Muslims tortured, killed, dragged U.S. ambassador’s body through streets

Jim Holt writes for Gateway Pundit, Sept. 12, 2012, that last night, radical Islamists attacked the US Consulate in Benghazi with rocket propelled grenades and machine gun fire. They killed Ambassador Christopher Stevens, then dragged his body through the streets.
The U.S. Consulate in Benghasi was destroyed.
The same consulate was bombed this June, but the Obama Administration did nothing.
CBS News reports that Wanis al-Sharef, a Libyan Interior Ministry official in Benghazi, said Ambassador Stevens, 52, and other officials were moved to a second building – deemed safer – after the initial wave of protests at the Benghazi consulate compound. But members of the Libyan security team guarding the U.S. consulate “seem to have indicated to the protesters the building to which the American officials had been relocated.” The mob then attacked that second building, and killed Stevens and three other Americans.
Al-Sharef said two U.S. Marines sent to Benghazi when the clash erupted were shot and killed by the well-armed protesters. It was not immediately clear whether the Marines were part of Stevens’ security detail. The American whose death was confirmed on Tuesday also died of a gunshot wound. He was identified by the State Department on Wednesday as Foreign Service Information Management Officer Sean Smith.
Front Page Magazine reports Ambassador Stevens was tortured: “The latest reports say that he did not die of gunshot wounds, but of suffocation, that would mean that he was likely manually killed.”
