didn't we coordinate and missle strike these folks to "freedom" just a minute ago? ag

ahram | An American staff member of the U.S. consulate in the eastern Libyan city of Benghazi has died following fierce clashes at the compound, Libyan security sources said on Wednesday.

"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, adding that he did not know the exact number of injured and could not say what the cause of death was.

An armed mob protesting over a film they said offended Islam, attacked the US consulate in the Libyan city of Benghazi on Tuesday and set fire to the building, witnesses reported.

The attack happened on the same day as a similar group of hardliners waving black banners attacked the US embassy in Cairo and tore down the US flag, but it was not immediately clear if the two incidents were coordinated.

The protests came on the eleventh anniversary of the attacks of September 11, 2001, when US cities were targeted by hijacked planes.

"Demonstrators attacked the US consulate in Benghazi. They fired shots in the air before entering the building," Libya's deputy interior minister, Wanis al-Sharif Sharif, who is in charge of the country's eastern region, told AFP.

"Dozens of demonstrators attacked the consulate and set fire to it," said a Benghazi resident, who only gave his name as Omar, adding that he had seen the flames and heard shots in the vicinity.

Contacted by AFP, a US State Department official in Washington said US officials were still seeking information about the situation in Benghazi.

Asked whether the attack in Libya and the earlier demonstration against the US mission in Egypt could be connected, the official said it was unclear yet if the protests had been coordinated.

Another Libyan witness said armed men had closed the streets leading up to the consulate, among them ultra-conservative Salafists.

The Libyan incident came as thousands of Egyptian demonstrators tore down the Stars and Stripes at the US embassy in Cairo and replaced it with a black Islamic flag, similar to one adopted by several militant groups.

Nearly 3,000 demonstrators gathered at the embassy in protest over a film deemed offensive to the Prophet Mohammed which was produced by expatriate members of Egypt's Christian minority resident in the United States.

US ambassador killed in Benghazi


"Chris was a courageous and exemplary representative of
the United States. Throughout the Libyan revolution, he selflessly served our
country and the Libyan people at our mission in Benghazi," Obama said in a
statement.


Blowback is a mother…


[To do their dirty work, NATO employed the most barbaric
marauders they could find. These Islamist mercenaries are programmed, sadistic
fighters – they have been on the battlefields in Iraq, Afghanistan and now
Libya. They have been hired many times over by NATO, who characteristically
plays all sides, and that is why they need to sprinkle stimulant powders on
their food - to keep them in killing mode. Shouting Allahu Akhbar, like robots,
they go from town to town, city to city, ransacking, beating, torturing, raping
and murdering, and then, in their crazed state, with inflated feelings of omnipotence,
they actually take footage of themselves committing heinous war crimes and post
them on youtube


Having black skin and asserting one's Africanity has become
a crime in the new Libya. Ethnic cleansing is continuing unabated. Every day
Black Africans from Libya and other parts of Africa are hunted down. Thousands
have been brutally tortured and executed. Rape of Black women is a favored
weapon of NATO's Islamists. Many of the female bodies found show signs of rape,
beatings and torture.] -- Gerald A. Perreira
