The conservative Republican pundit slams the liberal U.N. ambassador's latest press statement, after her meeting with Republican Senate leaders: "Rice wishes she had 'perfect information just days after the attack.' What the administration did have at the time she went on the talk-show circuit was information that (a) the attack was a terrorist act, (b) it had links to al-Qaeda, (c) it was not spontaneous, (d) it was not an outgrowth of a mob protest, and (e) it was not caused by a video. On September 16, Rice failed to mention a or b, and misled the American people on c, d, and e."
He continues his commentary: "Rice asserts the intelligence assessment 'evolved.' But General Petraeus testified on November 16 that the intelligence community knew immediately that Benghazi was a terrorist attack. The only evolution, therefore, was from the fact that the attack was al-Qaeda-related terrorism to Rice’s fiction that it was a spontaneous protest caused by a video."
More: "The only salient 'updates' the administration provided conveniently occurred after the election, and those updates were the same as the original intelligence assessments. They were, however, fundamentally different from the false narrative promoted by the administration for weeks."
