Petraeus Testifies the CIA Approved Susan Rice’s Talking Points

Right wing still going nuts
Politics • Views: 24,856

The weird Republican conspiracy theories about the Benghazi attack are getting even weirder today, as David Petraeus testifies at a closed-door hearing and the right wing blogs fly into a frenzy of distorted fantasizing. Every single right wing blogger is hyperventilating over this today, right on cue like the parrots they are.

But here’s the bottom line to the latest episode of this cynical attempt to exploit a tragedy in order to harm the President: GOP Rep Admits CIA Approved U.N. Ambassador’s Talking Points on Libya.

That’s right; Peter King was forced to admit that the talking points used by Amb. Susan Rice were approved by the CIA:

After leaving the closed-door hearing, King spoke with reporters for several minutes about Petraeus’ statements. Rice’s television appearances were among the topics discussed, leading King to indicate that while Petraeus did not personally write Rice’s talking points, the CIA did approve them:

Q: Did he say why it was taken out of the talking points that [the attack] was Al Qaeda affiliated?

KING: He didn’t know.

Q: He didn’t know? What do you mean he didn’t know?

KING: They were not involved — it was done, the process was completed and they said, “Ok go with those talking points.” Again it’s interagency — I got the impression that 7, 8, 9 different agencies.

Q: Did he give you the impression that he was upset it was taken out?

KING: No.

Q: You said the CIA said “OK” to the revised report –

KING: No, well, they said in that, after it goes through the process, they OK’d it to go. Yeah, they said “Okay for it to go.”
