Update:

"the intelligence community is currently
analyzing an intercept between a Libyan
politician whose sympathies are with al
Qaeda and the Libyan militia known as the
February 17 Brigade—which had been charged
with providing local security to the
consulate. In the intercept, the Libyan
politician apparently asks an officer in
the brigade to have his men stand down for
a pending attack—another piece of evidence
implying the violence was planned in
advance."
