CIA Holding Secret Prisoners in Benghazi?

According to David Petraeus' mistress number one, Paula Broadwell, the CIA annex and U.S. consulate in Benghazi may have been attacked on 9/11 in an effort to free Libyan prisoners the CIA was secretly holding.

In 2009, the Obama administration signed an executive order banning secret CIA interrogation prisons overseas.

Saying that “our ideals give us the strength and moral high ground” to combat terrorism, President Obama signed executive orders Thursday ending the Central Intelligence Agency’s secret overseas prisons, banning coercive interrogation methods and closing the Guantánamo Bay detention camp within a year.

Not surprisingly, the CIA is denying Broadwell's claims:

The Central Intelligence Agency denied charges Sunday that its annex in Benghazi, Libya secretly held a few jihadi prisoners until it was destroyed in the Sept. 11, 2012 attack. Paula Broadwell, the girlfriend then-CIA chief Gen. David Petraeus, made that claim during an Oct. 26 speech in Denver, Colo.

This new claim raises two questions. The first: Why does Broadwell know more about what happened in Benghazi than Congress? (We all know why) The second: Are prison camps the 2008 Obama campaign promised to close, still open? If so, we can add that to the long list of broken promises from Obama's first term as president.
