    A militia loyal to the unity government attacked an airbase controlled by Khalifa Haftar's forces, according to reports At least 141 people, mostly soldiers loyal to Libya's Field Marshal Khalifa Haftar, have been killed in an attack on a southern airbase, a spokesman for his forces said on Friday. Reports suggest the Third Force militia, which is loyal to the UN-backed Government of National Accord in Tripoli on Thursday attacked the base used by Haftar's self-proclaimed Libyan National Army (LNA). LNA spokesman Ahmad al-Mesmari on Friday said the victims included civilians who worked at the Brak al-Shati airbase or were...

    WASHINGTON (AP) -- The State Department said Tuesday it never concluded that the consulate attack in Libya stemmed from protests over an American-made video ridiculing Islam, raising further questions about why the Obama administration used that explanation for more than a week after assailants killed the U.S. ambassador and three other Americans. The revelation came as new documents suggested internal disagreement over appropriate levels of security before the attack, which occurred on the 11th anniversary of the Sept. 11 terror attacks on the U.S.

    Facts keep getting in the way of President Obama’s narratives. The most disturbing of the many examples: Libya. We now know three things about the deadly attacks on our consulate in Benghazi that President Obama did not want us to know. The State Department had warnings of an attack for months before it took place. A State Department official confirmed to a House investigative panel that “there were 13 threats made against the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, during the six months before the Sept. 11 attack on the facility,” CBS News reported on Wednesday. The Obama administration failed to...

    The State Department told reporters Friday afternoon that it won't answer any more questions about the Sept. 11 attack on the consulate in Benghazi that killed four Americans until the investigation into the incident is complete "I'm going to frustrate all of you, infinitely, by telling you that now that we have an open FBI investigation on the death of these four Americans, we are not going to be in a position to talk at all about what the U.S. government may or may not be learning about how any of this this happened -- not who they were, not...

    I spoke with a well-placed journalist last night whose sources describe the situation at the State Department in one word: “Chaos.” The working assumption is that several American embassies may have been penetrated, or are vulnerable to attack, because so many of them rely on local residents for staff needs at the embassy, and as such may be in a position to breach security if they have been recruited by Al Qaida. ...The consulate in Benghazi was an interim facility, with only a standard door lock for security, and worse, Ambassador Stevens was traveling with only a light security detail,...

    A day after the attack on the US consulate in Benghazi that left Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans dead, local residents held a demonstration to express their support for the United States and their indignation at the radical Islamists’ violence. The gathering took place at Al-Shajara square. Demonstrators held posters with messages including, “Benghazi is against terrorism” and “Sorry Chris, Benghazi couldn’t protect you.” This photo of the demonstration was posted on Facebook.
