The chairwoman of the Senate Intelligence Committee singled out President Obama's top intelligence adviser for the mixed messages on last month's attack in Libya. Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) on Wednesday told the local CBS station in San Francisco that Obama initially called the attack that killed the U.S. ambassador and three Americans an “act of terror” in the days after the Sept. 11 assault on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi. She suggested the administration initially linked the attack to an anti-Islam video based on the assessment of Director of National Intelligence James Clapper. Clapper — a “very good individual” according to Feinstein — “put out some speaking points on the initial intelligence assessment,” she said. “I think that was possibly a mistake.”
So how does President Obama get out of the coverup?
Dianne Feinstein might have the answer. She blamed it on General James Clapper! Dianne Feinstein blamed intelligence, specifically General James Clapper, for the Benghazi misinformation in the following interview. She claimed it was verified in the debate. She said he gave out the initial “speaking points” which “was a mistake.” In other words, it is now the fault of the Director of National Intelligence for the talking points the White House used.
