Why were 22 CIA agents at Benghazi consulate the night Stevens was killed?

By United Press International August 2, 2013 12:27 pm

Sources told CNN more than 20 CIA agents were at or near the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, when Ambassador Chris Stevens was killed.

One source said the agency has been subjecting operatives working in Libya to frequent polygraph tests to make sure they are not leaking information about Benghazi, the cable news channel reported Thursday.

Three other U.S. citizens were killed with Stevens in the attack on the consulate on Sept. 11, 2012. The attack became a political football with Republicans accusing President Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton of a coverup.

Sources told CNN the CIA used an annex to the consulate as its local headquarters and at least 22 people were there the night of the attack. One source told CNN a total of 35 people were at the consulate and the annex with seven of them wounded.

Robert Baer, a former CIA agent who serves as a CNN analyst, said under normal circumstances the agency only puts its employees through polygraph tests every three or four years.

"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 bimonthly," Baer said.

They are also being forced by the obama administration to sign non disclosure forms so they can't testify as to what they were doing or what they saw.

Obama has clamped down on any information that might lead us to the truth, something he is very afraid of.

Wow, The CIA is keeping secrets? Outrageous. What I find interesting is why someone that is sworn to secrecy anyway would have to sign a nondisclosure form.

Just because Congress has oversight authority over the CIA is no reason to tell the truth about Bengazhi.

Since it is the CIA, you'll find that out on a need to know basis.

This doesn't make you wonder? If they had all these people there, did they have guns? Why didn't they join the fight and help to save the ambassador or at least save the Navy Seals who got killed? I could care less WHY they were there. I just want to know why they didn't get involved in the fight. Something is amiss, especially since the CIA is threatening the leaders of the group and their families.

No...

When actual American deaths occur, the public has not a need, but a RIGHT to know...

What's worse is that we didn't even know this aspect until almost eleven months afterward...

Are your really saying anytime an American get killed the American people have a RIGHT to know the details? You guys are actiing like the CIA just started keeping secrets when Obama got elected. Or maybe that is just when it started bothering you.

I am saying when our ambassador and 3 other diplomatic personnel are killed by Libyan terrorists we have a right to find out the relevant facts even if they expose the President's indifference.

I can wonder all I want yes but sounds like a covert op and isn't that what some wondered all along? I'm not going to find out till they want me too.
