Our take: How much did the White House know before and during the attacks on the U.S. Consulate in Libya? That is a question many want answered. According to Jennifer Rubin of the Washington post, some White House emails show that they may have known more than they have let on. Rubin also demands that we need further clarification from President Obama.
"President Obama is playing the media and, in turn, the American people for fools on the Libya scandal. Reporters and columnists who carried his water have been hung out to dry. The White House cover story namely that CIA got it all wrong and the White House (in urging us to believe the murder of four Americans was the result of a video riot gone bad) was telling us what it knew, when it knew has been severely undercut. Three e-mails sent to the White House within two hours of the attack identify it as a terrorist operation and inform the White House that local jihadists with al-Qaeda connections claimed responsibility."
