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

  • Happy Easter

    For the world’s more than 2 billion Christians, Easter is the day that defines their faith.
    The exact date of Christ’s resurrection is unknown, and even the precise locations of his crucifixion and burial are uncertain. This hasn’t stopped some people from saying they know the answer to these questions and others from trying to find out for themselves, or simply arguing about it.

  • One cannot compromise on God’s word

    A recent letter asked, “What is it about compromises that seem so undesirable?” Most of us are familiar with John 3:16, which says, “For God so loved the world that he gave his only son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.” The next verse goes on to say, “For God did not send his son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him”

  • Ballpark project a partnership, not a government handout

    To the Editor:
    Regarding Mark Nelson’s recent objection to county government assistance to exploring the placement of a minor league baseball team in the Cumberland region, I would answer that the project should be considered a partnership between private enterprise and government. The private support would come by way of donations collected from local citizens, currently banked through the Dapper Dan Club.
