Ambassador Chris Stevens Dragged through the Streets(graphic photo)

Ambassador Chris Stevens was killed during the assault on the US consulate in Benghazi

A graphic picture has emerged online of Libyan civilians dragging the unconscious body of Chris Stevens, the US ambassador who was one of four diplomatic staff killed during an attack on the American consulate in Benghazi.

The picture appears to show the civilians dragging Stevens through the streets in search of help, after the attack which ultimately killed him as well as three other staff, including information management officer Sean Smith.

Although the precise circumstances of Stevens’s death remain unclear, it is thought that 52-year-old Stevens went to the US consulate in Benghazi a few hours after the initial attack on the compound.

Reports suggest that Stevens, Smith and their bodyguards were attacked in their car. The ambassador eventually died of suffocation.

The attack was prompted by the release of an Islamophobic film entitled Innocence of Muslims, which was produced in the US state of California and directed by Israeli-American Sam Bacile.
The US secretary of state Hillary Clinton has expressed “profound sadness” over the Benghazi attack, while President Barack Obama said he had ordered “all necessary resources to support the security of our personnel in Libya, and to increase security at our diplomatic posts around the globe”.

In a White House statement, Obama called Stevens a “courageous and exemplary representative of the United States”, adding: “I strongly condemn the outrageous attack on our diplomatic facility in Benghazi.”

Nato’s secretary general Anders Fogh Rasmussen decried the attack,saying that “such violence can never be justified” while welcoming “the Libyan president’s condemnation and condolences and his pledge of his government’s full cooperation.”

Stevens, who spoke Arabic and French and had already served two terms in Libya, was confirmed as America’s ambassador to the country earlier this year.

He joined the Foreign Service in 1991, spending his career at posts in Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Syria.

Stevens, 52, reportedly went to the US consulate in Benghazi on Wednesday morning to check the damage done overnight by armed militants protesting against an Islamophobic film entitled Innocence of Muslims produced in California, US.

His car was attacked, killing him and two bodyguards. Stevens reportedly died of suffocation during the attack.

The circumstances of his death remain unlear.

“The official said the ambassador and three other staff were killed when gunmen fired rockets at his car,” an unnamed official told Reuters.

      Yes this looks like they were such humanitarians while carrying him to the hospital. This is how you show compassion and care in regard to life on the way to the hospital. Rumor has it the men who touched him were avoided as they had handled a pig. Nice hey. Keep believing the lies of MSM. They twist the truth to their benefit.

    Don’t the attackers know that they are proving their detractors have a point every time they use violence? What were they hoping to do? cause fear? They don’t know us too well if that is the case…they just angered us.

    “The attack was prompted by the release of an Islamophobic film…” — No, the Libyan attack along with Cairo’s was preplanned in order to celebrate 9/11/01. The film was used as a distraction in order to make their demonstration look like a typical protest.

    “The attack was prompted by the release of an Islamophobic film …” — No, this was not prompted by the film. The Cairo AND Libya attacks were in “celebration” of 9/11/01. The excuse of the film was a distraction to make the demonstrations look like typical protests.

    Islamophobic???? There is nothing to fear from the religion of peace …This pic proves it.

  7. anonymous permalink

    Yeah, Islamics are saying the attack is a result of some movie. Rather, it was timed to relate to 9/11. Those people deserve death. They are lower than slime.

    Linda – YOU are a PIECE of shit

    • OK why.There are pictures of him and 1 marine being sodomized. Do you think this being too kind to the terrorist.The families have likely seen the picture which i got from CNN.I guess they are too.Huh?
      Big take from this is Obama knew this was planned and did nothing.Why don’t you check al jazeera who aired the truth the day after Ambassador Stevens was killed that the current government is covering up? Try googling ”Ambassador Stevens Diary CNN” And read about Stevens concerns and requests for security.He had to hire the guys that were killed with him for his own security because Obama won’t put armed marines in sight for protection,Lady that is what a piece would do!

  11. Pull ALL our troops HOME and let every other country and their people be responsible for themselves. America fought for its freedom. America has come to the AID of the world over and over,
    We are told we should not be policing the world and the efforts and deaths-tourture- of Our service men and women is unappreciated and we are vilified. The rhetoric is anti-American.
    We need to PROTECT our OWN. I does not matter who is saying what…. When we no longer ‘police the world’, I can imagine that will also be looked as being anti-American.

    We will never please everyone. Stop using our son/daughters as pawns.
