Former CIA Director: Petraeus' Mistress Wrong About Libyan Militants' Presence at CIA Annex During 9/11 Attack
A report today by FoxNews.com has raised questions about whether Paula Broadwell revealed classified information during a speech at University of Denver last month.
She told the audience that there were Libyan militiamen being held prisoner at the CIA annex in Benghazi, Libya, prior to the Sept. 11 attack. Broadwell claimed that the information was "still being vetted" as a possible motive for the attack.
This morning on America's Newsroom, former CIA Director Michael Hayden doubted that there was any truth to the claims made by Broadwell in the speech.
"I think she was just wrong. I don't know where she got it," said Hayden, who added that he did not believe Broadwell got the information from Petraeus. Hayden said Petraeus' resignation was "totally unexpected" based on everyone he has spoken to since Friday.
Broadwell also suggested in the speech that Petraeus knew almost immediately that the attack was the work of a terror group and not related to an anti-Islam video. However, Petraeus reportedly told members of Congress shortly after the attack that the uprising was spontaneous, and not a planned assault.
