Let's review some of the facts. First, none of us were in the room with Petraeus when he testified. Out of that you had republicans saying he knew it was a terrorist attack, and you have democrats coming out and saying there were conflicting reports. Then Petraeus says that his talking points said it was a terrorist attack. But then those talking points go and get further reviewed by about 10 other intelligence agencies, and then they are given to the white house and then the white house creates unclassified talking points from them.
This is where it gets really "terrible" though. The white house has susan rice go on the news with these unclassified talking points and she shares them. That's it.
No one takes us into a war over these, or orders a covert mission, or anything else. The big terrible thing that susan rice did was read unclassified talking points that she had no reason to suspect were not correct on the news. She didn't ask for the UN to destroy Egypt, she didn't ask for the US to go to war, and she damn sure didn't do anything that put any other Americans in harms way.
This whole thing is ridiculous. The outrage is that for approximately five days, the White House didn't accurately share all of their intelligence with the American people. Holy ****! They must be the first administration to ever do that!
Its not like Susan Rice went to the UN with this bad information and said we needed a whole bunch of countries to attack another country. And then when the UN basically said to her that they didn't think the intelligence was strong enough, its not like Obama went ahead and went to war with Egypt where thousands of Americans were put in harms way. No, its nothing like that.
