    Re: Gunmen attack Corinthia Hotel in Libya....

    More on this. The alleged Government say they were trying to go after their Prime Minister.


    It was the deadliest attack on Western interests in Libya since the assault on the American diplomatic mission in Benghazi that killed Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens in 2012. It was also the bloodiest of several recent attacks by Libyans pledging loyalty to the Islamic State, raising fears that its example was further inflaming Libya’s violence.

    A group calling itself the Tripoli Province of the Islamic State, the extremist group that has seized territory in Syria and Iraq, issued a statement on social media taking responsibility for the attack just as it was beginning, and the timing added credibility to the claim. The group portrayed the assault as retaliation for the abduction last year by American commandos of a Libyan Qaeda operative, Nazih Abdul-Hamed al-Ruqai, also known as Abu Anas al-Libi.

    Opponents of the Libya Dawn coalition routinely refer to it as a terrorist collaborator, happy to cooperate with extremists like Ansar al-Shariah, the Benghazi group linked to the killing of Ambassador Stevens, or the Islamic State, also known as ISIS or ISIL. In a statement, the Libya Dawn government in Tripoli called the attack an attempt to assassinate its prime minister, Omar al-Hassi, who resides in the hotel but evacuated safely as the attack began.....snip~

    Group Linked to ISIS Says It’s Behind Assault on Libyan Hotel.....


    Four or five gunmen shouting “God is great” stormed the hotel, the Corinthia, in the early morning, witnesses said. The attackers fired their guns into the lobby, battling guards and indiscriminately shooting at civilians, according to witnesses, news reports and people in contact with associates inside the hotel.

    Officials said at least five of those killed were foreign visitors. The State Department confirmed that an American had been killed, and witnesses said he was a former Marine working in security.

    Militants claiming allegiance to the Islamic State said they were responsible for an armed assault on a luxury hotel that killed at least eight people here on Tuesday, the most significant in a string of terrorist attacks against Western interests and government institutions in the capital since the ouster of Col. Muammar el-Qaddafi more than three years ago.....snip~

    It's good at least to know the NY Times....can actually do some reporting for a change. While showing why BO and his followers want to avoid anything they can about Libya.

    Lybia and Syria is what happens when you elect a unqualified candidate with a radical agenda to lead the Nation.

    Unreal. His Foreign Policy motto is " dont do stupid **** ".....

    Its like our Nations being run by a bunch of idiot Frat boys.


    Mornin' Fenton. Well basically its due to ABC, NBC, and CBS.....not really giving any coverage while this was going on. Although they sure jumped on the bandwagon with the Incident down in Australia with that guy running into a Chocolate Shoppe.

    10 dead here was the final count.

    Re: Gunmen attack Corinthia Hotel in Libya....

    This is what they came up with about the American that was killed.


    Former U.S. Marine Killed by Islamic State’s Tripoli ‘Province’.....


    The American killed in the attack has been identified as David Berry. According to the New York Daily News, Berry is a former U.S. Marine who worked as a security contractor for Crucible, LLC. The company’s web site says that Crucible “provides high-risk environment training and global security solutions to employees of the U.S. Government, NGOs, and multinational corporations who live and work in dangerous and austere locations worldwide.” The company has not identified the client Berry was working for at the time of his death.

    The Islamic State, an al Qaeda offshoot that controls much of Iraq and Syria as a self-declared “caliphate,” announced the establishment of several “provinces” in North Africa and the Middle East in November of last year. The group’s provinces are more aspirational than real, as none of them controls much territory.....snip~
