Who killed US Ambassador in Libya?
The fact cannot be denied that none among those killed in Benghazi received bullet or grenade wounds and died as a result of fear-phobia and suffocation due to smoke. Arab witnesses at the site of incident narrated stories that all the American security and intelligence personnel ran away from the scene leaving the poor Ambassador and a few others alone to take refuge in Safe House, which was especially designed to carry out clandestine operations and served as hideout for agents. However, before they could muster up enough courage to reach to their car they fainted. The video clips also showed that none of the protesters set on fire Consulate or Safe House in Benghazi.
It is quite encouraging to note that Libyan security forces were trained enough to ensure evacuation of all the Consulate officials. However, Ambassador and some others, who were not from the diplomatic corps, flee to hideout. The fire set by Marines in Consulate produced a lot of smoke which did not allow another team of US marines to evacuate Ambassador and US nationals. So there is no lapse on the part of Libyan security forces, which is also evident from the video footages over Internet. In this regard, US President also confirmed, “Libyan security personnel fought back against the attackers alongside Americans. Libyans helped some of our diplomats find safety, and they carried Ambassador Stevens’ body to the hospital.” One wonders, the American guards and Marines on security duty flee the consulate so how can they fight alongside Libyan?
According to another local guard, the US Marine Guards themselves set the Consulate on fire, after they analyzed the situation was getting out of control. He disclosed on the condition of anonymity that other than the personnel from diplomatic corps, Consulate in Benghazi was housing at least 32 illegal American, who were involved in arms and terrorist training to Libyan groups.
Due to the same reasons, Libyan Security forces failed to control foreign sponsored armed men who took part in last year’s uprising against government and convince them to lay down their weapons. He also disclosed that when the protesters had even not started scaling the walls and gates of the consulate, Marine started executing emergency plan for the destruction of all classified material and set the basement and other places on fire. The very act created smoke and choked the atmosphere, which caused deaths. If we recall, a similar situation arose when the North Koreans crossed over the 38th parallel in 25 June 1950. Marines were sent to destroy Embassy motor pool to prevent their possible use. The Embassy staff screened and burned classified material. The amount of material was enormous so the Marines used furnaces in the Embassy basement. The drama at Benghazi, Cairo and elsewhere, which gained momentum and attracted other Muslims to protest, should not remain as a riddle. On the first hand, United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon announced the appointment of Mr Tarek Mitri, a Lebanon Christian, as his new Special Representative and Head of the United Nations Support Mission in Libya (UNSMIL) on 12 September 2012. Mr Mitri is deadly against Egyptian Muslims and Muslim Brotherhood. He openly expresses his view that they do not particularly care for the basic rights such as religious freedom. The other event is election of new Prime Minister of Libya, as Mustafa Abushagur who was a professor at University of Alabama in Huntsville from 1985 until 2002 and is very dear and near to Washington.
One wonders, Washington has developed a habit of blaming everyone on the basis of their association with Islam. US has openly claimed that even if they have ability to block all the blasphemous films form Internet, they will not do so in order to facilitate American tradition of free expression which is enshrined in their constitution and law.
