Quick Takes: News You May Have Missed

This information came amid reports White House staffers held regular meetings and even a weekly conference call with Media Matters.

The Media Matters donor list includes the Pritzker Family Foundation, which donated a total of $400,000 to the progressive attack group in 2007, 2008 and 2009. The family foundation is directed by Penny Pritzker.

 

On Jan. 23, new White House counselor John Podesta announced a comprehensive review of the way that “big data” can affect “the way we live and work” and “the relationship between government and citizens.”

The panel will include Pritzker, Secretary of Energy Ernie Moniz, Obama science adviser John Holdren, economic adviser Gene Sperling and other senior government officials.

Podesta anticipates that the panel’s conclusions will frame “the key questions that the collection, availability, and use of ‘big data’ raise – both for our government, and the nation as a whole.”

Senate Confirms Muhammad Jamal Network’s Involvement In Benghazi Attack

A Senate investigation confirmed for the first time that an Egyptian organization participated in the deadly attack on the U.S. special mission and nearby CIA annex in Benghazi, Libya.

The 88-page Senate report states that “individuals affiliated with terrorist groups, including … the Mohammad Jamal Network, participated in the September 11, 2012, attacks.”

Until now, the U.S. government has not connected the Egypt-based Jamal Network with the Benghazi attack.

In October 2013, the State Department declared the Muhammad Jamal Network an official terrorist organization. However, the agency’s indictment of the group and its leader, Muhammad Jamal, doesn’t mention Benghazi.

The State Department document says “Jamal formed the MJN after his release from Egyptian prison in 2011 and established several terrorist training camps in Egypt and Libya.”

The United Nations, meanwhile, has accused Jamal of participating in the attack. A UN Security Council resolution issued in October 2013 added the Jamal Network to its list of Al Qaeda groups. Unlike the State Department description, the UN resolution details Jamal’s alleged involvement in the attack on the U.S. special mission and nearby CIA annex.
