    CIA moved swiftly to scrub, abandon Libya facility after attack, source says​


    By Catherine Herridge
    December 05, 2012

    Within eight hours of the initial attack on the United States' diplomatic facility in Benghazi, Libya, the CIA decided to scrub and abandon rather than protect its annex, a military intelligence source told Fox News.

    “The defensive posture was no longer sustainable," the source told Fox News, revealing for the first time how quickly the CIA chose to secure classified material and close down the facility after it took indirect fire from two mortars at about 5:15 a.m. local time Sept. 12.

    The adjoining U.S. consulate, by contrast, has never been secured, even three months after the attack.

    The process to sanitize the CIA site began on Sept. 11 after the consulate was attacked around 9:35 p.m. local time. The initial stages of the agency’s proscribed evacuation plan kicked in as a precautionary step.

    Given the CIA Annex was designated a high-threat posting by the agency and described to Fox News as having an “expeditionary” feel, there was not a lot of classified material to dispose of. Classified communications equipment was also near minimum.

    Within two and a half hours of the decision by the CIA chief of base, the agency’s point person in Benghazi, the annex was cleared of all classified material and equipment. Both CIA Director David Petraeus and Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, who oversees the nation’s 16 intelligence agencies, were notified of the decision, which was made on the ground in Libya and not directed by Washington.

    Fox News has previously reported, based on conversations with current and former intelligence officials, that there is significant evidence the terrorist attack in Benghazi was designed to flush out any remaining Western influence in eastern Libya, and specifically the growing CIA presence.

    Is that because they print the truth? Surely the CIA was up to no good in Libya. Obama sent them there to do what? Capture terrorists and interrogate them "Rendition Style"? Trans-ship arms to Syria?
    The Lame Stream Media is doing all they can to bury the subject. Is that why Fox news is bad news to you? How many more people do you expect to die because of Maobama?

    As Maobama keeps telling us, "Words, Just words".

    I knew he had no intentions of doing any such thing but ironic how his Obamatrons never bring that up.

    LOL. The truth and Fox are like oil and water. It's yellow journalism at it's worst.

    Who was the source for that story?

    Here's what my un-named source said about the matter.

    The consulate and annex were a clearing house for CIA supplied surface to air missiles bound for the rebels in Syria. Syria and more importantly Iran, found out about it and sent in a hit team to attack and try and Kill our Embassador. The weapons made it to the rebels but sadly the assault was successful in killing Embassador Stevens.

    How long did it take President Bush to get Bin Laden again?
