Just Released: More than 100 pages of Benghazi e-mails (Update – Stephen Hayes and Jonathan Karl vindicated)

Just Released: More than 100 pages of Benghazi e-mails (Update – Stephen Hayes and Jonathan Karl vindicated)

This just in from CNN’s Jake Tapper:

The White House released more than 100 pages of e-mails on Wednesday in a bid to quell critics who say President Barack Obama and his aides played politics with national security following the deadly attack on the U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya.

The exchanges detailing discussions between top Obama administration officials from multiple agencies suggest the CIA took the lead in developing talking points to describe the attack last September 11 that killed Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans.

Updates (WAJ):  The prior reporting by Stephen Hayes and Jonathan Karl is vindicated, and the one-day claim that this whole controversy was based on “doctored” emails is revealed to be wrong.

(added 5-16-2013) Hayes has a post analyzing the new emails, Benghazi Emails Directly Contradict White House Claims.

White House Benghazi Emails Released May 15 2013

to the full extent allowed by law.


Jason Chavettz says there are over 100,000 documents. 100 released is a token gesture, no more.

page 14 is interesting.
can’t copy text in it (even with full acrobat) so took screenshot

and on page 29 they change their tune on the warnings about cairo.

page 34 they want to change to not KNOWING there were extremists becuase they may get questioned.
all I have time for today.

[…] have updates. Earlier there was a Benghazi news dump of emails. It’s kinda sad that Obama is using Benghazi to change the conversation from the only topic […]

Man – gotta be some big bad reason to go to these lengths.

Can someone prize out one of the 30 + personnel? The longer this goes on – they can’t hide behind the patriot.seal. Heroes = not. They have to be answering to someone.

Could they be torturing Ghaddafi perps prizing out the info on hidden tens of billions . Al Quaeda would be after that also.

    “Man – gotta be some big bad reason to go to these lengths. ”

    YES! We still don’t know the importance surrounding Benghazi, other than the Obama allowed the murder of 4 Americans in an American embassy.

    There was smoke in the WH the other day, are these 100 documents some that didn’t make it to the shredder?

      David – it is very necessary to be accurate in these things . 2 dead & several injured in a ‘consulate’ therefore under the SoS.

      2 dead in a unacknowledged compound. X injured. No one has claimed ownership of Donaghue & Woods.

      I note this because earlier on Hillary ‘s people said – dead & injured were security doing their jobs . ut we know that is not true for all .

These are all way late in the process, too late to reveal much: in all these examples they have already decided to blame it on a “spontaneous” mimicking of Cairo (and we know Cairo was not spontaneous).

dmacleo points out, on Page 14, from the General Counsel: ” “….conflicts with instructions from NSS/DOJ/FBI…..[ W]e are not to generate statements with assessments as to who did this etc, even internally, not to mention for public release.” But the obsfuscating paragraph about spontaneous eruption is already there.

Mention of teleconferences and F2F meetings perks up my ears: those are where the real cover up was done. Did anyone request release of the notes or transcripts from those meetings – the unmentioned ones that happened for 3 days before this email chain started, as well as the ones mentioned in email (pg 59, pg 58 etc).

    Huh. I am sitting in the morning sunshine on the porch with sunnies on & reading LI. Think I will go get some Pecan & maple cluster bomb cereal. Huh the man in the house has eaten it which is upsetting because he gets by on rabbit food muesli. He would never appreciate.pecans. They are for ME.

    Just walked back & see you Pecancorner & I got no pecans.:(

    I need energy to keep up with this.

The State Department’s greasy fingers are all over this. The talking points went from knowing it was a terrorist attack to believing it was a spontaneous demonstration. State was very worried that the truth would make it appear they’d dropped the ball.

And this isn’t in the mainstream media because…?

Didn’t every major news outlet send reporters to Alaska to stand in line and wait for boxes of Sarah Palin’s emails? But this? Nothing.

Even Wretched Madcow at MSNBC tonight seemed slightly shaken and mildly irritated about the AP Thingy. Unprecedented, Rachael!!

You simply CANNOT make these Obama Chorus members up,’Yo.

Emails yeah, but like no one uses the phone or talks in person?

Obama knows nothing. Everything happens to him while he’s busy having dinner, going to fund raisers, and playing golf.

    He needs to try the Al Gore “Iced Tea defense.” Remember that one? He didn’t hear about some iffy fundraising because he had to pee a lot, due to drinking a pitcher of iced tea.

    What a world.

Can anyone tell me why on page 59 of the e-mails, info is being fed to Eric Schmitt of the NYT who exposed Gen. Patreus’ affair in the Times article Nov.10,2012 and also fed to Dem. Rep.Ruppersberger heading the Itelligence Committee who also outed Patreus and demanded to know if he leaked secrets to Broadwell in an article in the Capitalgazette Nov. 14,2012.There are also so many google articles on these guys connected to talking points that I feel like putting a tinfoil hat on.But why are they getting info about these e-mails…this is very intimadating for Patreus if he’s put in this compromising position..look at the tlmeline and it’s even more compelling.

[…] the YouTube video on 9/11 but the earliest date on the just released (last night) 100+ pages of Benghazi emails is 9/14. Why isn’t the lame stream media asking for the public’s help in crowdsourcing […]

Hillary 2016.


How about she gets 2016 years.
