Our lying State Department says that the 4 were augmenting our Tripoli Embassy security.

The Libyans point out instead that: “The episode appears to have taken place in a town just southwest of the historic Roman ruins at Sabratha and about an hour’s drive from Tripoli...”

American shot in Benghazi is allegedly CIA agent - Libyan sources

Sources within Libya, including intelligence sources within the Libyan Tribal system have reported that the American shot in Benghazi today Ronald Thomas Smith II was not a teacher as was widely reported. Tribal elders report that currently there are no foreign teachers employed in Libya and that Ronald Smith was in Tripoli meeting John McCain on Tuesday and Wednesday according to sources who were present during the meetings.

According to inside sources members of an Islamic extremist group called “the Council of Libyan Rebels” organized an ambush of Mr. Smith when he returned from Tripoli. The man responsible for the killing of Smith is reportedly one Wesam bin Hameed but this has not been corroborated.

Bin Hameed is associated with Ansar al-Sharia and is a well-known Islamic extremist terrorist leader and according to Libyan sources there are individuals who were eyewitnesses to Bin Hameed’s direct involvement in the killing of Chris Stevens. According to sources Mohammed Morsi was the head of Ansar Al Sharia and planned the attack on Chris Stevens, something that would implicate his involvement in the killing of Stevens.

(CNN) — Four U.S. military personnel are being held by the Libyan government, a senior U.S. Defense Department official told CNN on Friday.
.
The four are believed to have been detained by the ministry of the interior, said the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity.

It was not immediately known why the American personnel were being held. “We are seeking to further ascertain the facts and ensure their release,” said the official.

The four were in Libya “augmenting security at the U.S. Embassy in Tripoli,” the official said.

What difference does it make?
It makes no difference at all.

The Libyans should feel free to saw their captives head off because there will be no protest or retribution from the Obama/Democrat Party regime that is currently snuffing out the life of the American republic.

That's an awful thing to say, but I think it's the truth.
Obama and his communist Democrat Party don't car a whit about American military personnel or for that matter the defense of USA.

I have to wonder if these four guys aren’t witnesses to Benghazi and Libya is “holding” them on orders from obama to keep them from talking. And somehow the word got out that they’re being held. Now the white house is trying to come up an explanation.
