Today, after former CIA Director General Petraeus very slowly explained to confused, befuddled Republicans what everyone in the world already knew, they saw the light. Yes, I called the fail this morning but who knew it would be so sudden and decisive.
It turns out that the intelligence report sent to Congress that Ambassador Rice also based her talking points on was just that. The report was approved by the CIA. Later they changed their assessment.
OH MY GOD!
Even Rep. Peter King (R-NY) sees the light now, leaving just dodgy John McCain and the gotta-impress-his-base for his upcoming election Lindsey Graham hysterically clutching tinfoil.
KING: They were not involved — it was done, the process was completed and they said, “Ok go with those talking points.” Again it’s interagency — I got the impression that 7, 8, 9 different agencies.
Q: Did he give you the impression that he (Petraeus) was upset it was taken out?
Q: You said the CIA said “OK” to the revised report -
KING: No, well, they said in that, after it goes through the process, they OK’d it to go. Yeah, they said “Okay for it to go.”
