#1 Ms. Broadwell sites "CINC's In-Extremis force" as having received a request from the CIA annex. General Ham is/was the CINC AFRICOM (now known as Combatant Commander). This type of information used to classifed at a minimum as, "need-to-know".
Probably only about 3 or 4 ways she could have known about the request from the annex. Note her high-praise for "DELTA operators". Also note her siting special intelligence products the mention of which would have been a very serious OPSEC violation in the Army I was in.
