So much for the left’s praise of Obama banning so-called ‘secret prisons’. There appears to have been one operating in Benghazi:
“The fact that came out today [in a report by Fox News Channel] is that the ground forces there at the CIA annex, which is different from the consulate, were requesting reinforcements.
“They were requesting the–it’s called the C-in-C’s [Commander in Chief’s] In Extremis Force–a group of Delta Force operators, our very, most talented guys we have in the military. They could have come and reinforced the consulate and the CIA annex. 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 attempt to get these prisoners back. It’s still being vetted.
That’s from a speech by Paula Broadwell the lover of General David Petraeus quoted by James Taranto. I think it’s time both Broadwell and Petraeus were subpoenaed to testify. His resignation over the affair does not exempt him from giving testimony.
Although the media is using the news of their affair as another bit of Squirrel! reporting to distract from Obama’s 9/11.
