    Three days before the deadly assault on the United States consulate in Libya, a local security official says he met with American diplomats in the city and warned them about deteriorating security.

    Jamal Mabrouk, a member of the February 17th Brigade, told CNN that he and a battalion commander had a meeting about the economy and security.

    He said they told the diplomats that the security situation wasn't good for international business.

    "The situation is frightening, it scares us," Mabrouk said they told the U.S. officials. He did not say how they responded.

    Mabrouk said it was not the first time he has warned foreigners about the worsening security situation in the face of the growing presence of armed jihadist groups in the Benghazi area.

    The main building in the compound is in charred ruins.

    The suite where the body of the ambassador was found was protected by a large door with steel bars; the windows had steel bars.

    His body was recovered after looters broke into the room. It appears his security detail left him in the room while they tried to deal with the attack.

    There are numerous questions about what happened at the consulate where protesters had gathered to demonstrate against the film "Innocence of Muslims," which reportedly was made in California by a filmmaker whose identity is unclear.

    Chief among the questions is what happened to U.S. Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens, who went missing during the attack.

    The State Department has not released details about how Stevens died, though numerous media reports have said the ambassador was taken from the consulate to the Benghazi medical center by locals.

    He arrived at the hospital, according to the reports, unresponsive and covered in soot from the fire. A doctor was unable to revive him and declared him dead, the reports said.

    According to one of the Libyan security guards who was stationed at one of the gates armed with only a radio, the assault began simultaneously from three directions...

    Bush had nine months to listen to the top terror experts.

    Bush had nothing to do with this debacle, it's Obama's and Hillary's doing. They get all the credit for this one. ;)

    This is your Dear Leader's illegitimate War mess. And that is the reality, no matter how much you desperately try to blame the BOOOOSH and Romney.

    There is a lot more to this attack than what is on the surface. I don't know who or what but the attackers were too well prepared and had way too much intel to be random extremists with RPGs.

    Yeah, most Americans are repulsed at how they frantically tried to blame Romney right after the attack. That pathetic smokescreen just ain't flyin. This is a terrible debacle. And it is all on the Dear Leader. This is his illegitimate War.

    Try living in the here and now. Bush is no longer President and hasn't been for almost 4 years. Libya was on it's good behavior when Obama took over. This is Obama's mess that he didn't see to it that our consulates were protected on the anniversary of 9/11. It has already come out that the consulate suspected that they were under surveillance. I feel sure they would have communicated that to the State Dept. I also feel sure that we won't hear about communications that occurred until Obama is defeated in November.

    The Libyan War. He didn't even attempt to get Congressional approval. And that's a disgrace that won't ever be forgotten by many Americans.
