Benghazi gets even stranger

Excerpt at around 35 minutes into the video:

the greater challenge is that it’s political hunting season, and so this whole thing has been turned into a very political sort of arena, if you will…The fact that came out today is that the ground forces there at the CIA annex, which is different from the consulate, were requesting reinforcements…They were requesting the – it’s called the C-in-C’s In Extremis Force – a group of Delta Force operators, our very, most talented guys we have in the military. They could have come and reinforced the consulate and the CIA annex. Now, I don’t know if a lot of you have heard this but the CIA annex had actually taken a couple of Libyan militia members prisoner, and they think that the attack on the consulate was an attempt to get these prisoners back.

Here’s another speech that aired on C-SPAN. BTW, the title of the book was All In: the Education of General David Petreaus. Indeed.
