Islamic Militias Behind Benghazi Attack Seize US Embassy in Tripoli
The strategy is in the mail. The strategy is coming next Thursday. The dog ate the strategy.
An Islamist-allied militia group says it has ‘secured’ a U.S. Embassy compound in Libya’s capital, more than a month after American personnel evacuated from the country over ongoing fighting.
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.
A commander for the Dawn of Libya group said his forces had entered and been in control of the compound since last week. A video posted online showed men playing in a pool at the compound.
At least this time the diplomats and US personnel were evacuated first. But we’ve got nothing to worry about.
U.S. Ambassador to Libya Deborah Jones said the video appeared to have been shot in at the embassy’s residential annex.
She also said it appeared the compound was being “safeguarded” and was not “ransacked.”
Sure “secured”. Just like the guys posing for selfies with the corpse of Ambassador Stevens were “helping” get him to a hospital run by Ansar Al-Sharia, the group behind the attack.
Speaking of Ansar Al-Sharia, it’s part of the Libya Dawn coalition. So is Feb 17, the group that Hillary’s people thought it was a good idea to hire to protect the Benghazi compound.
Then they forgot to pay them.
Libya Dawn is overall dominated by the Muslim Brotherhood which has had trouble winning elections in Libya, but has no trouble shooting opponents.
That coalition is currently in control of Benghazi and Tripoli and has appointed its own government which no one recognizes.
