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.


Interestingly, they aren't worried about people talking to the White House.

"“Why is this coming out now?” asked one official with access to terrorist threat data. “Is the administration trying to suck up news coverage with the embassy threats to distract attention from what the CIA was doing in Benghazi?"


Another distraction from any inquiry into Benghazi.  Just what the **CENSORED** are they hiding there.  Has to be huge.

Wonder if that will conflict with the anti-gun crusade?

We already knew about that, that's not worth this kind of coverup, wasn't even worth it before the election.

If they were ferrying over arms to Syria through there and the Tallyban found out then do you think they would want to divulge their hand so that it puts all at risk.....Just curious as to what the rest of the story is...OBD

Like with this claim perhaps OBD

DOJ, FBI admit they inflated claims about mortgage fraud crackdown last year
By Judson Berger
Published August 14, 2013
FoxNews.com

Aug. 12, 2013: Attorney General Eric Holder speaks to the American Bar Association Annual meeting. (AP)
The Justice Department and FBI have quietly acknowledged they grossly overstated the scope of a mortgage fraud crackdown, which the administration heralded with much fanfare a few weeks before last year's presidential election.

According to a memo circulated by the FBI and a correction posted online by the Justice Department, the number of defendants, the number of victims and the size of the losses are, in reality, a fraction of what officials claimed last October.

Attorney General Eric Holder and other law enforcement officials claimed in early October that the initiative charged 530 criminal defendants on behalf of 73,000 victims who suffered over $1 billion in losses. The so-called Distressed Homeowner Initiative, which targeted fraud schemes against distressed homeowners, was highlighted in a press release and press conference at the time.
Holder, talking to the cameras on Oct. 9, called it "a groundbreaking, year-long mortgage fraud enforcement effort."

The real numbers, it turns out, were far smaller. The feds now admit that the number of criminal defendants charged was more like 107, not 530. The number of victims was 17,185 -- still a large number, but roughtly one fourth the size of the original headcount. And the losses totaled $95 million -- not $1 billion, as originally claimed.

The DOJ and FBI had long been dogged by claims that their numbers were inflated. Bloomberg has been reporting since October that the cases cited by Holder included charges filed during the George W. Bush administration.

Bloomberg continued to press for clarification. The administration went dark on the issue until Friday, when the FBI acknowledged in a memo that it had conducted an "extensive review" and found problems. The original figures included defendants who "were the subject of other prosecutive actions," as well as defendants charged in cases that did not fall under the anti-mortgage fraud program in question, according to the memo, obtained by FoxNews.com.

"As a result, the public announcement overstated the number of defendants that should have been included as part of the Distressed Homeowner Initiative, as well as the corresponding estimated loss amount and number of victims," the memo said.

The Justice Department also updated its own October release -- as well as the transcript for remarks delivered by Holder -- with a correction, saying prior versions "inadvertently contained inaccurate numbers."

The administration is still getting hammered for the revisions, though. Bloomberg columnist Jonathan Weil called on Holder to apologize, and explain how this happened.
"He used a press conference with the cameras rolling to give out numbers that proved to be false -- and they appear to have been willfully false," Weil wrote. "He should be just as eager to hold another press conference to set the record straight, answer any questions about his apparent sleight of hand when it comes to financial-fraud metrics and apologize to the American people."

OBD - this could be the report you're waiting to read - I have no idea if the authors are right, nor that the sources are accurate.... we will see

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2390642/400-surface-air-missiles-STOLEN-Libya-Benghazi-attack-says-whistle-blowers-attorney.html

400 US surface-to-air missiles were 'STOLEN' from Libya during the Benghazi attack and are 'now in the hands of Al Qaeda', claims whistleblower
By DAVID MARTOSKO IN WASHINGTON
PUBLISHED: 16:53 EST, 12 August 2013 | UPDATED: 05:49 EST, 13 August 2013

As the Benghazi compound went up in flames, says Joe diGenova, 400 missiles capable of bringing down jetliners were 'stolen' from U.S. control, possibly at the nearby CIA annex
Four hundred American surface-to-air missiles were 'taken from Libya' during the terror attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, a former U.S. Attorney who represents whistleblowers claimed on Monday.
He added that the U.S. intelligence community is terrified they might be used to shoot down airliners.

Joe diGenova, whose wife Victoria Toensing – a former deputy assistant attorney general – also represents Benghazi witnesses and others with knowledge of the terror attack, told WMAL radio that the loss of those missiles is also one the reason the U.S. State Department shut down 19 embassies across the Middle East last week. 'A lot of people have come forward to share information with us,' he said during the radio station's 'Mornings On The Mall' program Monday morning. 'We have learned that one of the reasons the administration is so deeply concerned' is that 'there were 400 surface-to-air missiles stolen, and that they are ... in the hands of many people, and that the biggest fear in the U.S. intelligence community is that one of these missiles will be used to shoot down an airliner. 400 missiles, surface-to-air missiles, taken from Libya.'

Asked if the missiles are now 'in the hands of al-Qaeda operatives,' DiGenova replied, 'That is what these people are telling us.'
SCROLL DOWN FOR AUDIO

Iranian military units are routinely equipped with surface-to-air missiles. 400 such units were taken during the Benghazi terror attack, says lawyer Joe diGenova


diGenova (L) and Toensing (R) represent whistle-blowers who were privy to information about the government's response during and after the Benghazi terror attack

Nightmare scenario: A single surface-to-air missile in the hands of a trained militant could bring down a civilian aircraft like Pan Am 103, which exploded in 1988, killing 270 people DiGenova said his sources are 'former intelligence officials who stay in constant contact with people in the Special Ops and intelligence community.' 'And it's pretty clear that the biggest concern right now are 400 missiles which have been diverted in Libya and have gotten in the hands of some very ugly people.'

diGenova said that while he was uncertain whether the stolen weapons were being kept at the U.S. Consulate's CIA annex, 'it is clear that the annex was somehow involved in the process of the distribution of those missiles.'
A longtime legal fixture inside the beltway, diGenova was U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia for four years beginning in 1983, and later was an Independent Counsel appointed to investigate a State Department official who ordered politically embarrassing searches of the passport files of Bill Clinton, Clinton's mother and Ross Perot before the 1992 presidential election.

In 2007 the New York State Senate retained him to investigate then-Gov. Eliot Spitzer over allegations that he ordered the State Police to track the whereabouts of Republican State Senate Majority Leader Joseph L. Bruno when he used police escorts to travel to and around New York City.

President Obama and then-Secretary of State Clinton originally maintained that the terror attack was the product of a spontaneous protest, a line that diGenova thinks was calculated to conceal the loss of so much military hardware to enemies of the United States

CNN last week broadcast an audio interview with Ahmed Abu Khattala, the leader of Ansar al-Sharia who is suspected of carrying out the attack. He said U.S. authorities have not sought him out
Today diGenova and Toensnig, a former chief counsel for the U.S. Senate Intelligence Committee, represent Gregory Hicks, the deputy chief of mission at the U.S. Embassy in Libya at the time of the Benghazi attacks; and Mark Thompson, a former Marine who serves as Deputy Coordinator for Operations in the State Department's Counterterrorism Bureau.

The attorneys say Hicks' and Thompson's superiors subjected them to an intimidation campaign after then-Secretary Hillary Clinton's Accountability Review Board ignored their accounts of the Benghazi attack.
Toensing told Fox News in April that one of the two men was warned about the impact on his career if he cooperated with Republican investigators in Congress.
'It's frightening, and they're doing some very de**CENSORED**able threats to people,' Toensing said.

'Not "we're going to kill you," or not "we're going to prosecute you tomorrow," but they're taking career people and making them well aware that their careers will be over.' President Obama has said he is unaware of any witnesses from Benghazi who have been prohibited from working with Congress. Secretary of State John Kerry has attributed such stories to 'an enormous amount of misinformation.' In a May 30 letter, CIA Director John Brennan told Benghazi-stationed personnel that they were free to speak with Congress, but that they should involve their chain of command and follow specific procedures. That measure was seen in some circles as a subtle warning that CIA agents must not approach lawmakers on their own.

Renewed interest in Middle Eastern terrorism appeared in Washington last week, as the State Department shuttered 19 embassies across the region, following what the administration said was a credible terrorist threat articulated by someone high in the command structure of al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula.
diGenova said Monday that he knows what that threat may have involved.
The loss of the 400 surface-to-air missiles, he told WMAL's audience, 'is why we shut down the 19 embassies recently.'
'They were afraid that there was going to be a missile attack on one of the embassies. Remember, you can take a shoulder-held missile and shoot it into an embassy. Not just into the sky.'
'That's what this was all about,' he insisted. 'That's why they're so worried. That's why they have lied repeatedly about what happened in Benghazi, because they are now responsible for all of the stepchildren of violence that happens as a result of this. This is a very serious matter.'
