Fox Confirms Stunning WH Exchange On Benghazi & The Terror Question

From last night......Fox Confirms Stunning WH Exchange On Benghazi & The Terror Question - The Kelly File

Discrepancies Found Between Benghazi Emails White House Gave To Congress And Those Court Ordered Released To Judicial Watch…

Documents reviewed by Fox News show there are differences between Benghazi emails released through the federal courts to the conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch and emails released to the House oversight committee as part of its investigation into the attacks.

The discrepancies are fueling allegations the administration is holding back documents to Congress.

“The key question is whether Congress now has all the documents,” Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, a member of the oversight committee, said. As for differences between the two sets of documents, Chaffetz alleged: “They are playing games. The classification and redactions are different. Why should Judicial Watch get more than Congress after issuing a subpoena?”

The emails published by Judicial Watch last week, which showed additional White House involvement in shaping the public explanation of what happened, helped trigger the announcement Friday by House Speaker John Boehner of a select committee to investigate.

Two of the emails, from Sept. 14, 2012, appear to be part of the deliberations in advance of then-U.N. ambassador Susan Rice’s Sunday show appearances were she linked an anti-Islam video to the Benghazi attacks. The emails released to Judicial Watch include the names of those who participated in the email chain.

The same emails provided to the House committee do not include names.

While the text and subject line are redacted in full for both Judicial Watch and Capitol Hill, there are unexplained differences in the classification. The emails, originally marked “unclassified,” were retroactively classified in February by the Department of State.

The email released to Judicial Watch is now marked “SECRET,” and the same email released to the Oversight Committee is marked “Confidential.” Both are marked to “DECLASSIFY” on Sept. 13, 2037 — 25 years after the terrorist attack which killed four Americans.

Fox News also reviewed an email from Sept. 12, 2012 from Rice to members of the U.S. team at the United Nations where Rice was U.S. ambassador at the time. This unclassified email, whose subject line and text are also redacted in full, was retroactively classified on April 16, 2014, one day before it was released. While the contents and subject line were redacted in both versions, the email released as a result of the federal lawsuit to Judicial Watch does include the names, while the other does not.

Wild Thing's comment...........

The WH and Obama acting more and more guilty in how his administration handled this.

If there is no difference, if Benghazi really didn’t matter, then why did the president and the Secretary of State lie about it for weeks afterwards? Why was it so important to lie about it? Just this week, Jay Carney lied about it again!!

20 months later and we still do not have answers to basic questions. For instance, where was the president that evening while his ambassador was being killed? We now know he was not in the situation room at any time during the evening. Where was this absentee president? What was he doing that was more important than Benghazi? We still do not know…we can only guess…

Some articles for those who need some background:

Cairo Egypt protests planned before anti-Muslim video was ever released

Documents Show Obama Administration Was Warned of Benghazi Attack Days Before 9-11 Assault

The Military Knew Immediately That The Benghazi Attack Was A Terrorist Attack And Not A “Protest Gone Awry”

Benghazi Emails Show White House Effort to Protect Obama During Election [Why is Benghazi important? They did not want obama to take the blame and wanted his re-election...this action may have changed the result of a presidential election]

You Just Cannot Make This Stuff Up: Jay Carney: New Emails Not About Benghazi …Even Though They’re Entitled ‘Benghazi’ [Four people dead. Cover up still in progress...]

New Benghazi Documents Reveal Obama White House Hid Truth From Congress [Obstruction Of Justice? Evidence Of Systemic, Intentional Effort To Hide The Truth From Congress...]

Many liberals said at the time, “I’m sure the Obama administration will look into it.” Yeah, that misplaced confidence is not looking so good right now, is it?

I think we know where the president was while our ambassador was being killed. He was preparing for something a whole lot more important than an American consulate being attacked. He was preparing for a fund raiser in Las Vegas. Fundraising and campaigning is what he does best.

I keep thinking that eventually the MSM will take Benghazi and begin to run with it. They have haltingly mentioned it a few times, but they are still geared to covering obama's and Hillary's asses.

These latest emails may finally open the door to 100% scrutiny. I remember fondly when the MSM finally turned on their wonder boy Jimmy Carter in 1979 and once the feeding frenzy started they could not stop. Maybe? Again?

Vlad 'Impaler' Putin watched the gutless ObaMao military and political elites FAIL TO ACT & RETALIATE while two former US Navy Seals - Woods & Doherty - fought like roaring lions for 6 hours - while saving 34 lives before dying from mortar fire!
Now we have Russian fighters off California and Russian submarines (stealth capacity) off our shores!
