    I'm actually really surprised... from what I've seen at US consulate/embassy events, and even privately in developing countries, American diplomats are well protected by Marines (corrected). That there were no other casualties other than the diplomats is odd... but this appears to be a breaking story...

    The U.S. Ambassador to Libya, Christopher Stevens, and three other American diplomats were killed when suspected Libyan religious extremists stormed the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi late Tuesday, according to Libyan Deputy Prime Minister Mustafa Abushagour.

    Libyan officials spent the night in a manhunt trying to find those responsible for the killings which occurred when an angry and armed mob attacked the diplomatic facility in an apparent protest against an anti-Islamic video created and produced by a group of American Jews.

    "It is with profound sadness that I share the news of the death of four American personnel," said U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in a statement. The statement identified another of those killed as Sean Smith, a foreign service information management officer.

    The circumstances surrounding the death of Ambassador Stevens and Mr. Smith weren't immediately clear. Two Libyan security officials in the capital Tripoli gave conflicting reports of the events that occurred several hundred miles away. One said that the ambassador's convoy had been hit by a rocket-propelled grenade. Another said that the diplomats died of smoke inhalation.

    President Barack Obama issued a statement early Wednesday condemning the killing and praising the four diplomats. "They exemplified America's commitment to freedom, justice, and partnership with nations and people around the globe, and stand in contrast to those who callously took their lives," the statement said.

    There has been no claim of responsibility for the consulate attack or for the death of the diplomats. A witness to the mob late Tuesday said that the Libyan protesters had identified themselves as members of Ansar al-Shariah, an armed brigade that follows the conservative religious Islam of some jihadis. However, Ansar delivered a statement early Wednesday denying that its members were behind the attack.

    You're a jackass. You would use this in an attempt to score political points even though there is so little information as yet out there. And as for security, even in places where I've been the first layer of security always seemed to be outsourced to locals.

    Your responses however are a reflection of your (lack of) character and do a terrible disservice to anyone you purport to represent - including the US military. I also corrected the M as it was an oversight - which is more than you can say for the innumerable factual errors you post on an almost daily basis.

    More details emerge -

    http://abcnews.go.com/International/US-ambassador-libya-christopher-stevens-killed-consulate-attack-benghazi/story?id=17215154#.UFCPlKLA-QI

    Nearly a dozen Americans were inside the consulate at the time, guarded only by Libyan security. For nearly 20 minutes the Libyan guards exchanged fire with the attackers, who hurled a firebomb inside.

    The militants burned down at least one building in the attack. It's not clear whether Stevens was killed by smoke inhalation or was in a car, which may have been hit by a mortar, as he tried to escape.

    Foreign Service Information Management Officer Sean Smith died from smoke inhalation during the attack.

    Two more Americans, possibly guards who were trying to get Stevens out of the area, were also killed. U.S. officials are still making next of kin notifications, according to a statement from Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

    It's not clear what triggered the attack. Protesters in Egypt on Tuesday scaled the walls of the U.S. embassy and tore down the American flag in an angry demonstration against a movie about the life of the Prophet Muhammad, depicting the found of Islam as a fraud and a womanizer. It's not certain whether the movie was a factor in the Libyan consulate attack.

    "I strongly condemn the outrageous attack on our diplomatic facility in Benghazi, which took the lives of four Americans, including Ambassador Chris Stevens," President Obama said in a statement. "Right now, the American people have the families of those we lost in our thoughts and prayers. They exemplified America's commitment to freedom, justice, and partnership with nations and people around the globe, and stand in stark contrast to those who callously took their lives.

    "I have directed my administration to provide all necessary resources to support the security of our personnel in Libya, and to increase security at our diplomatic posts around the globe," the president continued. "While the United States rejects efforts to denigrate the religious beliefs of others, we must all unequivocally oppose the kind of senseless violence that took the lives of these public servants."

    Mohammed el-Megarif, Libya's interim president, apologized to the U.S. on Wednesday for the attack that killed Stevens and vowed to bring the culprits to justice.

    Stevens, who was a career member of the Senior Foreign Service and served two tours of duty in Libya, began his term of appointment on May 22, and he was in Libya during the uprising that deposed Col. Muammar Qaddafi, serving as the American representative to the transitional national council.

    Obviously really sad both for those who served but also it suggests things are really not going well for Libya and her people.

    When it comes to YOU that would be 100% true. Now, Riddler, I happen to respect a lot. He's an extremely intelligent poster who doesn't go around picking fights with and/or attacking people, and yet he gets attacked all the time. Clearly, yet again, you have woken up on the wrong side of the bed only to find that someone had crapped in your Wheaties. I'm so sorry.

"Don't back down" and yet you have removed all details about yourself even though you provided a remarkably pathetic interview to the New York Times. Are you not proud of that interview? Or are you backing down?

    What happened in Benghazi is not only remarkable but tragic and yet choose to focus on a relatively small detail. What a pathetic and small man you are.

    Typical that when you disagree with someone you think that the best response is to shout them out or tell them to shut up. That's why few people have any respect for you. They may have respect for what you claim to have been but that's clearly limited by your immature and often incoherent rants that you bestow us with.

    I noted that I erred, and it wasn't in saying anything about how security was managed in Libya as I plainly pointed out that I didn't know.

    But the bigotry emerges now. Good job. And you think that's going to earn you respect? Do however keep it up.

    Outsourcing of security of American missions abroad is no "small detail".. Go fuck yourself with soy sauce huh?


    I noted that I erred, and it wasn't in saying anything about how security was managed in Libya as I plainly pointed out that I didn't know.

    But the bigotry emerges now. Good job. And you think that's going to earn you respect? Do however keep it up.
    And that "detail" is my my FIRST fucking post in this thread, jackass.

    Respect is earned.
    No wonder you have none.


    And why you have even less. You have so little self awareness that you don't recognize that you proclaim to the world in your profile that you are a hypocrite. "Don't back down" and yet you have removed all details about yourself even though you provided a remarkably pathetic interview to the New York Times. Are you not proud of that interview? Or are you backing down?

    What happened in Benghazi is not only remarkable but tragic and yet choose to focus on a relatively small detail. What a pathetic and small man you are.

    You do realize that people can actually bother reading the earlier posts? Or, have you forgotten? You brought up two points and one of which, was an error on my part, and the other was a straw man. You truly are a sad man to be pitied.

    TropicalMark saidYeah jackass, I take that seriously.. Its a "respect" thing, something of which you know nothing of.


    When it comes to YOU that would be 100% true. Now, Riddler, I happen to respect a lot. He's an extremely intelligent poster who who doesn't go around picking fights with and/or attacking people, and yet he gets attacked all the time. Clearly, yet again, you have woken up on the wrong side of the bed only to find that someone had crapped in your Wheaties. I'm so sorry.
    Butt out todd, We ALL here know 'what' you 'respect'..........


    Typical that when you disagree with someone you think that the best response is to shout them out or tell them to shut up. That's why few people have any respect for you. They may have respect for what you claim to have been but that's clearly limited by your immature and often incoherent rants that you bestow us with.
    I took YOU to task.. NOT todd, however he had to butt his rear into this with his first post.. You gonna defend him? Fine, too bad you dont know HOW to do that in the 'real world'.. Go eat your rice.


    Again, typical. This response is only to quote what you have stated confirming once again not only are you ridiculous but a bigot to boot. Oh meninlove, where art thou? Perhaps you'd like to come and defend your friend.

    TM, now you're just showing your true colors and they are soooooo not attractive, so unbelievably petty, and beyond pathetic. You are one to be pitied indeed.

    Strawman? Who the fuck are you fooling, moron?

    You didnt know how the security worked a mission abroad for the State dept. Every fucking member here that served within the US Marines knows. You were then TOLD. and thats a 'strawman'?

    Put those glass bottles on. You're as blind as fu man chu
