Paula Broadwell Says Consulate Attack Aimed to Free Libyan Militia Members
Held at CIA's Secret Benghazi Prison

I guess it's possible they were also 
mad about the YouTube video- lol

You probably wouldn't think that Al Qaeda types involved in the highly-successful raid on our Benghazi consulate would have chosen a 9/11 date of attack for any other reason than historical significance/celebration/revenge- most anybody would have expected heightened American security on that day, so if you're trying to launch a surprise attack to liberate your jihadi buddies, that probably wouldn't be the day to do it.

Yet the woman involved in the Petraeus affair
-author and Army counter-terrorism expert Paula Broadwell- seems to have betrayed the presence of just such a prison at the Benghazi complex 
(loose cannon, this one), claiming the CIA actually sees a prison-break as the primary driver of the attack:

Broadwell, a former counterterror operative, co-authored a bestselling biography of Petraeus. She discussed the book during a keynote speech on Oct. 26 at a University of Denver alumni symposium. 

(speech video in full -here-

During a question and answer session, Broadwell was asked about the September 11 attacks against the U.S. mission in Benghazi. She stated: 'Now I don’t know if a lot of you heard this, but the CIA annex had actually had taken a couple of Libya militia members prisoner. And they think that the attack on the consulate was an effort to try to get these prisoners back. So that’s still being vetted.'

The existence of a U.S. prison or CIA detention center in Benghazi would be a new development in the debate surrounding the attacks there. The information does not appear to be publicly known.

Well I dunno- they seemed pretty focused on finding, raping, and killing Ambassador Stevens to me. But if there was a CIA detention center nearby the compound, that also would bring an elevated level of defensive preparations- or so you'd think.

Alas, it's become glaringly obvious that US defensive posture at the US consulate was laughably weak in Benghazi on September 11th 2012, as Obama ignored desperate pleas for security upgrades for weeks. Our people on the ground were reporting the town to be ringed by Al Qaida training camps, yet all our facilities were insufficiently defended for even a basic diplomatic post (in a place as full-of-nuts as that). 

The presence of a CIA prison in there -presumably holding high-value targets, not your garden-variety Islamists- just makes it all the more gobsmacking that the Obama Administration could basically leave the place undefended. It doesn't matter how 'secret' they thought it was, all it takes in today's Libya is a rumor to bring the worst people in the country to your doorstep, while the Benghazi consulate's turn-tail Libyan security 'guards' were known to be compromised by Al Qaeda anyway.

All I know is that if the Gee-Oh-Pee doesn't possess the gumption to press Dear Leader up-against-the-wall on his Benghazigate LIES relentlessly, tirelessly, and driven with a determination that delivers justice, there's going to be political HELL to pay- you listening, lame-stream Republicans?

Not only did Obama and his bumbling crew botch this on every level imaginable, they're lying their asses off about it, and are now even involved in an all-out post-election effort to silence those who know the truth. Yet when it all comes out, this is going to make Watergate look like some cute, boyish prank- believe it.
