    Told you so!

    It was a CIA Operation

    Just being reported , several of the SEALS at Benghazi were actually contractors working for the CIA and several news outlets were aware of this. The information was embargoed, presumably to allow the CIA time to clear out any assets and salvage what information it could from the operation.

    Short story is THAT is why the administration was less that forthcoming and willing to allow people to think it was just an angry mob. This was apparently a group of militants who know EXACTLY what they were after when the attacked the Consulate. After the attack there were still sensitive assets (including CIA operatives) still on the ground in Libya, and the administration wanted more time to assess the situation.

    Doherty and Woods were in Libya on contract with the CIA. They say they omitted mention of the 2 former SEALs' CIA connection so that other lives wouldn't be endangered. Thus the "silence" from the administration (gasp! they were actually trying to protect other people!!)

    Only seven of the 30 people evacuated were with the State Department. Thus the rest were CIA and primarily under the direction and supervision of the CIA, not State.

    Now it is clear the Seals killed that night were not part of any security detail. It was an attack on an intelligence gathering installation rather than an embassy which paints a vastly different picture.

    If the repub syncopants can't realize that the administration was delaying the full story of what happened to protect people and assets still there and in other places, you are sadder people than I thought you were. That you can't acknowledge or understand that is no surprise, however.
