The Media is now in full “protect Obama” mode, trying desperately to excuse the White House from changing the talking points given to them by the “intelligence community”. The media is trying to explain the unexplainable, excuse the unexcusable, and obfuscate the meaning of intentional lying.
Petraeus confirmed the initial explanations from the intelligence community gave the White House specific information about the cause of the Benghazi Attack being related to al-Qaeda related terrorists.
Why the intelligence was changed, who changed it, and what motive was there for the White House to use an unattached spokesperson, Susan Rice, is still theoretically unadmitted.
However, common sense tells you that CIA Director David Petraeus, FBI Director Robert Mueller, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, National Security Director Clapper, and others could not be used because they had the true knowledge of the attack. The “insiders” did not possess the needed distance for plausible deniability – Hence the White House needed a rube to sell the lie. They chose Susan Rice with the specific intention of falsely notifying the public.
Bottom Line: Susan Rice lied to the American People. She did so willingly and purposefully, with specific intent, because she was told to do so by President Obama.
