House GOP Outs Secret CIA Base in Libya

LOL! House GOP Outs Secret CIA Base in Libya --Letting us in on a secret By Dana Milbank 10 Oct 2012 When House Republicans called a hearing in the middle of their long recess, you knew it would be something big, and indeed it was: They accidentally blew the CIA's cover. The purpose of Wednesday's hearing of the Oversight and Government Reform Committee was to examine security lapses that led to the killing in Benghazi last month of the U.S. ambassador to Libya and three others boost RMoney in the polls. But in doing so, the lawmakers reminded us why "congressional intelligence" is an oxymoron. Through their outbursts, cryptic language and boneheaded questioning of State Department officials, the committee members left little doubt that one of the two compounds at which the Americans were killed, described by the administration as a "consulate" and a nearby "annex," was a CIA base. They did this, helpfully, in a televised public hearing.
