I found this while searching for previous articles of the U.S. Embassy in Benghazi;



Gunmen Attack Tunisian Consulate In Benghazi

A group of armed gunmen stormed the Tunisian consulate in the Libyan city of Benghazi on Monday to protest against an art exhibition in Tunisia which they said insulted Islam, a security guard who works inside the building said.

Kamal al-Gehani said the group of about 20 young men carrying Kalashnikovs forced their way into the building and burned the Tunisian flag inside.

"They knocked on our gates and pushed into the building. It was a holiday so no one was working inside except security," he told Reuters.




On June 6 an explosive device was dropped from a passing car outside the offices of the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi. The blast that followed slightly damaged the gate in front of the building.

This sounds almost identical to what happened on this past 9/11. Obviously, minus the killing of diplomats.

In a different story:




In Libya's second-largest city, Benghazi, residents have been reflecting on the attacks on the American consulate building on Tuesday.

To many, the ferocity of the incident came as little surprise.

They blamed rising extremism, lawlessness and uncontrollable militias for the worsening security situation in Libya, almost one year after the downfall of Col Muammar Gaddafi.

So, it appears, the locals in Benghazi aren't exactly the nicest people, regardless of whether they are American or not.

Thoughts?

Peace.

Libya was one of the most prosperous nations before it was bombed into the stone ages.

Same old story. The US' plan is to destroy the nation, the infrastructure, the culture, all civility.

Exactly what they did to the Iraqis.

And for what? Because they were about to start trading their oil for gold.

Huh? What do you mean by that entire sentence because it makes no sense at all.

About the rising radicalism in Libya you can thank NATO and everyone involved with the "civil war". Gaddafi was hard on terrorists and imprisoned many of them. The "freedom fighters" that were saving poor poor Libya from the Big Bad Gaddafi were known terrorists, as was their leader. These terrorists freed all their terrorist friends during their "civil war" (wink) and now Libya is just as that article described....

Many call this attack on the embassy a result of blowback. I mean, I get that and I see where they're coming from but NATO armed and supported terrorists allowing them access to Libya so it's not really blowback when you invite them in, right? We all know what terrorist do and who they hate, right? Blowback? No, it's either a sinister move or a complete Dee Dee Deeee move and people need to be fired asap. Either way, we all know that no one is ever held accountable in Washington DC for these actions. So they're all really dumb or really evil, neither option is good for you.

The article you got here help show past attacks on embassy's that many of us don't know about and believe this attack was the first and only attack on any embassy in Libya. Thanks for bringing it to our attention.
