#rsrh Our ambassador to Libya was murdered in yesterday’s attacks.

This is his information.

John Christopher Stevens, Nominee for Ambassador to Libya, Department of State

John Christopher Stevens, a career member of the Senior Foreign Service, served as Special Representative to the Libyan Transitional National Council from March 2011 to November 2011.  Prior to this role, he was the Director of the Office of Multilateral Nuclear and Security Affairs.  From 2007 to 2009, he served as the Deputy Chief of Mission in Tripoli, Libya.  From 2006 to 2007, he was a Pearson Fellow with the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.  Previous overseas assignments have included: Deputy Principal Officer and Political Section Chief in Jerusalem; Political Officer in Damascus; Consular/Political Officer in Cairo; and Consular/Economic Officer in Riyadh.  In Washington, Mr. Stevens has served as Special Assistant to the Under Secretary for Political Affairs, Iran Desk Officer, and a Staff Assistant in the Bureau of Near Eastern Affairs.  Prior to joining the Foreign Service, Mr. Stevens was a Peace Corps Volunteer in Morocco from 1983 to 1985.  He holds a B.A. from the University of California, Berkeley, a J.D. from the University of California Hastings College of the Law, and an M.S. from the National War College.

At least three other Americans were also reportedly murdered yesterday: a consular staffer, and two US By Marines.  By all accounts, all four individuals died at their posts, doing their jobs.

That last part is in sharp contrast to President Obama, who has apparently been not doing his job since yesterday afternoon.  But he’ll be at a Nevada fund-raiser this morning! After all, Libya’s not a swing state.

    How is this not an act of war and why can I still not find a response from the president. Maybe we shouldn’t lead from behind next time there is an ill advised kinetic activity to depose a government immediately after it cooperates in giving up its nuclear program in order to secure oil for.France and Italy. You never saw this crap under Qaddafi.

    Mubarak was actually one of our few allies in the region. Sure, we had to pay him off but he was fully contented on the gravy train. Muslim Brotherhood’s stated intent is a one Muslim caliphate from Spain to Indonesia. Barack Obama should be able to look at a map and tell that Israel, Saudi Arabia and thus US interest are in the way. Maybe he was smoking choom during geography. Appeasement of radical Islam does not work.

    I completely blame President Obama for Ambassador Stevens’ murder.
