything to do with editing references to terrorism generally, and al Qaeda specifically, from a report produced by the CIA about the attack in Bengahzi. But Senator Saxby Chambliss is wondering who else could have done it?

“Everybody there was asked do you know who made these changes; and nobody knew,” said Senator Chambliss referring to testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee. “The only entity that reviewed the talking points that was not there was the White House.”

After all, every other agency in the chain of custody of those talking points has testified before Congress (and under oath) that they weren’t responsible for the edits:


As I noted yesterday, more disturbing than the idea that the White House is lying about doing the editing is the idea that they don’t know who edited the talking points in between the time when they were produced by the CIA and one of their top officials started using them with the national media.
