(Reuters) - An American staff member of the U.S. consulate in the eastern Libyan city of Benghazi has died following fierce clashes at the compound, two Libyan security sources said on Wednesday.

"One American staff member has died and a number have been injured in the clashes," Abdel-Monem Al-Hurr, spokesman for Libya's Supreme Security Committee, said, adding that he did not know the exact number of injured.

The Arab Spring and Obama’s efforts to promote his friends in Libya have had exactly the outcome that almost everyone on FR predicted before Obama started bombing one group of our enemies to help another group of our enemies. I assume the media will report this attack as “surprising” and “unexpected”.

OK, will the Dimmhis figure out that Obama didn’t bring all that peace and love with muslims in Libya? Or Egypt?

Oh wait, nevermind ...

Couldn’t we just send them iPod’s with 25 of Obama’s “greatest” speeches?

We could throw in the Cairo speech and his “my muslim faith” interview right now, no extra shipping and handling!

Condolences to the family(ies) / relatives of the unfortunate staffer.

Speaking to one last night (I suspected he might have been but it was later told to me by another person) he told me that he was awaiting the destruction of Israel and that it would be “good” when it happened.

Most of them have been raised on this stuff since childhood; very difficult to get some to change.

OTOH, I do have a friend who is muslim and he listens to what I teach him about the Bible and Bible prophecy.

Haven’t converted him yet, but he is listening and very friendly.

But I’d hate to find myself in the midst of some of these other folks in the Middle East. I imagine one could get martyred quite easily for Christianity.

This is the result of US interference by Obama and some RINOs like McCain and Lindseed.

We never belonged in Libya at all, the caliphate moves on. Won’t be too long until American’s die in the homeland.

This is a great opportunity for Mitt Romney to come out with a statement regarding Jimmy Carter'sBarack Hussein Obama's failed foreign policy.

“One American staff member has died and a number have been injured in the clashes,”

Those idiots helped the Islamists. This has little to do with the invasion and more to do with 9/11 and Israel.

At least no embassy worker died in Iran in 1979. OFFICIAL, OBAMA is the worst President in American History.

Yes, he should. 0bama's "Arab Spring" has resulted in two sacked embassies on the anniversary of the 9/11 atrocity and all the simpering bastard can say is that the U.S. "will never be at war with Islam" and how very beautiful that religion is.

If Romney does not respond to this forcefully, immediately, he is truly no better than 0bama and frankly I shall cease to care whether he wins the Presidency.

Are the Marines at the embassies in Libya and Egypt being ordered NOT to fire their weapons when these idiots breach the walls and enter US sovereign territory?

Not sure if they entered in Libya, but they sure did in Egypt; where they took down the US flag, burned it and ripped it up, and then put up their own flag.

The US Ambassadors in both places should immediately be relieved of duty and all personnel recalled to the US, while closing both embassies and severing diplomatic relations with those countries and stopping any further aid. ...Then, Hillary should be nailed to the wall for any complicity in the orders to not allow the Marines to protect the embassies.
