Petraeus: Benghazi talking points were essentially useless

We already knew that the White House’s claim that the Benghazi talking points came unedited from the intelligence community was a lie (they were edited a dozen times by the State Department), but here’s a new detail: David Petraeus, then the director of the CIA, thought that the resulting talking points were “essentially useless”.

That’s a quote from ABC’s Jonathan Karl, not a direct quote. Petraeus wrote:

I would just as soon not use them, but it’s their [the White House’s] call.

The White House’s call.
