“Let’s not talk about Susan Rice. let’s take the president’s own demand that we not pick on the little lady and we pick on him. all right. let’s accept the challenge. that, and he said, after all, she was just my spokesman even though she knew nothing about this. all right, what he’s asking us to say the president of the united states using a spokesman who knew nothing about the issue went on five television shows and gave one version of a story where the classified version clearly said this was a terror attack, and yet, the version that was heard on every network was, this was a riot that had gone out of control, this was nothing else and there was no evidence of anything else. that’s pretty unequivocal. that means we have to lay at the feet of the president, willing to accept that challenge.
Clearly if petraeus is saying today, as he did, that there was al-qaeda, and a terrorist involvement in his report, at the cia level, and somehow it got altered, distorted or made deceptive by the time it reached the white house, and the white house received the classified information, knows it was a terror attack and puts out a story it wasn’t, that’s very strong evidence of deliberate deception at the highest level and yes, let’s put it at the level of the president.” (Fox News, Posted 17 Nov 12)
