The GOP is desperate to control the narrative on this because the truth doesn't serve their purpose.

 

The truth....do you have that truth?

 

Where was the President during all of this?  Where was Hillary?  Who gave the stand down orders? What the the Ambassador doing over there after it was a damn near warzone and the Brits were already long gone?

 

Where do the guns factor into all of this?

It's more puzzling why all the GOP Benghazi screamers were not there

 

 

 

 

 

 

Must have been the fact that the emails were not what ABC presented them to be after being lied to.

 

But no.. go ahead. That Benghazi  horse is dead. On to the next fake scandal

It has long been part of the Washington game for officials to discredit a news story by playing up errors in a relatively small part of it. Pfeiffer gives the impression that GOP operatives deliberately tried to “smear the president” with false, doctored e-mails.

But the reporters involved have indicated they were told by their sources that these were summaries, taken from notes of e-mails that could not be kept. The fact that slightly different versions of the e-mails were reported by different journalists suggests there were different note-takers as well.

Indeed, Republicans would have been foolish to seriously doctor e-mails that the White House at any moment could have released (and eventually did). Clearly, of course, Republicans would put their own spin on what the e-mails meant, as they did in the House report. Given that the e-mails were almost certain to leak once they were sent to Capitol Hill, it’s a wonder the White House did not proactively release them earlier.

The burden of proof lies with the accuser. Despite Pfeiffer’s claim of political skullduggery, we see little evidence that much was at play here besides imprecise wordsmithing or editing errors by journalists

 

As I said earlier...if you have a problem with the emails...blame the administration.

I don't. Neither is America apparently. You have a good one now

 

The whole "outrage" started because of doctored emails narrated by GOP sources to ABC. Now that it's shown to have been false, what exactly is there left to do..

 

It's over

You can't doctor what you haven't been given in full...

 

Otherwise you could say everything was doctored.  Nothing was doctored.  What you ascertain from what you were given (opinion) is.  Pfeiffer got the pinochios Gazi. 

 

Oh...by the way...where the hell is any mention of your coveted youtube videos in any of the emails.

Where have you been living? They doctored an email that was released in full days later. Even the ABC reporter who was given that doctored email apologized for it

 

There is no arguing with you
