Skip to comments.The Benghazi Terrorists in their own words
Posted on 11/02/2012 11:48:02 PM PDT by Dave Mellon
I analyzed this video in three ways. First I examined the video itself to determine what was happening and where. Second I wanted to determine what was being said to see if I could determine if there was any clear evidence of pre-planning or coordination. This prima facie evidence was available to our government on September 12th, Benghazi time and September 11th, U.S. EDT. If there is evidence of pre-planning or coordination in either the video itself, or in the spoken word of the terrorists, it would be obvious that our government has either been lying to us all along or we have an incompetent intelligence community at the CIA.
The third way I analyzed this video was as a curious and really, really, mad American. Like me, you have probably watched selected parts of this video as B-roll voiced over on Fox News Channel 100 times or more. All of the main stream news media outlets have aired parts of it at least once. In this raw video you get to hear the terrorists without a voice over.
As I listened to the terrorists speaking in loud voices and at times yelling, I wondered where the American Diplomatic Security Special Agents were? Perhaps the nine foot block walls cut out the noise or maybe the terrorists were not even at the U.S. Consulate compound (as it turns out, they were right outside the compound). I thought surely the CIA looked at this video and immediately had it translated and examined to determine where the terrorists were having their little talk. I thought surely all of the major TV networks and of course the NY Times must have reporters who have heard this audio. Surely they all must know what is being said. So where is the translation?
After searching for a certified Arabic translator for three weeks, I finally found one who agreed to translate this video into English. Unfortunately, once he actually saw and listened to the video he became very distressed. He said that these "people" do not truly represent Islam. After listening patiently to a 1½ hour history lesson on Islam and reading parts of an English translation of the Koran with him, I agreed the terrorists did not represent Islam. Actually I agreed with him immediately, but he didnt believe me I guessbecause he kept going. I listened patiently as he proved the terrorists did not represent Islam. Anyway he finally watched and listened to this short video clip for about an hour. In the end, he was clearly too stressed to share the translation of everything he heard and he implied that the terrorists were speaking in two different Arabic dialects, Libyan (Maghrebi), which he understood, and another one which he could not understand very well. So I have concluded that I need another Arabic speaking translator for the parts my translator could not understand or refused to translate for me. If anyone wants to help, please let me know what you hear in the comments section. This video clip is part one of the terrorist's story. Part 2 will be up sometime on Saturday.
Now as to what my certified translator did translate for me. First he concluded that the terrorists did not seem to have a clear leader. Words and phrase that he could clearly understand are as follows:
00:00-00:05 Announcer: We are now showing you the first pictures of the attack on the American Consulate in Benghazi.
00:21 I swear to God you did your best.
00:22 Listen to me.
00:22 Take pictures, take pictures.
00:23-24 Keep it moving.
00:30 Listen to me.
00:31 We did something, no need to waste time talking. We can move forward.
00:32 Ill stay with you and what I am feeling is the same as you.
00:33 The American.
00:40--00:41 You do not know whats going on. Note: Here the terrorist may be speaking to the young man in the navy *blue* vest. I have concluded that he is a frightened *Blue* Mountain security guard who was lucky to escape with his life.
00:5600:58 Try from other (spot, place, side, or direction.)
01:01 Trying from other direction.
The remaining statements are untimed. My translator said he had another appointment so I did not get to nail down the times and we did not get through timing the video past 1 minute 13 seconds.
Keep using the camera to take pictures.
Need to show what we can do to America.
Say or remember God.
Young men, listen to me.
The window toward the yard.
Let them bleed.
Then why aren't Christians, Catholics or Jews doing this sort of thing?
Thanks for your persistence, Dave.. Saw the photos at Flicker too.
Great work! Thanks!
maybe jveritas can help you on the Arabic
I am just letting you know what I ran into trying to get this video translated. It was a lot of work and I was disappointed I did not get a better result; nevertheless, look at what I was able to get translated and ask yourself, how come you have not been told what they said that night. Why is it that all you get is B-roll. Many people in the Middle East know what was said because they could watch and listen to it on several news media outlets just as you can now see and listen to it--9 weeks later but only because of FR.
Thank you. I wish I could respond better but I am working very hard to get a lot posted and I am no expert with HTML and video editing or FLICKR.
Thanks for your hard work. Your link appears to be broken. Anyone else having that problem?
yes, won’t open
Link worked for me.
Is that water from a water bottle that guy is spilling? If so, who come to an impromptu protest with a water bottle?
I knew the PAST would be brought up, like the Christians and the ‘Crusades’.. CURRENTLY though, Muslims are the ones who need to find CIVILITY!!
Could be one of the diesel bomb bottles; Molotov.. Supposedly, there was a supply of diesel fuel at the front gate for using to torch the compound.
These barbarians in the video are from the current crop of "jihadis." If they were all eliminated, some enterprising "imam" will find the appropriate verses in the koran and the hadiths, then he will begin training the new generation of "jihadis."
Rinse and repeat, until mankind rids itself of the scourge of islam, or until the votaries of islam prevail. Past truly is prologue. To change the equation, one of the factors needs to be changed. To the 100,000,000 or so represented by these barbarians either dar al islam, or dar al harb must be removed.
From their perspective, "dar al islam" is them, "dar al harb" is us.
