Video Shows Libyans Retrieving Envoy’s Body
NYTimes ^

Posted on 09/16/2012 7:26:11 PM PDT by tapatio

CAIRO — An amateur video that surfaced Sunday appears to show a crowd removing the motionless body of Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens from a window of the American mission in Benghazi, Libya, after it was attacked last week by Islamist militants, adding new details to reports that Mr. Stevens had died of smoke inhalation while locked in a safe room.

I hope someone does a “frame-by-frame” analysis of this video. The Gaddafi capture vid was VERY jerky.....until someone broke it down and we found out he was sodomized.

The freeze framed could reveal a lot.

I truly hope some one is protecting the families and friends of the four Americans who were murdered in Libya and they are not viewing these terrible set up video's..

I weep for their well being and Pray earnestly for their Peace and Comfort..that was my thought and prayer in church today...Please continue to pray for these families, especially Chris Steven’s mother...I just can't imagine an aged woman facing this pain and that thought goes to all the familiy members..

show a crowd removing the motionless body...

How caring. Obviously, they were concerned that he was inflicted by lack-of-motion disease, and wanted to get him to the hospital ASAP... where he could be treated for this .... lack-of-motion.... disease.

What’s not seen is the face of whoever they dragged out.
What we DO hear is “allahu akbar” shouted by the mob.

Someone posted a photo a few nights ago of what looked like the ambassador being carried by a mob. He was bloodied but alive AND obviously conscious in the photo.
The photo was pulled because the source’s stuff isn’t allowed to be posted here, and I don’t know what the source was. I wish I’d thought to save it.

I agree. Imo, the evil Obama is committing against this country is unnatural. There is sin in the world, and that I consider a ‘natural’ evil resulting therefrom. But there are people whose actions go beyond the ‘norm’ of a sinful state to unnaturally evil. And this includes very evil men like Stalin, Hitler, and Obama. (Look at the eyes of Manson and serial killers; they always seem to have expressions and eyes of death, a deep dark black.)

The photos are still on the net, a quick search will find them. This appears to be the same person, except when he was dragged from the house, he still had his shirt on and his belt was still fastened.

In the later pics you can see his belt is unfastened, then when thrown over the terrorist’s shoulder, his pants are pulled down at least well below the hip.

Our state department is lying and concocting a fantasy story about the events.

Non of what happened that day had anything to do with any film, it was a co-ordinated terrorist attack and targeted assassination, directed at at least 3 of those killed.

That isn’t the photo I saw the other night but it does show the same face. The other photo was from his left and his forehead was bloodied. Can’t tell if it is in this shot or not.

Those vermin are sick, celebrating this young man’s death. And we’ve been told he was rescued from the building and taken to the hospital. Riiiiiiiiight.

The State Dept. is definitely lying. They know they’re fully responsible for this mess and don’t want the masses to know it. That’s why it’s up to those of us who have been gathering the truth together to get it out to others who don’t seem to have the time to do their own research. We can’t let the State Dept. and the MSM win this one.

Maybe someone answered already, but a site called Liveleaks had several photos a few days ago. The people dragging/carrying him around did not look the least bit “friendly”.

It wouldn’t surprise me at all that Liveleaks has photos.
I did find the one I was looking for at Google, at least and posted it just above your post.

There was nothing friendly about the vermin who dragged him around. I hope Hitlery is enduring sleepless nights, knowing she’s guilty for what those poor Americans endured.
As for Hussein, he probably rejoiced as much as the vermin. I keep spotting little smirks on his face in photos taken the past week.

We all recognize that it is difficult to know what happened with certainty, but in this case there is a lot of evidence from which we can glean a lot of facts. I did take the time to find the Facebook page of the individual who uploaded the video of Ambassador Stevens’ being removed through the window. The Facebook page is loaded with information some of which I was able to translate with Bing. It is really worth reviewing.

The man goes by “Abdelgader Elghalayini”. He is college educated and has a subscription to the moderate Libyan leader Mohamed Almagariaf. If the following link works it will take you to his FB page where Abdelgader has the photo in his timeline of Ambassador Stevens’. I think it is the one you are referring to.

https://www.facebook.com/abdelgader.elghalayini

From that photo and the video I am fairly certain Ambassador Stevens was already dead when he was removed from the consulate building. His photo gives away his probable cause of death—smoke inhalation. If you look closely at his upper lip you can clearly see soot deposits. These deposits are not uncommon in smoke inhalation deaths. As you inhale and exhale the smoke, it deposits soot on, in, and around the nostrils not to mention the lungs. Ambassador Stevens’ soot deposits are substantial indicating significant inhalation of smoke. In addition to the soot, Steven’s would have likely inhaled lethal concentrations of carbon monoxide associated with the fire (see the other interior photos of the building). Without immediate medical care he would have succumbed quickly.

They certainly didn't handle the body with any great care or trating him as though he was still alive. The narrative being put out now is that they were cheering because the Ambassador was still alive.

WAR IS PEACE, FREEDOM IS SLAVERY, and IGNORANCE IS STRENGTH.

I never said I was certain; only that the photo lead me to believe. I honestly hope he wasn’t alive by the time he was in the hands of the vermin to endure any more horror.
I did notice the soot - that’s the first thing I noticed.

I’m one of those who never goes to FB but I’m sure others here will appreciate that link. A few FReepers are able to read Arabic and may be able to add more to what you posted. There may be something there that will give all of us more light on the subject. So many “?”s right now.

I believe nothing coming out of Washington.
