Ben Rhodes Benghazi Memo

 The White House was forced to cough up another Benghazi memo this week because of a FOIA request by Judicial Watch.  The memo written by Ben Rhodes urged staffers to emphasize the line that the 9/11/2012 Benghazi attack was caused by an anti-Muslim movie and not a failure of policy. The attack killed a US ambassador and 3 others. At the time the president was bragging that he had decimated al Qaeda.  The White House feared news of a planned terror attack would tarnish the president’s  campaign theme.  Rhodes and others prepped Susan Rice for 5 Sunday talk shows with the message that a demonstration against the video got out of hand, causing the violence in the Benghazi compound.

This Catherine Herridge report shows General Robert Lovell testifying that there were no ant-video demonstrations preceding the Benghazi attack.

Charles Krauthammer says the release of the Rhodes e-mail is up there with the discovery of the Nixon tapes.

Last night Bret Baier asked National Security Council spokesman Tommy Vietor if he changed Susan Rice’s talking points from terror “attack” to “demonstrations” protesting a video. Spokesman Vietor replied, “Dude, this was like two years ago.”
