BENGHAZI,LibyaMore than six weeks after the shocking assault on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi--and nearly a month after an FBI team arrived to collect evidence about the attack-the battle-scarred,fire-damaged compound where Ambassador Chris Stevens and another Foreign Service officer lost their lives on Sept.11 still holds sensitive documents and other relics of that traumatic final day,including drafts of two letters worrying that the compound was under "troubling" surveillance and complaining that the Libyan government failed to fulfill requests for additional security.
When we visited on Oct.26 to prepare a story for Dubai based Al Aan TV,we found not only Stevens's personal copy of the Aug.6 New Yorker,lying on remnants of the bed in the safe room where Stevens spent his final hours,but several ash-strewn documents beneath rubble in the looted TacticalOperationsCenter,one of the four main buildings of the partially destroyed compound. Some of the documents--such as an email from Stevens to his political officer in Benghazi and a flight itinerary sent to SeanSmith,a U.S. diplomat slain in the attack--are clearly marked as StateDepartment correspondence. Others are unsigned printouts of messages to local and national Libyan authorities. The two unsigned draft letters are both dated Sept. 11 and express strong fears about the security situation at the compound on what would turn out to be a tragic day. They also indicate that Stevens and his team had officially requested additional security at the Benghazi compound for his visit--and that they apparently did not feel it was being provided....
.....A few meters to the right is the safe haven's bathroom. Everything here is blackened by smoke. One of the two white toilets is covered with bloodstains. On the mirror in the bathroom, an unknown person has written a macabre text in a thin layer of ash. "I am Chris from the dead,"it reads.

We will never have an entire or clear picture of what happened here. All of the principals are utterly deceitful. The administration, the Jihadists the UN approved Libyan regime, and the apparatchiks who destroy crime scenes on American soil and deliver confidential files to their masters.
This is the result of ANTI AMERICAN DEMOCRATIC CODE PINK FOREIGN POLICY in action. THE FOREIGNER, HILLARY, PANETTA and the rest of the LEFTIST CROWD should be called out for this failure and made to pay the highest penalty allowed for there actions and inaction.
Our entire involvement in Libya was and is bogus, and teh murdered ambassador was in it up to his neck prior to Qaddaffi’s murder by the same cut of jihadists. There may be transnational worms in the apple too. The whole thing is filthy, and I suspect will never, ever be entirely brought to light this side of Judgment Day.
“I am Chris from the Dead.”
So, a group from (Dubai?) goes to the embassy on OCTOBER 26TH AND FINDS DOCUMENTS???? This is INEXCUSABLE. WTF was the FBI doing while they were there? They ALL should be FIRED. There shouldn’t be a single piece of paper in that compound, not even a partially charred piece!
