    No, there were claims by the Administration that it contained precursors to chemical weapons. Those claims were admitted to have been made absent any intelligence evidence.

    Have you offered any evidence that there was specific intelligence offered by the Administration? Please be specific.

    Declassifying them is a possibility to be sure. Though arguing that they are dragging their feet by not doing so is unwarranted speculation. You'll notice that Rep. Schiff, after seeing the documents hasn't asked for them to be declassified.

    Often classified information is classified for a reason..because it contains sources or methods that risk national security if publically revealed.

    Well you implied that yes. But your link contradicted you so you haven't really offered any evidence for that assertion.

    To whit, your quote was:

    Michael Morell, former deputy director and acting director of the CIA, wrote in his May 2015 book The Great War of Our Time that while the CIA knew “the demonstration and violence in Cairo were sparked by people upset over a YouTube video,” intelligence “analysts never said the video was a factor in the Benghazi attacks.” (p. 205-206)

    So is there any evidence that Susan Rice's statements were based on intelligence reports and not political reports?

    Also, if you think I've overlooked your post please shoot me a PM, I'm not intentionally ignoring you.
