    I know this belongs in politics......
    Glen Doherty, 42, a former Navy SEAL, was one of four Americans killed -- including US Ambassador Christopher Stevens -- when protesters attacked the US consulate Tuesday in Benghazi, Libya. If we thought the situation could not get any worse...it just did.

    The guys who were killed all seem to be highly experienced in difficult diplomatic situations. I wonder if they were doing any spying, the local friends of islam party got word and then used the video as a pre text to stir up the ignorant masses against the us

    If this were an isolated incident I would be inclined to agree with you, but it seems to be some sort of coordinated attack with Egypt, and now of course everywhere else.

    Based on what I heard about the ambassador whom was killed, he seemed as far from a spy as you could get.

    If he were killed for being a spy, or even suspected of being a spy, the group responsible for killing him would be making a huge deal about it.

    Also being a highly skilled diplomat doesn't help when an angry mob storms your embassy. It's not like the guy could appear at the front door and talk some sense into them

    The video had nothing to do with the attack in Lybia, and every embassy in the Middle East has a team of bad asses working there. Looks like this may have been a coordinated attack by Al-Queda.

    True. On the news this morning, they were saying how the Libya attack almost makes sense because there is no formal government there right now, just a bunch of animals running around (they call them the Muslim Brotherhood). But in Egypt, where there were protests in front of that embassy every day for months, the security forces all of a sudden disappeared. They successfully held back protesters every single day until 9/11/12

    It's an EMBASSY! Of course spying is going on.

    If a bunch of Crips or skinheads killed an ambassador should said ambassadors country send battleships to sink fishing boats. Overreaction is afoot more billions down the toilet

    Really.

    Unless you're advocating for a genocidal massacre of Libya, you're a pussy/coward/anti-American... :rolleye2:
