David Gregory of Meet the Press sat down Sunday morning with House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-CA) and Ambassador Thomas Pickering, who has led the state department’s review of Benghazi, to discuss the investigation into the aftermath of the September 11th, 2012 attack on the US consulate. An interesting turn of events occurred when Gregory revisited White House press secretary Jay Carney’s previous narrative regarding changes in the Benghazi talking points.
“The press secretary to the president, Jay Carney, said back in November, he talked about how changes were made, who made changes to these talking points prepared for Congress and for Ambassador Rice. This is what he said back on November 28th.”
“We know that’s not accurate. We know that in fact the State Department, Victoria Nuland, was involved in removing from the talking points previous warnings about security and references to a terrorist group, an extremist group, being involved in the attack, based on what was being reported on the ground and by intelligence. Is the administration guilty of playing politics with terrorism?”
Even David Gregory recognizes that Carney’s explanation on the Benghazi talking points revisions didn’t add up, and is asking that all important question: Is the administration guilty of playing politics with terrorism?
