Just caught this in Doug Powers’s piece on White House Press Secretary Jay Carney’s Friday press conference:
Last November, Deputy National Security Adviser Ben Rhodes told this to reporters in regards to the Benghazi talking points: “The only edit that was made by the White House and also by the State Department was to change the word ‘consulate’ to the word ‘diplomatic facility,’ since the facility in Benghazi was not formally a consulate.” Jay Carney said the same thing at the time.
Powers also reminds that “ABC News reported that the Benghazi talking points went through at least a dozen edits”.
Could it be that Mr. Rhodes wasn’t telling the truth? Or that the Deputy National Security Adviser just wasn’t misinformed?
