Benghazi Attack a ‘Major Blow’ to CIA

• by Jason Ditz
 The attack earlier this month on the Benghazi consulate, which killed four Americans including the US Ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens was a blow to a lot of people. It cost the State Department its ambassador, it cost the Obama campaign the claim of Libya as a big “win” and it cost the Libyan government the pretense of security.
Lost in all the people who suffered from this, however, is the CIA, which officials say suffered a “catastrophic” loss after the destruction of the US Consulate, because it forced them to withdraw about a dozen spies who were staying there.
