A GOP staffer lied to Jonathan Karl (ABC) about the contents of an e-mail from Deputy National Security Advisor Ben Rhodes.  Karl reported that the e-mail stated:
“We must make sure that the talking points reflect all agency equities, including those of the State Department, and we don’t want to undermine the FBI investigation.”
IN FACT, the e-mail did NOT state that:
“We need to resolve this in a way that respects all the relevant equities, particularly the investigation.”
The GOP staffer was deliberately trying to make it seem that there was a cover-up.

This story has now been reported by TPM, CBS News, and has made it to Memeorandum.

Is context ignored because of ethnic chauvinism-lack of it---or "everyone who matters is at least a soft imperialist?"

That fits in nicely with my post about conservative incompetence.

Rumsfeld was interviewed on
MTP today, in a very respectable manner, as if he deserved it.
Check out the MTP transcript or show.

Then review this, featuring the great Ray McGovern.

Then thank Obama for lulling the left to sleep and not going after the war criminal liars in such manner as the MTP interview could never have been conducted thus assisting in the cleansing of the Iraq War and paving the way for more imperial war.
