According to the Middle East Media Research Institute, a report on Alaan TV, a UAE channel, exposed lax security at the U.S. consulate in Benghazi only hours before Ambassador Christopher Stevens was assassinated in a terror attack on September 11th of this year.

Excerpts from the report posted to MEMRI’s website reveal a series of communications between consulate staff and Libyan officials. At one point in the broadcast the reporter for Alaan says,”The letters revealed that since September 9, the Americans had been requesting special security arrangements, in preparation for the arrival of Ambassador Chris Stephens to Benghazi. These arrangements included the police guarding the front and rear gates of the consulate around the clock, in addition to a mobile patrol and a bomb-sniffing dog.”

She then continued: “”The Americans, however, were not granted these requests, as was made clear from the letter, dated September 11, just hours before the attack. ‘We are saddened to report that we have only received an occasional police presence at our main gate. Many hours pass when we have no police support at all.'”
