Skip to comments.Letting us in on a secret (CIA Benghazi)

When House Republicans called a hearing in the middle of their long recess, you knew it would be something big, and indeed it was: They accidentally blew the CIAs cover.

“Just because the CIA was there, does not mean that their purposes were on the up and up or even smart tactically.”
One of my favorite quotes about the CIA made in reference to Fast and Furious by a former undercover DEA agent
“If I were a criminal profiler, it wouldnt take much to identify a CIA pattern here [with Fast and Furious]: A wacko, barroom commando, illegal operation that makes no sense whatsoever, run outside the control of law enforcement.”
That’s why I say it is possible that CIA told State to stand down as it pertained to more personnel. They could have said that they would provide the security. I have no indication that is what happened. Just saying it is possible.
Here is what I think. There have probably been more instances of this kind of thing in our illustrious past. The thing is...other administrations were more adept at covering it up. Obama is a buffoon. However, Clinton with Slick Willie as her mentor, should have been on top of this.
Psychobabble that the leftist media shills will echo in 3.....2.....1.....
It is the old bait and switch operation meant to deflect from the core issues and incompetence of Obama and the democrats...just like they did in the Plame set-up. Yesterday, the house republicans proved that the budget had nothing to do with lax security.....so now it is on the plan C or D.
Blaming video did not work
Blaming Romney did not work
Blaming Stevens himself did not work
Blaming budget cuts did not work
Now they are going to deflect blame to republican’s having the nerve to hold a hearing.
It is pathetic. I hate our media.....lol
Here is one other thing to consider:
The video that got the blame.
Let’s say some CIA plan went awry and now Obama needs a scapegoat. Hey, let’s blame a video on youtube.
EXCEPT - there are murky connections to that video - including one of the people being an informant.
So was the video part of this whole thing to start with - or just something that existed and they latched on to it.
I tend to believe it was part of a plan. Whose plan???? Remains to be seen.
I seem to remember that the Annex was described as
a SAFE HOUSE on September 11, 2012
Yes, it was referred to as a Safe House.
Now, no matter what BS requirements are of the State Department - no bullets, yada yada yada, CIA are going to have weapons with bullets.
CIA provided the destabilization (their forte) to overthrow the dictator.
Poor Stevens was probably killed by the same arms that he helped supply.
I doubt we ever know the real story on this one.
CIA is the agency that probably has the tape of this whole event .-Interesting that ISSA said he wanted to see if before it got to the media.
After the attack on the mission the facility was not secured for HOW MANY days, giving enemies time to access any remaining documents and files that were not destroyed during the assault.
That part makes no sense to me knowing that the CIA was in that annex.
Could it be that it was intentional - like the intentional planting of that diary to be found by CNN.
Why, it is just another Obama cover story.
Great post! The plot thickens!
“CIA is the agency that probably has the tape of this whole event .-Interesting that ISSA said he wanted to see if before it got to the media.”
That comment was very telling. There is good reason to question how CNN got Stevens’ diary.
I asked the same question a while back. Was the video planned BEFORE the attack? They sure latched onto it a bit to quickly for my comfort zone. Sounds like one of the October surprises that went wrong, IMO.
My first question was: why was an Ambassador out and about
on 9/11 in a Muslim country in any year ?
Why was he out and about without security on 9/11 ?
Did he choose to go out and about on 9/11
on his own initiative or was he ordered to go ?
Later it was reported that he was known to be Gay
That raised more red flags !
When questioned Michael Hayden said his DEFAULT position
was that on 9/11 in Benghazi it was pre-planned Terrorism.
This may explain why the FBI took so long to get to Benghazi...CIA wanted to finish their own stuff there first (diary, cover stories, etc).
” This is about as intentionally convoluted psychobabble as I have ever read.”
I like this one....
PIERS MORGAN: The really important horse that should be flogged is the behavior and the statements of those who were in positions of responsibility and, we would assume, knowledge. And its pretty un-American, pretty un-American to be putting out completely false statements before you know the facts. Isnt it?
DEBBIE WASSERMAN SCHULTZ: Piers, it is not, it is not OK for you to be saying that the administration was putting out completely false statements. They put out information that they had at the time based on the intelligence they were given and then as the days wore on and more
MORGAN: That turned out to be completely wrong.
WASSERMAN SCHULTZ: Well, that doesnt mean it was false.
“Why, it is just another Obama cover story.”
Of course it is! That’s why I wanted everyone to read it. Pretzel logic at it’s most extreme!
My gut tells me Petraeus is being set up (setup being the operative word) to take the fall. Peter King wondered why he seemed to promote the video excuse long almost as long as the WH.
*****Not saying King is part of any set up, only that he wants to confirm or deny. ******
Let me get this straight - everyone in the ME knows out State Department is seeded with CIA agents - but the American people are to be kept in the dark? So it’s OK for the President to lie because Americans must not know what everyone in the world knows but us? Keystone cops. Are we this lame?
Shall we assume the 'protesters of the film' all armed and lacking signs - were 'aware' the CIA exists - that the CIA gathers intelligence and that they're stationed in foreign countries? Often on 'American soil' so to speak? And that all the other countries in the world do the same? If our enemies know, it's OK for our citizens to know... time for everyone to get real.
