House Intelligence Chair: CIA Talking Points Were Changed By White House

And other things you were already pretty sure of. But he gets more specific than your hunch probably was.

Rep. Mike Rogers (R-Mich.), chairman of the House intelligence committee, says the unclassified talking points put together by the CIA changed when they got to administration appointees:

"[T]here was not an intelligence failure," Rogers told "Meet the Press" on Sunday.

"The intelligence community had it right, and they had it right early. What happened was it worked its way up through the system of the so-called talking points, which everyone refers to, and then it went up to what’s called a deputy’s committee...It went to the so-called deputy’s committee, that’s populated by appointees from the administration. That’s where the narrative changed. And so how that thing got back to (Susan) Rice, I think, is probably another question."

And so the White House worked strenuously to provide the American public with a false narrative about the events in Benghazi.

I have this strange notion that whenever someone is assiduously working against the truth, the truth probably does not favor that person.
