Report: CIA´s Benghazi Annex
a Detention, Interrogation Site

Breitbart Big Government, by John Sexton

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 11/12/2012 8:57:31 PM

Unnamed sources tell Fox News that the CIA Annex in Benghazi held three Libyan militia members for days and that retrieving these detainees may have been a motive for the September 11th attack on the nearby US consulate. The new reporting builds on details previously published by Fox´s Jennifer Griffin and information apparently leaked by ex-intelligence officer Paula Broadwell last month. Speaking on Fox News Monday, Griffin indicated new sources suggest the CIA annex may have been a detention site for local militia forces and even for some prisoners from other parts of Africa.

Did Petraeus tell Broadwell? He must have. Did Turkish General Counsel Akin know that Libyan militants were being detained and likely interrogated by the CIA?

Maybe Petraeus´ "inappropriate relationship" was like Jimmah Carter´s... "lusting in his mind."

Power may be the ultimate aphrodesiac, but I wouldn´t look twice at Petraeus.

Obama and Hillary who are suppose to be in charge, know nothing about anything. Why not? If they did know, they are lying which is what I think. If they didn´t, they should have. Obama´s finger is getting a workout these days as he is pointing it at everyone else. No wonder Hillary and Panetta have flown the coop and are in Australia. Wonder how long they will have to stay there?

Looking at Paula Broadwell´s talk, you have to conclude that she is a extremely poised and polished and accomplished speaker. She didn´t just let slip that little tidbit about prisoners being detained in the CIA´s Benghazi Annex.

Time to start going over the speeches, talks, blogs, and interviews given by the lesser underlings peripherally associated with this since 09/11/12. I bet there is a whole basket full of Easter eggs waiting to be ´found´.

At least the SEX brought the Benghazi story to the to of the fold and to the headlines of the socialist newscasters of TV. Sad but that´s what it takes to get their attention? I bet they won´t bother talking about the sad tale of the 4 American MURDERED there though. Their attention span is that of a gnat!

OK, friends. Here´s my take. Obama didn´t want Petraeus to testify in front of the committee because he would tell the truth. So, Obama tried to blackmail him with the affair thing and Petraeus called his bluff and spilled the beans. The rest of this nonsense is fallout from that. Petraeus can still testify when he gets a subpoena, he will. Remember back to Watergate that Halderman and Eirlichman had resigned their jobs and testified before Congress. And you know Obama knew everything. One Cabinet leader investigating another? Holder told BO. Stinks. Despite his personal failings, I think Petraeus is still a soldier and will tell the truth.

Unfortunately, if the media gives this any attention, its only for the salacious aspect. They have already forgotten that 4 brave men were murdered and that help was withheld from their pleas.

There has to be more of an expalnation why the military is agreeing to cover this up than a sorted affair or two. Having detainees at the annex (where the CIA was housed) would certainly ruffle a few libs, uh?

The point is not the broad and the general´s sodomizing each other, it´s the ambassador getting sodomized and murdered by the muzzies and nothing, repeat, nothing, repeat NOTHING is done about it.

What we get is Broadwellisms instead.

Treason, and its name is Bow-Boy.

There is no reason that Petraeus can’t testify in front of Congress and in my opinion, he should. Since he went to Libya late last month and personally debriefed the CIA station chief and other CIA personnel who were in Benghazi on Sept. 11, he undoubtedly knows the truth about what actually happened during the attack. In spite of the affair, which he admitted when questioned, he is an honorable man, who, when put under oath, will tell Congress the truth.

If Petraeus agrees to testify in front of Congress, and the Obama administration thinks that he intends to reveal the truth about what really happened in Benghazi, you will see a concerted effort by the White House, Congressional Dems, and other assorted party operatives, including, of course, the liberal media, to demonize Patraeus and undercut his credibility prior to that testimony. It will make their scurrilous campaign of lies and innuendo against Romney look like child’s play.

In the meantime, I would advise Patraeus to hire a formidable security detail of retired Special Forces personnel that he has known for years and who are personally loyal to him. Otherwise, he could become another casualty of Benghazi.

Personally, I don´t think the libs will be upset when they inevitably learn there were prisoners held (and prehaps tortured) in the consulate annex there in Bengazi. After all, if Obama allowed that, it MUST be OK. He wouldn´t have done that unless it was absolutely necessary, right? I mean, it´s not like some conservative demon was in charge, you know?

Obama will block subpoena or testimony on its own by claim of Executive Privilege.
It will then goe to the Courts and be ruled ok or will go to courts and be dragged out for yrs.
Notice that the issue of Gun-running is off the table-the visit to Turkey by the Amabassdor Stevens, etc...and guns for the Syrian terrorists.
The National Front for the Liberation of Libya´s HQ is there in Benghazi. And during the kadaffi hunt we armed them, so why stop now?imo of course.

Yes, he cheated on his wife. It´s not as if there wasn´t plenty of temptation to do so. But now the word is out. If he is caught in more lies, Petraeus´s reputation will sink deeper. If he tells the truth about Obama, "damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead," he will live--or die--a hero to his country. He should be piteously watchful for those who will seek to silence him. Hillary is in Australia, hiding out like a member of the Wisconsin legislature. She can always claim clean hands if Petraeus meets misfortune. Obama always--always--seeks to do harm.

It really doesn´t matter if it was a prison or not. We cannot lose focus that Obama knew, Hillary knew, Susan Rice knew, Panetta knew, and Petraeus knew, and all of them left our guys to die. Americans don´t leave their people on the battleground when help was readily available. General Hamm tried to get them help and was relieved of his position immediately. The CIA guys bravely fought off these monsters for as long as they could thinking all along that there would be help and none came.

There are several people to blame, but the top one is Bronco Bamma. Shame on all of them. Do not lose focus.

Perhaps the terrorists that were sent in by Russia...were sent in to get Stevens in the same manner the USA let their rebel terrorists "get" Kaddaffi (raped and murdered) .....as payback .....and a message to stop the gun running and the missile running into the Russian´s friend and their allie Assad´s Syria...

Perhaps that is why the Russians had a nuclear sub off the East Coast of the USA on Election Day ....for the first time since the early 90´s....

Perhaps that is why the CEO of Locheed Martin, makers of ballistic missiles and munitions.....tendered his resignation the same day as Petraeus....for " AN AFFAIR".....

Perhaps he too did not want to be interviewed by Congress for helping our President run an illegal...unapproved war....to turn another nation over to The Muslim Brotherhood...for a complete takeover of the Middle East by the Muslim Brotherhood....you know, that Muslim Brotherhood, the IslamoCommunists....that Huma and her Muslim Brotherhood parents support so well.....

A federal court has ruled that an American school student has a right to free expression -- unless that American might be threatened for that expression by others, in which case state officials have the right to quash the offending expression to appease potential aggressors. Which, ipso facto, means Americans have no right to free expression at all. For if it’s not the government’s role to protect expression that is thought to be offensive by a vicious mob, what purpose does the First Amendment have? “Safe” expression needs no protection, after all. The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals has ruled

WASHINGTON — The recovery appeared to be reaching escape velocity at the end of December, but it turns out the economy wasn´t expanding quite as fast as initially thought — and that doesn´t bode well for hopes of a breakout this year. The Commerce Department sharply reduced its estimate of fourth-quarter growth to a moderate 2.4% annual rate. Friday´s revision downsized big gains in consumer spending and exports from its initial estimate of 3.2% in January. The updated figures on total economic output, known as gross domestic product, indicated the economy entered this year with less momentum than analysts had

The Walt Disney Company has given notice to the Boy Scouts of America that it will pull all funding to the group starting in 2015 because of a BSA membership policy that bans gay leaders, the entertainment company said Friday. Disney does not give money directly to the national organization or local BSA councils. However, through its VoluntEARS program, Disney allows employees to do volunteer work in exchange for cash donations to the charities of their choice. Employees taking part in the VoluntEARS program will no longer be able to submit the funds to the Boy Scouts, the organization said.

U.S. Spies Said No Invasion—

On Thursday night, the best assessment from the U.S. intelligence community—and for that matter most experts observing events in Ukraine—was that Vladimir Putin’s military would not invade Ukraine. Less than 24 hours later, however, there are reports from the ground of Russian troops pushing into the Ukrainian province of Crimea. It’s hardly a full-blown invasion. But it’s not quite the picture U.S. analysts were painting just a day before. There was good reason to think Putin wouldn’t do it. Russia’s Foreign Minister, Sergei Lavrov told Secretary of State John Kerry that Russia respected the territorial integrity of the Ukraine. U.S.

Half of $10 million gold trove

Finding a trove of 19th century gold coins was an unexpected windfall for a California couple, but what comes next is one of life´s great certainties: taxes. The couple is likely to lose about half the coins´ value in taxes to the U.S. government, thanks to a 1969 tax case called Cesarini v. United States. In the 45-year-old case, a husband and wife bought a used piano for $15 but found about $4,500 stashed inside. Although they argued that the money shouldn´t be taxed, the court found in favor of the IRS. That means that the unnamed California couple who

A treaty signed in 1994 by the US and Britain could pull both countries into a war to protect Ukraine if President Putin´s troops cross into the country. Bill Clinton, John Major, Boris Yeltsin and Leonid Kuchma – the then-rulers of the USA, UK, Russia and Ukraine - agreed to the The Budapest Memorandum as part of the denuclearization of former Soviet republics after the dissolution of the Soviet Union. Technically it means that if Russia has invaded Ukraine then it would be difficult for the US and Britain to avoid going to war. The revelation comes as reports suggest the

Minutes after issuing a stern warning to Russia and saying there will be a price to pay if it interferes militarily in Ukraine, President Obama headed to a “happy hour” with fellow Democrats. Speaking at a fundraiser for the Democratic National Committee, Mr. Obama struck a very different tone than he had less than 30 minutes earlier, when he appeared with little warning in the White House press briefing room and issued a vague threat to Moscow. “Well, it’s Friday. It’s after 5 o’clock. So, this is now officially happy hour with the Democratic party,” the president told his cohorts.

Speaking to the Democratic National Committee Friday night, President Obama defended his right to use executive authority and mocked Republicans for their obsession with the Affordable Care Act. Obama leavened his sharp policy message--which focused on increasing the minimum wage and expanding health care access--with moments of levity, telling the crowd at the Capital Hilton, "Well, it´s Friday. It´s after 5:00. So this is now officially happy hour with the Democratic Party." As the group laughed and applauded, the president added, "I can do that. It is an executive action. I have the authority."

During the 2008 presidential campaign, Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin warned that if Senator Barack Obama were elected president, his "indecision" and "moral equivalence" may encourage Russia´s Vladimir Putin to invade Ukraine.

For those comments, she was mocked by the high-brow Foreign Policy magazine and its editor Blake Hounshell, who now is one of the editors of Politico

If you listen to the chattering class in Washington, D.C., Hillary Clinton is a virtual certainty for the 2016 Democratic nomination, and the front runner in the next presidential race. But in private, rumors persist that the former Secretary of State may not even be capable of making it to Iowa and New Hampshire. Clinton, these skeptics often say, will not run for president again because of health concerns. These ubiquitous rumors of her health have been fueled in part by the supermarket tabloids. The National Enquirer wrote in 2012 that Clinton had brain cancer, something a spokesman dismissed then as “absolute

Apparently it´s not the price of the groceries, but the nutrition labels on food packages that make grocery shopping such a difficult and trying experience for the moms of America.In pitching new, improved nutrition labels at the White House on Thursday, first lady Michelle Obama tried to identify with women who do the grocery shopping for their families.

The “greatest buried treasure ever unearthed in the United States” is about to be hit by the tax collector.

She quoted a 2013 tax guide in which the IRS stated: “If you find and keep property that does not belong to you that has been lost or

Kerry Kennedy has been found not guilty of drugged driving — and gave herself a hearty round of applause after jurors were dismissed from court by a Westchester County judge. The jury handed down the verdict after just 30 minutes of deliberation Friday morning. The six-member panel had deliberated about 45 minutes Thursday night after being handed the case. Kennedy — who had faced up to a year in jail if convicted — hugged both her lawyers as the verdict was read, and then began clapping after the jurors left the courtroom. Her lawyers and a band of supporters, including

President Barack Obama has launched a new program to help African American boys and drew on the low points in his youth during a speech this afternoon. ´I made bad choices. I got high, not always thinking about the harm it could do. I didn´t always take school as seriously as I should have. I made excuses. Sometimes I sold myself short,´ Obama said in the East Room of the White House on Thursday. His comments about his teenage years came as he launched the program called ´My Brother´s Keeper´ which plans to strengthen efforts in creating more opportunities for young black

The question isn’t why Arthur Chu brought his peculiar, buzzer-smacking brand of game play to “Jeopardy.” The question is why, in 50 long years of the show’s history, more people haven’t done the same. Chu, if you haven’t heard of him, is the “Jeopardy” contestant nonchalantly bulldozing America’s collective nostalgic vision for how game shows should work, who cruised to his eighth straight victory on Thursday night. The insurance compliance technician from Ohio who is also a “stand-up comedian, Shakespearean actor, improviser, tour guide, genius and, most importantly, voiceover artist,” according to his Web site — has used his renegade style

Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) told a gathering of Tea Party conservatives that those affiliated with the movement need to watch what they say, alluding to his recent criticism of right-wing rocker Ted Nugent. "In order for us to be a bigger party, we have to reach out to more people, not just those of us here. It has to be a bigger party, it has to be a bigger movement," Paul said at a Tea Party Patriots event in Washington, D.C.
