A Libyan policeman was caught photographing the inside of the US Consulate in Benghazi on the morning of September 11, hours before US Ambassador Chris Stevens was killed in a terror attack there, and worried US consular staff complained to the Libyan Foreign Ministry over the security breach, an Arabic TV station reported on Thursday, quoting from letters found at the consulate after it was attacked.
Alaan TV, a channel based in the United Arab Emirates, said the letters also showed that the Americans had been urging the Libyan authorities to provide special security arrangements for Stevens visit including a 24-hour police guard at the front and rear gates of the consulate, a mobile patrol and a bomb-sniffing dog but these requests were not granted. The consulate was left for many hours with no police support at all, one letter complained.
In excerpts of the TV broadcast recorded and translated by MEMRI (the Middle East Media Research Institute), Alaan TV said it was basing its report on documents written by US consulate staff on September 11 and found in the Tactical Operations Center building of the consulate.
The report referred to two letters one addressed to the Libyan Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and the other, almost identical in content, addressed to the Benghazi police chief.
In the letters, the Americans complained about an incident that occurred on the morning of September 11, an incident they described as troubling, the report said.

Libyan cop was caught photographing inside of US consulate in Benghazi on morning of September 11, TV report says
US officials wrote worried letters to Libyan authorities, protesting inadequate security, hours before Ambassador Stevens was killed
Let’s see the press ignore this story too...
Reports of prior terrorist attacks in Benghazi
Reports of a significant Al Qaeda presence in Benghazi
Spying by LIbyan authorities
Specific requests to beef up security at the Consulate
The Ambassador telling Washington that he feared for his safety.
Nope. No way possible that the State Department, CIA and military could possibly have anticipated what happened in Benghazi. Barf.

They’re not terrorists, they’re freedom fighters! Leave the Arab Spring alone.
(12:54:09 PM) vile_rat: assuming we don’t die tonight. We saw one of our ‘police’ that guard the compound taking pictures
Hate to disappoint you, but there's a complete and total 'NEWS BLACKOUT' in the United States media (except Fox News) concerning anything "LIBYA". This is like Castro's Cuba here, or didn't you know.

Al Aan TV
‘Al Aan’ is a pan-Arab infotainment satellite television station based in Dubai Media City, United Arab Emirates. It focuses on news content and entertainment programs and targets Arab families with a slight tilt towards young female audience in the Arab world.
Al Aan is free-to-air at Arabsat and Nilesat  or via SFR and Free in France.
The channel came into spotlight when it aired a rare video of a woman being stoned to death by Taliban in Orakzai Agency Pakistan.
Al Aan TV was the only TV station in the world to film and report the funeral of former Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi after his death in 2011 Libyan civil war.
Wait for it....Obama and the dems will seize on the part that points out that this incident was 15 hours before the attack began...so no ‘planned attack’...blah,blah,blah. Of course, it will be a ridiculous argument because the criminally negligent security and policy by our own administration paved the way for this attack. Just pointing it out so folks on our side can be ready for the minutiae and irrelevant arguments that will come from the ‘enemy combatants’ the other side of the aisle and in the media.
Did he have an Obama/Biden 2012 pin on?

Something tells me the shiite is about to hit the fan.
If I remember correctly the computer tech guy...Smith I think was his name was, wrote in his final post they were taking photos of the place and he didn’t think he was going to live.
Do you remember that?
Yep. See post #6.
Reminds me of the police protection Don Corleone got at the hospital.
I hope so...been praying very hard. Now we have reports of voter machines in ALL the battleground states switching Romney votes to Obama votes.
These people have no fear of being prosecuted or held to account at all anymore.
P.S. Thank you very much, for the Glenn Beck youtube link.
I will start a new thread.
Libyan Authorities: "Thank you for sending us news of Ambassador Stevens arrival. We are preparing the reception for him now!"
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
The “liberated” Libya government putting an Al Qaeda guy in charge of security in Benghazi should have given everybody a clue as to what was around the corner. The fox was guarding that henhouse - literally.
With “friends” like that, who needs enemies?
And it sounds like Sean and Ambassador Stevens both knew they weren’t safe being there.
Wrote letters??? Sheesh
Right, but they’re stalling till after the election.
I know you are, too.
We’re all LIVID.
Yeah seems like I remember that in an article about him being an Eve Online player.
At least we have November 6th in order to partly relieve our frustration. What a dismal four years it has been, in so many respects in regards to the current administration.
Back when this first happened there was a world of Warcraft forum where one of the people killed had said this very thing. In essence they said a cop had been photographing the facility and he wasn’t sure he’d live through the day. Anybody remember that?
There it is! I remember that!
Yes Frapster, somebody who played Eve Online with Sean Smith immediately reported he’d told him the place was being cased by their “police”. Does anyone think that if Smith told his online friend he feared for his life that concerns wouldn’t have been made known to the WH?
This is why I knew the tale about the youtube vid was b.s. from the get-go. The attack was obviously planned, there was never a protest that got out of hand.

. . . . Article, then # 4 , # 6 , # 7 .
One of the SEALS, Woods maybe, posted online that people were taking pictures of the consulate.
Is there anyway we can get the information coming out this weekend on any military threads? Our vets and troops need to know this information BEFORE they vote.
Thanks for the link. I couldn’t remember which hero had posted that.
Glad to help.
I just pinged Kathy.
I can ping to this thread when I ping the new thread Friday evening.
Is that what you need?
Yes and please ask your list to post information on any other sites that might reach our vets and troops. They need to know this information BEFORE election day.
