CNN has uncovered exclusive new information about what is allegedly happening at the CIA, in the wake of the deadly Benghazi terror attack.
Four Americans, including Ambassador Christopher Stevens, were killed in the assault by armed militants last September 11 in eastern Libya.
Sources now tell CNN dozens of people working for the CIA were on the ground that night, and that the agency is going to great lengths to make sure whatever it was doing, remains a secret.
CNN has learned the CIA is involved in what one source calls an unprecedented attempt to keep the spy agency's Benghazi secrets from ever leaking out.

Since January, some CIA operatives involved in the agency's missions in Libya, have been subjected to frequent, even monthly polygraph examinations, according to a source with deep inside knowledge of the agency's workings.
The goal of the questioning, according to sources, is to find out if anyone is talking to the media or Congress.
It is being described as pure intimidation, with the threat that any unauthorized CIA employee who leaks information could face the end of his or her career.
In exclusive communications obtained by CNN, one insider writes, "You don't jeopardize yourself, you jeopardize your family as well."
Another says, "You have no idea the amount of pressure being brought to bear on anyone with knowledge of this operation."
"Agency employees typically are polygraphed every three to four years. Never more than that," said former CIA operative and CNN analyst Robert Baer.

CNN? Is this satire?
M’thinks the S is going to hit the fan shortly...
Me thinks a wag event will be up in 3.....2.......1.....
If CNN is reporting it then it is a dog whistle to the CIA that the administration means business when they say shut up.
Maybe not. Did you read the article?
Well, it does explain a lot.
oh we just got inter departmental war, CIA vs the WH...who wins?
CIA will be pissed at this.
Looks like the beginning of the Obammunist disinformation campaign to blame Benghazi on the CIA. Kills two birds with one stone: gets the blame off of Obama(and more importantly, Hillary) and hurts the CIA. One of those classic win-win situations for the Democrat/Progressive/Fascist/Marxist/Racist Party.
Geeze... how phony can a scandal become?
I really need to stock up on popcorn.
The Regime will do anything to keep the lid on this and anyone involved knows that Congress can’t or won’t protect them. John Boehner is doing his bit to cover for Obama, too. We have reached the stage where you have to wonder how a representative republic and its democratic organs can deal with an Administration that will do whatever they want without regard for the law.
So far, Jake Tapper has done more than Daryl Issa. Is Issa still alive??
There used to be patriotic people who worked for the CIA. Any who remain will immediately be on the short list of suspects in the event of any leaks.
How long until government agents with honor of country speak up and do what is right?
Get the feeling that someone is pissed that Carney went out and called the death of 4 US citizens a “phony” scandal?
Drew Griffin & Kathleen Johnston at CNN found and posted the Benghazi scoop that aired on Tapper’s THE LEAD. Tapper taking no credit for it.
Color me skeptical though.. CNN doesn’t report anything without clearing through King Obama. This could be a diversion, just like the ‘Anti-Islam YouTube Video’. I am CONVINCED Hillary assigned Stevens to be in Benghazi on 9/11 for him to be kidnapped so Obama could fulfill Morsi’s wish to get the Blind Sheik released. Hillary has more blood on her hands than anyone in this mess. She reduced Stevens’ security and REFUSED his requests for more.. He was set-up so Hillary could please her lover Morsi by giving Obama the excuse he needed to release (trade) the Blind Sheik.
