First photos of Americans abandoning Benghazi Consulate emerge
Al Jazeera and Flickr ^ | 11/1/2012 | Dave Mellon aka Ben Ghazi Gates

Posted on 11/02/2012 5:48:01 PM PDT by Dave Mellon

This photograph is actually a video still captured from an Al Jazeera video of the amazing scene at the U.S. Benghazi Consulate compound sometime before 11:30 pm. Four additional captioned photos can be found at my Flickr page below.

This is the first in a series of photos I will be posting over the weekend along with some new video. In each instance it is my goal to present information that the U.S. news media has by and large failed to present to the American public. Most of the video and video still images were obtained from Middle Eastern sources.

I want to thank Congressman Issa for releasing the Benghazi compound photographs after the October 10th hearing

The U.S. news media has had over nine weeks to release these photos and failed to do so. It is time that Americans get to see what many in the news media have known about for many weeks and this is just the first set. Have you wondered how it can be that the Americans in this armored SUV could have been surprise attacked even as a U.S. drone flew overhead surveilling the area for 19 minutes before they left? Me too. Do you think there is video of the surprise attacks as the SUV made its way to the CIA Mission Annex? Hmmm, real-time video of a coordinated spontaneous protest/attack on an escaping vehicle racing down the road?

If the Abu Dhabi Jazz has it, you know the American media is sitting on it to protect their boy. In fact Fox is either sitting on it too, or other American media outlets have bought the rights to keep them from running it.

The first person to abandon the embassy in Libya was the first citizen, Obama.

   

Then the coverup...

Did Fox News say that they have a video?

Let’s put it this way, if Fox News got a story tonight that was damning to Mitt Romney they would break that story with a Fox News Alert. If they had something on Obama, they would do the same.

They did it to Bush back in Nov 1999 with his DUI.

The notes on those photos is very interesting. The gist they are trying to imply is that the US is lying about the nature and scope of the attack

Herridge On Cable Month Before Benghazi Attack: "Smoking Gun Warning Here"

There was no surprise about the attack. There was no 'failure of intel.' The attack was predicted in precise detail a month before it occurred. The draw down of security had to be intentional.

CIA Sources: Obama ordered military not to help Ambassador Stevens

The failure to approve a rescue had to be intentional.

Sources: Key task force not convened during Benghazi consulate attack

Keeping the Counterterrorism Security Group (CSG) in the dark about the attack had to be intentional.

Tweeting apologies for the 'anti-Muhammed video' beginning early that morning, repeatedly blaming all the violence at all of our embassies on the 'video' and making an apology video to air in Pakistan had to be intentional.

Stevens presence in Benghazi on 9-11 had to be intentional.

If they are covert operators and presumably they are, I would not expect to hear from them or about them because it would expose them, cutting short their covert career path and put them behind a desk. We've already lost a large number of covert operators and a station chief IIRC when the double agent attacked the CIA handlers a while back in Afghanistan.

We've lost an astonishing number of SEALs, assets abroad, contractors, and our Navy has been severely diminished, and I'm not sure we can call it all mere incompetence. Benghazi was another such well-planned effort to take out more CIA personnel and blind us, it reminds me of the lossof our intel assets all over the middle east after the embassy attack Iran in 1979, when another 'incompetant' administration somehow managed to undermine our entire intel community- the Church hearings, etc, wasn't there an "October massacre?"

Al Jezeera has a Muslim bias. However, their basis is miniscule as compared to the bias of the Media in the United States, Fox excepted. In the last few weeks I will listen to Fox on the radio and the television. I will then go to Al Jezerra. It is amazing that Jezerra is more in agreement with Fox than ABC, CBC, NBC, MSNBC and "tinkle down my leg? Chris Mathwees.

Note in the video clip at Post 17 there is a prisoner w/his hands restrained (flex-cuffed?) behind his back (in blue jeans/white T-shirt being forced towards the rear passenger side of the SUV) ...that tracks w/what was reported recently ...prisoner was turned over to Libyan forces when the CIA annex was evacuated according to the aforementioned report. According to that report no one knows his whereabouts now or if he was ever interrogated/identified.

If Fox sits on nothing then please do explain this video. I watch FNC a lot and have never seen this video.

Fox has been doing a GREAT job reporting on Benghazi. Just last night Hannity was talking about Benghazi with Liz Chaney. And Greta has also been featuring Benghazi.

Much of Fox News and Talk Am Radio has been about Benghazi.

If anybody's sitting on Benghazi it's cnn, MSNBC and the other networks.

Why are they not showing a 20 second video from Al Jazeera with text claiming that the US "compounds" were attacked by protestors? I have no idea.

Maybe because it was a terrorist attack and not a protest?

Good YouTube channel by the way. You have Twitter?

A lot of the reporters on Fox News are lazy. If you want to get Fox to air it, send it to them.

I don't have Catherine Herridge or Jennifer Griffin's email. If anyone has it please post it. They've been doing the most work on this story.

I send a lot of stuff to Hannity and Greta, but I'm not sure the best way to get them is through email. There may be better ways. Also send it to Drudge and Breitbart. HotAir, Glenn Beck etc. You've got some interesting photos here. The sand bags show how desperate they were for protection. The fact that Al Jazeera was able to film during the crisis is interesting too. Were they told they was going to be an attack and to stand by? I wonder how much video AlJazeera actually has. And anyone can see this was not an angry out of control mob.

Not sure about Catherine's email below: Hannity@foxnews.com; ontherecord@foxnews.com; rush@eibnet.com; Cavuto@foxnews.com Herridge@foxnews.com

You may be wrong is assuming that they’re not speaking.

Just because sources aren’t named doesn’t mean that sources don’t have names.

The FOX reporters have said time and again that their sources are rock solid. Can’t get much more solid than eyewitnesses.

OG: picking up on your point

When the video starts a man is standing facing the front of the SUV with his hands behind his back.

:02 seconds into the video we see that same man is approaching the car, hands still behind his back

:04 seconds same man, hands still behind his back being helped into back seat of SUV

The man is in handcuffs. Do you have a link regarding a prisoner turned over to Libyan forces when CIA annex was evacuated?

Quoting Rummychick from post 9:
“The notes on those photos is very interesting. The gist they are trying to imply is that the US is lying about the nature and scope of the attack”

This video is supposed to be of the consulate evacuation correct? There is no sense of urgency either in the still frames or the first 11 seconds of the video. Look at the man standing around with his hands on his hips.

Al Jazeera is as trustworthy as CNN and MSNBC. Keep in mind the captions on the video says “Angry Protesters Attacked At Least Two American Diplomatic Compounds”

Protesters? Angry Protesters? Gee, where have I heard that one before. I wonder if the situation room relied on Al Jazeera for their info? (only 1/2 kidding)

Those are not the movements of men who under fire. The video might have been taken at some point that night, but I have my doubts it was taken at the consulate when those from the annex were leaving with Smith's body.

We get one sided interviews/talking points from hussein and Hillary but still haven’t heard a peep out of these still unidentified embassy personnel. If it were any other distaster, CNNCBSABCNBC would have cameras shoved in their faces 24/7 but with this it’s crickets.
