Well, well. Aunt Bitties second favorite news source got it wrong!!<quoted text>
The man is simply too far in over his head. Always has been.
It's like being in high school and electing a student body president - the coolest guy in the school who thought someone else was supposed to do the work.
Seriously. This president is more like an "absentee" president. He hears breaking news for the first time along with the rest of us. How very odd.
CNN has obtained an email sent by a top aide of President Barack Obama, in which the aide discusses the Obama administration reaction to the attack on the U.S. posts in Benghazi, Libya. The actual email differs from how sources characterized it to two different media organizations.
The actual email from then-Deputy National Security Adviser for Strategic Communications Ben Rhodes appears to show that whomever leaked it did so in a way that made it appear that the White House primarily concerned with the State Department's desire to remove references and warnings about specific terrorist groups so as to not bring criticism to the department.
So, let me get this straight. Someone -- we don't know who -- leaked misleading information to ABC and the Weekly Standard, they ran it, other news organizations embraced it, we've had several days of "scandal" based on it, and the information wasn't true?
