CNN has uncovered exclusive new information about what is allegedly happening at the CIA, in the wake of the deadly Benghazi terror attack.

Four Americans, including Ambassador Christopher Stevens, were killed in the assault by armed militants last September 11 in eastern Libya.

Sources now tell CNN dozens of people working for the CIA were on the ground that night, and that the agency is going to great lengths to make sure whatever it was doing, remains a secret.

CNN has learned the CIA is involved in what one source calls an unprecedented attempt to keep the spy agency's Benghazi secrets from ever leaking out.

Since January, some CIA operatives involved in the agency's missions in Libya, have been subjected to frequent, even monthly polygraph examinations, according to a source with deep inside knowledge of the agency's workings.

The goal of the questioning, according to sources, is to find out if anyone is talking to the media or Congress.

It is being described as pure intimidation, with the threat that any unauthorized CIA employee who leaks information could face the end of his or her career.

In exclusive communications obtained by CNN, one insider writes, "You don't jeopardize yourself, you jeopardize your family as well."

Another says, "You have no idea the amount of pressure being brought to bear on anyone with knowledge of this operation."

"Agency employees typically are polygraphed every three to four years. Never more than that," said former CIA operative and CNN analyst Robert Baer.

In other words, the rate of the kind of polygraphs alleged by sources is rare.

"If somebody is being polygraphed every month, or every two months it's called an issue polygraph, and that means that the polygraph division suspects something, or they're looking for something, or they're on a fishing expedition. But it's absolutely not routine at all to be polygraphed monthly, or bi-monthly," said Baer.

Among the many secrets still yet to be told about the Benghazi mission, is just how many Americans were there the night of the attack.

A source now tells CNN that number was 35, with as many as seven wounded, some seriously.

While it is still not known how many of them were CIA, a source tells CNN that 21 Americans were working in the building known as the annex, believed to be run by the agency.

It's Jake Tapper, though a lib, probably one of the few legit journalists out there along with Sheryl Atkisson.

Funny you bring up CNN and whether or not its focus will be news in the future:

Is CNN Considering a Scripted Program on McVeigh and ‘Gun Show Culture’?

Wednesday on Sirius XM radio’s Ron and Fez Show, screenwriter Paul Schrader (“Taxi Driver,”“Raging Bull,” and many others) was promoting his new movie,“The Canyons,”when talk shifted to what else Schrader was working on. He broke the news that he’s in negotiations with CNN to produce a fiction series based on Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh and “the gun show culture.”

“I’m in kind of a negotiation with CNN to do a limited series,” he said.“They’re thinking of moving over to fiction. And I proposed that we do something on Tim McVeigh and the gun show culture.'

They're both on the White House enemies list. Atkisson's computers have been hacked several times and Tapper is loathed by Obama and Jay Carney.

Given the ratings of late for MSDNC, I believe you are correct.

CCN may be making a decision that is based on economics rather than their politics.

This story was just on Channel 6 during the local news. So much for the left calling it a "non-story" and a "distraction."

We've seen the forum left deny that people quoted in links actually said what they said.

"Phony scandals" indeed

ISSA: HIDING BENGHAZI SURVIVORS 'OBSTRUCTION,''ILLEGAL'

Congressman Darrell Issa:“We are aware that there is a pattern of saying you must coordinate with their bosses before talking to Congress. Of course, that’s not consistent with the law and it leads to a general belief that you shouldn’t talk to Congress. And that happens to be obstruction. It’s illegal under the statutes.“

It is amazing to see you wingnuts go crazy over something that the CIA has been doing since its conception through every administration. I said from the beginning that the silence over Benghazi was because the CIA was probably using that diplomatic outpost as some sort of base of operations. Do you think it is helpful to national security for the details of a CIA operation like that to be made public knowledge? You don't care because your political butthurt is more important to you than national interests.

You dirt bags tried to bring Reagan down over Iran-Contra. This is even worse...Obama is running weapons to Al-Qaeda. But naturally you hypocrites are fine with that.
Why do you spit in the graves of those murdered on 9/11?
