Behind Benghazi | The Cipher Brief

In 2012, after returning from an overseas tour of duty, I was assigned as the senior National Clandestine Service representative to the Central Intelligence Agency’s Office of Congressional Affairs (OCA).  As a career operations officer much more interested in clandestine collection and intelligence production than in Washington politics, I did not consider it to be a plum assignment.  But seniors at Headquarters wanted an experienced field officer to help manage liaison between those conducting overseas operations and those overseeing them, and that fell to me.  It was during my tenure in OCA that the Benghazi attacks occurred.
