Noted. At this point I don’t know who to believe, unless it’s nobody yet. It’s not as if mistresses/spokespeople are reliable sources. It’s not as if the CIA is shy about lying to protect secrets. I’m still wait and see. wait and see if it takes a Freedom of Information action to sort it out just before the next election.

But what would her motive be to make this up? Just craving the spotlight for a while?

She could have been stretching the truth or making stuff up to spice up her speeches. It’s possible but it’s also possible that she did have some inside knowledge. If the CIA had recently taken prisoners it’s not the kind of thing they’d admit to anyways. Especially if those prisoners were freed in the raid, rendered to another government or sent to a cia blacksite. Obama probably left himself a lot of legal wiggle room on the topic of interrogations and rendition (I’m fine with that) but the Benghazi raid may end up uncovering some not so pleasant facts for lefties.
