What the hell is going on?

David Petraeus' mistress, Paula Broadwell, appears to have revealed in a recent speech that the CIA annex in Benghazi held two militia prisoners.

Is this something she should have known? And why, given the completely inadequate security of the place, would prisoners have been held in Benghazi?

Yeah, I can see why the Obama administration would want to keep all this under wraps until after the election.

Oh, and Hillary won't be testifying on Benghazi next week because of a "scheduling conflict".

I thought Broadwell was some sort of counterintell/terrorist policy wonk. And she never heard of OPSEC? Thinking with her gonads would be an improvement at this point.

I'm beginning to believe that Petraeus's resignation was pre-emptive damage control, given what that article says. If he's out, it takes extra effort to punish him, and maybe Obama isn't interested in that sort of publicity.

I suppose it's better to be known for banging a crazy woman than allowing unauthorized people access (whether deliberately or through neglect) to what can best be described as at least highly sensitive information.

No problem Hillary, feel sure your very good friend Julia would be more than happy to change things for you, so you can testify. Right Julia?

Ah that's right you have questions of your own to answer re the AWU fraud and scandal involving your ex lover Bruce Wilson. That's why you keep ticking off overseas.

That's a good read, Spiny. Dire, indeed, but an accurate assessment that we all need.

And need badly.

CIA held captives in a secret overseas location? Must have been leftovers from the evil Bush administration.

Is "CIA Annex" the new term for dungeon? Barry wouldn't have dungeons, would he? Then again, he does like to watch.

Deborah Leigh said...Forgot to point out that all this and the devastation from Sandy has caused Barry to take up the clubs AGAIN! Somebody tell Barry that isn't the big stick Teddy Roosevelt was talking about.

But Deborah, Barry is incapable of handling anything but a little stick.
