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
First photos of Americans abandoning Benghazi Consulate emerge
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.
Then the coverup...
Fox News sits on nothing
So where are they with the video?
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
Well, well, well.
And what other surprises will the next 48 hours bring?
And yes, al Jazeera in now a more serious news organization than CBSABCNNBCompostSlimes. Didn’t think it was possible. The evil, disgraceful clowns in the drive-by media have truly beclowned themselves for all to see.
Pictures like these should be the only ads running from now through Tuesday. Wake up, stupid American public, and see your REAL great leader!
Some things never change
I keep asking...
“There were 37 people who made it out alive. Where are they? Why aren’t they speaking (rhetorical) and are they being sequestered until after the election?” (again rhetorical)
Thanks for doing what the dinosaur media used to do.
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.
The failure to approve a rescue had to be intentional.
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.
Yeah I’ve asked that question a few times myself but no one seems to have any answers.
BUMP! and thanks to you AND Dave.
Thank you so much. I will be working 16-18 hours per day from now through Monday getting everything up I have. My research is done!
WOW! Excellent! Great work, Dave.
Thanks for your efforts.
Ping to you, bro.
I keep asking...
There were 37 people who made it out alive. Where are they? Why arent they speaking..
That’s what I Tweeted yesterday! Where are these survivors and why aren’t they chiming in with their stories? At least a thanks to the Seals would be appreciated. Something smells fishy here.
I heard Ty Woods father say that he had received emails from some of the people saying that Ty had saved their lives.
Stolen for wide distribution ... Thanks! ;-)
It would help Ty Woods if they would speak publicly. This is such a tender-box. I hope they come forward...and soon!
LOL. Thank you. My favorite was Jules Bergman.
Umm, I don’t want to say to much but let’s just say that Ambassador Stevens story will emerge.
The ‘Hillary with sponge’ gif is one of the most disturbingly funny animated gifs of all time.
Thanks to everyone. I have a dinner commitment. I will be back in 2 hours with more video.
Dave, thank you for your hard work.
Good work Dave!
Keep it coming
That is good to hear. Before Tuesday perhaps?
Thanks for your post. Looking forward to more—praying this will sink Barry and his minions.
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.
In 4 days, 4 short days, John Galt will re-join society.
Ping to article, then read #’s 1 through # 37.
. . . . See graphics, too.
Thanks for the ping.
Do keep me posted! I am very interested in this story.
THANK YOU for all your hard work.
I was going to put Oblamer into the animated version too, but it was too much work, so there are two now...
Thank you Dave for all your hard work. If you have a ping list can you please add me? Thanks again.
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?
Here's my YouTube: CafeNetAmerica
I saw the clip and missed the fact that his hands were tied behind his back until I went back and watched again.
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; firstname.lastname@example.org; email@example.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.
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.
