Wow, this seems a bit "twisted" to me, and the only thing new in it is the shifting of the possibility of Stevens being associated with an ongoing
CIA op while serving under the guise as an Ambassador..
Reminded me of a couple of older pieces... which seem related to me..
real question about Benghazi: Was Chris Stevens a CIA agent?
What is the real question here? Judging from media coverage and the Congressional investigation, we might assume that the only matter to be resolved
is whether the Obama administration knew that a coordinated terrorist attack was underway, rather than a spontaneous demonstration against an
anti-Muslim film. According to this narrative, Obama could have been more proactive in responding to the attack and sent in military assistance to try
to save Stevens and his associates.
None of this would seem to be the stuff of a major scandal. The Obama administration may or may not have handled the situation properly. If they
didn’t and tried to cover up their incompetence, it would hardly be a new Watergate. The intensity of the controversy doesn’t jibe with its
Or is there another reason for a cover-up by the White House? Was Chris Stevens a CIA agent?
and this one from a bit further back, touching on an alleged rebel leader with CIA ties who was claiming to be snubbed during the Libyan uprising..
Libyan Rebel Leader with CIA Ties "Feels
PAUL JAY, SENIOR EDITOR, TRNN: Welcome to The Real News Network. I'm Paul Jay in Washington. In Libya, a man who lived not far from Washington,
Khalifa Hifter, was in Virginia for 24 years after leaving the Libyan army, where he'd been a commander. Of course, in Virginia he wasn't very far
from CIA headquarters. He's now back in Libya in Benghazi, playing some kind of role in the rebellion army, or I should say the army of the rebellion.
What is that role? Well, we're not entirely sure. But Shashank Bengali from the McClatchy Newspaper chain is in Benghazi, and he met with Hifter, and
he asked what was his role, and here's what he found out. Thanks for joining us. Shashank joins us from Benghazi.
SHASHANK BENGALI, MCCLATCHY NEWSPAPERI: My pleasure.
Full audio at the above link or you can read the transcript..
Taking this older information, and flash forwarding to today's whistleblower take on the scenario, it sure looks they are doing their best to distance
the CIA from any of this, which is kinda silly since the CIA operations were/are in Benghazi, and there was no Embassy in Benghazi.. not sure if it
was even a consulate myself, as that would explain the lack of adequate security, this was supposed to be a covert deal..
IIRC there were also some thoughts that Stevens was actually trying to secure as many of the shoulder fired weapons in order to transfer them to
rebels fighting in Syria..
If I had to take a guess, the CIA and the State Dept are knee deep in this fiasco, and subsequent coverup.
Grain of salt for me, this new story has too much TMZ on it for me to get too excited about.. YMMV
