CNN: Video Decision To Drop Terror Reference In Talking Points Made At White House Meeting

Jim Acosta from CNN:

"An email dated September 14 at 7:39PM, State Department Spokeswoman Victora Nuland wrote “Why do we want the Hill fingering Ansar al-Sharia when we aren’t doing that ourselves? And the penultimate point could be abused to beat the State Department for not paying attention to agency warnings.” At that point the emails indicate the references to Ansar al Sharia were removed."

"But Nuland chimed in again “These don’t resolve all of my issues or those of my building’s leadership. they are consulting with NSS (National Security Council Staff).” 

"One minute later Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s Deputy Chief of Staff emails “ We’ll work this through in the morning. Get comments back.” 

"Then Ben Rhodes, a top national security official warns the talking points shouldn’t jeopardize the investigation and tables the discussion for a White House meeting the next day, when it appears the decision was made to drop the reference to the terror group."
