CNN Reports CIA Personnel Threatened into Silence on Benghazi Attack

Posted by Steve Markowitz on August 5, 2013

CNN, a left of center cable news network, on August 1 released a story demonstrating that the Benghazi terrorist attack that killed four Americans including our ambassador is no phony scandal.

Since the Benghazi attack 11 months ago, the American people have yet to hear directly from survivors of the attack or from US operatives on the ground. We now know why.   CNN’s Jake Tapper reports that the Obama Administration is using threats against CIA operatives in efforts to keep them silent.  According to Tapper:

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.”

CNN’s report comes out just a few days after Pres. Obama and his mouthpiece Jay Carney have started the talking points of the so-called “phony scandals” in an effort to make the scandals go away.  It remains to be seen whether the President’s intimidation tactics will be successful or whether the cover-up will cause more political damage than the original scandal.

Barack Obama is looking more Nixonian by the day.
