Video: Ambassador Chris Stevens hoped for ‘free, democratic, prosperous Libya.’

posted at 12:01 pm on September 12, 2012 by Mary Katharine Ham

U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens, 52, and three other Americans were murdered Tuesday in Libya during attacks on the consulate in Benghazi. Reports say Stevens and his staff may gone to the consulate from the embassy in Tripoli evacuate staff or for a 9/11 commemoration ceremony. The consulate was besieged by attackers ostensibly incensed by a movie critical of Islam they say insulted the Prophet Mohammed.

Before being appointed ambassador in January 2012, Stevens had hailed the uprising of the Libyan people and served, risking his life, as a U.S. envoy to the opposition during that fight. In a State Department video introducing his appointment, Stevens expressed a desire to “work together to build a free, democratic prosperous Libya.”

“I was thrilled to watch the Libyan people stand up and demand their rights,” he says in the video. Pictures of Libyan protests during the uprising flash across the screen interspersed with photos of a grinning Stevens greeting Libyan citizens.

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton paid tribute in her statement:

I had the privilege of swearing in Chris for his post in Libya only a few months ago. He spoke eloquently about his passion for service, for diplomacy and for the Libyan people. This assignment was only the latest in his more than two decades of dedication to advancing closer ties with the people of the Middle East and North Africa, which began as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Morocco. As the conflict in Libya unfolded, Chris was one of the first Americans on the ground in Benghazi. He risked his own life to lend the Libyan people a helping hand to build the foundation for a new, free nation. He spent every day since helping to finish the work that he started. Chris was committed to advancing America’s values and interests, even when that meant putting himself in danger.

Raised in Northern California, Stevens spent two years in Morocco after graduating from University of California Berkeley, teaching English in the Peace Corps, It was then he said he “fell in love with this part of the world.” His 20-year foreign service career took him on several tours to Libya, as well as Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Syria and Israel. He spoke Arabic and French.

Hillary and Stevens

From the Telegraph:

On April 5 2011 he arrived for his second tour in Libya. Stevens served as special representative to the Libyan Transitional National Council where he was sent to rebel headquarters in Benghazi, with the intention of forging stronger links with the Interim Transitional National Council, and intending to gain a better understanding of the various factions fighting the Gadhafi regime.

Stevens’ reports back to the US government are believed to have encouraged the American support of the rebel council, formally carried out in July 2011 by Obama administration.

Upon his arrival in April last year, Stevens became the highest-ranking US representative to travel to Libya since the uprising began.

Two of the Americans killed in Libya yesterday have yet to be identified because their families are still being notified, but Clinton paid tribute to Foreign Service Information Management Officer Sean Smith:

Sean Smith was a husband and a father of two, who joined the Department ten years ago. Like Chris, Sean was one of our best. Prior to arriving in Benghazi, he served in Baghdad, Pretoria, Montreal and most recently The Hague.

President Obama said Stevens’ “legacy will endure wherever human beings reach for liberty and justice.”

Stevens is the first U.S. ambassador to be killed in an attack since 1979.

Libya and Egypt were one of the more stable countries before Obama intervened.

Now they are ‘democracies’, and this.

It couldn’t happen during a more moronic American hoax for a president. He is on their side, or he is an utter fool. Take your pick.

The ambassador is a sacrificial lamb in Obama’s big schemes for the muzzies.

Just shows what a HUGE DISASTER this is for barack. They can call it a “gaffe” all they want, but on the biggest foreign policy story of the year, Romney was standing in front of the blue curtain and the American flag answering questions, while barack and his fat, drunken secretary of state were running away from the press.

Who looks presidential? This is a DISASTER for barack’s re-election hopes, so of course they’re going to spin it to be bad for Romney. I hope and hope and hope that Romney comes back hard and angry: “An American ambassador was murdered and his body was dragged through the streets of Libya by a violent anti-American mob, and YOU PEOPLE want to talk about whether or not I came out TOO SOON in condemning that?! THIS is the news you see in this?! My God, what is wrong with you people?”

That is why it is important to learn about the people…to better understand what “rights” they might want and determine if that is a good or bad thing.

It matters not where he acquired his education, what side his politics, he was an American in foreign service for 20 years who was murdered.

No, far from it. Your wholly less than compelling explanation fails to account for the Magic Negro’s complete inability to have a coherent foreign policy. Mr. Steven’s death, whether you choose to believe it or not, was entirely preventable.

What YOU don’t recognize is that they have NO fear of us. Hope you’re clear on that. But, I’d be willing to bet that since you live an insular life that you would have an opinion without a clue anyway.

Fascinating. The Liberal Trollers have descended upon us…eager to squash this story. But…sadly for them…thanks to the “New Media”…the American Public are informed…and not listening to them and their messiah.

his fault was that he shat his own bed last night with his ill-considered attack on the prez.

sesquipedalian on September 12, 2012 at 12:36 PM

No, he didn’t. It was the best thing he’s done in days, maybe weeks. He nailed the One and should keep going. Yer idiot is a good in chief. He got caught in Lybia and Egypt while he wished to focus on long dead Osama and Syria/Iran. Couldn’t be more ironic, all of it.

this is the problem with you wingnuts. you say nutty things, and that poor sod mitt feels compelled to repeat your ravings verbatim in communiques and at press conferences, and the world outside your cocoon just shakes its collective head.

The leftist latrine waves are getting bigger. It’s always a clear indicator of their fear factor. Desperado.

sweetie, nobody said that those events are romney’s fault. his fault was that he shat his own bed last night with his ill-considered attack on the prez.

sesquipedalian on September 12, 2012 at 12:36 PM

Cuz Romney didn’t support the muslim brotherhood, while ignoring their propensity to, you know, kill americans after they were done killing their own people.

Wow,I must say, the fragrance of fear coming from the Obama turd gargling Trolls today is amazing sweet nearly to the point of intoxicating. For the Obama turd gargling Trolls

Sickening and, sadly, entirely foreseeable. This didn’t have to happen.

he gave his life for his country you idiot.

You couldn’t be more wrong and stupid.

CNN

Tuesday’s attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, was planned in advance, and the attackers used the protest outside the consulate as a diversion, U.S. sources told CNN Wednesday.

Thank you, Mary Katharine.

I heard the news on my drive into work this morning. I haven’t felt right since.

As a conservative who’s old enough to remember the Iran hostage crisis, I should be able to muster at least an “I could have told you so,” but I just can’t. I’m gutted. My heart goes out to the Ambassador’s family and the families of the other murdered Americans.

So to be clear, are you on the troll’s side, or do you just disagree with my language and/or my belief that Stevens served his country?

the repulsive, spineless panderer doesn’t stand for anything, you should know that well by now, having hated on him until he became your nominee and true personal hero.

here’s another gift:

The Muslim world erupted in anger on Friday over caricatures of the Prophet Muhammad published in Europe while the Bush administration offered the protesters support, saying of the cartoons, “We find them offensive, and we certainly understand why Muslims would find these images offensive.”

sesquipedalian on September 12, 2012 at 12:44 PM

sesquipedalian on September 12, 2012 at 12:06 PM

Idiot, he didn’t give his life for anything.

His life was taken by 7th century animals.
