Unconfirmed graphic ‘death photos’ of US Ambassador Stevens circulating on Twitter
Michelle Malkin's Twitchy ^ | 9/12/2012 | Twitchy Staff

Posted on 09/12/2012 5:52:44 AM PDT by blueyon

As horrible news broke this morning about the death of Christopher Stevens, U.S. ambassador to Libya, at least four graphic photos purportedly showing his death during the savage embassy attack began circulating. The man in the photos appears to be the ambassador, but some reports indicate Stevens died in the hospital.

This story does not show the photos but states that they exist. On twitter I saw 2 of them. I am outraged at the beating and killing of this man. I can not post the pictures as I do not know how. I am in tears at the meanness of people. Prayers for the families of those killed.

The animals in Libya only understand brute force. At the same time they have some readily accessible hydrocarbons.

The dilemma is to work there you have to deal with animals. The solution is to send the animals somewhere else.

Frankly, that's three dead Americans too many ~

I think Bush’s response might be: Aircraft carrier/ Cruise missiles.

It was an Act of War
on the Anniversary of the 911 Atrocities
by the same people who already attacked the US
(and the Pentagon).

Has Congress capitulated yet, like the State Dept.
and the proIslamic White House and its undocumented
unvetted occupant?

I believe every Ambassador in the Middle East should hand in their resignation (or leave) until Obummer takes fast and certain action for this act of war. It’s time for the little boy to act like a man. Except for the magnitude of his action, the new Libyan government is just as dangerous as bin laden and must be exterminated. It is time to bring winter and desolaltion to this Arab spring.

If we were energy independent we could take the necessary action and not blink an eye. The policies of liberalism tie up our hands and limit our options. They just don’t get it.

I know for a fact this cannot be true. Matt Lauer said the ambassador was rushed to the hospital and died from smoke inhalation and that there is no word on the other three that died. So these photos of a body being carried around by a swarthy man cannot be true.

Reports state that the ambassador and others were suffocated. Specifically, how were they suffocated? Were they choked to death as US Marines stood by? Were the Marines ordered to withhold fire? If so, why?

This is the result of having a no good coward muslim for a leader. The world is falling apart because we are unable to provide leadership. This is obama’s grand plan. He IS the Antichrist. The world will soon burn because of obama’s lies.

You must be right if Matt says it..............EXCEPT the photos are so real looking. Wonder if Matt is lying (or has not truly been informed with the whole facts)......hum

Looks like Drudge has a screen cap up now. I feel like barfing. Mostly because I know our president will do nothing to avenge his death.

Prayers up for his family and friends.

omg what a failure we have as a President.... this pisses me off.

Hill-Dawg does not seem bothered by this either. She is also a total failure. Can anyone imagine what kind of President she would be, too.

Given that any of those people killed could have been CIA under State Department Cover it is possible that you might not get the real facts of what happened.
It sounds like this violence is going to explode all across the region. Obama won't handle it well. He is too incompetent and his prime advisor Jarrett supports all of this.

The man in that photo doesn’t look dead or unconscious to me. You can see the tendons in his arms tightened, like he is trying to hold himself up.

Those two photos could show them taking him from the wreckage and to the hospital. I would not be surprised at all if they were in fact abusing his body, but these photos don’t seem that to show that.

And I am usually not the one to give these guys the benefit of the doubt.

If every ambassador in the Middle East were real men, yes, they would hand in their papers. But they are not. They are all 0bama appointees. Ambassadorships are the ultimate political favor. So they aren’t going to do anything to embarrass their master, not even for their own skins.

As for this ambassador, I understand he had been 0bama’s special liason to these same scum. And he was proud of what he did to help them to power in ousting Khadafi. I am outraged at his death as an attack on the United States, and I mourn for his family. But in another sense, he helped create the monster that destroyed him.

The photo on Drudge looks like his head is bloody and he is dead, where this one you can see he has been exposed to smoke. My question is was he still alive in this photo but not after the crowds had their chance at him?

That is probably true for posts to London, Rome, and other civilized places. Places like this crap hole get “careerists” for ambassadors. Yes they may be leftists but they may not be actually Obomination supportors.

Get ready for this to happen more and more and more. Its what happens when savages get ahold of technology. It really comes back to a moral choice of the viewer. We know this is out there and we can choose to not look at it. Its like the old freak shows or like pornography. We know its there and its a choice whether to look at it.

The one advantage of these types of graphic displays is that it becomes harder and harder for the media to whitewash what these savages do.

However, this man has a family. They are just learning that he died at the same time as the rest of us and they are dealign with it. Pictures like this should not be published out of respect for his family. I’d hate to have graphic images of my death broadcast to my family and the whole community at a time when my family was trying to cope with my death.

Maybe they do. The Drudge photo there is no blood on the ambassador but by the time of the later photos there is blood and what looks like a gash on his head.

I can not post the pictures as I do not know how.


Spend about five minutes on this FR Practice Thread about using HTML and you’ll have the photo posting down pat. Practice by posting a few pics on that thread and you’ll be fine.
