Daily Caller: If It Wasn’t For This CIA Officer, A Lot More People Would Have Died In Benghazi
Casualties sustained during the terrorist attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi on September 11, 2012, could have been much higher if it was not for the work of a mysterious CIA officer, according to an official report from the House Select Committee on Benghazi.
The report, released Tuesday, noted that U.S. military support did not arrive to aid the small contingent of U.S. personnel defending the consulate during the attack. Instead, it was a militia made up of former Gaddafi loyalists known as Libyan Military Intelligence (LMI) that would come to the rescue of the U.S. officials several hours after the attack. According to the report, the militia group came to the aid of the officials thanks to a quick-thinking CIA officer known only as “Officer A.”

WNU Editor: The irony of former Gaddafi loyalists coming to the rescue of U.S. officials thereby limiting the number of casualties to only 4 U.S. KIA (instead of a massacre of an untold number) .... I just cannot help myself but shake my head. I have mentioned this many times before .... around the world many people do hate the U.S. government .... but many of these same individuals are smart enough to differentiate the U.S. government from its citizens .... even to the point of risking their lives to help and protect them.
