ODNI was the CIA’s Benghazigate editor

From CBS:

…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.

While CBS then goes way out of its way to tell us neither the White House nor the State Department made the changes, the bigger point is this: the DNI is a part of the Obama Administration and the DNI has a boss. It’s the President.

Furthermore, if ODNI hadn’t made the changes, would someone else—say the “White House” or the State Department—have still directed the very same changes in order to ensure Susan Rice could thus misrepresent the Administration’s pre—election narrative on the Sunday talk shows? After all, on short-turn coordination, changes tend to be made in parallel rather than in serial.

More CBS:

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.

So here’s the story and the Administration is sticking to it: the al Qaeda links were too tenuous but the Mohammed YouTube video/spontaneous protest story wasn’t?

Barry, your scandal-dog excuses still don’t hunt.

Bigger than Watergate.

About Professor Mockumental

I enjoy almost all forms of parody, buffoonery, and general high-jinks. Satire has shown itself to be an essential societal need; I therefore humbly offer my services in such a manner. I enjoy mocking the usual suspects at the New York Times (Charles Blows, Moron Dowd, and the earth is flat guy) and Washington Post (Dana Milkbag, E.D. Dijon, and David Ignoramus). There are many others as well, but sadly, there are always too many targets and too little time.
