CONFIRMED: US Was Holding Prisoners at Benghazi Annex (Video)

Jennifer Griffin at FOX News today confirmed that the US was holding prisoners at the Benghazi annex near the consulate compound. US agents handed three prisoners over to Libyan authorities on their way out of the city on September 12. The prisoners may have been held in the compound for several days.

Paula Broadwell leaked information on the US annex prisoners in a speech she gave at Denver University in October.

Barack Obama reportedly ended the CIA secret prisons his first year in office.
Guess not?

The CIA denied the claims that the US was holding Libyan militants at the annex.

    Considering Obama and UN/NATO sided with Al-Qaida / Muslim Murderhood – who could they have been holding?

    This is why you don’t get involved in countries that have no compelling US interest nor national security issue.

    Dohhhhhhhh who is lying. Who is is covering up? Don’t forget fast and furious too. Delay Obama agenda for 4 years and impeach as soon as possible.

    …and what was HRH Obama planning to do with these prisoners? Gitmo? Details please.

  • Granny

    If the compound was over-run, where did “US agents” get three prisoners to hand over?

    What a tangled web we weave.

    Sounds like Petraeus’ resignation wasn’t so much because of the affair (in and of itself). Rather his resignation came as a result of her loose lips (and various other parts) having revealed the secret prison info with the potential to sink this administrations ship. The irony of CIA incompetence triggering top/down CYA would be amusing were it not so deadly.

  • Sam Stone

    Now we need to investigate Anthony Weiners wife and her Muslim Brotherhood connections.

    Bachmann was right.

    OK, so what were they doing with detainees and lax security?
    This story gets better and better.
    Popcorn please.

    Petraeus will be this generation’s Oliver North. Every political office needs a patsy.

    I seriously don’t care what happens anymore. I gave up on Nov 7 2012.

    It’s odd (or maybe not) that Fox is pushing this story when it hurts Republicans.

    The truth is the truth, and it shouldn’t matter who it hurts. The media used to be a little more inclined to report the truth, until they realized “Why hurt our side, when we don’t have to? We can just keep it to ourselves”

    Jennifer Griffin and Catherine Heriage (sp) have both been reporting on the Bengazi massacre since the beginning. I am guessing that it was one of them that reported back in Oct. that 3 Libyan attackers were captured the night of the attack. They were released that night. The US did not know what happened to the 3 that were released.

    It is my guess that the guy taking claim for killing the Ambassador, who is now in Egypt, was one of those captured, and then released.

    I guess you could technically say the three were being held as prisoners, for a few hours, but that in no way means the annex was a prison operating in secret as it seems is being portrayed.
