August 1, 2013

Events more than half a century ago on the Korean Peninsula are merely the stuff of history books for most Americans....

Speculation on Capitol Hill has included the possibility the U.S. agencies operating in Benghazi were secretly helping to move surface-to-air missiles out of Libya, through Turkey, and into the hands of Syrian rebels.

It is clear that two U.S. agencies were operating in Benghazi, one was the State Department, and the other was the CIA.

The State Department told CNN in an e-mail that it was only helping the new Libyan government destroy weapons deemed "damaged, aged or too unsafe retain," and that it was not involved in any transfer of weapons to other countries.

But the State Department also clearly told CNN, they "can't speak for any other agencies."

The CIA would not comment on whether it was involved in the transfer of any weapons.

DaveGibson, Oh thank you for reading the article and pointing out the obvious. It was a concern of mine that I might not "get it" and was hoping you or RS could help me out! I do realize that if you do not agree then it must be pure speculation, as no one can have a reasonable thought that isn't approved by you guys!

If the government want it quiet and you have something to say... would you tell everyone your name? If Obama wanted to clear up some of these phony scandals why not release the information that would do just that? Where are the survivors? They only cover up what would make them look bad but that however is not possible. How do you cover up 5 years of worthless legislation and failures?

Ron and Dave are on to something. Most stories if not all stories with unnamed sources are pure BS. Imagine that.

It matters to me that four people are dead and we were promised that those who committed this atrocity would pay for their deeds.

It's the Leader's policy that this is for opinion only, we cannot post web pages here.

We should remember all who have fought, and those that are serving in the greatest military in the world. Our troopers are the best. Remember to thank one today.

TOT - what does this have to do with the Korean War?

However, I did go to CNN and read the article. You realize this isn't CNN News, right? It's a blog called the Lead with Jake Tapper. It's an opinion article not supported by facts which is why it's not on the news page. But even if everything there was true, my feeling is "so what?". So there were 35 CIA employees working in Benghazi helping Libya destroy weapons. And?

If the sources are ever identified and if facts (not speculation) brought forth indicating wrong doing, then it's news. Until then, it's no more newsworthy than a Rush Limbaugh show.

Remember when Obama said "When I am elected the world will love the USA again"?

The United States is closing all of its embassies Sunday in the Middle East and parts of Asia because of a possible al-Qaeda-related threat to diplomatic posts worldwide, American officials told NBC News on Thursday.

The U.S. has been "apprised of information that out of an abundance of caution and care for our employees and others who may be visiting our installations, that indicates we should institute these precautionary steps," said State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf.

TOT, You do not know who the CNN sources are and you do not know who the source is from deep inside the CIA is. So I can only take your post as BS unless you can post the sources. So you posts are nothing more than crap.

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.

In exclusive communications obtained by CNN, one insider writes, "You don't jeopardize yourself, you jeopardize your family as well."

Another says, "You have no idea the amount of pressure being brought to bear on anyone with knowledge of this operation."

"Agency employees typically are polygraphed every three to four years. Never more than that," said former CIA operative and CNN analyst Robert Baer.

In other words, the rate of the kind of polygraphs alleged by s

CNN has uncovered exclusive new information about what is allegedly happening at the CIA, in the wake of the deadly Benghazi terror attack.

Four Americans, including Ambassador Christopher Stevens, were killed in the assault by armed militants last September 11 in eastern Libya.

Sources now tell CNN dozens of people working for the CIA were on the ground that night, and that the agency is going to great lengths to make sure whatever it was doing, remains a secret.

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.

Another example of the failure in the Obama administration ... wait, what were we talking about? On a more serious note ... the Korean War Memorial in DC is quite an awesome sight to behold. A bit eery too.
