Appearing before Congressional committees on Friday, former CIA Director David Petraeus gave yet another version of events concerning Benghazi Gate, effectively throwing Barack Obama and his White House staff under the bus. According to those elected officials who attended the closed-door hearings, Petraeus claims that the intelligence assessment of the attack on our consulate in Benghazi, Libya, was immediately recognized as a terrorist attack. The the ′talking points memo′ provided to the White House, and later United Nations ambassador Susan Rice, clearly indicated this as well as the group Ansar al-Sharia, loosely affiliated with Al Qaeda, was responsible for the assault. However, somewhere along the food-chain, the memo was altered, disregarding any terrorist group as being involved and putting the blame on a ′flash-mob′ caused out of anger over a stupid You-Tube video few had seen. So who is telling the truth?
The White House on Friday, after Petraeus gave his testimony, did acknowledge one edit change in the memo that Rice later read from during her five appearances on Sunday morning talk shows. They say that they only changed the description of the consulate, calling it instead a ′government diplomatic facility.′ During his own press conference on Thursday, Barack Hussein Obama admitted that Rice was dispatched to do the Sunday talk shows by the White House. He even admitted that she had really nothing to do with Benghazi, which naturally begs the question why send her out in the first place? All of the actual ′players′ in Benghazi Gate, such as National Intelligence Chief James Clapper, were all in town that weekend and could have done the talk shows themselves. Why did they pass?
The current theory, answering these two questions, seems to go like this. Susan Rice was selected by Obama to do this ′mission′ for his administration as a test for her to be promoted to Secretary of State after Hillary Clinton leaves. That she would serve as a ′good soldier′ and provide political cover, since the White House knew that what she would say was not the truth. That Petraeus gave his preliminary testimony before Congress on September 14, also blaming the You-Tube video, despite knowing that the real cause was due to a terrorist attack, in order to save his job as CIA Director. That Barack Hussein Obama was holding the FBI investigation into the Petraeus-Paula Broadwell affair over Petraeus to force him to play along with deceiving the American people.
Oh, what a web we weave! The problem, as we all know, is that such cover-ups in Washington DC are bound to unravel. Benghazi Gate is far worse than Watergate in terms of the damage being done to our political institutions. Barack Hussein Obama is dragging America through the mud he himself created as he continues to lie and bully others from speaking the truth. Former CIA Director David Petraeus may be starting to shed light on the truth. If you think w have heard it all you are mistaken. The Benghazi talking points memo given to Susan Rice were altered by somebody at the White House. They admit to some editing already. As the story continues to unfold, the truth behind who did what and who knew and ordered the cover-up will come out. It always does.
