Reuters has video of the attack:

Islamists fired rocket-propelled grenades at the US Consulate in Libya today. They also torched the building. One US official was murdered in the attack.
Aljazeera reported:

An American staff member of the US consulate in the eastern Libyan city of Benghazi has died following fierce clashes at the compound, Libyan security sources said.

An armed mob attacked and set fire to the building in what they say was a protest against an amateur film deemed offensive to Islam’s Prophet Muhammad, after similar protests in Egypt’s capital.

“One American staff member has died and a number have been injured in the clashes,” Abdel-Monem Al-Hurr, spokesman for Libya’s Supreme Security Committee, said on Wednesday, adding that rocket-propelled grenades were fired at the building from a nearby farm.

“There are fierce clashes between the Libyan army and an armed militia outside the US consulate,” he said. He also said roads had been closed off and security forces were surrounding the building.

The building is said to have burnt down after being set alight by protesters.

    From what I just heard watching Sean Hannity’s show, is that the video was made from some Coptic Christian exiles that are here in the U.S.

    I can’t find anything about what I put in my post, so it looks like the Florida Pastor has the Religion of Peace going haywire again.

    another “dividend” of obama’s outreach program for muslims and illegal war

    Let’s see………

    US Embassy in Egypt attacked……… The administration praises Muslims.

    US Consulate in Libya attacked, one American murdered……… The administration praises Islam.

    The Jihadist At 1600™ refuses to meet with Israel’s Prime Minister.

    Which leads to the next question now needing to be asked: At the end of the month while at the UN, will the current President of The United States – Barack Hussein Obama (PBUH) – attend 4:00pm prayers with his typical Muslim brethren ?

    Inquiring minds want to know.

    I guess Obama’s apology didn’t go over very well. He’ll just have to grovel more — things will improve then.

    The Egyptian daily Al-Ahram reports that the film was produced by US-based Coptic-Christian Egyptians and set to screen during the anniversary of Sept. 11.

    “Egypt’s Coptic Orthodox Church and Evangelical Church, meanwhile, both released statements on Monday condemning the film, stressing that it did not represent Egypt’s Christian community,” Ahram reports.

    I was right the first time, it was a film made by Coptic Christians.

    Again, the muslims causing havoc on 9.11 using the movie as their excuse.

    Stop giving these nations billions of our dollars!

  • Latin2

    So private citizens make a film about Muhamamd that NO ONE has heard of and Muslims attack our countries embassies and kill our people over seas?

    This shows that Islam is DANGEROUS HERE and over seas.
