Director of National Intelligence edited the Benghazi talking points
While testifying under oath last week David Petraeus stated that he knew the attack on the United States consulate in Benghazi was a terrorist attack almost immediately. He also stated that the original talking points memo the CIA drew up about the attack contained references to the attack being related to al Qaeda but that someone edited the memo prior to the White House sending out Susan Rice to advance the cover up.
The White House has denied any role in the cover up and now according to this story we are learning that it was someone in the DNI who changed the talking points memo.
We are now being told the reason for the change is because the al Qaeda connection was still “tenuous” five days later even though David Petraeus, Barack Obama, and Hillary Clinton knew the truth almost immediately. We know the real reason why the terrorist link was omitted so shortly before the election, and it had nothing to do with the link being tenuous, but now that we know who edited the memo it is time to move on to the more important questions surrounding the terrorist attack in Benghazi because the cover up–while bad enough–isn’t the most important question here.
Now it is time we learned the answers to the most important questions: Why did the Obama regime ignore Chris Stevens’ pleas for more security? Why did the Obama regime remove security teams before the attack in spite of Chris Stevens’ pleas? Why did the Obama regime ignore the warnings that an attack was imminent? Why did Barack Obama skip intelligence meetings in the week leading up to September 11th when everyone knows this is a date terrorist would love to target for another attack? Why did Barack Obama not send in help after the attack started when it was in the area? Why did Barack Obama lie during the debate and claim he linked the attack to terrorism on September 12th if he really thought the link was too tenuous? How is it that the Obama regime already had the You Tube video excuse cued up and ready to go and is it because they were warned an attack was coming and did nothing to prevent it? Was the CIA annex in Benghazi really an illegal CIA black prison site? Was the Obama regime smuggling weapons recovered in Libya through Turkey and into Syria? And lastly, does Barack Obama still feel the deaths of four Americans was just “a bump in the road?”
The cover up is a big issue, don’t get me wrong, but it is not the biggest issue when it comes to the Benghazi attack. The big issue is what the Obama regime is trying to cover up, and that is what we need to know.
I don’t blame the Congress for focusing on the cover up to start the investigation for it is a very good starting point but that is all it should be. The real questions haven’t even been asked yet.
