Fox News confirms secret CIA prisons still operating

+

According to Fox News, on October 26, David Petraeus’ mistress may have leaked classified information relating to the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi. Paula Broadwell revealed that the Consulate annex was the most important CIA base in North Africa and it served as a secret prison. [1]

The neoconservative channel establishes a link between the leak and the forced resignation of the Director General of the CIA, due to this extra-marital affair.

This interpretation of the facts is insufficient because it fails to take into account the blackmail hanging over David Petraeus. A more likely scenario is that this information has been released in order to conveniently turn him into a scapegoat. In any event, the information brought to light is of prime importance.

On January 22, 2009 President Obama officially put an end to secret prisons and torture by issuing Executive Order 13491 - Ensuring Lawful Interrogations. Yet it is common knowledge that basically nothing has changed. Paula Broadwell’s revelations are the first confirmation of this.
