UPDATE: According to Senator Saxby Chambliss, Susan Rice knew she was lying to the American people about who was responsible for the Benghazi attacks. “Chambliss said Rice “went beyond” the talking points. “She even mentioned that under the leadership of Barack Obama we had decimated al Qaeda. Well, she knew at that time that al Qaeda was very likely responsible in part or in whole for the death of Ambassador Stevens,” he said.” So who told her to lie? Who changed the CIA memo sent by Petraeus’ office? Story here. Charles Krauthammer was right. Petraeus went along with the administration’s story in an effort to save his job and reputation. After the election, and after the administration had disposed of him, he’s now telling the truth about Benghazi.
In private hearings today before House and Senate Intelligence Committees, General David Petraeus testified that the CIA knew almost immediately that the attacks on our embassy in Benghazi were the results of a terrorism. The CIA memo was later stripped of any reference to “Al Quada involvement”. It has not been determined who changed the CIA talking points and who was responsible for sending UN Ambassador Susan Rice to the Sunday news programs to tell a different story than the one Petraeus claims to have presented previously to Congress, that the attack on 9/11 was a pre-planned result of Al Quada terrorism and not a spontaneous uprising because of a film trailer.
