SAVAGES: Did Libyan Mob Sodomize U.S. Ambassador Before Killing Him?

Posted on | September 13, 2012 | 38 Comments

This report is so shocking that it seems impossible: According to one unconfirmed Arab-language account from a Libyan news agency, citing the French agency AFP, “the U.S. ambassador to Libya was raped sexually before killing by gunmen who stormed the embassy building in Benghazi.” It appears that the first English version of this account was published last night at the NOPC blog, then made its way to I Own the World, was picked up by Riehl World News, and then reported at the Washington Times by Kerry Picket.

My apologies in advance if I’ve gotten the sequence of events in any way confused. I learned of it via a Tweet from Michelle Malkin, and wish to emphasize — as Picket did in an update — that this is an unconfirmed report. Obviously a mob that would attack our consulate and kill four Americans is capable of anything, but we do not yet have confirmation that this reported atrocity actually happened.

Last November, journalist Mona Eltahawy described being sexually assaulted by Egyptian security forces after she was detained in Cairo, prompting me to remark:

A few weeks ago, discussing Libya on Red Eye, Kevin Williamson used the phrase “desert savages,” which is politically incorrect, but when we see savagery like this, who can say it isn’t also accurate?

The question remains valid, for obvious reasons.

UPDATE: One of the things about liberal bias is how it creates a bizarre disproportion in attitudes toward events. While mobs of enraged Muslims are now besieging U.S. embassies worldwide — in Yemen and elsewhere — the liberal media continues to unblinkingly accept the administration’s assertion that the real problem is not Islamic thuggery, but rather an obscure anti-Islamic video that no one in American had even heard about until Tuesday. Political correctoids are more offended by Kevin Williamson’s “desert savages” description of Libyans than they are by actual Libyan savagery. And we must remember, of course, that political correctness is ultimately about politics:

    Bear in mind that Khadafi was sodomized with a stick before his death, also. Quaint Libyan custom, it seems.

    And yet Obama says he’s going to work with the Libyan government to bring the killers to justice, which begs two questions:

    1) What Libyan government?
    2) How is that supposed to work if the killers were also working with what is passing itself off as Libya’s government?

    ” One of the things about liberal bias is how it creates a bizarre disproportion in attitudes toward events.”

    Just look at Whoopi Goldberg’s asinine “It’s not rape rape!” comment. Which I expect lefties to parrot in this case. Or maybe even offer advise to their comrades under the Islamic banner.

    Also not being reported anywhere’s. Ambassador Stevens was un-married, 51 year old male, from the San Francisco Bay area. The irony.

    What irony, exactly, is that?

    Say that he was gay. That’s an excuse for Muslim desert savages to rape him? That justifies it somehow?

    WTF do you think you’re trying to put across here?

    This is the story that has me wanting impeachment charges against Obama:

    They “trusted” the Muslim Brotherhood to protect them instead of the US Marines. I am furious.

    Based on the photo of him being carried by the guy with the cell phone between his teeth I’m skeptical. That photo appeared to be someone who died from smoke inhalation, especially due to his skin color and the smoke/soot around his face and mouth. Also his head and most of his torso was clearly visible and there was no indication of any sort of gunshot wounds,

    I concur. There are reports that one of the security guys managed to get several staff members out and returned for the ambassador but was driven back by thick smoke. It is logical to conclude he was suffocated by the smoke. Those entering the building after the fire burned out found his body. In the picture he is fully clothed and his pants and shirt are blackened somewhat by smoke/soot. I think they did not even know who he was. Any violence perpetrated was post mortem. Not that this in any way mitigates the outrage of the killings.

    There’s something to be said for a tactical nuke being used to turn the area around the Libyan Presidential palace into a glass topped parking lot. or as we used to say back in the day…”Nuke ‘em ’til they glow in the dark.”

    Do you think our standing in the world would go up after that? ;)

    I don’t care if he was sweeter than pink Christmas trees and a Liza Minnelli drag tribute show, he did not deserve what happened to him. There is no irony here. Thre are situations when a high school boy joke just doesnt’ cut it. This is one.

    Not the same government but this is still the country who insisted the released Lockerbie bomber was about to die at any second. I still don’t believe he’s dead. I country in chaos is a great place to just disappear and become someone else.

    Once again, the elite media have succeeded in persuading most Americans of their agenda. The problem is not Obama’s ineptitude, but Romney’s criticism of it. I’ve heard from too many people who buy this line of thinking. Even when they agree Obama is inept, they adopt the line that Romney was wrong to criticize him so.

    This sort of thing will lead inexorably to the president’s re-election. The rules have changed.

    Man oh Man, You Republicans have really outdone yourselves this time.

    I’d check Cheney, Rove, Preibus, McConnell and Boner’s alibies.

    These rapists, torturers, murderers have the blood of a million innocents on their hands.

    They sacrificed the lives of thousands of Americans for oil. Murdering an Ambassador to win the Presidential election?? They wouldn’t think twice!

    When a nuclear device goes off, the massive heat that it creates turns sand into glass . . . and levels everything around the blast ring (aka: the “kill zone”) into the flatness of a parking lot . . . Resulting in your basic “glass-topped parking lot”.

    Keep in mind that the Ayatollah Khomeini (of Carter’s ignominious fame) wrote about the acceptability of Mohammed’s followers sodomizing goats and sheep.
    Guess this wouldn’t be a stretch for them.

    Murdering a homosexual is equally heinous to murdering a heterosexual. The Ambassador’s sexual life is not the issue. The murderous savages who tortured, abused, and killed him—to say nothing of the society that seeks to justify such behavior because they didn’t like a ridiculous film clip—must be brought to justice with all the force and power the US can bring to bear.
    . Obama’s ludicrous attempt to justify the outrageous by blaming it on a film clip is the outrage. RABBI DR. BERNHARD ROSENBERG
