Existence of Secret CIA Prison Divulged by Petraeus Mistress?

I know, I know. The CIA would never do anything in defiance of US law. And even if they did, polls consistently show that most Americans are okay with that, as long as the illegal activity is in support of national security. Ends justify means, as we all know. Heck, a majority of Americans would apparently submit to anal cavity searches from the TSA, according to a new poll commissioned by Infowars.com. So maintaining a few outlaw prisons here and there, to house Bad Guys only, that's not really a big deal. I get it. Don't shoot the messenger.

Aaron Klein reports that the mistress of General Petraeus, Paula Broadwell, may have let slip a tantalizing piece of information that was supposed to remain secret. Klein writes:

During a question and answer session, Broadwell was asked about the September 11 attacks against the U.S. mission in Benghazi.

She stated: “Now I don’t know if a lot of you heard this, but the CIA annex had actually had taken a couple of Libya militia members prisoner. And they think that the attack on the consulate was an effort to try to get these prisoners back. So that’s still being vetted.”

The existence of a U.S. prison or CIA detention center in Benghazi would be a new development in the debate surrounding the attacks there.  The information does not appear to be publicly known.

A spokesperson for the CIA responded to the Daily Beast“The CIA has not had detention authority since January 2009, when Executive Order 13491 was issued. Any suggestion that the Agency is still in the detention business is uninformed and baseless.”

Because, you know, the CIA has a long history of obeying things like Executive Orders to the letter...uh huh. That sudden thirst for Kool Aid you feel is quite normal. Hey, if the impotent CIA would like to detain people, but can't because of their scrupulous law-keeping, I hear FEMA may have some empty spaces just waiting for occupants. Maybe they could be persuaded to rent them out.

I'm not a betting man, but my guess is that this Petraeus thing, though it will be mostly ignored in the MSM and will come to nothing, will live forever on the internet, or until the "guvmmint" shuts that down. The Princeton job the General was offered in consequence of his resignation was likely the best of a couple of options, which may have included deals like sudden heart-attack or suicide in a DC park someplace.

I understand there are a lot of folks who think it's unpatriotic to hold the Feds in anything other than worshipful esteem. If that's you,  hey, enjoy your life; and, please say hello for me to the unicorns where you live. I tend to hold the opposite view, which comes directly from the Bible and takes seriously the fallen nature of mankind.

    The Bengahzi incident isn't about CIA prisoners...if that were the case they would have raided the CIA annex first...or their intent at he consulate would have been to take their own prisoners...the Bengahzi incident was a cover up for an incident that happened a week before...here's what REALLY happened...

    Clinton played and still speaks at political conventions. Distractions to benefit Obama's falure in Lybia. Double standards, ya think? And yeah - she's hot.

    Me thinks a non-com would be in Levanworth by now for violating U.C.M.J..

    The usual lack of morals, ethics and honesty reign supreme any more in America, or in other words, anything goes unless you get caught. With Obama, even slicker than Bill Clinton, executive orders will continue to flow in large numbers to cove his rear! So, people, what are we going to do to get rid of this communistic government? Accept it or do something to remove it so America can return to its roots!

    Yeah, and the CIA doesn't operate in the US either, does it??? Right, and keep on holding your breath and believing as they haul you off to a FEMA camp!!!!!

    I certainly don't hold any of them in worshipful esteem, they are human beings, (at least that's what they tell us) they are prone to errors, cheating, lying and certainly are nothing to be looked up to. They are you and I (on steroids) and should be dealth with accordingly. They believe they are above the law, we know better. Until they quit playing by their rules (not ours) nothing will ever change. They have no ethics, and their way of dealing with it is joke, ethic charges are serious and should be dealth with back home by the people, not their peers.

    For those that think America doesn't cover anything up, is always looking out for the underdog, is always trying to do the right thing, never does anything that we would consider illegal, immoral or unethical wake up.

    Would that be the same "secret" that king-kenya allowed FOUR AMERICANS to be murdered for? That "secret"? This is a commu-crat administration: The bar is buried DEEP beneath the lowest cesspool as far as character and honor go. We allowed this. Now sit back and enjoy the ride to destruction. Maybe we'll get another "blue dress" episode to entertain the "Voice" worshipers.

    This is proof that the bedroom talk between man and woman does happen and that secrets can be divulged along with securities. Mrs. Broadwell should never have known about the secret prison and she showed a serious lack of discretion when divulging this information in a public speech without being vetted by the government first. So, my question is, where does Mrs. Broadwell's allegiances lie? Is American security first on her mind or is it something else?

    People, ask yourselves, what was Benghazi all about? Why did Obama sit in the Situation Room in the White House and watch for 7 hours while Ambassador Stevens was attack dragged down the streets and murdered by Al Qaeda (Muslim Brotherhood)?? The attack and Murder of Ambassador Stevens was planned with the help of the White House in advance of the Anniversery of 911. "The Video" that no one seen was manipulated and planted "online" by the White House. Ambassador Stevens refused to allow the Muslim Brotherhood into the Libyan Government, which was a total embarrassment to Obama and Hillary since they were supporting the murdering bastards in Egypt. How could the Muslim Brotherhood be wonderful leaders in Egypt and Murdering Mobs in Libya??? Awkward.
    Obama and Hillary played on Ambassador Stevens grave concerns for Security especially with the anniversery of 911 approaching. Obama systematically took away Stevens security and the rest was just academic. Especially, with all the intel provided the Muslim Brotherhood by the White House and State Department Spys, Valarie Jarrett and Huma Weiner.
    There is no doubt that the Extreme Counterinsurgency Forces could have saved Ambassador Stevens, Sean Smith, Ty Woods, and Glenn Doherty. Obama gave no orders. Barack Hussein Obama LIED, LIED, LIED and Americans Died.
    Now, the American Generals who dare question Obama are being hunted down and eliminated. One by one.

    I do not trust a woman who was "planted" to "compromise" a General. She was successful. Destruction from within. Just like the Obama Voter Fraud. http://www.scytl.com "we count your votes, so your votes don't count". Check out this Socialist Global One Government Voter Sofware Company in Barcelona, Spain and SEE WHO IS THEIR CUSTOMERS. HINT: you are a customer of theirs.

    It is unfortunate that what could really have some meaning to it becomes sensationalism and conspiracy to promote a book filled with fear and suspicion. People just love to create big stories from crumbs of information that are sensational and awe driven. The authors skepticism and self adoration should be enough to cause true believers to pause, i.e. "I tend to hold the opposite view, which comes directly from the Bible and takes seriously the fallen nature of mankind." Maybe a quick read of 1 Peter 2:13 might bring some sort of humility like "think of others better than yourself". 1 Pet. 2:13-15 "Be subject for the Lord's sake to every human institution...for this is the will of God, that by doing good you should put to silence the ignorance of foolish people." Let your words be salty not synical and sarcastic Mr. Runyan.

      It seems that your interested in what's written in Scripture, so don't you NOW find it believeable that ONLY 144,000 Israelies from the tribe of Joseph survive, including Judah, although Dan(Irish) are replaced by Joseph as being protected from DEATH during these last days(Rev. chapter7). It's also is interesting that although it takes the two-witnesses 3 1/2 years to punish u.s.(Rev. chapter 11), it ONLY takes 1 HOUR to DESTROY U.S. by OUR JEWISH, NOT GREEK, HEBREW-INSPIRED SAVIOR "YAHSHUA," meaning in HEBREW: "YAHWEH(YHWH) MEANS SALVATION" TO DESTROY BABYLON/ISLAM UPON HIS RETURN? Just saying...It either is or it isn't and it is...

      Wow! I have spent 32 years studying eschatology and your assumptions on the tribes of Isreal once again cause me to pause at where you are getting your "insight". Look, for years people have been trying to interpret prophetical texts and ultimately failing the test of a "prophet" and making a mockery of Christ and His Church. False prophecies and false interpretations have caused more damage to the Body of Christ than any unbeliever could ever have done. Paul warns Timothy to beware of "false teachers" that would come into the church and lead many astray (2 Tim. 4). This also eludes to teaching "myths" which is what your speculations border on because of no scriptural support. We would be better served if we share the gospel of salvation and sound doctrine and avoid foolish speculations that set people at odds with one another and create strife, confusion and uncertainty rather than peace, unity, and a pursuit of holiness and godliness in a lost world. Let's start with the sermon on the mount (Matt. 5-7) and if time in this life permits...dig deep into Matt. 24, Luke 21, Mark 13 for our eschatological understanding so we can interpret Revelation, 1 Thes. 4-5, 2 Thes. 2, 1 Cor. 15, and the prophets of old (Daniel, Isaiah, Elijah, etc...).
