ABC News has offered an apology for the mess they stirred up last week by claiming to quote directly from emails they had not actually seen. Seems the (mis)quotes were provided to them by Republican members of Congress.

Speaking of quotes, next time include a citation.

While Karl's report implied that he was quoting actual emails between the State Department, the CIA, and the White House, they were actually summaries written by congressional staffers who were allowed to read and take notes on the emails earlier this year. Their notes were not transcripts. The summaries quoted deputy national security adviser Ben Rhodes saying "the talking points reflect all agency equities, including those of the State Department," when he actually wrote, "We need to resolve this in a way that respects all of the relevant equities, particularly the investigation."

Citation #2:

On May 10, Jonathan Karl wrote this.....

ABC News has obtained 12 different versions of the talking points that show they were extensively edited....

White House emails reviewed by ABC News suggest the edits were made with extensive input from the State Department.

At the time, ABC News had not "reviewed" "White House e-mails".....neither had ABC News "obtained" the numerous versions of Benghazi talking points. Instead, a still-unnamed Republican source gave Jonathan Karl this version of part of one of the e-mails....most likely over the phone......"We must make sure that the talking points reflect all agency equities, including those of the State Department, and we don't want to undermine the FBI investigation."

Problem is.....after the White House released the authentic e-mails....here is what that one sentence actually said.....

"We need to resolve this in a way that respects all of the relevant equities, particularly the investigation."

The nuance may be subtle, but the intention is clear. The Republican who "leaked" a phony version of that e-mail to ABC's Karl intended to inflict political damage on Hillary Clinton, making it appear as if specifically shielding the Hillary-led State Department from criticism was the intent of those putting the Benghazi e-mails together.

After the White House released 100 e-mails having to do with the construction of the Benghazi talking points....CNN's Jake Tapper ratted out Jon Karl for his exclusive fabrication.

Now, in typical Fox form....ABC's Karl has issued a non-apology apology. You can read the weasel-words of the non-apology here. Make no mistake.....what ABC did through Jonathan Karl was not journalism, it was GOP advocacy. The same work of GOP advocacy which the entire Fox News Network does 24/7. What Karl did was not an accident....not some mistake....but purposeful and with intent. The proof is seen in his non-apology. Even former Foxian and current CBS reporter Major Garrett called bullshite on ABC's exclusive.

"Which still entirely stands", so to quote Obama:

"There's no there there."

There are cover-ups going on, Reader. Sit back and see where it goes.

OK,che, let loose with one of your lame brain one-liners, isult included.

That statement has as much credibility as your "no nuclear weapons in WWII" assertion. None.

And in your opinion, what exactly is being covered up, and by whom?

Lay out the timeline by which the President might have saved any of the four dead.

ABC just got caught shilling for the Repubs. Not exactly proof that there is a "there" there.

I saw part of the Chris Wallace interview with the WH aide. Wallace pushed HARD for an answer on where Obama was during the attack and the guy never gave an answer. It's a simple question. Why no answer?

So, he tells the truth and even though he's a Democrat and Obama supporter, you belittle him now.
That's how you people roll.

Your un-named whistleblower claims three hours away--would that have saved any lives?

But, Leon Panetta and Michael Mullin both disagree. Is it your opinion that they are lying?
