Attkisson: Benghazi Narrative Shows Admin Officials ‘Were All Reading From the Same Page’
A newly released email obtained by Judicial Watch suggests that the White House was involved in prepping Susan Rice for the media following the Benghazi attack.
An email from Ben Rhodes was sent to a dozen members of the Obama administration’s inner circle, including Jay Carney. The subject line read, “Re: PREP Call with Susan: Saturday at 3:00 pm ET,” and the email lists the following two goals:
"To underscore that these protests are rooted in an Internet video, and not a broader failure of policy."
"To reinforce the President and Administration's strength and steadiness in dealing with difficult challenges."
Sharyl Attkisson and Bret Baier were on “Hannity” to discuss this new information.
Baier said that the Judicial Watch’s FOIA request was for Benghazi documents and emails, nothing else, and yet Carney today tried to tell the media that the email was not related to Benghazi. Baier pointed out that everyone on the ground said the incident in Benghazi was an attack, not a protest.
Attkisson said that the narrative clearly shows that administration officials “were all reading from the same page.”
“It was certainly the clear message […] as if there had been some sort of meeting and discussion and decision that said this will be the narrative,” she said.
