Tripoli about to fall, U.S. embassy ready to be evacuated


Tripoli, Libya (CNN) — The U.S. military has doubled the number of aircraft standing by in Italy if needed to evacuate Americans from the U.S. Embassy in Tripoli, Libya, CNN has learned.

Thanks for the memory Hillary. Just a few reminders of your wizardy as Secretary of State. Who didn’t see this coming?

A decision to evacuate as violence in the Libyan capital grows is “minute by minute, hour by hour,” a defense official told CNN on Monday.

Fierce fighting swept across the city Sunday after armed men stormed the country’s interim Parliament. Sporadic bursts of gunfire and blasts could still be heard on the outskirts of the capital Monday evening.

The violence appeared to be some of the worst since the 2011 revolution that ousted longtime leader Moammar Gadhafi

Meanwhile, the Saudi ambassador to Libya announced that his country’s embassy and consulate in Tripoli closed Monday because of the violence, and the staff has left Tripoli, according to the official Saudi Press Agency. The sites will reopen when the situation stabilizes, Ambassador Mohammed Mahmoud Al-Ali said, according to the report.

Turkey took similar measures, shutting down its consulate in Benghazi, Turkey’s semi-official Anadolu news agency reported.

ED: With everyone leaving town, why are we still there? What do we have to have, another Benghazi????

U.S. aircraft arrive in Italy

Four additional U.S. V-22 Osprey aircraft “arrived overnight” at the naval base in Sigonella, Italy, to join four V-22s and 200 Marines that had been moved there last week, a U.S. defense source said.

    They won’t evacuate. Ambassadors would rather sacrifice their children than give up their positions. When was the last time you ever heard of an American embassy being evacuated at the request of the Ambassador? It doesn’t happen.

    What’s the United States Government (Obama’s Regime) waiting on, getting all Americans out of the U.S. Embassy,another Benghazi to happen? It should have already been evacuated.

      Could not agree more. They are unwilling to accept their failed policy that brought this about.
