Congressional source: Benghazi contractors contradict CIA chief

(CNN) - CIA contract security officers who responded to the terrorist attacks on the U.S. ambassador in Benghazi, Libya, last year were told by the CIA to sign nondisclosure agreements just before a memorial ceremony at the CIA's headquarters in Langley, Virginia, this past May, a congressional source told CNN.

The source says this was disclosed by the contractors during closed-door testimony on Capitol Hill this week, and it seems to contradict information sent by CIA Director John Brennan to the House Intelligence Committee investigating the events in Benghazi.

    Considering the lie CBS was complicit in perpetrating, why would ANYONE with mote than two active brain cells believe a word these guys said, say or will say in the future? If one of them told me at 10 p.m. that it was dark outside, I'd look outside to confirm that for myself.

    Maybe it's time we stop using contractors .

    20 minute delay , who gave the order to stand down.

    Unfortunate as the outcome of the attack in Benghazi came to be , it is a learning curve for anything that might again happen in the future.

    I can recall the US Marine barracks bombing in Lebanon being one of those lessons .

    Please proceed teaklans and your car thief leader . . . . the more you try the more we find out that you are lying and trying to create problems because it's all about Hillary in 2016 and she's going to sweep the floor with you just like she did when she testified.
    Turkey anyone?

    Benghazi was a total lie by the Obama regime, and we have known it from the beginning. It has taken a lot, to get to the truth, and we aren't there yet........but we know one thing for certain.......the regime lied, they did it deliberately, and they lied to the entire world about what happened there.

    The thing we still don't know, is WHY they lied. That remains to be discovered, as the regime is doing everything in its power, to cover that up.
