Unclassified Official Benghazi Attack Photos Released By State Dept Include Jihadist Graffiti


Because of a Freedom of Information Act request by the advocacy group Judicial Watch, we have now gained access to once classified photos of the immediate aftermath of the Benghazi attack on the U.S. Consulate Special Mission Compound on September 11, 2012 that left four Americans dead. Seven photos have been unclassified by the State Department.

Judicial Watch said in a press release that it filed the FOIA request on December 19, 2012 and received the photos on June 6.

The had to file a lawsuit in late February to force the Federal government to release the images and they still have three other similar lawsuits pending.

"The fact that it took six months and a federal lawsuit to release these few photos tells you all you need to know about the Obama administration's Benghazi stonewall," said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.

"We now know that every video or photo, along with every additional piece of information we uncover, will tell us more about Benghazi - in contrast to the continued lies and spin coming out of the Obama administration about this atrocity," he added.

Below are the photos with captions describing them.

Furniture that was burned beyond use inside the compound was piled up outside in the parking lot by the time the photos were taken, suggesting these photos may have been taken long after the attack.
