I will leave people to read the emails and come to their own conclusions
Jay Carney fumbles on bombshell email showing how the White House steered Benghazi terror-attack narrative toward an anti-Islam video
Ben Rhodes, the president’s deputy national security adviser, wrote three days after the terror attack about coaching then-UN Ambassador Susan Rice for upcoming TV appearances
Rice falsely told five different Sunday talk-show audiences that the devastation in Benghazi was the result of anti-America protests that spiraled out of control
Demonstrations in other Middle East cities that week were reportedly sparked by a crude anti-Islam video, which Rice, Obama and Hillary Clinton all blamed for Benghazi
Rhodes’ email said that a prep session with Rice would prepare her ‘to underscore that these protests are rooted in an Internet video, and not a broader failure of policy’
Jay Carney insisted that Rhodes was writing generally about protests in the Muslim world, and that his email ‘was explicitly not about Benghazi’
But the State Department included the same document in a batch of materials it released to a congressional committee on April 17, writing that it was ‘responsive’ to its subpoena for Benghazi-related files
Newly released emails on the Benghazi terror attack suggest a senior White House aide played a central role in preparing former U.N. ambassador Susan Rice for her controversial Sunday show appearances — where she wrongly blamed protests over an Internet video.
More than 100 pages of documents were released to the conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch as part of a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit. Among them was a Sept. 14, 2012, email from Ben Rhodes, an assistant to the president and deputy national security adviser for strategic communications.
The Rhodes email, with the subject line: “RE: PREP Call with Susan: Saturday at 4:00 pm ET,” was sent to a dozen members of the administration’s inner circle, including key members of the White House communications team such as Press Secretary Jay Carney. In the email, Rhodes specifically draws attention to the anti-Islam Internet video, without distinguishing whether the Benghazi attack was different from protests elsewhere.
The email lists the following two goals, among others: “To underscore that these protests are rooted in an Internet video, and not a broader failure of policy.” “To reinforce the President and Administration’s strength and steadiness in dealing with difficult challenges.” The email goes on to state that the U.S. government rejected the message of the Internet video. “We find it disgusting and reprehensible. But there is absolutely no justification at all for responding to this movie with violence,” the email stated.
