The deaths of Ambassador Christopher Stevens and "Three other Americans" in Benghazi, Libya on September 11, 2012 was a tragedy. The circumstances surrounding the deaths are murky, controversial and the subject of political debates and accusations against the competence of the Obama administration. The tragedy also provides Americans with a rare peek inside the CIA's operations, secret wars and meddling in the internal politics of oil rich countries. For several months there has been an ongoing effort by the Obama administration to deceive the public and the world about the CIA's covert mission in Benghazi. The director of the CIA, of the time, was heavily criticized within the agency for not attending the funerals of fallen CIA comrades. The reason he gave was that he did not want to draw attention to the CIA's involvement in Libya.
