They were here for less than 24 hours… they were here for about 4 and a half hours. And I have to imagine they weren’t able to do much in that time.
I am told by Libyan security ministry officials that they stopped by the US mission compound for just over an hour, running through it, basically, taking a look and collecting some evidence, but not doing much.
And after they visited that they went to a local market that’s called the Two Dinar market, it’s known for its cheap wares and stolen merchandise. So it sounds as though they were looking to see if any equipment or materials from the US compound had turned up there. But they came in at about 2 o’clock p.m. according to the Libyans and left at 6:30 p.m. so they really were not here long."
