<quoted text>Just keep banging your head against the wall and you still dont get it, only makes you more dumber.
You are still a dummy. The CIA base is, and was, referred to as the Annex in error. The building Amb. Stevens was in was a diplomatic consulate.
The second building attacked was an American consulate.
"The 'annexe' to the U.S. consulate in Benghazi which was attacked by militants last month was a CIA building, it has been revealed.
The intelligence base, which has previously been described only as a 'safe house', was the building which two Navy SEALs were defending when they died in the terrorist raid.
It was around a mile from the consulate where ambassador Chris Stevens and diplomat Sean Smith were killed on the night of September 11."
Nice try - still no cigar.
I know, Right Wing Wackos love to commit treason by"outing" CIA operations and personnel - but normal Americans tried to keep it covert - even if Issa and the RWW Gang persecute them for being responsible.
Those pesky facts :
WASHINGTON -- The pivotal role of the Central Intelligence Agency in the deadly attack in Benghazi, Libya, last month burst into the public spotlight late on Thursday.
A U.S. official familiar with the Benghazi intelligence, who spoke under the condition of anonymity to discuss sensitive matters, confirmed that the two former Navy SEALs who died in the assault, were contractors working for the agency.
.... his official memo counted 35 "U.S. government personnel," of whom only eight were State Department. Many of the rest were secretly with the CIA, the official confirmed.
... This was no accident. In fact, the compound served little routine diplomatic purpose, and was largely under the operational control of the CIA.
... During the October congressional hearing, Chaffetz had halted the testimony of a State Department official when she brought up the annex, out of concerns that her remarks might "deal with sources and methods that would be totally inappropriate in an open forum such as this."
... When secret agencies are involved, and especially when they are as pivotal as they were in Benghazi, public explanations can be treacherous, and officials will go out of their way to avoid exposing the agency's role, especially if the operations could be ongoing.
"The CIA can't admit their role because it compromises the cover of the facility, and that's the most important thing," said Bob Baer, who spent two decades as a field officer in the CIA. "You can never compromise cover."
... "State Department officials believed that security responsibility was set to be shouldered in part by CIA personnel in the city through a series of secret agreements that even some officials in Washington didn't know about," the Journal wrote.
The Journal's report placed the blame for many of the missteps in Benghazi specifically on CIA director David Petraeus, who was described as aloof in the weeks after that episode.
... the delay in publicly identifying Woods and Doherty was a consequence of the unique sensitivity of determining whether they would be outed as CIA agents, or if the State Department would claim the two as theirs.
