Photos of U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens Dragged Through the Streets-
Embassy Attack Was an
Act Of Terrorism -
Summary of the eRumor: Two photographs taken of U.S.
Ambassador Christopher Stevens during the September 11, 2012 attack on
the U.S. Consulate Outpost in Benghazi, Libya are circulating in forwarded
emails. They allege that Ambassador Stevens was dragged through
the streets in a preplanned attack while the Obama Administration has
called it a protest over an Anti-Muslim video.
The photos are real and were
taken on September 11, 2012 from a video after Ambassador Stevens was found in the wreckage of
the sacked Benghazi Outpost. The photos and video have
been misinterpreted into something other than what they documented, a
According to a
September 18, 2012 article by the Associated Press, "Libyans tried
to rescue Ambassador Chris Stevens, cheering 'God is great' and rushing
him to a hospital after they discovered him still clinging to life
inside the U.S. Consulate, according to witnesses and a new video that
emerged Monday from last week’s attack in the city of Benghazi."
Eleven years after the terrorist attack of the
World Trade Center in New York, there was an attack on the U.S.
Consulate Outpost in Benghazi, Libya where U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens
along with three members of his U.S. embassy staff were killed. Shortly
after that violence erupted around the world at the sites of various
Was this a Preplanned Attack or a Protest of an
Anti-Muslim Video on YouTube?
At first, there were questions asking if this was a preplanned act of terrorism or a protest to an
anti-Muslim video on the Internet.
President Obama issued a statement about the deaths of Stevens and
members of his staff and told the American public that an increase in
security measures would be taken to protect U.S. Embassies and members
serving in the U.S. diplomatic corps. Three
days later Press Secretary Jay Carney, a briefing to reporters, denied any act
of planned terrorism saying that the protests were in reaction to an

A poorly produced video
called Muhammad Movie
that depicted the life of founder of Islam was posted last July on the
popular video sharing website, YouTube.com,.
We found other samples of the same video titled
Innocence of Muslims.
It portrayed the Islamic prophet in a
focusing on his sexual promiscuity and violent past.
The video also showed the persecutions Jews by Muhammad as was as
persecution of Christians in modern times. With all the
negative videos and commentaries on the World Wide Web about
Islam, could a fourteen minute video actually spark Muslims to
react violently at U.S. Embassies around the world?
Reports conflicting to the White House press statement allege that the attack was a strategically planned
operation by Al Qaeda who called for the killing of American diplomats
and used the protest of the video as a cover for their mission.
In a September
16, 2016 article by Fox News, Libyan President Mohammed el-Megarif
told NPR in an interview that his country had been infiltrated by
foreigners over the past few months and said, "We firmly believe that
this was a precalculated, preplanned attack that was carried out
specifically to attack the U.S. Consulate."
September 19, 2012 article Fox News reported that
Intelligence sources told them that the
the news network that they were convinced that the deadly attack on the
U.S. Consulate Outpost in Benghazi, Libya, was directly tied to Al Qaeda
and was led by a former Guantanamo detainee. The article
also said, "in the face of these conflicting accounts, Carney on Tuesday
deferred to the ongoing investigation and opened the door to the
possibility of other explanations."
It took just over a week after the
incident for the White House to finally admit that Americans and been
attacked by terrorists.
September 20, 2012 article Fox News reported that the White House
"conceded Thursday that it was 'self evident' that it was an act of
terror -- an admission that took eight days for any administration
official to make." Press Secretary Carney told reporters,
""It is, I think, self evident that what happened in Benghazi was a
terrorist attack. Our embassy was attacked violently and the result was
four deaths of American officials. That is self evident."
The White House announcement came after National Counterterrorism Center
Director Matt Olsen confirmed the act of terrorism during a Senate
hearing on September 19th saying, "Yes, they were killed in the course
of a terrorist attack on our embassy."

are pictures you will not see in the Obama media. Our US Ambassador to
Libya being dragged through the streets before being murdered. Here is
our American Ambassador, J. Christopher Stevens, diplomat, father,
husband, and American Citizen, being dragged through the streets of
Benghazi , and your President does NOTHING! . . . except go to Las Vegas
for a fund raiser, plus two more today.
To most Americans this is an act of war. To our president it's just
another act of office violence like Fort Hood . He and the Secy of State
have already apologized and will soon send them another $6.3 Billion in
foreign aid. This is as sad as it gets.
