“Greg, we’re under attack.”

Those were the words uttered by Ambassador Stevens in Benghazi when Gregory Hicks, deputy chief of mission in Libya, called him.

He didn’t say “Greg, there is a large demonstration outside.”

Gregory Hicks testified that the Libyan president said the attacks were led by Islamic extremists with possible terror ties.

The Libyan president didn’t say “hey, it was just a demonstration that got outta hand”

Gregory Hicks:

“The only report that our mission made through every channel was that this was an attack. No protest.”

Beth Jones, a high ranking State Department employee, testified that she emailed the Libyan ambassador:

“I told him that the group that conducted the attacks, Ansar al-Sharia, is affiliated with Islamic terrorists.”

But what did the Obama administration conjure up in the days after the attack?

That it was all a protest that got outta hand.

The Weekly Standard has obtained a timeline briefed by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence detailing the heavy substantive revisions made to the CIA’s talking points, just six weeks before the 2012 presidential election, and additional information about why the changes were made and by whom.

As intelligence officials pieced together the puzzle of events unfolding in Libya, they concluded even before the assaults had ended that al Qaeda-linked terrorists were involved. Senior administration officials, however, sought to obscure the emerging picture and downplay the significance of attacks that killed a U.S. ambassador and three other Americans. The frantic process that produced the changes to the talking points took place over a 24-hour period just one day before Susan Rice, U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, made her now-famous appearances on the Sunday television talk shows. The discussions involved senior officials from the State Department, the National Security Council, the CIA, the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, and the White House.

No cover-up?

Gregory Hicks testified that he was demoted once he questioned the blaming of a youtube video for the attack.

No cover-up?

Gregory Hicks testified that he was ordered not to talk to Representative Jason Chaffetz, who was in Libya to investigate the attack.

No cover-up?

Eric Nordstrom testified that the Accountability Review Board did not interview the people who were directly involved with the attack before they issued their findings:

“They stopped short of interviewing people who I personally know were involved in key decisions,”

No cover-up?

This is a obvious cover-up. It’s so clear…

and so sad to see political loyalties being placed ahead of the truth.
