BENGHAZI, Libya — The U.S. ambassador to Libya and three other American officials died in a coordinated assault on the U.S. consulate by gunmen firing assault rifles and rocket-propelled grenades and carrying the black flag of an Islamic extremist group, the property’s landlord said Wednesday.

Team of Marines dispatched to Libya. Two warships on the way.
No mention of the fact the American computer specialist that was later killed said Libyan security forces that were supposed to be protecting the building were taking pictures of the building shortly before the attack began and upon seeing that they all feared for their lives...
So is that the Libyan government that Obama says he’s going to work with to find the “real” killers?
Too little too late. Obama’s foreign policy error is now fully on display for the entire world to see. he was checked and mated. warships can’t change it.
This is a powder keg, the nations concerned are controlled by moslems who want us dead, just like our own.
...The ties that bind Qaddafi to some of the world's most repressive regimes and armed movements began in the 1980s, when he was regarded as one of the premier terrorist threats in the world. Flush with oil money, Qaddafi orchestrated a training campaign for those who became the most brutal warlords in much of Africa, a legacy that has left the region crippled and unstable today. Qaddafi's World Revolutionary Center (WRC) near Benghazi became, as scholar Stephen Ellis noted in his classic 2001 book The Mask of Anarchy, the "Harvard and Yale of a whole generation of African revolutionaries," many of them the continent's most notorious tyrants. There, recruits from different countries were hosted in camps in the desert and given training in weapons and intelligence techniques, with some doses of ideological training based on Qaddafi's Green Book. Courses lasted from a few weeks to more than a year, depending on the level of specialization and rank one had. In addition to the African contingents, Qaddafi's cadres trained the Sandinistas from Nicaragua, ...----------- "Harvard for Tyrants - How Muammar al-Qaddafi taught a generation of bad guys," foreignpolicy.com ^ | MARCH 4, 2011 | DOUGLAS FARAH , Posted on Thursday, March 10, 2011 5:25:36 PM by Tailgunner Joe
The first US ambassador killed since the, ahem, Carter era.
In Washington, President Barack Obama vowed to hunt down the gunmen who staged the outrageous and shocking attack on the Benghazi consulate.
muslim enemy soldiers.
Deal with reality Obama!
Nice story, alas no happy ending. I wonder if it is true. Autopsy?
>>>>>This attack will not break the bonds between the United States and Libya, said Obama. >>>>>
No words to say.
Murdering the ambassador is huge.
Pretty on par with a direct military invasion.
Consulate abroad is a peace of American soil and consul or ambassador are top national representatives.
Further proof that izzlam is a cowardly “religion.”
Gunmen? muslim enemy soldiers. Deal with reality Obama!
The use of the terminology by President Obama, "gunmen" is consistent with the Democrats view of the purpose of the military, being "meals on wheels," and the "world's policemen." The current administration also does not use the word "terrorist" or "Muslim extremists" anymore.
President Barack Obama vowed to hunt down the gunmen
BREAKING NEWS from MSNBC
Later today President Dick Obama will be boarding transport with his private Navy Seal group. A top secret Middle-East combat mission led by Obama will commence upon landing in a secret location.
Obama, a hardened combat veteran whose recent success in personally killing bin Laden, continues his historic role as leader of the elite group.
The only acting US president to engage in numerous combat missions, many unpublicized, Obama is seen receiving additional martial arts training just before he again heads out, leading his unit composed of men, women, gay, lesbian, trangendered, queer, questioning, undecided and neutered troops into harm's way. None of the personnel speak English or believe in God, furthering the president's push for diversity in combat organizations.
obama is incapable of dealing with anything other than a chip shot on the golf course from thirty feet. he needs to go back to chicago.
Not true. He was dragged through the streets, and allegedly sodomized before he died. The Libyan islamists are apparently boasting that they did to him what they did to Kaddhafi.
The rape and murder of the Ambassador were directed and planned by Obama and Holder for their re-election
and for their future Caliphate of Terrorists.
The ONLY thing islamopigs understand is in kind retaliation for the murders and slaughter they joyfully take part in. I think they should be repaid tenfold—but this sitting pos who”will stand by muslims” will always give american lives for nothing but his own gratification and adoration by his muslim brothers.
The part about security guards placing the ambassador in a car and driving out the back gate seems inconsistent with the photos to say the least.
