Benghazi Linked to WH
The watchdog group Judicial Watch obtained the documents through the Freedom of Information Act. The emails contained within the documents show that top White House official Ben Rhodes, who was an assistant to the president and deputy national security adviser for strategic communications, worked to craft the infamous Susan Rice talking points.

Now if that's not a racist statement I don't know what is."...(continued)
