White House Email On Benghazi Is Now Marked “SECRET”


President Obama and his administration are “playing games” with Congress over the White House emails recently released on the U.S. consulate attack in Benghazi.

FOX is reporting that there are differences in the White House emails sent to Judicial Watch, and those sent to the House Oversight Committee, as it looks into the terrorist attack.

“The key question is whether Congress now has all the documents,” Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, a member of the oversight committee, said. As for differences between the two sets of documents, Chaffetz alleged: “They are playing games. The classification and redactions are different. Why should Judicial Watch get more than Congress after issuing a subpoena?”

The emails published by Judicial Watch last week, which showed additional White House involvement in shaping the public explanation of what happened, helped trigger the announcement Friday by House Speaker John Boehner of a select committee to investigate.

And now surprisingly, the recently released email to Judicial Watch, which caused all of this upheaval, is now marked “SECRET.”

The email released to Judicial Watch is now marked “SECRET,” and the same email released to the Oversight Committee is marked “Confidential.” Both are marked to “DECLASSIFY” on Sept. 13, 2037 — 25 years after the terrorist attack which killed four Americans.

It is blatantly obvious that the Obama administration is desperately trying to hide something here.
