The Five Different Reasons Why Susan Rice's Benghazi Talking Points Were Edited

A clear statement has yet to emerge from the Obama administration about who edited Susan Rice's talking points — and why — before she relayed faulty information on Sunday talk shows.

1. References were removed to not tip off al-Qaeda and were substituted with "extremists," according to David Petraeus.

2. The links to al-Qaeda were too "tenuous" to make public by DNI because the source wasn't trusted.

3. "The talking points were debated and edited by a collective of experts from around the IC," not just DNI, according to a DNI spokesman.

4. The CIA told Senators McCain, Graham, and Ayotte the FBI removed references to al-Qaeda from the talking points "to prevent compromising an ongoing criminal investigation."

5. The CIA later called Senators McCain, Graham, and Ayotte back, saying they had misspoke to them and that they — not the FBI — had edited the talking points.
