What are they trying to hide in Benghazi attack?

New exclusive information has just been reveled about what is allegedly happening at the CIA, in the wake of the Benghazi attack on Sept. 11, 2012.

Four Americans, including Ambassador Christopher Stevens, were killed in the assault by armed terrorists in Libya.

Sources now have revealed that actually dozens of people working for the CIA were on the ground that night, and that the CIA is going to great lengths to make sure whatever it was doing, remains a secret.

The CIA is involved in what one source calls an unprecedented attempt to keep Benghazi secrets from ever leaking out. Also Since last January, some CIA operatives involved in the agency’s missions in Libya, have been subjected to frequent, polygraph examinations.

The goal of the questioning, according to sources, is to find out if anyone is talking to Congress or the main stream news media. It is also now being described as pure intimidation, with the threat that any unauthorized CIA employee who leaks information could face the end of their career.

Among the many secrets still yet to be told about the Benghazi mission, is just how many Americans were there the night of the attack.

A many as 35 agents might have been on the ground, with as many as seven wounded. The lack of information and pressure to silence CIA operatives is disturbing to U.S. Rep. Frank Wolf, whose district includes CIA headquarters in Langley, Va.

Wolf has repeatedly gone to the House floor, asking for a select committee to be set-up, a Watergate-style probe involving several intelligence committee investigators assigned to get to the bottom of the failures that took place in Benghazi, and find out just what the State Department and CIA were doing there.

Lawmakers also want to about know the weapons in Libya, and what happened to them.The CIA would not comment on whether it was involved in the transfer of any weapons

It is high time that it will be revealed just what the Obama administration and the State Department is trying to cover up on Benghazi gate
