CIA officer confirmed no protests before misleading Benghazi account given

Before the Obama administration gave an inaccurate narrative on national television that the Benghazi attacks grew from an anti-American protest, the CIA’s station chief in Libya pointedly told his superiors in Washington that no such demonstration occurred, documents and interviews with current and former intelligence officials show.
The attack was “not an escalation of protests,” the station chief wrote to then-Deputy CIA Director Michael J. Morell in an email dated Sept. 15, 2012 — a full day before the White House sent Susan E. Rice to several Sunday talk shows to disseminate talking points claiming that the Benghazi attack began as a protest over an anti-Islam video.

Why don't we use geothermal energy?

In most places, just a mile beneath the crust, the earth is several million degrees.

Team Sabatage
Most places?

Try 18 to 22 miles down before we get to the heat you mentioned, in most places.
In those places it is only a mile down it is a good alternative.

I already know more than you ever will on all subjects.

    “The chief of station in Tripoli who was 600 or 700 miles away from the attacks wouldn’t necessarily have the only view of what actually went on in Benghazi,” that former official said.

    Benghazi makes a big difference. It exposes the difference between thinking persons and media-led hysterical goons.

    Everyone now knows the protest story is just a made up lie to CYA for the complete incompetence that resulted in the unnecessary deaths.

    Seriously, **** happened? Did the Obama appointee bend to pressure and make up some wild fantasy story? I want to know more about the spontaneous fire fight that resulted in the murder of our ambassador. How about the grunts, the ex-seals that died doing what was right?

    Funny how you managed to leave this part out . . .

    "That the talking points used by Mrs. Rice, who was then U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, were written by a CIA that ignored the assessment by its own station chief inside Libya, has emerged as one of the major bones of contention in the more than two years of political fireworks and congressional investigations into the Benghazi attack."

    So Rice used talking point given to her by the CIA, and somehow she is to blame and is purported as a liar because she read bad info? Seems to remind me a bit of Colin Powell on the WMD's speech from the CIA as well . . .
