Some of the emails related to the attack in Benghazi that resulted in the death of Americans have been released.
This whole situation is very concerning.
As suspected, the emails support the theories that there was a major coverup by the State Department and others.
Obama and Rice, as well as Hillary Clinton, knew from the beginning that the attacks were a planned terrorist attack.
These emails show how they changed the story, and watered things down.
On page 37:
"...and the penultimate point could be abused by Members to beat the State Department for not paying attention to Agency warnings so why do we want
to feed that either? Concerned...."
So right here, they say the "agency" warned them.
Then see page 94 - they come right out and say they changed the report so that it would not show the CIA warned them.
The above is enough - they intentionally covered up the truth so that they would not be held responsible for ignoring warnings, and for not sending
more security in advance, or having a defense ready to send during the attack.
And they all saw this going back and forth through the emails:
"I've been very careful not to say we issued a warning."
On page 67 they entirely changed the wording to say they did not have any intelligence that the attack was planned. And this was after they said over
and over that they had warnings, but were trying to be careful not to say that.
In this email, September 15, there is no mention of a video, but they say there are indications it was alQaida.
Yet, they quickly change it to say the attack was spontaneous from a video.
This whole thing shows how much they changed the report from the first versions.
The final version is nothing like the first version.
They removed mention of terrorists, and alQaida, and warnings.
And that White House spokesman soooo obviously lied when he said they just changed the word "Consulate".
See page 57. "The State Department had major reservations with much or most of the document. We revised the document with their concerns in
Then on page 63 they chopped out entire paragraphs.
Obama, Rice, and Clinton lied.
They lied to the American people and to Congress.
They repeatedly said they had no idea that it was a planned terrorist attack.
The emails show they knew right from the beginning, and intentionally covered it up.
It will be interesting to see how this ends.
