A speech delivered by David Petraeus' mistress Paula Broadwell at the University of Denver last month was getting pulled down from YouTube and elsewhere on Monday as the CIA denied the claims made on it.

Broadwell, whose alleged extramarital affair with Petraeus led to his resignation from the CIA last Friday, leaked sensitive information about the investigation on the attacks to the U.S. consulate in Libya on Sept. 11, during the speech. She told the audience that the CIA was holding Libyan militia members as prisoners and that the attack against the U.S. may have been an effort to free them. 

"Now, I don't know if a lot of you heard this, but the CIA annex had actually, um, had taken a couple of Libyan militia members prisoner 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," Broadwell tells the audience in a speech uploaded on YouTube today.(Watch the Video Below)

The CIA denied Monday that the agency held militants in Libya before the Sept. 11 attack, according to the Associated Press.

"Any suggestion that the agency is still in the detention business is uninformed and baseless," CIA spokesman Preston Golson told AP.

Since 2009, the CIA has not permission to take prisoners after orders from President Barack Obama.. 

A link to the video of Broadwell's Speech at the University of Denver posted on Fox News' website was removed by the user.

YouTube Viewers complained that the speech had been taken down from YouTube and elsewhere today.

"Please post the whole lecture! (it's getting pulled down everywhere else)," a viewer commented on Broadwell's Speech at the University of Denver video page on Youtube. "She's beautiful, no wonder Petraeus fell for her when they were working together on his biography," the user DownWith the FourEleven wrote Monday.

"Finris: Can you upload the entire speech along with the entire question and answer? The University of Denver removed the video from their YouTube channel while I was watching it," another YouTube user with the name Anon54387 wrote today.

Paula Broadwell University of Denver Remarks on Lybia's Attack [TRANSCRIPT]:

Audience Member: Thanks for taking my question.General Petraeus in his new role has a difficult situation now in the center of the situation in Benghazi. Do you have any comment?

Broadwell: Well just to create some context for those in the room. As you know the Ambassador in Benghazi was killed along with a couple of security agents who happened to be CIA security paramilitary forces, that just came out today in Fox News. But the challenge has been the fog of war. And the greater challenge is that it is political hunting season. So this whole thing has been turning into a very political sort of arena if you will.

But the facts that came out today were that the ground forces there at the CIA annex, which is different from the consulate, were requesting reinforcements. They were requesting the it's called the C-in-C's In Extremis Force, a group of Delta Force operators, our very, most talented guys we have in the military. They could have come and reinforce the consulate and the CIA annex that were under attack.


Now, I don't know if a lot of you heard this, but the CIA annex had actually, um, had taken a couple of Libyan militia members prisoner 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 challenging thing for General Petraeus is that in his new position, he's not allowed to communicate with the press. So he's known all of this. Thye had correspondance with the CIA station chief in Libya within 24 hours they kind of knew what was happening. But if you remember at the time, the Muslim video, the Mohammad video that came out, the demonstrations that were going on in Cairo, there were demonstrations in 22 other countries around the world, tens of thousands of people and our government was kind of concert that this would become a nightmare for us.

So you can understand if you put yourself on his shoes, or Secretary Clinton's shoes or the President's shoes that we thought it was tied somehow to the demonstrations in Cairo. And it's true that we have similar intelligence that shows the militia members in Libya were watching the demonstrations in Cairo and it did sort of galvanize their effort. So we'll find out the facts soon enough as a former intel officer is frustrating to me because it reveals our sources and methods. I don't think the public necessarily needs to know all of that. It is a tragedy that we lost and Ambassador and two other Government officials and something, there was a failure in the system because there was additional security requested. But is frustrating to see the sort of political aspect of what's going on with this whole investigation.
