Was the annex in Benghazi a secret CIA prison?
Back on October 26th the woman who we now know was General Petraeus’ lover gave a speech in which she stated the following:
Now, I don’t know if a lot of you have heard this but the CIA annex had actually taken a couple of Libyan militia members prisoner, and they think that the attack on the consulate was an effort to try get these prisoners back, so that’s still being vetted
The CIA is adamantly denying this claim that there was a secret prison located at the annex in Benghazi, stating that Paula Broadwell probably got this information from a Fox News report earlier in the day.
And honestly I hope that is the truth because if it is not the truth that means she probably got this information directly from David Petraeus and to think that one of the most admired generals of our generation would give this type of top secret information to his lover is very troubling and indicative of the reason he needed to step down.
We still don’t know what the truth is at this time; it is possible that the Fox News report was correct even though the CIA denies it and it is possible she did get the information from General Petraeus, which would make this claim very plausible.
What we do know at this time is the fact that the timing of General Petraeus is very suspicious because we now know that the FBI uncovered this affair months ago and it is being reported that Eric Holder was informed of it at that time. In a case where national security is on the line shouldn’t Barack Obama have been notified of the affair months ago? And shouldn’t David Petraeus have been asked to resign at that time? Did the Obama regime purposely delay this announcement until after the election, and if they did doesn’t that mean they put Barack Obama’s reelection ahead of national security? Or did they hold onto this information and use it to blackmail the general in order to keep him from testifying on Benghazi?
And the last and most obvious question is this; was the CIA actually running a secret prison in spite of Barack Obama’s executive order which supposedly stopped the operation of such sites? We already know Barack Obama signed and executive order to shut down GITMO but GITMO remains open so could this be another case of an executive order which wasn’t followed?
We also know that Barack Obama has been less than truthful about the Benghazi attack from the very beginning, is this also part of the cover up?
There are many questions which need answers which is why General Petraeus MUST testify under oath in front of the Congress. The plot thickens…..
