CIA Director David Petraeus' mistress Paula Broadwell may have been briefed on the truth behind the attack on the U.S. embassy in Benghazi, Libya by Petraeus himself (video below).
During a speech given by Broadwell at the University of Denver alumni symposium on October 26, she spoke of some information never made public about the attack, reports Russia Today.
Broadwell said: "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.”
Broadwell's speech was on YouTube until this weekend, but was removed, however, not before copies were made by various sources, including Russia Today.
The CIA denies Broadwell’s claims that it was holding anyone prisoner in Libya.
Broadwell also said a group of Delta Force operators could have been dispatched to provide reinforcement for the Americans in Benghazi, but were not.
