New report claims the CIA annex in Benghazi was a detention and interrogation site
I previously wrote this post about the possibility that General Petraeus’ mistress, Paula Broadwell, had disclosed on October 26th the possibility that the CIA annex in Benghazi was being used as a prison.
This is something the CIA adamantly denies, claiming that Paula Broadwell got misinformation from a report done by Fox News earlier that same day.
According to this article Fox News now has new unnamed sources which state this claim is indeed true:
We originally reported on October 26th based on conversations with sources in touch with those who were at the annex that night, that the CIA contractors had captured three Libyan prisoners who they handed over to the Libyan authorities when they fled Benghazi. Now we never knew who those prisoners were; we didn’t know what ended up happening to them but we have now learned that those three prisoners had been held for a few days at the annex and more than just Libyan militia members were held there. There may have been prisoners from other African countries maybe even the Middle East. They were interrogated allegedly by CIA contractors.
If this news is true we now know two things we didn’t know before: One; General Petraeus likely leaked sensitive information to his lover and if this is the case his resignation is justified, and two; Barack Obama’s executive order banning this type of “dark site” was just as phony as his executive order shutting down GITMO, and most likely this is part of what the Obama regime is trying so desperately to cover up.
Barack Obama may have hoped that the resignation of General Petraeus would make it more difficult to get to the truth of the matter but all it has done is shined a spotlight on the Benghazi scandal and raised more questions that Barack Obama doesn’t really want answered and that is all the more reason why David Petraeus must testify before the Congress.
