The Endangered MSM Plays Catch-Up on Benghazi While Acting as If It’s New News

DEVELOPING: The U.S. military has been put on alert because the security situation has deteriorated in Tripoli, and U.S. and other nations are pulling their government personnel in response.
One more developing mention, Stephen Hayes is tweeting that more Benghazi whistleblowers are on-deck, including CIA officials. (popcorn please)

The most transparent administration in U.S. history held an off-the-record Benghazi briefing -- er -- "deep background" with the press. Well, it is Friday, and time for an administration docu-drop when everybody's looking forward to starting the weekend. By the way, The Daily Caller has proof the White House press corps are being bought-off by the administration with donuts. I guess controlling the message is slipping through the administration's fingers. Uh-huh...

Here is a brief summary about how the *yawning* MSM has covered the Benghazi hearing.

This from ABC today, which they are laughingly calling an "Exclusive" report: "Exclusive: Benghazi Talking Points Underwent 12 Revisions, Scrubbed of Terror Reference"

Never mind most of us have known this information for months since the attacks, but have been ignored, or called nasty names. I think it's safe to say ABC has finally read the Stephen Hayes piece from a few days ago...

I am told MSNBC has echoed ABC's report, which takes from The Weekly Standard. And Chris Matthews and Company try so darned hard over there. However, many Obamabots are in seething denial.

Meanwhile the White House Press Secretary still driving that whole administration lie, and then some.

Heh!

For months Glenn Beck has been speculating what was going on in Benghazi at the time of the attack was weapons-running from Libya through Turkey to the rebels in Syria trying to overthrow Bashar al-Assad. I suspect as much myself, though we do not (yet) have evidence of this being the case. But I will remind you that the two former Navy SEALS, Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods, who died fighting off the terrorists so that the 30 embassy workers could escape alive were originally hired by the State Department and were in Benghazi to trackdown weapons that the U.S. and other NATO countries provided to the Libyan rebels, but were not being turned in, as instructed to, after the Libyan regime fell. Doherty and Woods were NOT part of Amb. Stevens's security detail. I said before, this was quite possibly/probably another Obama administration "Fast and Furious" out of Libya. Apparently Geraldo's "sources" now confirming our suspicions.

And I believe we seriously must re-visit that whole David Petreaus 'sex scandal' and exit from the head of the CIA considering he was questioning the altering of the administration's talking points after the attack in Benghazi at the time. As a matter of fact, I, for one, insist Petreaus be called to the Congressional hearings on this. After all, it is not impossible/improbably that somebody serving at the administrations' pleasure would suffer retaliation for stepping off the reservation ... Would they, Gregory Hicks? Yet, it is the administration's "underlings" that always seem to become more bumps in the road under the Obama Bus ... eh, Victoria Nuland? But then, as Amb. Chris Stevens and three other loyal government servents discovered on September 11, 2012, everybody is expendable to Obama. Well, the evil GOP made the administration be lying liars in all of this, so Obama has that going for him ... or something.

Washington Times: "The moment of responsibility for Hillary Clinton: Her fatal mistakes mirror the disaster at Mogadishu"

The GOP may have seriously dropped the ball when Hillary Clinton came before Congress and they did not have her sworn in before giving testimony. They had better have had a good reason.

NOTE: CBS investigative journalist Sharyl Attkisson will be on C-SPAN and CBS's own "Face The Nation" to discuss Benghazi.

Michelle Malkin: "Operation Smear Benghazi Whistleblowers"

"Administration’s ‘Dripping Condescension’ On Benghazi ‘Makes Me Want To Throw Up’"

Breitbart: "BBC Apologizes for Benghazi Coverage: Hillary In Trouble, 'Heads Will Roll'"

Oh, sure, Paul: "Top Hillary Clinton Ally Paul Begala: Republican Critics Of Benghazi Cover Up Close To Wearing A “Tin Foil Hat”…"
