And still, my mind boggles at trying to imagine the head-exploding outrage that would have happened had he actually discussed real operational intelligence in a press conference while keeping it secret was still valuable.

Also... when the current Republican leadership start showing some outrage for well-documented outright lies that were told intentionally and led directly to the deaths of 4500 Americans and god knows how many others, THEN they'll have a little credibility; until then they really ought to STFU and reflect on where they went so far off the rails.

Well, Republicans already leaked the location of the annex while on broadcast television

If this really were a crime, they'd be nationalizing FOX news and jailing most of its current management.

To use a party analogy:

S. Rice lied about the the desert she brought being homemade (because she was told it was)

C. Rice lied about whether not the punch was poisoned

Well, there you have it. Obama has enough dirt on the entire intelligence community that they'll cover his ass no matter what.

/This is what Republicans actually believe

Fox News was told by one source that Clapper, in a classified session on Thursday, was "unequivocal, and without hesitation insisted the changes were made outside the Intelligence community. He didn't know who but was emphatic he would find out."

who told clapper to lie?
 
2012-11-21 10:21:07 AM  
So two months of explaining has them finally getting some of the facts right. But nothing will stop them from trying to make it into a scandal.

Protecting American spies? Republicans must be flummoxed.

More importantly, who leaked the proceedings of a classified meeting?
 
2012-11-21 10:21:56 AM  
"...the talking points were amended to protect classified sources of information..."

What part of this don't the repubs understand? Don't they realize that by pursuing this faux scandal they are aiding and abetting the enemy? Just how much treasonous behavior are we obliged to accept from the repubs before they can be taken to task? At this point, "party before country" is putting it mildly.

And since when does one unnamed source past scrutiny to the point that you can publish it as fact? Usually if you have one anonymous source you don't publish it, you use it as an angle to find corroborating evidence.

They really are going to follow Issa's lead and out American intelligence operatives in their quest to down Obama. They have turned treasonous.

It might need some work. After all, Condi was actually in charge of the punch. Susan didn't even have to bring dessert.

I like openness and transparency, but when dealing with international security issues, it seems pretty obvious that you would hold some details back if the release of those details could compromise an ongoing search. It's like this is the first time anyone implied that the government might hide something if it's part of CIA operations abroad.

Wow. You farktards will believe *anything* the intelligence folks say if it's good for your Obamessiah. If it isn't, then they're evil.

It's farking obvious what happened. They didn't need "spies" to tell them it was a coordinated assault. They farking could see it on the drone feed. There are no spies to protect.

What you have here is the "modified limited hangout". They are making up lies to cover for their initial lie that it was a video that triggered the assault. IT WAS NOT. It was an Al Quada attack, it was obvious to everyone involved, but it was embarrassing to the Obamessiah to have a terrorist attack just before the election. And it reveals how they left our embassey guys out hanging in the breeze. For political expediency.

But remember it was the VIDEO that caused it, that is the story.

The fact that an adminstration mouth piece got on TV and lent the story credibility in no way had any impact at all.

Yeah, because having a consulate overrun and an ambassador murdered by a disorganized mob of random twats is much less embarrassing.

With insight like that, you should be at Langley.
