I think you guys have gotten a bit overwhelmed by this entire mess. What you should get out of this...thanks to the Broadwell tramp...is that the CIA was running an interrogation center there at Benghazi. They had two prisoners of some significance. This would explain why they had so many CIA guys in one location.
One might now start to connect the dots and realize that the bad guys who showed up that night were really looking to rescue their two buddies....who they felt were there at the ambassador’s house. They guessed wrong. The ambassador ended up dead. Kinda like a bungled SWAT raid on the wrong address...which occurs weekly in America.
The President would hate to admit that they still run interrogation centers in faraway lands....which was one of those 100 bad things that GW did and Senator Obama routinely criticized.
You think? If the first announcement of the Benghazi attack would have been, “there were several militants that were at the facility for questioning and a terrorist group attempted a raid to free them”. This would have been old news gone in 15 minutes.
