NOW!! Spy-Proof Communications is Here from Before It’s News
(Before It’s News)
Up to 35 CIA operatives were working in the Libyan city during the attack last September on the US consulate, resulting in the then reported death of Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans, according to CNN that now says more Americans were killled then, but those deaths were covered up.
Congressional suspicions that the United States withheld details of its activities in Benghazi prompted some members of Congress to press for an investigation.
More than 150 Republican members of Congress have signed an investigation request. This week, eight Republicans sent a letter to new FBI head James Comey, asking that he brief Congress on the alleged scandal within 30 days.
A CIA team was secretly working near the consulate on a project to supply missiles from Libyan armouries to Syrian rebels, according to CNN.
“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.”
More Americans were hurt in the Benghazi assault than previously reported. Only the losses suffered by the State Department were reported to Congress.
The CIA was so determined to keep its arms-smuggling operation a secret, it intimidated its operatives by running frequent polygraph tests on them.
CNN published the following in its exclusive report:
“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.”
“You don’t jeopardize yourself, you jeopardize your family as well,” said one insider.
“You have no idea the amount of pressure being brought to bear on anyone with knowledge of this operation,” another said.
“Agency employees typically are polygraphed every three to four years. Never more than that,” former CIA operative and CNN analyst Robert Baer said.
Although the CIA running arms to terrorists is no surprise to people familiar with the agency’s standard operating procedures, the leak by CNN is remarkable at a time when exposing U.S. high-level crimes, in the best interest of humanity, results in torture, life imprisonment or targeted killings, as the world is witnessing in the cases of Bradley Manning and award-winning journalist, the late Michael Hastings.
