This is an example of where the left needs to simply ignore anyone stupid enough to be trying to make this an issue.

What's the issue? A memo about the attacks was edited multiple times before release to the public immediately after the attacks - at a time when contradictory information was coming from multiple sources and no one knew the complete truth.

Okay. I believe that. So what. Now, if the statements in the memo were proven to be false and used to start a trillion dollar unjust invasion of another sovereign nation, I see the point of making this an issue.

But right wing desperation to find something to blame on Obama . . . anything at all . . . has led them to grasp this clearly cautious effort to avoid over-reaction until all the facts are in as one more thing to blame Obama for. They have no idea who was involved in the memo editing. They have no idea how many other agencies and sources provided input, nor what that input was. They have no idea how that editing harmed anyone. They don't even offer a story as to why Obama would benefit from this.

This is just wingnut fear and anger misdirected again.

Hey, if you uncover something real and devious, let me know. I will help you complain and demand better from our elected leaders. But this nonsense is just sad and pathetic.
