A video was removed from YouTube.com of Paula Broadwell, the alleged mistress of ex-CIA Director David Petraeus, giving a speech last month in which she claimed the CIA may have operated a secret detention center in Benghazi, Libya.
The speech was an Oct. 26 keynote address at a University of Denver alumni symposium.
The full 41-minute speech was posted on YouTube until today, when it received wide media attention – including two links at the popular Drudge Report – over Broadwell’s comments in the video about Benghazi and Petraeus.
The video has apparently been removed from the Wayback.org Internet archives, as well.
Following media inquiries, the video was reposted by the university today at a different link.
University of Denver spokeswoman Kim Divigil confirmed to WND that the video was removed from YouTube today.
“It was down for several hours this morning but immediately restored,” she said.
During a question-and-answer session, Broadwell was asked about the Sept. 11, 2012, attacks against the U.S. mission in Benghazi.

“Now I don’t know if a lot of you heard this, but the CIA annex had actually had taken a couple of Libya militia members prisoner,” Broadwell said. “And they think that the attack on the consulate was an effort to try to get these prisoners back. So that’s still being vetted.”
The existence of a U.S. prison or CIA detention center in Benghazi would be a new development in the debate surrounding the attacks there.
