Video: Amateur Footage Shows Libyans Dragging Ambassador From Consulate

Posted within the last 24 hours, Amateur footage from the US consulate in Benghazi shows Libyans pulling Ambassador Stevens from the building.

Although a number of outlets are asserting that Stevens was already dead, perhaps in an effort to undercut reports that he was sexually assaulted before death, the New York Times offers the following partial transcript of the Arabic speakers in the above video:

“Bring him out, man! Bring him out,” another says.

“The man is alive. Move out of the way,” others shout. “Just bring him out, man.”

“Move, move, he is still alive!”

“Alive, Alive! God is great,” the crowd erupts, while someone calls to bring Mr. Stevens to a car.

But another observer believes that the ambassador was already dead.
