“At this point in time it does not appear that there was an intelligence failure.” So says Susan Phalen, spokeswoman for the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence Chairman Rep. Mike Rogers (R., Mich.). This is bad news for the Obama administration. Why? Their story must be either
A. A video made them do it.
B. There was an intelligence failure. It was their fault, no blame lies with the White House.
I mentioned last week on the show that the Benghazi attack had the potential to become a fast-moving and dangerous scandal for Obama. Congressional hearings on the attack are scheduled for Oct. 10. Susan Rice has already been shoved under the bus to protect Obama’s reelection narrative. It’s doubtful our spy agencies will volunteer to be become more White House road kill. Think about it: The country finds out the White house ignored actionable intelligence and 4 people were subsequently murdered. This is revealed in the days leading up to a foreign policy debate with Romney.
The Benghazi story is worth watching closely.
