The blog-sphere is buzzing with a shocking unconfirmed report, originating from Lebanese based news website Tayyar, that Christopher Stevens, the US Ambassador to Libya was allegedly raped and dragged through the streets before he was murdered by Muslim extremists on September 11th.

The report originally cited the AFP news agency, however after AFP issued a denial saying “That report falsely quoted our news agency”, the website apologized, but said its still stands behind the report.

The report claims that “The U.S. ambassador to Libya was raped sexually before being killed by gunmen who stormed the embassy building in Benghazi”, the report also claims that Libyan security forces may have leaked the location of the safe house to the assailants.

An image from Arab TV, said to show the body of Ambassador Stevens.


  • They are animals, that is why I give them nothing. I keep them in Gaza, they will get nothing from me, not Jerusalem, not the Golan’s, nothing. They are animals.

    • I remember Imad, in the video’s, Buckley dribbling, and when Imad showed the item he was raped with he would scream uncontrollably. Imad is dead. They are animals, we will give them what we want, that is it, if they don’t like it, bad luck.

  • What safe house is this article talking about? “The report also claims that Libyan security forces may have leaked the location of the safe house to the rioters.” Am I the only one who noticed this?

  • It is 9/29/12 and this story is still not verified and past on by only Right Wing Bloggers, therefore one can only assume the reports to be false until proven otherwise.

    • Obama let him died if he had been black the marines would have been there to protect him

    • Dr. Angele Van den Bossche

      In my long practice, I never saw a patient brought to the hospital or emergency room, in that way ….
      neither in Europe nor in Africa !

    • It is October, 27th. The story is “verified” and not only by the “right wing bloggers.” It’s on every news station…reports of being told to “stand down” on at least 2 occasions, O saying he gave no such order, and the CIA saying the same thing. SOMEONE isn’t being honest here. It is unlike our military to sit idly by as our citizens are being killed and drug around in the streets. This is disgraceful…how would you feel if that was your son, father or husband? You would be STEAMING mad, but you want to label this as a “Right wing report” Sickening.

  • “Go not abroad in search of Monsters to Destroy”

    We have no business getting invovled in other countries internal affairs,
    nor should our OWN govt be passing out Visas’ for 3rd world undesirables to fly into or settle in the USA.

    That solves virtually all our problems. Stevens had no business getting in the middle of primitive tribal squabbles in a chaotic land, and he trusted that these tribal primitives were his “friends” – he was wrong.

    We spend billions of american tax dollars to “liberate” people who did not want us there, despite the Repubs and Dems both demanding to drag us AGAIN into someone elses’ conflicts.

  • i waited for the info and maybe he wasnt dragged thru the streets BUT HE WAS ATTACKED AND KILLED ALONG WITH 3 OTHERS !!!! LETS NOT FORGET THAT !!! now with that said what do we do? let them get away with it …… or should we be rounding them up and taking care of business not waiting for them to go under ground and take 7 years to find them..

    • Pictures were sent to me on Gmail…showing Ambassador Stevens shirt ripped off…a terrorist was dragging him by his ankles thru the streets…dragger was holding cell phone in his mouth…then a shot of ambassador propped up in sitting position…looked semi conscious..bruised..battered…last photo the dragger had the ambassador slung over his shoulder like a sack of feed and parading thru the streets with mobs lining each side of street…shame on politicians not helping the ambassador and the 3 brave men driving to fend off attackers for 7 hours…obama off to Vegas…Hillary??? Congress?? the political system antiquated…self serving…decadent and so on and so on. Seems to be a total break down in all phases of american civilization….Now the silly generals and their toys….Kick out congress…install parlimentarian unicameral form …term limits…pay pensions perks and all the lovely stuff they have given themselves off the back of taxpayers….about 6000 years of Senators and Representatives sitting in the House and Senate …boring, silly double talk and teeth clicking shallow charlatans…Heaven help America.

  • Baron Rothschild

    Where are the Marines when we need them?

  • I just heard that the Ambassador had no security. If he did, they would have died with him. But they did not. It appears that the alleged “security team” was really a CIA team on a different assignment.

    • Blocked by the State Department-Really what for telling the truth, The State Dept should have reacted as quickly to the torture and murder of the victims in Bengahzi-Shame!!!

  • I believe what we will experience will soon be the beginnings of a “New Crusades” between Christians and Muslims worldwide. It only takes a spark such as this to convince “peace-loving” people to pick up their banner and start a “holy-war” on each side of the religious fence. It was predicted by Nostradamas and this surreal event will be the catalyst for a worldwide Armageddon in the middle east. Wait and see..

  • There was a day that people would have never thought of attacking America or an American. We were strong feared and respected.
    Today we have a person in govt that is endorsed by Putin himself and the Communist party …dont believe me goggle it …when our enemies support a sitting President that should deliver a clear message …unfortunately some people in our country are more focused on getting freebies from our govt.and being encouraged by our current administration..Our govt will meet this week with Muslims and the brotherhood but not Netanahyu his priorities are not correct for the good of our country … today we are told they has a three day warning about the attacks and did nothing ..shame on him ..

    • Concur with all, except the 3 days notice. Not sure it was that specific of a ‘notice’.

    • When was that day? Before 9-11 while Bush was in office, or perhaps before Lebanon while Reagan presided, or possibly you are refering to the pre-Pearl Harbor days. Idiot.

  • I would like the truth if possible…..Was Ambassador Steven’s dragged through the streets of Libya, tortured and sodomized before he died? I’m tired of the BS and want to know what happened…Romney can’t answer but the President can….and I don’t mean 2 years after the fact…Our Embassies have been breached and burned, school & private business burned and American’s are dead. Obama is on Letterman telling me how much he weighs and doesn’t know what the debt was when he took office. Then off to a $40,000 a plate fund raiser…..It makes me sick!!!!!

    • I agree with you VBLBC. He’s more interested in his narcissitic self.

    • i agree-there is more news about the CIA affair than there is/was on this tragedy on Ambassador Stevens.

      How would you like to be the family of Ambassador Stevens today, 11/14/12, hearing more news about affairs than the death of your son?

  • Wake up sheepole the apology tour didn’t work for obama.restore American and our values in 2012

  • If I were President – I would make one thing perfectly clear to these f-ing Muslim murderers. I would vow to any Muslim terrorist that if they harm ONE American citizen – The USbwould hunt them down – kill them then cover their dead buried bodies with pig intestines.

    • Bengahzi victims blood is on Obama, Clinton & the liberal media’s hands. Obama has given permission for every radical terrorist gang (oxymoron) to kill every American citizen in embassys around the world. If Obama wins this election woa be to what is left of America and our citizens. People are blind to the fact that Obama is anti American, pro muslim brotherhood and is sitting by waiting for the destruction of the USA

  • Is this how followers of a supossedly peace loving religion, founded by one of the greatest prophets the world has ever known, behave ? Like sub-humans ?

    • Who was it that said “an eye for an eye”? We must be careful about judging others and casting stones, especially when we live in glass houses. Judiasm, Christianity and Islam are all rooted in the same origins, and are seen as progressions that came forth from each other. The all promote tolerance, love, peace, etc. However all 3 have extremists that fear extinction by the others and manifest this in agression towards the others. Not all Muslims act like this, just like not all Catholics hate all Protestants, and not all Jewish people hate Chistians, etc. History has pitted religious based wars, which were in actually nations/empires USING religion as a rallying cry to further another cause (land acquisition, wealth, ego, etc). Know that what you see on TV is a minority position and dont let it BAIT the American passion against it – that is the intention of a few.

    • I do not think the scimitar is a symbol of love and compassion

  • Right. So you’d prefer to believe an unsourced story from a random website which has already been proven wrong in quoting the AFP (and then do an interestingly deceptive cropping job on that photo of Stevens in a fireman’s carry) than believe that maybe the entire thing is a total lie.

    Let me help you out here:

    Hey, look! It’s those same guys – you know, the ones you’re pretty heavily implying sexually assaulted our ambassador. Except in the video, they are carefully extracting him from a building, checking him for injuries, rejoicing in the fact that he’s still alive, and then picking him up to carry him to the hospital. Doesn’t fit in with your narrative as well, but hey, you don’t seem to be that fussed about aligning facts.

    • And you are using the NY Times as your resource to validate your opinion? I would just as soon believe Obama, and I never believe him. These barbarians are capable of any heinous act – all in the name of Allah.

    • The one thing I question is how clean the person in this video is. Makes me wonder how long it took the government to create it? That does account for why it took so long to get it out

      • Pictures were taking by local populace using personal cell phones. The Ambassador was oevrcome by smoke in the attack (while trying to hide in safe house/room. He wasnt beaten, shot, etc. He was taken by locals to a local doctor who tried to revive him, to no avail. These pics are of him being dragged through the street, they are people trying to help him. You are perceptive to notice his clean appearance, but should know that the government isn’t going to “create” this. If they want to incite the American public outrage, they would make it a lot worse (and if they wanted to appease this would be headline on CNN).

        • Over the years there have been all sorts of conspiracy theories. If you were saving a wounded ambassidor would you be taking pictures and jumping up and down with joy?
          No conspiracy here. Just reality.

        • Why is his belt buckle undone?

  • Sherrill Holley

    I have a question for anybody and everybody in the world who doesn’t believe American Ambassador Chris Stevens was RAPED and dragged through the streets before being MURDERED IN COLD BLOOD BY BARBARIAN MUSLIM TERRORISTS:


    • Why don’t you wait for the facts?

      • Why don’t you wake up idiot!

        • Who is the idiot – the one who listens to the ONE report, from an ARAB news-site, that says he was abused, or the one that waits for the facts from multiple reputable websites? Your slanted rage based on inaccurate information is just as bad, if not worse, than the muslims protesting at our embassies overseas. You are American extremists – maybe you shouldn’t be aloud to post or talk. You are the reasons that our freedoms are so precious and vulnerable – because you dont use them responsibly.

          • Good lord, Brian, do you mean to say that what we see on this photo is ambassador Stevens being tenderly transported to a hospital by concerned citizens?
            Can you deny the uncanny likeness of these images with those of Muammar Khadaffi being dragged dishevelled and bruised from his hide out in the sewers in the city where once he was supreme leader..?

            Incidently, if reality isn´t too much for your boy scout soul: pictures of the Libyan president being raped with a metal pipe are all over the internet. You do the math.

            Wake up, for crying out loud: this is what they do in Islamia when the mob gets it´s hands on an object of it´s obscene rage

            We must all hope the president of the US isn´t planning another tour of the islamic world anytime soon..His unmanly and incompetent reaction to the slaughter of his ambassador to a country the US has helped to rid of it´s tyrant may well have given the jihadists the impression that it´s open season in Dar el Harb where western dignitaries are concerned

            Just imagine the ecstacy of these sadistic thugs at the thought of dragging an American president through the arab street..

  • Obama’s reaction will be to demand that Jews not live in Israel.
