    CIA 'running arms smuggling team in Benghazi when consulate was attacked'

    Up to 35 CIA operatives were working in the city during the attack last September on the US consulate that resulted in the death of Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans, according to CNN.

    The circumstances of the attack are a subject of deep division in the US with some Congressional leaders pressing for a wide-ranging investigation into suspicions that the government has withheld details of its activities in the Libyan city.

    The television network said that a CIA team was working in an annex near the consulate on a project to supply missiles from Libyan armouries to Syrian rebels.

    Sources said that more Americans were hurt in the assault spearheaded by suspected Islamic radicals than had been previously reported. CIA chiefs were actively working to ensure the real nature of its operations in the city did not get out.

    So only the losses suffered by the State Department in the city had been reported to Congress.

    Anyone think this is a phony scandal now?

    Sounds interesting. Thanks for posting it.

    I've always wondered where the hell all the survivors were. Sort of makes sense with this info.

    If you don't care, that's fine, but being jaded doesn't excuse repeating what the puppet master says. It pretty much says you're not as "Other" as you want to portray yourself.

    I haven't repeated anything and Stevens wasn't a drone. It was his call to be there on 9-11, look it up, regardless of what the CIA was up to at the time, and they are always up to something so don't try to make this into the Second Coming when you won't find anything more than Americans doing what they usually do, screwing up in a situation they never should have been in in the first place.

    When you leave the world alone you don't end up dead far from home but you don't get to pull the strings on it either. As long as we like to pull those strings, and we love to calling it in our National Interests, boxes covered in flags will be sent home. Deal with it rationally or don't bother.

    The thought that the different talking points between the State Dept and Obama's Press Secy somehow indicates a cover-up. There was miscommunication between them, which should be taken care of to be sure, but hardly some hidden truth to be found in this.

    It's pretty obvious that there wasn't sufficient communication within the government, and the State Department went on the record with outdated information.

    I would ask for some evidence, but I doubt you'll find anything on a non-right wing site. How about this, if you can find a site that doesn't have an outlandish claim about the government, the Democrats or President Obama on its front page, and doesn't have half a dozen American flags fully saturating every visitor, then I'll take a look at it.

    You have to ask yourself why is he so intent on making sure the Countries that surround Israel are run by Islamic theocracies.
    This would an example of a claim that would instantly destroy the credibility of any source you provide.

    Could you provide a source/link? I'd be interested in reading what he had to say.

    Usually quotes refer to a specific instance of speech. I could find a dozen different people who said phony scandals and then IRS targeting conservative groups and Benghazi. As it turns out, the IRS was in fact also giving liberal groups extra scrutiny (I can't wait for the, "but CNN is a left-wing institution" out). As for Benghazi, perhaps there is some truth to that, though it's entirely different from what has been claimed thus far (with the possible exception of Glenn Beck, though I'm waiting for the link on that).

    I heard him say it. He said that he heard that there were weapons to be had after Khadafi fell and we were running guns to Syria through that "consulate" with the help of Turkey.

    For some reason that link didn't work, and when I googled the name of the video, it only came up on that site. I watched a different video, where he referenced the same theory, and I found this article.

    I suppose Glenn Beck may be right. The story CNN reported shows there was an operation in Benghazi and that the CIA is making sure to keep it classified, but honestly, I don't see how it matters. This is the CIA, we literally expect them to do this sort of thing. We don't need to know about this now, but it'll be nice to learn exactly what was going on in a few decades.

    On a side note, I don't think you can call this another Iran-Contra. They weren't buying weapons for anybody, and they weren't raising money for any program. If the above theory is correct, then they were just moving weapons from one place to another.
