This article is excerpted from Sgt. Morgan Jones and Damien Lewis book The Embassy House: The Explosive Eyewitness Account of the Libyan Embassy Siege by the Soldier Who Was There.
In the months following the Benghazi Embassy siege I learned the fuller picture of what happened during that fateful night, both at the Mission itself and at the Annex, which was only a short drive away from the Mission. Tensions were running high that evening, because of a recce mission that a Libyan policemanor more likely a bad guy posing as a policemanhad carried out that morning. Wed caught him taking photos of the Missions front gate and grounds, and we feared it was in preparation for some kind of an attack.

"What Difference Does It Make."
All these liberals now talking about Benghazi. Seems a bit suspicious if you ask me. Even Chris Matthews is raising questions. What about Fast n Furious, IRS, and the numerous other scandals surrounding this administration?
They're getting the spin out now so that it will all be "old news" when Hillary is coronated as the Dem nominee in 2015.
Americans dies so 0’s buddies wouldn’t be annoyed.
Quotes and questions:
“As a result, the Benghazi Mission had become a place of fear for just about everyone stationed there, and especially on the day when we had what we suspected were recce photos taken of the Mission.”
Then what the *^$& was Ambassador Stevens doing in Benghazi?!
“Shortly after nightfall 50 gunmen from the Shariah Brigadea Libyan militia tied to al-Qaidarushed the Mission, and were able to gain access via the pedestrian entrance set to one side of the main gate. They did so by threatening the Blue Mountain guards with assault rifles and RPGs. Basically, the guardswho were unarmed and defenseless, because the State Department contract dictated that they be unarmed and defenselesswere ordered to open the side gate or else be killed.”
Why were the guards unarmed?!?!
So, it was a protest against a video, eh? This is an exciting and yet appalling account of that night. I can’t believe Obama and Hillary was so disengaged doing who knows what.
WHAT WERE HILLARY AND OBAMA DOING? Will someone PLEASE ask them this question?!?!?!?

Obama and Hillary: That is none of your business. Shut up and get back in line with the rest of the people.
Talk of Benghazi, INCLUDING BY RINO’S IN CONGRESS, is to provide cover for 0bama as the 0bamacare debacle heats up. Notice how Edward Snowden always makes his revelations when another story starts to heat up? Oh wait, scandals are a daily occurrence in DC now so, never mind.
‘Liberal media who have up till now completely ignored Benghazi now reporting on it’ ....’ ping. Why?
Even 0bama and Hillary were probably surprised their cover story effort succeeded and they managed to successfully delay any talk of accountability until AFTER the election. They are probably STILL surprised no accountability has been realized for their abandonment and murder of four Americans.
There was a BIG national security meeting at the WH one day prior to Benghazi and NO ONE IS ALLOWED TO KNOW WHAT WAS DISCUSSED DURING THAT MEETING.
Distraction from ACA and the F’ed website.
hitlary is toast.
Obama was sleeping comfortably knowing the slaughter victims were only Americans.
Those ant-film protesters sure were accurate with those mortar hits on the annex.
Let’s not forget how the admin pissed on the 1st Amendment.
I don’t understand why EVERYONE didn’t leave as soon as they found out their guards were unarmed.
Please add me to the “Benghazi” ping list.
We had actionable intelligence that our known and flagrant enemies would attack the Red Cross, the British and ourselves. The Red Cross and British acted. Why didn’t we?
It is premeditated murder and a continuing cover up on the part of Clinton and Obama. At no point did Hillary or Barak believe that an obscure, YouTube video by a complete goof cause the attack.
It was organized and planned and we knew it before it started.
Why not pull out?
Why not harden or take appropriate security precautions?
Why not support with the overwhelming force available to us? (60 fighters could be easily countered)
