Benghazi Bombshell Report: Dozens on the Ground Working for CIA When Four Americans Killed

August 2, 2013 Updated: July 18, 2015

A bombshell report about Benghazi, Libya, from CNN asserts that there’s a lot more to what happened last September when four Americans were killed.

Sources tell the media outlet that dozens of people working for the CIA were on the ground on September 11, when the attacks took place.

Since January 2013, many of these operatives involved in missions in Libya have had to take frequent, sometimes monthly, polygraph tests, to find out if anyone is talking about the operation to any media outlets or Congress.

Any unauthorized leaks could lead to the end of the leaker’s career.

 “You don’t jeopardize yourself, you jeopardize your family as well,” said one person involved with what’s going on in some type of communication, according to CNN.  “You have no idea the amount of pressure being brought to bear on anyone with knowledge of this operation.”

The CIA operatives were working in a building known as the annex.

The alleged cover-up of what’s going on there disturbs U.S. Rep. Frank Wolf, whose district includes CIA’s headquarters in Langley, Virginia. 

“I think it is a form of a cover-up, and I think it’s an attempt to push it under the rug, and I think the American people are feeling the same way,” said the Republican. “We should have the people who were on the scene come in, testify under oath, do it publicly, and lay it out. And there really isn’t any national security issue involved with regards to that.”
