‘The Dawn of Libya’ Islamist militia storms US embassy compound in Tripoli, then has a pool party. The Obama Administration admits they did not know it had happened. Claim they found out a week later from press reports. The Building had been evacuated on July 26, then put under guard. Where are the guards?
An Islamist-allied militia group says it has ‘secured’ a U.S. Embassy compound in Libya’s capital, more than a month after American personnel evacuated from the country over ongoing fighting.
An Associated Press journalist walked through the compound Sunday after the Dawn of Libya, an umbrella group for Islamist militias, invited onlookers inside.
Windows at the compound had been broken, but it appeared most of the equipment there remained untouched.
A commander for the Dawn of Libya group said his forces had entered and been in control of the compound since last week.
The Dawn of Libya militia is deployed around the capital and has called on foreign diplomats to return now that the fighting has subsided.
Meanwhile, in the eastern city of Benghazi, heavy clashes broke out between the forces of a renegade general and Islamist fighters on Saturday, killing at least 10 people and showering the airport with rockets, medical and military sources said.
Libya is being racked by factional violence as the armed groups which helped topple Muammar Gaddafi in 2011 turn their guns on each other in a struggle to dominate politics and the country’s vast oil resources.
In Benghazi, forces of retired general Khalifa Haftar have been fighting Islamist brigades including Ansar al-Sharia, blamed by Washington for an attack on the U.S. consulate in September 2012 in which the U.S. ambassador was killed.

This appears to be another case in which the competence of the Obama Administration is called into question. Recently three press supporters of Obama, the Washington Post, New York Times and New Republic all wrote articles indicating that Obama is incompetent.

The “Arab Spring” that Obama welcomed had turned into a nightmare. The situation today is more deadly in Libya, Syria and Iraq than before what Obama referred to as the “Arab Spring”, the takeover of Arab and Mid-East countries by radical Islamists.
