U.S. ambassador to Libya killed in attack: Libya official
Reuters ^ | September 12, 2012

Posted on 09/12/2012 2:57:50 AM PDT by SoFloFreeper

The U.S. ambassador to Libya and three other embassy staff were killed in a rocket attack on Tuesday night that targeted his car in the eastern Libyan city of Benghazi, a Libyan official said on Wednesday.

"The American ambassador and three staff members were killed when gunmen fired rockets at them," the official in Benghazi told Reuters. Asked about the deaths, a U.S. Embassy employee in Tripoli said: "We have no information regarding this." The employee said the embassy could confirm the death of one person.

Obama is making Carter look like a great president. And you have no idea how sickening it makes me feel putting Carter and great president in the same sentence.

What is wrong with these people? If they keep this up, Obama might lose, which would set back their cause of destroying America and the free world.

last i checked... this would be an act of war

president courage will do nothing, of course

it is the religion of peace (as well as holder’s and the 0ne’s people) we’re talking about

Drudge needs to get his lazy tail out bed and turn on the siren. Good thing Freepers never sleep.
As someone said below, if zer0 doesn’t act decisively, and with proper urgency, Romney will emasculate him (I don’t know if that’s possible).
However, this is a really big deal, if true, as it appears to be.

These deaths are the fault of B-HO. He brought down the Libyan government for the Muslim Brotherhood. The Muslim Brotherhood is B-HO’s army. Wake up, America! The enemy within is within our White House!!!

You can do that, you just gotta put the word "not" somewhere in there as well.

Call me cynical, but I am suspecting Obama's muslim brotherhood allies of providing him an opportunity to act strong by military retaliation.

The islamist are not past suicide to help keep their ally in office. Remember Kadafy forgiving Obama for attacking him?

Apparently, Stevens died in his car, not the consulate building.
I read that the ambassador and three other staff were killed when gunmen fired rockets at his car. In my opinion, this removes any “we didn’t mean for this to happen” BS excuse, and means we have to come down on theses bastards even harder.

So true!

I predicted there would be no attacks here in the US until after the elections and would be not major actions taken by the Jihadists elsewhere as to embarass the Islamic Appeaser/Defender in Chief such as most realize they have a "bud" who is sympatico with their objectives in the Oval Office.

I guess much like it is impossible to control a rabid dog, the true believers are not as easily controlled and their hatred for all Infidels awaits no election.

As much as I hate to see the loss of one American life, these actions in Arab Spring Countries that Dear Reader supported their overthrow and welcoming the Mooselimb Brotherhood as legitimate members of their ruling classes, will come back to bite O'Bummer on the assss if they keep acting up, and could affect the outcome of the elections, depending on his response.

...”president courage will do nothing, of course”...

Was this not Obama’s plan, to reduce America and punish her globally? If so, he is achieving his goal..He has not only fulfilled his promise to “fundamentally change America as we know it,” but he is changing the entire globe, as we knew it. Who is he?

Obama’s foreign policies in Libya are as effective as his economic policies at home.

But far too many of the voting idiots of American citizenry think he deserves yet another four years. God spare us!

Ain't gonna happen.

Who is he going to declare "war" on, the Mooselimb Bros?

He is (and I love it) boxed in on this one.

He supported the overthrow of Mubarak and supported the MB as legitimate members who should be welcomed as part of the ruling establishment.

He can rattle some sabers and condemn this, but he can do little other than utter his usual BS that these attacks were cause by a "tiny minority" of "extremists" who have hijacked the Religion of Pieces.

I hope the Sheeple wake up and see through this charade as it will hurt him in Nov.

who knows. and no one seems to care

it’s even at the point that they aren’t asking for ANY documentation regarding his citizenship or birth location on ANY state ballots for the upcoming elections (admittedly, i’ve only checked 3 states... but i will continue checking today)

try calling any state election division... ask them if they have ANY documentation submitted by the 0bama campaign. they will point to a signed document attesting that they believe 0bama is a citizen and born in the US... but NONE of the people witnessing VERIFIED the information

therefore... EVERY person that attested that 0bama is eligible to assume the office, without verifying any details, should be held for election fraud

we need to start collecting the paperwork and names of all individuals involved

All they reported yesterday was a “diplomatic building” in Libya, so it didn’t seem to be two EMBASSIES in one day.

I totally agree with you..You have some knowledge which you are putting to work. If everyone with some expertise would do that, we might have a chance of getting some solid information out to the American people. The corruption is just everywhere and I think people feel helpless against that machine.

Yea, for the Dem’s that is 3 hours past mid-night, unfortunately for the American Nation. And, it might be noted that while the President sleeps his Secretary of State is the original 3 a.m. Gal whose sole purview is taking care of problems before “5 minutes to mid-night”. Both Hillary and Obama are failurs in their jobs. A quick look at the daily press briefs at the State.gov website shows almost everyday the briefing in recent view are given by Women.... America is now seen as a nation of women by the world. Ha!

I was around then. And to have this happen on the 9/11 anniversary is unspeakable.

Bush kept us safe for the remainder of his term. 0bama did not. An attack on U.S. soil. God bless the families of those murdered in Libya.

I remember America almost defeated... a president telling us we had to live like the Europeans and to understand that life in America will never again be as good as it was... and our Embassies were seized and people tortured and killed... and here we are again. I sure hope romney sees that “Shining City on a Hill”.

Three steps:

1) Demand the turnover to US of those responsible.

2) Demand Reparations.

3) In event one or two is not satisfied, - Bomb them into the Stoneage, Oh wait they aren’t far from that at present.

Well then lay waste to Benghazi and say Tripoli is next unless the individuals are turned over.
