Is this the key page in the newly released Benghazi emails?!/StevenTDennis/status/334780521722822656

The White House has just released 100 pages of emails showing edits to the administration’s talking points on the Sept. 11 terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya. The press will have some digging to do, but to be honest, 100 pages is not all that much, and Roll Call’s Steven Dennis thinks he’s found the juiciest page: the one showing CIA Deputy Director Michael Morell’s handwritten edits.

A PDF of the emails dumped today is available here, but Morell’s scribbling out of paragraphs of information is perhaps the most dramatic edit among the batch. What was scratched out? The bit about the advance warning of the attempt to break into the U.S. Embassy in Cairo, all references to Al Qaeda, and reports of five recent attacks on foreign interests in Benghazi. The thing is, we already knew all of this from the hearings. We suspected this too:

White House Releases Emails on #Benghazi. It took this long to blackout everything in 100+ pages except the “To” and “From” I guess

Just read the #Benghazi emails.The ONLY thing you take away from it was that there was absolutely ZERO intelligence on the Youtube vid.

Keep in mind, Hillary Clinton was linking the #Benghazi attack to the Youtube video on Sept 12th, two days before these e-mails.

The WH releases 100 emails on Benghazi conflict. 100 emails over an entire conflict. I’m pretty sure I received over 100 emails today.

I easily get 100+ emails a day about benign stuff.How is it that the WH has only 100 emails about Benghazi to release? #Benghazi #IRS #DOJ
