CNN has released yet another bombshell in the ongoing Benghazi scandal, and it is sure to shock those who haven’t been paying attention. Prepare for a window into the “transparent” Obama administration.
According to CNN’s Jake Tapper, the Obama administration is threatening CIA operatives who were on the ground during the deadly terrorist attack in Benghazi to keep them silent:
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.
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.”
This should quell all naysaying that Benghazi is a “phony scandal” and “there is no cover-up.” Possible links to the Benghazi story that the Obama administration might want to cover-up are the arms shipments to al Qaeda-affiliated terrorists in the February 17th Martyr’s Brigade and potential weapons smuggling to al Qaeda-connected rebels in Syria through the Turkish consul.
The CIA operatives’ story is similar to that given by the number two diplomat in Benghazi, Libya — Gregory Hicks. Under oath, Hicks testified that he was told by the State Department not to discuss Benghazi with House Republicans and then was demoted when he did.
It came out earlier this week that diplomatic security specialist David Ubben attempted to rescue Sean Smith before he was killed and then came to the aid of SEALs Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty while they were under siege. Mortar fire eventually killed Woods and Doherty, and Ubben was injured and left for 20 hours on a Benghazi rooftop.
In mid-July, Rep. Frank Wolf announced that Benghazi survivors were being silenced by the Obama administration, and are suspected of asking or forcing them to sign Non-Disclosure Agreements. Recently, a group of 1,000 special operations veterans unrolled a 60-foot petition to get to the bottom of what happened in Benghazi and why the Obama administration is covering it up.
