White House email shows the administration knew the Benghazi “talking points” were BS. The email and 40 other documents were made public by Judicial Watch, which obtained them via an FOIA lawsuit. The documents bring the events surrounding Benghazi into much sharper focus. There was clearly a set of intelligence available in the immediate aftermath of 9/11/12 indicating that the compound had been attacked (four Americans died), and that there had been no “demonstration” preceding the attack. Well after that time (but before Susan Rice spoke to Meet The Press the following Sunday), the White House communications team was still in spin mode, as the email makes clear. Obama’s election campaign was too important to allow anyone to think there had been a “policy failure.”
