    CIA confirms role in US consulate attack in Benghazi

    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worl...-Benghazi.html
    CIA confirms role in US consulate attack in Benghazi


    The US consulate in Benghazi that came under attack by militants on September 11 was mainly a secret CIA operation, shedding new light on the deadly assault.


    excerpt:


    The Wall Street Journal said the consulate was being used as a CIA operation, adding that of the 30 American officials evacuated from Benghazi following the assault, just seven worked for the State Department.


    It also identified the two security contractors killed in the attack former Navy SEALs Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty as working for the Central Intelligence Agency and not the State Department.

    In a break from tradition, it said CIA Director David Petraeus did not attend the ceremony when the coffins arrived back on American soil in order to conceal the CIA operation in eastern Libya.


    It said the nearly two dozen CIA operatives secretly worked out of a separate building known as the "annex," where officials at the consulate had retreated following the initial attack before coming under fire again.

    (this is why they have been reluctant to talk)

    The CIA was operating a covert mission in the U.S. consulate in Libya when it came under attack by al Qaeda-linked militants on September 11, intelligent chiefs have admitted.

    Four Americans, including Ambassador Chris Stevens, were killed in the six-hour, commando-style attack on the US Mission in the Libyan city, for which al-Qaeda and Islamist militia Ansar al-Sharia have been blamed.

    The CIA made the revelation as it laid bare the heroic rescue by a handful of its agents in which they fought off wave after wave of mortar and rocket attacks with just their handguns as they sought to infiltrate the compound and shepherd its American staff to safety.
    A timeline, released by the agency, has blown open the dramatic sequence of events, revealing for the first time that of the 30 American officials evacuated from the country following the deadly attack, just seven worked for the State Department.

    Why, the very claims those you support have made in the past. Oh that's right I forgot some have "selective memory Obama syndrome" as exemplified by the way they only remember it when Obama claims something, that isn't shown to be a bald faced lie, conveniently forgetting it when it is publicly shown to be a bald faced lie to the American people who pay his paycheck.
    Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religiouspeople. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other. ~Still waiting to see one of you liberals demonstrate that "separation of church and state" is a concept that is actually enumerated in our Constitution.

    And not just a liberal activist, legislate from the bench, fabrication.

    Al Qaeda has been dealt some hard blows..

    Ansar al-Sharia has since denied that they carried out the attack in Benghazi.

    But, since it was a covert operation... it could have been another group entirely.

    Hard blows and decimation are different things.
