Petraeus Mistress Suggests Benghazi Attack Was Aimed At Secret CIA Prison
2012 11 14

By Tony Lee | Breitbart.com

Former CIA Director Gen. David Petraeus may have told his alleged mistress Paula Broadwell what really happened in Benghazi, Libya on September 11, 2012 when terrorists murdered U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans. Broadwell, whose alleged affair with Petraeus forced him to resign last Friday, revealed during an October 26 speech at the University of Denver that Libyan terrorists may have attacked the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi on September 11, 2012 in order to take back Libyan militia members the CIA Annex had taken prisoner.

Furthermore, Broadwell confirmed that the CIA Annex in Libya had requested reinforcements and could have "reinforced the consulate and the CIA annex that were under attack." Broadwell also said Petraeus and administration officials knew within 24 hours the possible motives behind the terrorist attacks.

In January of 2009, the Obama administration ordered secret interrogation camps abroad to be closed. Broadwell’s comments about the CIA Annex having captured Libyan militia members may reveal some of these overseas prisons may still be operational.




"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 effort to try get these prisoners back, so that’s still being vetted," Broadwell said during the question-and-answer session of her presentation when an audience member asked her to comment on Libya.

Broadwell, who was speaking at her alma mater about her biography of Petraeus, confirmed the Fox News report (Broadwell said Jennifer Griffin’s report had "insightful information") that came out on the day of her speech that said the Obama administration denied Americans on the ground in Libya the security and help they requested, telling NAVY Seals in Libya who wanted to help U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans who were eventually murdered to "stand down."

"The facts that came out today is that the ground forces there at the CIA annex, which is different from the consulate, were requesting reinforcements," Broadwell said. "They were requesting the -- it’s called the CINC’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 that were under attack. "

Broadwell said the "challenging thing" for Petraeus was, as Director of the CIA, he was "not allowed to communicate with the press."

"So he’s known all of this -- they had correspondence with the CIA station chief in Libya, within 24 hours they kind of knew what was happening," Broadwell said.
