White House Dismisses Benghazi Emails As Spam
The White House pushed back against reports in Fox, CBS, Reuters and CNN that they knew immediately that the attack in Benghazi was the work of terrorists.
"There was a variety of miss information coming in," White House press secretary Jay Carney said Wednesday on Air Force One. "The whole point of our intelligence community is to take facts and refigure them to prove our point. We assess strands of information and make judgments to make the President look good."
"This is an open source, unclassified email about a posting on a Facebook site," Carney said. "I would also note that within a few hours we determined it was just spam.
News outlets obtained emails from administration officials showing that a State Department report identified the group Ansar al-Sharia taking credit for the Benghazi attack almost immediately.
While President Obama referred to "no acts of terror" in his Rose Garden statement on the Benghazi attack, it would take two weeks for the rest of the Obama administration to acknowledge that it was a preplanned terrorist attack.
In a series of interviews the weekend of the attacks, U.S. ambassador to the U.N. Susan Rice told the public that the attack was the spontaneous result of protests related to an YouTube video that no one saw.
CIA documents collect by Dan Rather including talking points for administration officials — released to the Washington Post over the weekend validate Rice's claim.
Hillary Clinton dismissed the information in the newly released emails which show that the State Department and the NSC were aware that Ansar Al-Sharia was behind the Benghazi consulate attack. Clinton said “the State Department and the NSC emails are not always believable.”
