    Gunmen attack Corinthia Hotel in Libya....

    This is ongoing at the moment.....CNN is reporting 3 are still in the hotel and there has been, exchange of fire.


    Gunmen who attacked the luxurious Corinthia Hotel in Tripoli, Libya, on Tuesday have killed at least two Libyan security personnel and injured three others, a security spokesman said. Three gunmen are still holed up in the hotel, Essam al-Naas, the spokesman for the joint security operations room for Tripoli, told CNN.

    An online group that supports ISIS said online that the attack was carried out in the name of Abu Anas al-Libi. Tuesday's attack began when militants detonated a car bomb in the parking lot of the hotel.

    Guests have been evacuated to safety, but it's not clear if there are additional casualties.....snip~

    Yeah the MS media didn't want to headline it.....that it was ISIS Supporters. Not after they have been putting out the Narrative that ISIS suffered a defeat from the Kurds. Hence their headline playing with the terminology. Gunmen and later going with Militants.

    Even more evidence that our foreign policy has left in its wake a series of disasters all over the region.

    Libya is a major disaster already happening. Another failure by BO and Hillary. ISIS gained an entire city here. So its not just Mosul and their increase inside Syria.

    Not to mention we have AQ and Ansar al Sharia all operating out of here. Benghazi declared themselves an Islamic Emirate too.

    Terror flourishes under Obama-I wonder if this will qualify as workplace violence or a manmade disaster? Hopefully no westerners are harmed.

    Well it's also partly a Hillary disaster. One she doesn't want to talk about. Let alone Benghazi.
