2012 Benghazi Attack

Ambassador Stevens is Found

11 Sep, 2012

After the attack subsided and the Libyan guards finally evacuated the compound, the diplomatic mission was looted and vandalized. The vandals spray graffiti on the walls with words such as ‘testicles’ and ‘God is Great!’ and their names. One of the thieves in Building C started yelling and some men quickly went to the bathroom where they found a tall American on his back breathing very heavily in the bathroom. Some of the men did not want to help and accused the victim of insulting Islam. The other men carried the American’s body outside C villa, where they washed his ash-covered face before taking him to the main entrance where a group of men placed him in a car and headed towards the Benghazi Medical Center. 1 

According to the State Department, the hospital picked a cell phone out of his pocket, and they believe the just started calling numbers that were on the cell phone that had received calls, and that is how we got the information that he was there.2
