[Publisher's Note: Lebanon News apparently misattributed the rape report to AFP. The Libyan Free Press also reported the rape, but its post is no longer available. The Examiner has recently published two related stories, "Did Hillary Clinton send a gay ambassador to Libya as intentional provocation?" and "Rep. Gohmert nauseated upon hearing reports of what they did to Ambassador Stevens." Both provide additional information on the ambassador's death.
Some reports are suggesting that the ambassador died of smoke inhalation in a safe room prior to his capture. However, if you look at the Ambassador's picture HERE, it appears that the Ambassador could still be alive. Note his left hand being held, without assistance, near his head. His condition in this photo suggests that he has been abused.
Until the autopsy by US authorities is complete (and assuming it's not scrubbed for political purposes), we may not know with any level of certainty what happened to the ambassador before his murder. Read about this HERE. What follows is the story we originally posted on the ambassador's murder.]
