CNN: Benghazi Bombshell?

In a spontaneous act of actual journalism, CNN’s Drew Griffin is reporting that the events of September 11, 2012, at the US consulate in Benghazi, Libya, may not be so “phony” after all.

The highlights of the report include:

  • A number of CIA agents had been in Benghazi that night, adding the CIA to the State Department as the second agency there as events unfolded.
  • Some of those agents have been subjected to relentless (and rare) polygraph tests and both subtle and overt threats about potential leaks.
  • Dovetailing that is the abrupt silence following the initial willingness for certain sources to come forward.
  • There may have been up to 35 people at the consulate during the attack, but the administration has still not made that clear.

If true, this changes our whole view of the attacks and the lengths to which the Obama Administration went to cover up what happened or obstruct further investigation.

A running theory which I subscribe to is that Benghazi was a covert operation to funnel American weapons out of Libya to the Syrian rebels that went horribly wrong — people died and key members of the administration (ahem, Hillary) participated in a cover-up.  Since it was covert, there was probably a standing order that help would NOT come because the operation was not to be on the books. In a weird way in my head, all of the old Benghazi reports and the Obama Administration’s attempts to cover it up, as well as the new revelations seem to fit that story pretty well.

In the meantime, this “phony” scandal persists.

UPDATE:  Representative Trey Gowdy (R) has added another interesting new piece to this puzzle.
