With an ABC News report raising new questions about whether the White House changed the controversial talking points delivered days after last September's Libya attack, the White House is pushing back its daily press briefing by the hour.
ABC News reported that it had obtained 12 different versions of the talking points "that show they were extensively edited as they evolved from the drafts first written entirely by the CIA to the final version distributed to Congress and to U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Susan Rice before she appeared on 5 talk shows the Sunday after that attack."
The White House has said it's editing was minimal, but the briefing was originally scheduled for 12:30 p.m. Then it was 1:45 p.m. -- and now, it's 3:15 p.m.That's for the general press: Politico reports that the White House pushed back the original briefing in order to hold an off-the-record session with invited reporters. The White House didn't confirm the off the record briefing.
