Blowback in Benghazi

14 months ago we reported on the lynching of a black man by a racist mob at the rebel HQ in Benghazi and HRI was amongst the first to document how race hatred was being deliberately stirred up in order to further the NATO/militarist agenda.

At the time we warned of the rebels, "amongst whom are clearly a significant faction equivalent to Al Qaeda /the Ku Klux Klan."

Today, in a classic example of blowback, we hear the US Ambassador to Libya, Chris Stephens, who boasted in this US Embassy video, of "having the honour to serve as the Libyan envoy to the Libyan opposition during the revolution (sic)" has been killed at the hands of an Islamist militia in Benghazi along wiht three other consular staff as the consulate was sacked and burnt down.

On this occasion the Benghazi mob were inflamed by a deliberately inciteful film produced by a self-described "Israeli-American businessman" called the "Innocence of Muslims" a trailer of which was uploaded to YouTube with Arabic subtitles. Such offence was taken that the militia turned the weapons against their suppliers, trainers and benefactors.

This should be a lesson to those who have been arming, funding, sending Al Qaeda fighters, supporting and propagandising for sectarian civil war under the false banner of "revolution" in Syria.

It should also be a lesson to those such as Human Rights Watch who advocate for human rights under the banner of NATO "humanitarian intervention" and who today are actively supporting rebel militias in Syria as they decapitate prisoners, terrorise the population, bomb hospitals

and use prisoners as unwitting suicide bombers.
