Two days before the deadly Sept. 11 attack on Americans in Libya, three U.S. officials met pro-government militias working to provide security in the city of Benghazi.
In that meeting, which included the American economic and political counselors, Mohammed el Gharabi, a leader of a prominent militia, says he warned the Americans that the security situation in Benghazi was deteriorating.
Assassinations are becoming rampant; no one is safe, including militiamen like himself, he says he told the Americans.
He asked for help to secure Benghazi and suggested scaling back or possibly closing diplomatic missions until conditions were more secure. He didn't cite any specific threat, but reminded the Americans that there had been an attack in June on the fortified U.S. Consulate, which is enclosed by a high wall, topped with concertina wire.
They didn't heed his warning, he says.
So far, the U.S. government has been tight-lipped about the security procedures that day when a two-pronged attack on the consulate and a safe house left four Americans dead, including Ambassador Chris Stevens.

npr turns on Dear Leader.
Next up, dogs and cats living together...
.... and they're both looking for George W. Bush's shirt to wipe them clean.
NPR? NPR? Someone at NPR is going to lose their job tonight.
I think the “film” thing has run its course. People aren’t buying that Clinton bull**** anymore. Protesters do not carry RPGs and bring mortar companies with them to their protests.
Should be buying billboard space for that graphic. I’ll bet all the Progressive-Liberal cartoonists will be copying it..............not.
It is such a powerful image it doesn’t need words.
that’s obama’s new flag - available in ‘bumbles campaign site -
they actually replace our flag!
Libya is a free fire zone anyway with an unprotected ambassador traveling around.
Yeah. What’s up with that?
Exactly .... the ‘Obamination’ flag ... stripes that look like they are painted in blood and the Obama cult symbol in the corner. This is all part of the cult worship of Obama .... they have one of the US, too .... stripes in the shape of the country and the cult symbol in the upper left.
Only $35 each. Don’t everyone order at once and crash the website. /s
I am praying that NPR puts politics aside. This certainly has to upset them and all liberal media outlets that were lied to. OUR DIVISION MAKES GOVERNMENT STRONGER. WE CAN ALL AGREE WE DON’T LIKE BEING LIED TO.
ixed it for ya
Now THAT is a good graphic. Your work?
“NPR? NPR? Someone at NPR is going to lose their job tonight.”
I don’t think so. They don’t like being played. They particularly don’t like being shown to have been played. They’re trying to save some face.
I got it from a post by FReeper mkboyce who said “pass it around” ... so I am!
I AGREE! AT LEAST WITH BUSH WE KNEW OUR MONEY WAS BEING SPENT FOR OUR SAFETY; ALL OF OUR SAFETY. BLACK, WHITE, LEFT, RIGHT.. ALL OF US. THEIR POWER ONLY COMES FROM OUR DIVISION.
Thank you. I missed that. Nice call, done respectfully.
God bless us all.
Very nice. I was thinking that FReepers might be losing their edge.
That bottom photo looks like Thulsa Doom in Conan.
