James Clapper Goes Under The Bus – Update – Not The Clap’s Fault, May Be Bush’s

NRO reports that it is a no-go on the Claps hypovehiculation, fingers point back at the White House:

A congressional source familiar with the testimony delivered Thursday by Director of National Intelligence James Clapper says that, in his testimony, Clapper was insistent that he did not alter the Benghazi talking points to remove references to al-Qaeda or terrorism. That raises questions about the latest CBS news report indicating that the talking points were edited in Clapper’s office. It was there, according to CBS, where ‘al-Qaeda’ and ‘terrorism’ disappeared from the unclassified version of the document that later found its way into the hands of UN Ambassador Susan Rice, and onto five Sunday morning news shows.

Augger says that it might be Bush’s fault if only you ignore the fact that he couldn’t possibly have had anything to do  with it and has been out of office for 4 years.

James Clapper, the MoBros favorite Director of National Intelligence, gets hypovehiculated:

CBS News has learned that the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (DNI) cut specific references to “al Qaeda” and “terrorism” from the unclassified talking points given to Ambassador Susan Rice on the Benghazi consulate attack – with the agreement of the CIA and FBI. The White House or State Department did not make those changes.

There has been considerable discussion about who made the changes to the talking points that Rice stuck to in her television appearances on Sept. 16 (video), five days after the attack that killed American Ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens, and three other U.S. nationals.

Republicans have accused her of making misleading statements by referring to the assault as a “spontaneous” demonstration by extremists. Some have suggested she used the terminology she did for political reasons.

However, an intelligence source tells CBS News correspondent Margaret Brennan the links to al Qaeda were deemed too “tenuous” to make public, because there was not strong confidence in the person providing the intelligence. CIA Director David Petraeus, however, told Congress he agreed to release the information — the reference to al Qaeda — in an early draft of the talking points, which were also distributed to select lawmakers.

“The intelligence community assessed from the very beginning that what happened in Benghazi was a terrorist attack.” DNI spokesman Shawn Turner tells CBS News. That information was shared at a classified level — which Rice, as a member of President Obama’s cabinet, would have been privy to.

An intelligence source says the talking points were passed from the CIA to the DNI, where the substantive edits were made, and then to FBI, which made more edits as part of “standard procedure.”

Of course Rice’s inaccurate statements helped Obama. There was no other reason to send her out there if there wasn’t benefit in it for him. The question that you have to ask is this: is a person so incurious and willing to be duped the right person for Secretary of State?

If I was her, I would be wondering why my “friends” allowed me to be hung out to dry.

  1. I’m amazed that this somehow isn’t Bush’s fault. By the time this is all said and done, there is going to be some hard feelings under the “Big Tent”.

    Kells: Good question. I’ll have to purge on it…….

    See where my mind deviates before rehearsals?

  3. The misinformation campaign by Rice succeeded to keep Obama clean until after the election. The election is over, so the ruffled feather crowd will huff and puff until they grow tired and move on to something else. No impeachment for Obama as Jarrett always provides deniability for her puppet. Some reshuffling of the staff, then they will all be brand new to continue with the implementation of the Manifesto.
