CIA Desperately Trying to Keep Secret Pre-Benghazi Operations

John Glaser, August 02, 2013

This CNN report details secret efforts by the CIA to aggressively interrogate and polygraph a number of CIA agents who were on the ground in Libya just prior to the Benghazi attack on September 11, 2012 that got four Americans killed at the consulate building. It even mentions the possibility that covert U.S. forces were on the ground in Libya smuggling out weapons to bring to Turkey and subsequently deliver to Syrian rebels.

Related: Former U.S. Special Operations soldiers have claimed for months that the terrorist attack on the Benghazi consulate was retaliation for covert operations, including violent raids on militia encampments near Benghazi.

  1. Well Glaser…I guess there's really no need for "guess work" now when it comes to Obama's weapons to the terrorists in Syria…now is there???

  2. "terrorist attack"

    An attack on a foreign CIA station is a military attack. Terrorism is by definition against civilians. Are we considering the CIA civilians now? Sort of butchers the language.

  3. A consulate is not technically a CIA station even it serves that role in actuality. Consulates are considered civilian.

  5. the so called "conspiracy theorists" and major alt media sources have talked about the gun running aspect for months now. sorry, but the we need to step up the learning curve here people.

  6. I think AW covered early on the gun-running angle and the possibility of retaliation for CIA activities.

  7. Was it really a Consulate, or just a CIA outpost?

  8. "Sort of butchers the language"

    Well, yeah. It's what GovCo does best. Truth is hung like sausages, filets of honesty displayed in an insipid accordion style in the federal meat market of reality.

  9. Good question, it certainly wasn't a consulate per the link below. Libya only has an embassy, no consulate, and no mission.

  10. Good question, it certainly wasn't a consulate per http://www.usembassy.gov. Libya only has an embassy, no consulate, and no mission.

  11. Needed to compose you a word regarding the nice opinions you have contributed. Your good knowledge in playing with all the pieces is very useful. To be honest, this has been one outstanding blog

  12. The limited aid the US has sent to the Syrian rebels, while totally unacceptable in my opinion, is primarily a pittance for public consumption so that Obama gets to display his disapproval for the Assad regime’s violence.
