WASHINGTON — Violence in Benghazi, a major city in eastern Libya, is on the rise. Yet, the Reuters news brief, there was no mention of recent Benghazi history, such as the terrorist attacks last September 11th that killed four Americans.
Reuters reported that the most recent violence was the death of top commander of the Libyan military police force, who was shot and killed when he left his house to attend Friday prayers.
The security source who told Reuters said, “Several shots hit Ahmed al-Barghathi. He was brought to hospital but later died there”. Sadly, all Reuters could say was, “Benghazi in the restive east of the OPEC producer has been hit by a wave of violence by armed groups and radical Islamists.”
There was no mention of the disastrous and tragic death of four Americans in Benghazi when the U.S. consulate was attacked. One of the Americans was the American ambassador to Libya, J. Christopher Stevens, yet there was no mention of his death.
After one full year, nothing has been done regarding accountability for those that let four Americans die on September 11th, 2012. We at AIM are pushing forward with our Citizens’ Commission on Benghazi to search and find the truth.
