From Washington's Blog:
Both parties are still trying to sweep the bigger story under the rug.
"The Wall Street Journal, Telegraph and other sources confirm that the US consulate in Benghazi was mainly being used for a secret CIA operation. They say that the State Department presence in Benghazi “provided diplomatic cover” for the previously hidden CIA mission. WND alleges that it was not a real consulate.
"Former CIA officer Philip Giraldi confirms:
Benghazi has been described as a U.S. consulate, but it was not. It was an information office that had no diplomatic status.
"Reuters notes that the CIA mission involved finding and repurchasing heavy weaponry looted from Libyan government arsenals and moving them to jihadist Syrian rebels."
