This report confirms much of the worst:
“No witness has reported believing at any point that the attacks were anything but terrorist acts,” the report added.
On Saturday September 14, 2012, Deputy National Security Adviser Ben Rhodes wrote in an email titled “PREP CALL with Susan,” that one of the goals for the administration’s public statements should be “To underscore that these protests are rooted in an Internet video, and not a broader failure of policy.”
The report found the CIA’s Office of Public Affairs made three “substantive” changes to the talking points that included the removal of references to Al Qaeda and swapping the word “attacks” with “demonstrations.” It is not clear from the publicly available, and heavily redacted emails exactly who made the changes and who directed them…
Obama, the State Department and the CIA colluded to lie to the people, absolve Islamic terrorists and Islam of culpability and portray the attacks as a reaction against right-wing Islamophobia. This charming piece of bullshit appears to have originated with intelligence analysts and was latched onto by Rice, Hillary and Obama. Knowing full well it was a lie they pronounced it over the graves of the victims and repeated it for weeks on end.
