Assassination Attempt Against Italian Consul General In #Benghazi

CNN

Tripoli, Libya (CNN) -- Gunmen targeted the car of the Italian consul general in Benghazi, Libya, on Saturday as he was leaving the consulate, the latest in a series of attacks targeting foreign missions and security officials in the eastern city.

Consul General Guido de Sanctis was in an armored car pulling out of the garage when the gunmen pulled up alongside the vehicle and opened fire, the diplomat told CNN.

No one was injured.

Libyan police arrived immediately to secure the scene, said de Sanctis, who was unsure of who was behind the attack.

"It is difficult to make conclusions ... but if you look at the past months, some people are trying to send all the foreigners away," he said. "The British, the Red Cross and unfortunately the Americans -- now us? I was not sure we were on the list. I did not expect it at all."

Mama mia Guido de Sanctis, you are a kaffir and al-Qaeda doesn't want you in Libya. Is that so hard to understand? Oh wait, neither did the bronco bama administration and look where that dhimmitude got us. Four dead Americans and no one has been held accountable. Zilch, nada...

de Sanctis was damn lucky he was in a armored car, just sayin..

3 He probably wouldnt have been in an armoured car but for being standard and necessary for all Italian officials...IN ITALY , especially the South.

4 He was clearly only targeted because he made an anti-Mohammed film.

5 And the reason to have foreign missions in Libya is?????????????????????

When will the Western world learn to say F*** Em and leave them to their own self destructive devices? If we quit going to them, they will come to us. The internet. Printers and the telephone have made it unnecessary to staff these 3rd world shit holes.

7 The American Ambassador knew better than anyone else what the security situation was. You are blaming the victim

8 I thought you savages were supporting AL-CIADA (aka AL-QAEDA) in its war against the Muamar Qaddafi led government? Now, these AL-QAEDA guys, that the Western world was providing money, arms, and air support, are now targeting Western Embassy officials. What does that mean?

It means never do an evil, and never support an evil. If you do, that evil will haunt you forever.

10 #8. It means that in regards to foreign policy we suck. Probably listening and influenced by the wrong people. When I say we I don't count myself. I always knew what this Arab spring would bring. We shouldn't give a shit about what happens in the middle east. It's always been a cluster F*** and always will. Buy oil, sell Coca Cola and Mac Donalds and do it from far away.

11 Occam: The American Ambassador knew of the danger and repeatedly asked for assistance. No one's blaming the victim. Rather the incompetent administration who refused to address the problem and then attempt to cover that refusal up.

12 #9 Axel, I think it is Xlax, not Gheyrooster.
