9. The Senate Select Committee on Intelligence would be doing a witch hunt.

At the behest of McCullough (and by proxy, Gowdy), Burr was pushed to dig. Nothing is there or we'd know. We know Benghazi was a CIA OP. We know Benghazi was followed by evacuations. We know the SoS office handled those evacuations.

So I'm guessing names were dropped in the communication which flagged operatives whose names can't be known in order to maintain their cover. The entire memo gets flagged automatically in that event.

It's possible (no, likely), the SoS office didn't even know, so the entire thing had to be flagged. If they did a partial release, you'd be able to figure out who the operatives were. It's all or nothing.

If you're evacuating people you're going to contact family, you're going to send out a call, "Hey, your son is OK and being evacuated, and the administration is making sure it happens safely." If said individual was an operative it would be completely innocent, but it would have to be classified in a release. Especially because the media would scrutinize the evacuation details to find out who these people were.

And I would wager my guess is correct because no where in the emails is anything about those evacuation procedures.
