RAPHIC PHOTOS ALLEGEDLY SHOW ‘ATTEMPTS TO RESCUE' U.S. AMBASSADOR (CONTENT WARNING)

A graphic photo has surfaced online allegedly showing the "attempts to rescue" U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens in the final moments of his life after a mob attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya.

The image, posted on Arabic news channel AKNN News' Facebook page, shows a man identified as the ambassador severely wounded with blood on his face. It appears he's being carried away by two men in the midst of a crowd.

The Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) in Washington, D.C. translated the Arabic caption on the photo for TheBlaze as: "Attempts to rescue U.S. ambassador to Libya after a raid targeted his country's consulate in Benghazi in condemnation of a movie depicting the Prophet Muhammad."

Both President Barack Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton made reference to Libyans carrying Stevens to the hospital after the attack.

Funny I am not coming up with anything that resembles the remarks you made.  So until you can provide a link to your source I will say you are pulling crap out of your a$$.

You go off an hug your DH and kids. 

Quoting PeeperSqueak:

I should have known a sigh wouldn't work for me.....double standard and all....you know......sigh

Let your fingers do the walking.....I'm listening to the radio. Going to hug my dh and kids, have a good  day.


Quoting Peanutx3:

I asked the same thing.  She doesn't have any, she just sighed at me.  LOL

Quoting _Kissy_:

source?

Quoting PeeperSqueak:

It is being reported that the Libyan soldiers were working in cooperation with the killers.  They were told where Chris Stevens was moved too....the supposedly safe place and that is where they killed Chris Stevens and the others. Then paraded him carried upside down like that to the hospital. 

Also reports saying this was all well planned out

Or as one news source puts it an "Arab winter" is more like it and more of our people are killed.

For those who want the source, it's already posted, so go look for it.

Same thing was on NPR.

Quoting idee:

 So if you don't watch the news you don't know what's happening. Just letting you know as far as I know peeper is telling the truth.


 


Quoting Peanutx3:


I have no doubt it was planned.  I would like for Peeper to provide the source for her comments below.  Right now I really don't trust what either CNN or Fox News reports. 


Quoting idee:


 It is on the CNN and FOX NEWS channels and you may still here some of it. The reporter said that soldiers were just standing by watching. In Hillary's speech she blame, "a small and savage group". RPG's were used to attack the counselate. This was planned.


Quoting Peanutx3:


How about providing the links to those reports?

I'm still not seeing where it is being reported that Libyan soldiers were involved.  I see that militants were involved but not Libyan soldiers.  So if you see an article stating that I would really like to read it.  Thank you.
