Reports detail shift in administration's Benghazi spin

by The Oklahoman Editorial Board Published: May 13, 2013

Early versions of the talking points “prominently noted that extremists with ties to al-Qaida” were involved. The “scrubbed” version left this out. U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice hit the Sunday talk show circuit to push the video blame game. In congressional hearings last week, Greg Hicks, the deputy chief of missions in Libya, said that when he heard the story Rice was peddling, “I was stunned. My jaw dropped, and I was embarrassed.”

Hillary Clinton may have blown her chances of succeeding Barack Obama with her unforgettable, hostile question of what difference does it make now how the story was told.

The White House explanation for Benghazi was a shell game. People died. The administration lied.
