BBC Benhgazi Reversal – They are going to cover it!
The White House has hid behind carefully parsed words and the adoring press for 8 months. The shield is beginning to crack under the weight of credible testimony and email documentation of their cover up. The BBC issued an apology for ignoring the story to this point.

There’s new evidence, obtained by ABC, that the Obama administration did deliberately purge references to “terrorism” from accounts of the attack on the Benghazi diplomatic mission, which killed four people including the US ambassador to Libya.
Conservatives have long maintained that the administration deliberately suppressed the truth about the attacks. This is the first hard evidence that the state department did ask for changes to the CIA’s original assessment. Specifically, they wanted references to previous warnings deleted and this sentence removed: “We do know that Islamic extremists with ties to al-Qa’ida participated in the attack.” There’s little doubt in my mind that this will haunt Hillary Clinton if she decides to run for president, unless she executes some pretty fancy footwork. State department spokesperson Victoria Nuland is directly implicated, and the fingerprints of senior White House aides Ben Rhodes and Jay Carney are there as well.
