    The Washington Post‘s Glenn Kessler has a story that puts Benghazi in a whole new context.
    Although the ambassador was killed, the Benghazi “consulate” was not a consulate at all but basically a secret CIA operation which included an effort to round up shoulder-launched missiles. In fact, only seven of the 30 Americans evacuated from Benghazi had any connection to the State Department; the rest were affiliated with the CIA.
    The official reports, such as the one from the Accountability Review Board and the Senate Homeland Security Committee report, essentially dance around that uncomfortable fact:

    “In December 2011, the Under Secretary for Management approved a one-year continuation of the U.S. Special Mission in Benghazi, which was never a consulate and never formally notified to the Libyan government.” (ARB)
    “The attacks in Benghazi occurred at two different locations: a Department of State ‘Temporary Mission Facility’ and an Annex facility (‘Annex’) approximately a mile away used by another agency of the United States Government.” (Senate report)

    So, from the State Department perspective, this was an attack on a CIA operation, perhaps by the very people the CIA was battling, and the ambassador tragically was in the wrong place at the wrong time. But, for obvious reasons, the administration could not publicly admit that Benghazi was mostly a secret CIA effort.

    The CIA since it's founding have operated from just about every American Embassy and consulate in the world. Before the CIA the only real intelligence agency America had was the Office of Naval Intelligence. For over two hundred years every country had Naval Attaches and Military Attaches working out of their embassies including America.

    Anyone who is working for the USA's State Department at any embassy or consulate who isn't always on the alert for anything that might help or hurt the USA is not earning their pay. You can never know too much about what the other people on this planet are thinking.

    Right or wrong, that's the way that I see it.

    So after 23 CIA operatives wreak havok in benghazi 23 get evacuated, also 7 civilians for good measure.

    I was just waiting for the hollywood sipdoctors to turn the story into a noble heroic effort of some sort.

    Special forces in the area. Dead ambassodor. CIA gets out in time. "The attack was over"
