That is one theory for the hyperactive cover-up of the attack on the consulate. There is some evidence that there was a detention facility in Benghazi and the attack was an attempt to free prisoners.
“Enhanced interrogation” would certainly explain the level of secrecy and coverup by the Obama administration surrounding the Benghazi terrorist attacks. It would also perhaps explain why Benghazi was so important that General Petraeus went to Libya and personally inspected the CIA facility after the attack. A scandal of this magnitude would have been the biggest “October surprise” any election season has ever seen.
A CIA detention center and enhanced interrogation would fly in the face of everything President Obama has run against since day one of his campaign. However, it would, at the same time, jive perfectly with his actions since he’s been President: increased use of drone attacks, indefinite detention without charges, failure to close the prison at Guantanamo Bay.
Exit question: If Obama signed an executive order to close the prison at Guantanamo Bay on January 22, 2009, and that prison is still open and operational today, what makes anyone sure that Obama has kept his word on the CIA detention centers he banned by executive order on the very same day?
