Americans being held in Libya - 4 US Military Personnel in Custody
What difference does it make? /sarc
What are they doing there ?
And who sent them ?
Don’t bother mac daddy he’s on vacation.
Without the sarcasm, you state the dumBO regime position.
Four more set up for slaughter, but had the temerity to resist.
More like Jimmy Carter allll the time...!
Oclinton’s Libya problem just isn’t going to go away.
I’m sure the illegal, illicit, illegitimate squatter of our White House (currently on his umpteenth vacay) will rush to let us know whatever it was these MORONS did to OFFEND the Libyans!
/sarc as if you need it
Where is Lurch ??
Partying with Snoop Dog?!
Our lying State Department says that the 4 were augmenting our Tripoli Embassy security.
The Libyans point out instead that: “The episode appears to have taken place in a town just southwest of the historic Roman ruins at Sabratha and about an hours drive from Tripoli...”

American shot in Benghazi is allegedly CIA agent - Libyan sources
Sources within Libya, including intelligence sources within the Libyan Tribal system have reported that the American shot in Benghazi today Ronald Thomas Smith II was not a teacher as was widely reported. Tribal elders report that currently there are no foreign teachers employed in Libya and that Ronald Smith was in Tripoli meeting John McCain on Tuesday and Wednesday according to sources who were present during the meetings.
According to inside sources members of an Islamic extremist group called the Council of Libyan Rebels organized an ambush of Mr. Smith when he returned from Tripoli. The man responsible for the killing of Smith is reportedly one Wesam bin Hameed but this has not been corroborated.
Bin Hameed is associated with Ansar al-Sharia and is a well-known Islamic extremist terrorist leader and according to Libyan sources there are individuals who were eyewitnesses to Bin Hameeds direct involvement in the killing of Chris Stevens. According to sources Mohammed Morsi was the head of Ansar Al Sharia and planned the attack on Chris Stevens, something that would implicate his involvement in the killing of Stevens.
What a mess where is our Secretary of State, President, spokesperson....anyone?
Good LORD; help us.
More corrupt endless chaos as U.S. tax payer money is continually thrown into toilets worldwide...
(CNN) Four U.S. military personnel are being held by the Libyan government, a senior U.S. Defense Department official told CNN on Friday.
The four are believed to have been detained by the ministry of the interior, said the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity.
It was not immediately known why the American personnel were being held. We are seeking to further ascertain the facts and ensure their release, said the official.
The four were in Libya augmenting security at the U.S. Embassy in Tripoli, the official said.
That is a very very bad sign.
What are you thinking?
Fox News chief White House correspondent Ed Henry is reporting Friday night that four American service members are being held by the Libyan government. State Department spokesperson Jen Psaki has confirmed the news.

Twitchy will update this post as details emerge.
Scramble the fighters. Get a rescue team OM NOW!
Will Obama get his war to cover up Zerocare?
You mean to tell me we’re STILL distributing “hateful anti-Islam videos” in Libya? /s
The big DH is in Hawaii. You think he actually cares about the military?
JUST IN. DOD confirms four US military personnel being detained in Libya by Ministry of Interior
#Libya: 4 Americans (at least 2 RSOs) seized tonight near Aljalat, handed over to Omar Mukhtar (Libyan Shield) in Sabratha. Now in Tripoli
News seems to get confirmed. 4 US citz were held in Al-Ajelat and now they are safe and handed over to MoI in Tripoli
“Perdicaris Alive or Raisuli Dead!”
Kerry is working hard to free Jonthan Pollard.
It's Winter time, so he's probably at his (correction... his wife's) chalet in Switzerland.

Reports of US personnel detained, vehicle torched. ID’s on social media.

What difference does it make?
It makes no difference at all.
The Libyans should feel free to saw their captives head off because there will be no protest or retribution from the Obama/Democrat Party regime that is currently snuffing out the life of the American republic.
That's an awful thing to say, but I think it's the truth.
Obama and his communist Democrat Party don't car a whit about American military personnel or for that matter the defense of USA.
I’m sure Obama will get to it, after his vacation.
In addition to Obama, we have McCain, Graham and Corker to thank for this one.
U-2012>That is a very very bad sign.
n> What are you thinking?
If they were there to augment security but were out ,
site seeing instead, there is something wrong.
The Benghazi trade off for the blind sheik went bad so Obama wants a re-do.
A Mulligan ?
We need to tell the President!.....oh, and somebody get word to Barack Obama, too.
Fox is reporting that they may have been released. Hope that’s true.
Curious... Zero has been messing up all over the globe. Recent;y Podesta joined ranks. What is the end game here — nay — what is the game-changer that has been played?
Hanging with gangtsa rappa's of course.....
I have to wonder if these four guys aren’t witnesses to Benghazi and Libya is “holding” them on orders from obama to keep them from talking. And somehow the word got out that they’re being held. Now the white house is trying to come up an explanation.
@ SWAMPSNIPER: Yeah, and didn’t they set a 24 hour deadline on that?
Just a few more bumps in the road.
