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.

    From the Benghazi January Report: Page 63: “It is important to reinstate that the references to "al-Qa'ida" and "Ansar al-Sharia” included in earlier drafts of the talking points were removed “NOT BY THE WHITE HOUSE OR FBI as was INCORRECTLY alleged by members of Congress and the Press”, but were removed by CIA staff”. Then it was Morell, finally it is Rhodes (the White House Deputy National Security Adviser)!!! Also don’t forget about Obama’s brother received an astounding $8 billion dollar bribe to guarantee that the Sinai Peninsula, be turned over to the muslim brotherhood sister group hamas, to put Israel in an indefensible position. The $8 billion was shared with Ansar al-Sharia, the group that attacked our consulate and CIA Annex. Obama funded the terrorists that killed 4 Americans. This is why everybody is trying to protect obama on Benghazi. The imprisoned film director should sue Rhodes for everything he has! Can the director at least get out of jail after serving a 20 month illegal sentence!
