Broadwell Sez Consulate Attack Aimed to Free Libyan Militia Members Held @ Secret CIA Prison There
Reaganite Republican ^ | 12 November 2012 | Reaganite Republican

I guess it's possible they were also mad about the YouTube video- lol

You probably wouldn't think that Al Qaeda types involved in the highly-successful raid on our Benghazi consulate would have chosen a 9/11 date of attack for any other reason than historical significance/celebration/revenge- most anybody would have expected heightened American security on that day, so if you're trying to launch a surprise attack to liberate your jihadi buddies, that probably wouldn't be the day to do it.

Yet the woman involved in the Petraeus affair
-author and Army counter-terrorism expert Paula Broadwell- seems to have betrayed the presence of just such a prison at the Benghazi complex 
(loose cannon, this one), claiming the CIA actually sees a prison-break as the primary driver of the attack:

Broadwell, a former counterterror operative, co-authored a bestselling biography of Petraeus. She discussed the book during a keynote speech on Oct. 26 at a University of Denver alumni symposium. 

(speech video in full -here-

During a question and answer session, Broadwell was asked about the September 11 attacks against the U.S. mission in Benghazi. She stated: 'Now I don’t know if a lot of you heard this, but the CIA annex had actually had taken a couple of Libya militia members prisoner. And they think that the attack on the consulate was an effort to try to get these prisoners back. So that’s still being vetted.'

The existence of a U.S. prison or CIA detention center in Benghazi would be a new development in the debate surrounding the attacks there. The information does not appear to be publicly known.


Well I dunno- they seemed pretty focused on finding, raping, and killing Ambassador Stevens to me. But if there was a CIA detention center at the compound, that also would bring an elevated level of defensive preparations- or so you'd think.

Alas, it's become glaringly obvious that US defensive posture at the US consulate was laughably weak in Benghazi on September 11th 2012, as Obama ignored desperate pleas for defensive upgrades for weeks. Our people on the ground were reporting the town to be ringed by Al Qaida training camps, yet the facility was insufficiently defended for even a basic diplomatic post (in a place as full-of-nuts as that). 

The presence of a CIA prison in there -presumably holding high-value targets, not your garden-variety Islamists- just makes it all the more gobsmacking that the Obama Administration could basically leave the place undefended. It doesn't matter how 'secret' they thought it was, all it takes in today's Libya is a rumor to bring the worst people in the country to your doorstep, while the Benghazi consulate's turn-tail Libyan security 'guards' were known to be compromised by Al Qaeda anyway.

All I know is that if the Gee-Oh-Pee doesn't possess the gumption to press Dear Leader up-against-the-wall on his Benghazigate LIES relentlessly, tirelessly, and driven with a determination that delivers justice, there's going to be political HELL to pay- you listening, lame-stream Republicans?

Not only did Obama and his bumbling crew botch this on every level imaginable, they're lying their asses off about it, and are now even involved in an all-out post-election effort to silence those who know the truth. Yet when it all comes out, this is going to make Watergate look like some cute, boyish prank- believe it.

Questioner asked about the MISSION in Bengahzi,not the CONSULATE. Consulates recieive special Security rooms for Personnel for cases like this,why was there none at Benghazi?
The American People are being Lied to by the Government and ALL the news outlets including Fox. How Many News People are asking the Most Important and Simplest Question about this entire Fiasco,What was Our Ambassador Doing in Bengahzi, the Hotbed of AlQueda in the First Place? The answer to that Would sink the Marxist in the White House Folks. The Idiots in the Media are Being willingly led down the Primrose Path about security this and security that,it was a CIA covert Operation,we are working with Jihadists to depose Assad,just like we did to depose Mubarack in Egypy,Kadafi in Libya and Now Assad. This is The Muslim in Chief in the White House Objective a Muslim Brother Hood Caliphate in the Middle East

Now look here Mr President, whatever you were doing at Benghazi you were doing with money from US taxpayers. The people are asking you nicely to just tell us what happened. Without openness we must assume you were running weapons to America’s enemies again, torturing captives again, and generally operating against America’s best interest again. If you had simply told us, it would be easier to handle. But no, you are making America fight for every morsel of information. Keep it up. Voters love will turn to dislike, then outright hatred and you will go the way of Qaddafi, Mussolini, and Khrushchev....deposited on the ash-heap of history. My advice, cooperate while you can. Build goodwill. I feel you will need it ahead.

Unless permission was given by Libya to hold prisoners, this makes Obama an international criminal.

This is why Obama blamed the video and no one wants to testify.

This is a story that is taken so far out of context it is mind boggling. The fact that they had two prisoners was widelu reported as was the fact that they were forced to let them go to the Libyans. No deep dark secret. No classified information. Some idiot grasping at straws trying to hype a story where none exists.

Anyone wanting on or off this ping list, please advise.

I'm wondering if she had an affair (aka setup) with Stevens at some point and that the supposed fag story was just a coverup.

She knows better than to be flapping her lips about anything.

She doesn't care....she just sold a lot of books....and she has someone else to blame stuff on....Petreaus. Look at her book 16,000 to 111 on the best selling list???

Since I believe she was an Obama plant...nothing will happen to her.

Indeed! The first iteration of this tin-foil hattery that I saw was from World Nut Daily. A perfect example of why WND has no credibility. Those authors who are not idiots and don't want to be seen as idiots should stop letting WND publish their work.
