Top GOP lawmaker pressures Clapper to explain altered talking points on Libya

by CATHERINE HERRIDGE November 21, 2012

 

The Republican chairman of the House Intelligence Committee is demanding an immediate explanation from the nation's top intelligence official, James Clapper, for what the chairman says were inconsistent statements to Congress and to the public on who was behind changes to the CIA talking points on the Libya consulate attack in September.

Critics say the Obama administration initially minimized the role of terrorism despite evidence of a coordinated attack on the consulate in Benghazi. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans were killed in the assault.

 

 

 

Testimony last week on Capitol Hill raised additional questions about the administration's changing story on the attack, putting new pressure on Clapper, the director of national intelligence.

Rep. Mike Rogers, the Intelligence Committee chairman, "looks forward to discussing this new explanation with Director Clapper as soon as possible to understand how (his office) reached this conclusion and why leaders of the intelligence community testified late last week that they were unaware of who changed the talking points," Rogers spokeswoman Susan Phalen told Fox News.
