What was the CIA doing in Libya...
Supposedly the covert CIA operation in Benghazi was concerned with the weapons circulating in eastern Libya. While there have been reports that weapons were being shipped to Turkey for the Syrian rebels, other shipments were directed to Gaza and the Sinai. Which operatives are shipping weapons to these destination?
Egyptian media reports said Gaza was the intended destination for the weapons, which included 185 crates filled with 5,000 rounds of bullets, anti-tank and anti-aircraft munitions, rocket-propelled grenades, landmines and explosives. The value of the shipment was estimated at $3.3 million.
It was the second weapons shipment from Libya that Egyptian authorities intercepted in less than a week. Last week, a convoy of pickups was stopped near the Egyptian town of Marsa Matrouh, not far from the Libyan border. The trucks were carrying, according to Egyptian reports, 108 Grad rocket warheads.

Weapons are routinely seized coming into Egypt from Libya. Just last month, Egyptian authorities stopped two pickups, also near Marsa Matrouh, that were traveling toward Alexandria on Egypt's Mediterranean coast. They were carrying scores of rockets and mortar rounds, authorities said.
Egyptian security officials say it's not always clear where the weapons are headed: Islamist militants in the Sinai or Palestinian militants in Gaza. Both receive weapons from Libya, authorities say.
