Is This The Reasion Why The White House Will Not Release The Benghazi Emails?

Acting U.S. Assistant Secretary of State for Near Eastern Affairs Elizabeth Jones told Libya's president one day after the Benghazi attack that Islamic terrorists had killed the U.S. Ambassador and reduced the compound to a burnt-out shell

Secret Email Reveals Top Official Told Libya's U.S. Abmassador That Terrorists Were Behind Benghazi Attack - Four Days BEFORE U.S. Ambassador To UN Said It Was A Spontaneous Attack -- Daily Mail

Sept. 11: Terrorists attack the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya
Sept. 12: State Dept. Assistant Secretary for Near Eastern Affairs tells Libya's President that Ansar al-Sharia was responsible
Sept. 13: CIA writes candid talking points for members of Congress
Sept. 15: White House deputies edit the talking points, removing all references to Islamic terrorism
Sept. 16: UN Ambassador Susan Rice, in five television interviews, blames the attack on a spontaneous mob angered by an anti-Islam YouTube video

A top State Department appointee told Libya's ambassador to the United States one day after the military-style assault on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi that the terror group Ansar al-Shariah was responsible.

But four days later, the U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations said on television that it was the product of a spontaneous protest.

During a fiery and emotional congressional hearing on the 2012 attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Rep. Trey Gowdy read aloud from an email dated Sept. 12, 2012 to senior State Department officers, from Elizabeth Jones, the acting Secretary of State for Near Eastern Affairs.

My Comment: I am not an American, but one thing that I do know about American culture is that if told the truth, the American people are very forgiving (witness Mark Sanford). But if lied to and continued to be lied to .... prepare for hell.

If yesterday's testimonies and the above emails as reported by the Daily Mail are accurate .... the blow-back on the administration, media, and their supporters is going to be severe. And while I am not surprised to be seeing (today) the administration, many in the media, and their supporters "circle the wagons" on this story .... I also know that there are many who feel a need to know the truth, and they will find it.

My prediction .... it will be the British press, CBS reporter Sheryl Atkinson, FOX News, Eli Lake from the Daily Beast, and a few others in the blogosphere .... they will be the go to place for future news and revelations on this story .... and they are the ones who will disclose (via through more whistle blowers, leaks, and hard news research) what the administration has been trying it's best to not reveal these past 7 months.

On a personal note .... this should never never have been the issue that it is today. It should have been buried and done with a month or two after last year's presidential election .... information and details disclosed .... explanations and apologies made ... officials held accountable and (maybe) punished. Story ended. But nope .... this is a story that will only now grow and get more uncomfortable for the administration and their supporters.
