Stevens Missing for 5 Hours – Body Not Recovered for 12 Hours: Facility Bombed in June for Killing of Abu Yahaya al-Libi

As the story of the Embassy facility, considered a “consulate” in Benghazi develops, it becomes more disturbing. When Obama went to bed on September 11th, he knew Ambassador Stevens was missing. He didn’t need the 3 am phone call Hillary Clinton famously declared he would not be able to handle when it came. He knew when he went to bed but didn’t take any action, other than an apology for offending Muslims. When Obana sent in Marines, and then only 50, to the unguarded facility in a volatile Muslim country, it was too late. The same day, American’s learned that al-Qaeda’s second-in-command, Abu Yahya al-Libi, had been killed in a drone strike – action that brought a bombing outside the same facility in June, said to be in retaliation for his death. The June bombing didn’t stir enough interest from the State Department or the White House to beef up security. Now media lapdogs and the Administration are still trying to plant blame on filmmakers for an anti-Islam film. See an UPDATE on the drone kill of Abu Yahya and how officials believe it is the catalyst for the Ambassador’s death here. See an update on rape report below. See an update below.

UPDATE  9-13-13 5:30 pm EDT: The attack with machine guns and rocket-propelled grenades began at 10 pm Libyan time, 2 am US time, which would be 4 pm on Tuesday on the East Coast. Thanks to Dan Collin at The Conservatory for the correction – read his latest on security at the embassies.
Ambassador Stevens was known to be missing for 5 hours, but his body was not recovered for 12 hours. It seems Ambassador Stevens was not seen at all by any survivor of the assault from the time the attack began until dawn in Libya [on Wednesday the 12th].
UPDATE  9-13-13 6 pm EDT: So at 4 pm EDT on Tuesday, September 11th the Benghazi [10 pm] assault began, but at 6:17 am EDT on the 11th, [12:17 pm Cairo and Benghazi time] the Cairo embassy put up the notice about ‘hurting the feelings of Muslims:’
“The Embassy of the United States in Cairo condemns the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of Muslims – as we condemn efforts to offend believers of all religions. Today, the 11th anniversary of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on the United States, Americans are honoring our patriots and those who serve our nation as the fitting response to the enemies of democracy. Respect for religious beliefs is a cornerstone of American democracy. We firmly reject the actions by those who abuse the universal right of free speech to hurt the religious beliefs of others.”
The above is considered to also be a statement sanctioned by the Department of State and the White House and may have been issued by State rather than the actual Cairo Embassy. At 10:30 pm US time Tuesday night, Mitt Romney issued a statement denouncing the Cairo embassy apology. At the time of his statement, the Benghazi attack had been underway about a half an hour.
About 10 hours after the Cairo statement [10 pm local time] the attack in Benghazi began (4 pm EDT). By 2:30 am Benghazi time Wednesday morning (8:30 pm Tuesday night the 11th in Washington, D.C.) the attack was “suppressed.” By that time, Clinton and Obama had to know that Stevens was at least missing, but did not report anything to the U.S. until about 7:30 a.m. on Wednesday morning. By the time I went to bed Tuesday night, September 11th, I had already reported that one unidentified American in the Benghazi “Embassy” was dead (about 11:10 pm EDT), with no other details available. To repeat, Clinton and Obama went to bed knowing. END OF 9-13-12 UPDATE UNLESS NEW INFORMATION IS RELEASED…or I’m wrong about the timeline:-)
At some point in all of this, and frankly we do not know when, we believe that Ambassador Stevens got out of the building and was taken to a hospital in Benghazi, a senior administration official said. “We do not have any information what his condition was at that time.”

U.S. personnel did not see his body again until it was returned to the Benghazi airport around dawn. The official said the administration cannot say what the cause of death was — reports have ranged from smoke inhalation to an attack on his car — until an autopsy. Source Politico

It’s a guessing game. Someone is saying they think Stevens got out of the building and was taken to a hospital, but photos show him close to dead, and then likely dead while appearing to be dragged through a crowd. Congress and the State Department has known that our Embassies are woefully underfunded – while the State Department spent tens of billions on Climate Change around the world. Read it here.

UPDATE 9:12-12 9:45 am CDT: Last night I saw a report at I Own the World that an Arabic site was reporting that Ambassador Stevens had been raped before or after his death. This morning the Washington Times is saying the AFP has still not confirmed the report. Just an FYI.
