The Independent said the Obama administration had 48 hours notice that the embassies in Cairo and Benghazi were targets but they did nothing to warn them or put them in lockdown. The attack might have been an inside job. [Update: 9/14: Jay Carney denied today that the U.S. had any knowledge of the upcoming attacks]
Documents revealing the names of Libyans working with the U.S. government were lost as well as information on oil contracts.
One witness said that there were at least 400 of these violent protesters and nothing would have stopped them. Our State Department said there were 20.
Hillary Clinton said Libyans tried to save Ambassador Steven’s life and brought him to a hospital. There are conflicting reports about whether he was tortured or brought to the hospital to be rescued. Sometime between 10:15 and 11:20 Stevens was reportedly taken to the hospital. It was then that some say Stevens allegedly went missing for hours. His body was taken to the airport about 12 hours later.
Dr Ziad Abu Zeid, said Mr Stevens was brought to the Benghazi Medical Center by Libyans on Tuesday night with no other Americans, and that initially no one realized he was the ambassador. The doctor tried for 90 minutes to revive him, which coincides with Hillary Clinton’s version of events.
Other reports say that Stevens went missing first and his corpse was later taken to the hospital with his body being returned at an airport 12 hours later.
It was a two-pronged attack and one Libyan official said that Libyan guards told the attackers where the Americans were because they were outgunned.
Information now leaking out points to the attacks being planned for the 9/11 anniversary.
There were no U.S. military personnel at the Benghazi Embassy even though it had been attacked before.
The film, merely an excuse for the planned attacks, is a fourteen-minute trailer with an anti-Muhammed message which was posted on YouTube. Muhammad is depicted as a “fraud, womanizer and madman” in a mocking way.
The film, which might not exist, runs two hours. Supposedly it was shown in one Hollywood movie house.
The alleged filmmaker is Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, 55, a criminal convicted of financial crimes who is banned from using the Internet or computers. He is the writer and director according to the AP. His aliases are Nicola Bacily, Robert Bacily and Erwin Salameh and he is possibly a Coptic Christian.
In 1997, he was the subject of an FBI drug investigation. He blamed the drugs they found in his car, house and storage facility on a boss who did not seem to exist. He was given three years probation despite the large volume of drugs found.
In 2010, he was arrested for bank fraud and made restitution.
The cast and crew said the dialogue was added later and are very upset about the anti-Islam dialogue.
Violent protests continue in Sudan, Nigeria, Tunisia, Eypt, Afghanistan, Libya, Yemen, Nigeria, Palestine, Bangladesh, Malaysia, Sana’a, Morocco, and Jordan. Embassies and American schools are being burned down. In Sudan, U.S. and German embassies are being attacked.
The Pope is in Lebanon while violent attacks are being launched at numerous buildings including a Hardees.
Egyptian President Muhammad Morsi has not condemned the attacks on the U.S. Embassy in Cairo. (Update: He appealed for calm yesterday)
No one is mentioning the constant drone attacks as a possible cause for the hatred against us. The spiking of the football at the DNC convention certainly didn’t help .
The attackers are Islamo-fascist terrorists who want the U.S. out of the region and it has nothing to do with the movie trailer.
