Yahoo is doing a nice service re the Benghazi emails that the White House released last night. As released they were difficult to process. Many were smudged making them hard to read. Having them all in an unsearchable PDF made them difficult to cross reference.

Yahoo is digitizing all of them and creating an interactive that works like an email inbox. You can click through and see which email was sent when, and by whom. Check it out.

Only about 25% of the emails have been digitized and included so far. But just looking at the inbox at this point, two things are apparent. Tommy Vietor, the loyalist bus driver who became Obama’s national security spokesman, is the one who looped the State Department into the talking points discussion. That’s in the 9/14/2012 email sent at 6:21 PM. It’s after that that State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland has a conversation with her “building’s leadership” and comes back with substantive edits to the CIA’s talking points.

Yeah, the e-mail @ 6:33pm already shows White House involvement, and "highlighted" portions that, apparently, aren't highlighted.

This is the tip of the iceberg. It is just going to get uglier and uglier.

Oh, of course they were smudged, because they needed to be able to redact some things. I guess they don't have an app for that, yet?

How the hell do you "smudge" an email?

They printed them out and scanned them, evidently using ancient machines.

Remember? They printed them and allowed investigators to 'view' them for a short while. They probably scanned them into pdf. format after they were handled. (That explains the chocolate donuts they served during the viewing, eh?)
