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.

    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.

    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.

    #22 “This wouldn’t have happened if Obama didn’t destabilize Libya by directly attacking the Libyan government without Congress’ consent.”

    Exactly.

    We had that one in hand. We had Iraq. Obama deliberately threw it away. That fool O’Reilly said we should not have fought there. Change of heart, donchaknow? Hussein was paying terrorist for every attack on Israel. He hated us with a passion. Clinton, Dem Senators and CIA told me he had WMD. When did they say differently?

    Iran protesters in street dying and Obama said not a word. Then he helped destroy the only one helping us in Egypt. No help for Syrians dying. Will not give Israel a line.

    We trained them to kill our boys in Afgan with our own guns on a steady basis. Obama threw the Doctor that helped us to the dogs while he beat his chest and ratted out Seal Team 6.

    Loves Russia and will have more flexability soon. Yep. His Union is in the streets, again.

    Does it seem that he always keeps people in the streets?

    Must do Letterman. No time for Israeli PM. Too Busy.

    What does Obama think? Does he think that when Iran gets it together they will keep it over there, leave us along (pssst, clue today 9/11) just because he says ‘sorry’, again??

    – has a Muslim Brotherhood sympathizer in the white house
    – thinks the Arab Spring was a good thing (like the Occupy movement)
    – has “no comment” on the teacher’s strike in Chicago for fear of ticking off his union thug buddies (despite his previous “I WILL MARCH WITH YOU” claims for the past 3 years!)
    – assumes you can talk nice to Imanutjob and he’ll do what you ask

    On the 11th anniversary of the 3,000 murdered Americans we are once again reminded that the War on Terror continues. Unlike most of us Americans Obama seems to have all the patience in the world for these terrorists. The Prime Minister of Israel however, who fears for his nation’s existance appears to be more than Obama can take.

    pardon the repetition.. /s/ (#13)

    [The Third Jihad exposes the war the media is not telling you about. It reveals the enemy our government is too afraid to name. One person who is not afraid to tell you the truth is Dr. Zuhdi Jasser, a Muslim American and former physician to the US Congress. After the FBI releases a radical Islamist manifesto describing how to destroy America from within, Dr. Jasser decides to investigate. The Third Jihad is about what he discovered. Interviews are conducted with radical Islamists in the US and the leaders trying to stop them, such as Rudy Giuliani, Clinton CIA Director Jim Woolsey, NYC Police Commissioner Ray Kelly, Senator Joe Lieberman, former Homeland Security Secretary Tom Ridge, and former terrorist group member Tawfik Hamid.]

    [Aimed at co-opting Americas foreign policy in the Middle East, a
    network including well-known American diplomats, congressional
    representatives, figures from academia and the think tank world –
    with ties to the clerical regime in Tehran – is directing the Obama
    Administration’s policy towards the Islamic Republic of Iran and
    the Middle East.”]

    [Today, in the White House, there are three members of the Muslim Brotherhood that influence Obama’s policy. One is Rashad Hassan of Indian origin, who is the American ambassador to the 52-nation organization of Islamic countries. Dahlia Mujahid who writes his speech, who comes from the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt. Just day before yesterday, another woman, an academic, was appointed in that circle. This is happening while we sit silent, and I say that as a liberal democrat, as someone who worked and campaigned for Barrack Obama.]

    The worst part of all this is that Obama wants Israel to go away until after the election because nothing must spoil his moment in the Sun. It doesn’t bother Obama that Iran could Nuke the little nation while they beg for assistance from a man who clearly doesn’t give a damn.

    State Department Website Panders To Radical Islamists

    [It is aiding and abetting the efforts of groups like CAIR and ISNA to anoint themselves representatives of all American Muslims – even though many Muslims want nothing to do with the Islamists.

    At a July 20th meeting on Capitol Hill with Farah Pandith, head of the State Department’s new office of representative to Muslim communities, Jasser criticized the 64-page booklet “Being Muslim in America” as an example of what is wrong. The publication is “like Pravda. It’s all about how Muslims in America are motherhood and apple pie,” Jasser said he told Pandith. “It’s like the Muslim community has no warts” or divisions.

    Nothing could be further from the truth, says Jasser. In presenting this monolithic, idyllic picture of Muslims, the State Department is ignoring inconvenient facts like the intra-Muslim debate over imposition of Sharia and Muslims’ larger relationship with non-Muslims, Jasser told IPT News.

    At the meeting, organized by Congressional Anti-Terrorism Caucus founder Rep. Sue Myrick (R-NC), Pandith reacted defensively when Jasser (accompanied by representatives of non-Islamist Muslim groups like the World Organization for Resource Development & Education and the Islamic Supreme Council of America) criticized the State Department for letting Islamists monopolize the debate.</i.]

    Where the hell are the Marines!!! United States Marines are the official guards of American embassies around the world. They even have a special MOS that is specifically for embassy duty. Have things changed regarding Marines guarding embassies abroad and I didn’t get the memo? Then again,it’s the ludicrously,rediculous ROE’s that probably had the Devil Dogs all leashed up and not being able to engage those Islamist freaks attacking what is considered SOVEREIGN U.S. SOIL!!!! I’M F@*KING PISSED RIGHT NOW!!!

  • this is no spontaneous attack, they were planning this to coinside with the anniversary of 9/11/2001. that muhammad film had nothing to do with it.

    i wonder if the person was killed with a gun supplied by our government.

    somewhere hillary is dancing with joy. smart diplomacy my —.

  • reaganmarine84

    UPDATE TO MY ORIGINAL POST: The Marine Corps times is reporting that the embassy staff in the Egypt attack had left the compound earlier because of warnings of the upcoming demonstration. Figures. What a sign of the times. Now we turn tail and run in the face of Islamic extremism. This will only encourage and embolden them now.

  • Oscar

    The Marines didn’t turn their tales and run. The Marine Security Guards are given strict rules of engagement which they must follow. The Marines are the last ones out of an embassy as they are the ones that ensure everyone makes it out safely. Obviously by the fact that none of the protestors were harmed, the Marines were not given authorization to fire up on the protestors. Or they were told to fire warning shots. I can assure you that if they were give the order to engage there would have been casualties. Secondly the objective in a situation such as this is to get the diplomats and civilian lives out safely. You have to remember that there are only 10 to 20 guards in an embassy usually. The fact is they are not going to repel an assault of a thousand protestors for weeks on end. Their job is to repel the assault long enough to evac everyone from the embassy. Any time there is an overwhelming show of force such as in Lybia that will be the case. If you are upset because the Marines did not return fire, I am almost certain the Marines are just as disappointed. The decision to refrain from returning fire is a political decision that occurs at a level hire than anyone at the embassy.
