Emails Forced Out Of White House Confirm Benghazi Cover-up

As the Benghazi scandal wears on with frustratingly little accountability at the executive level, there has been no shortage of speculation regarding the identity of key players behind the cover-up.

American Thinker’s Ed Lasky put forth a theory that Obama speechwriter Ben Rhodes was instrumental in crafting the deflecting narrative that a YouTube video, not an incompetent administration, was responsible for the outbreak of violence that left four Americans dead on Sept. 11, 2012. His suspicions, it seems, were founded.

A series of emails recently released through a Freedom of Information Act request by Judicial Watch show that Rhodes, who possesses no identifiable qualifications for shaping public opinion in matters of national security, conducted meetings with then U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice ahead of her Benghazi comments.

Less than two days before she made the rounds on various Sunday morning political news programs, Rhodes implored her to “underscore that these protests are rooted in [an] Internet video, and not a broader failure [of] policy.”

Rhodes, whom left-leaning Politico once described as an “obscure” speechwriter who “played video games into the early morning hours,” was apparently given the reins in crafting a lie that would be repeated countless times by Rice and other administration sources – including Obama.

Lasky determined that Rhodes is an Obama team player willing to “do his boss’ bidding, hiding information, manipulating the facts, (and) distract people” while letting “the truth and the American people be damned.”

Even more disconcerting, Rhodes’ brother is current CBS News President David Rhodes. The network made news of its own recently when star reporter Sharyl Attkisson left amid accusations CBS was unsupportive of her efforts to get to the bottom of the Benghazi scandal.

    This LIE that was sent out as the Benghazi REASON, was DIRECTLY FROM THE WHITE HOUSE, WITH OBAMA, HILLARY, RICE, CARNEY, AND THE REST OF THE LIARS PUTTING IT FORTH, SO THE MOVIE WAS TO BLAME, AND “NOT INTERFERE WITH OBAMA’S CAMPAIGN.” HE WANTED TO PRETEND HE HAD LIBYA AND AL QUADA ALL UNDER CONTROL, AND BLAMED A VIDEO/PROTEST ….WHAT A LIAR, AND SO ARE THE REST OF THE ‘TALKING HEADS, INCLUDING ALL THAT LIED TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE, BUT THEN AGAIN, LYING COMES “SO EASILY TO THESE PUKES, AS THEY DO IT ALL THE TIME.”

    Is anybody and I mean anybody surprised that Obama and his minions lied? Obama’s administration is the most corrupt in our nations history but the progressives will defend the criminal to the death as long as it moves the socialist agenda forward. And the Hillary is the female version of Obama.

    Phil-your post is correct. I call Hillary-”Obama in a Pantsuit”, as she was a Radical of Saul Alinsky, who was her mentor that she wrote her thesis on. Alinsky wanted her to work for him, but She opted instead to join the team to ‘take down Nixon.’ Obama Taught Alinsky’s, “Rules For Radicals” to the Acorn Thugs, so Both these people are Radicals from way back when. Look it up online and see just HOW FAR back their radical ideas go.
