Islamic militia groups says it has 'secured' US compound in Libya

An Islamic militant group said Sunday it has “secured” a U.S. Embassy compound in Libya’s capital city of Tripoli.

American personnel evacuated the area roughly a month ago amid ongoing fighting in the country.

An Associated Press journalist walked through the compound Sunday after the Dawn of Libya, an umbrella group for Islamist militias, invited onlookers inside.

Windows at the compound had been broken, but it appeared most of the equipment there remained untouched.

I wonder how long it would have taken the F-111s under Reagan to have located that facility and used it for bombing practice?

It would be nice if they left a little housewarming present for the new occupants.

Would those be the ones Obama calls the Junior Varsity or are these the religion of peace ones?

Maybe they can use the communications equipment there to call their friend(s) in the white hut directly. I knew Clown Prince nobama’s foreign policy was genius.

Sometimes things left behind are there for a reason. All that it appears to be, isn’t always what it actually is.

Yes we are.
The libs aren’t concerned, especially in NY, which after 9/11 just proves how powerful the ideology of the left is.
This admin. does NOT want to lead the world, it never has.
The only way to prove that we ARE willing EQUAL players in world politics, is to give up our position of power, to step.down.
Now this will.mean Americans may have to experience things on scales they’re not accustomed to, but it’s the only way we can begin to make it fair.
We’ve seen the Towers fall, they’re already here,have been.
As long as liberals refuse to take a proactive, offensive stance against what is obviously coming, they will be victims, for which the left is so good at teaching one to be.

They already know that trying to contact 0bama through embassy communications equipment gets you a dial tone.

Obama has screwed Libya up beyond repair. It will be left to Egypt to sort this out.

I agree, the best hope is for Egypt to take over the whole region.

Must have been John Kerry’s OPED in the New York Times that the Embassy posted 7 hours ago. Perhaps they didn’t like John Kerry’s pontificating?

Maybe they’re courageously “battling” in the great “war” of “ridiculing” and “sarcasm” at home.
