Of Smoking Guns and Squirt Pistols

An interesting development has taken place regarding the whole Benghazi mishegas: there has been an email uncovered like you never--wait--I will tell it to you from Jonathan Karl who got a hold of it you don't know how (no, you do) but you could think he's on to something:

A still-classified State Department e-mail says that one of the first responses from the White House to the Benghazi attack was to contact YouTube to warn of the "ramifications" of allowing the posting of an anti-Islamic video, according to Rep. Darrell Issa, the Republican chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee.
The subject line of the e-mail, which was sent at 9:11 p.m. Eastern Time on the night of the attack, is "Update on Response to actions - Libya." The was written hours before the attack was over. 
Issa has asked the White House to declassify and release the document. In the meantime he has inserted a sentence from the e-mail in the Congressional Record. 
"White House is reaching out to U-Tube [sic] to advice ramification of the posting of the Pastor Jon video," the e-mail reads, according to Issa.
Wait, wait, what?  Is this email saying that the people in the government who realized that there was an attack going on in Benghazi concurrent with protests in Tripoli, in Cairo, in wherever, might have thought these things were related, and this was how to stop them, precisely as if there was no cover-up of anything at all, and the related interests at the government level were just covering their bases like grown-ups do? Because that was the intelligence, and that was what the White House said?

Wow. It's like almost the written record just about never solicits anything like the cover-up narrative.  I wonder if the lack of a cover-up has anything to do with that.

Check the comments.

Everything is proof of the coverup, ESPECIALLY things that indicate there wasn't one.

It's painfully obvious, the State Department orchestrated the protests in Cairo and Tripoli in order to make it appear logical to blame the Benghazi incident on the video. Covering their asses just in case the ambassador got hurt, revealing that Hillary can't control everything in the universe although it is clear that she can.

Captcha gives me a Riddled riddle: the thekmis captcha's to look like thekiwis.

Thunder, from that first comment:
"The same evening, 09/11/12, way over in Libya, a pre-panned attack occurred, there were no protests there that day. and if there were, it would have been in Tripoli."
The attack was pre-panned? So the critics were in on it!!
