As the State Department was delivering 1,300 printed pages of emails from deceased Ambassador Chris Stevens to the Select Committee on Benghazi, Judicial Watch was continuing its effort to chip away at the Benghazi debacle with dozens of Freedom of Information Act requests. The most recent documents Judicial Watch secured are heavily redacted but do mention the White House’s rush to coordinate its response to the Benghazi terror attack with “U-Tube.”

An email sent to the Diplomatic Security Command Center management team and watch team on the night of Sept. 11, 2012 — “only three hours after the initial attack on U.S. personnel in Benghazi” —concludes with a note that the “White House is reaching out to U-Tube to advise ramifications of posting of the Pastor Jon video.” (The Pastor Jon video, entitled “God vs. Allah,” seems to have been passed over in favor of “The Innocence of Muslims,” produced by Nakoula Basseley Nakoula.)
A previous dump of 296 State Department emails in May included one telling the story of the “right-wing extremist” whose anti-Muslim had sparked the “deadly riots.” That email was sent Sept. 12 — pretty quick work.

Judicial Watch also reports that the newly procured documents “also include a previously Secret ‘Attack Timeline,’ dated September 12, 2012, which raised additional questions about the Obama administration’s response to the attack. The State Department Bureau of Diplomatic Security makes no mention of any spontaneous demonstration or Internet video in describing the Benghazi assault.”
“The attack timeline also includes a section labeled ‘Causes and Responsibility,’ which is redacted completely,” notes Judicial Watch.
“@JudicialWatch: BREAKING: New State Documents Show Quick White House Effort to Link Benghazi to Internet Video:" This is truly sickening.

@JudicialWatch It is an indictment of all American politicians that the video creator is still a political prisoner.

@JudicialWatch what do you want to bet that with ALL this surrounding her, she STILL won't answer for any of it. Be it jail or otherwise.

@JudicialWatch Susan Rice appearance was enough to warrant suspicion as she was nothing more than a clown driving the clown car! Disgraceful

And now Hillary Clinton is campaigning on the idea that the entire Benghazi investigation was put together to drag down her poll numbers?
