Al-Qaeda Flag Flew Openly at June 2012 Rally in Benghazi; Anti-Aircraft Weapons on Display

The New York Times has a massive research department; I am a lone independent journalist. How come the Gray Lady didn't find these pictures, but I did? The following photographs were taken in Benghazi in June 2012. Notice the black flag of Al-Qaeda clearly on display. Notice also the weapons. They are not slingshots. These people were prepped for assault.


The rest of the photos are after the jump...

Ms. Keating, I am a reporter working on this story for the New York Times. I would like to discuss with you where and how you obtained these photographs.

My understanding was that NYTimes reporters do not 'write' stories, they 'craft' them.

Cheers

I would think that citizens spontaneously demonstrating wouldn't remember to bring mortar tubes, baseplates and mortar rounds. That might lack spontaneity...

I've heard it defined this way, this is not "defective eyesight, but selective eyesight". They only see what they want to see, forget about the obvious truth.

Susan, you are doing your homework. Thank you.
