In response to DamainAllen's comment:
Rice presented the same information that intelligence had provided to the White House and Congress. McCain and Graham are shamefully attacking someone for relaying the same information they had at the time. If nothing else this would appear to be a strong signal that the GOP is opposed to Rice heading up State, which is fine, but don't smear her with claims that are widely known to be BS. She was asked to present the findings and she did and as it turns out the information she had was not accurate, but for people who viewed her appearances she was careful to note each time that the investigation was ongoing and new details would likely emerge. She merely reported the information available at the time, not a comprehensive review that was represented as final and definative.
Sir, That "information" was total political higwash driven by political perspectives.
No demonstration on 9/11 was ever conducted at the embassy. NONE
Rice was the messenger for Obama. I got that.
I don't shoot messengers.. even if they lie their face off to Congress, the UN and the world.
Is our government so incompetent (or crooked) as not to know the truth weeks after the event?
I say no. They did know what the world now knows. This was a coverup is the only plausible explanation.
Sir, your opinion has very little credibility given your apparent disdain for the president which appears to color your thinking moreso than say, facts or reality. Second, in the context of the Benghazi attack we had protests in other Middle Eastern locations and all were explicitly connected to the video that was seen as inflamatory, and because this is important it was not the White House making that claim, the CIA was.
The CIA provided the following assessment on 9/15, which had previously been provided to the Admin and other Congrssional leaders:
“The currently available information suggests that the demonstrations in Benghazi were spontaneously inspired by the protests at the U.S. Embassy in Cairo and evolved into a direct assault against the U.S. Consulate and subsequently its annex. There are indications that extremists participated in the violent demonstrations.”
Rice's representations to the press were based on this information provided by the CIA.
By September 19th, intelligence had determined the attack was not spontaneous and was a terrorist action and that information was then provided to the press. Not weeks after, but in fact 8 days after. Is 8 days too long? Maybe. But given that the investigation was a coordinated effort by several different organizations the lag isn't surprising. Ultimately the question people need to ask themselves is do they want information fast or do they want it correct. The two are not the same, and fast may indeed be correct, but without validating evidence and following procedure we face the prospect of getting things wrong.
As for a cover up, you guys think everything is a cover up, when your suspicions aren't confirmed. To that point you have no credibility but I am sure you will keep singing that same song, just like how you were ABOSULTELY CERTAIN the election was going to be a huge landslide and takeover - even though there was no factual basis to think that, just like you were convinced an improved jobs report was clearly cooked - even though there was no factual basis to think that - the point being you like to fire and then aim and as a result you are always wrong. So wrong. Like the opposite of what you said happened occurred. Full on, no doubt about it, turn around 180 degress, flat out wrong.
Rational people would see this as a problem, but clearly being wrong isn't a concern, so I have to assume you like traffic in innuendo and lies simply because you think it hurts the president or at a minimum makes you feel better about yourself. But yeah, being wrong so often just confirms your willful ignorance of reality and the idea that even after getting your electoral backside swatted you still prefer the comfort of the bubble.
I eagerly await your drive by few lines of sarcasm in response, complete with some derogatory comment about the President, and perhaps even another suggestion of conspiracy.
