The deadly attack on the US consulate in the Libyan city of Benghazi was planned and "meticulously executed," the country's assembly chief told AFP on Saturday.
 
"I don't want to talk about what happened in other countries but as for Libya, the operation was meticulously executed," Mohammed al-Megaryef said of the wave of protests across the world over a US-produced film mocking Islam.
 
"There was planning. It was not a peaceful protest which degenerated into an armed attack or aggression. That's how it was planned," he said.
 
US ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans were killed on Tuesday when suspected Islamic militants fired on the consulate in the eastern Libyan city with rocket-propelled grenades and set it ablaze.

TURKIC VOICE As it turns out 9/11 was perpetrated in the USA by a bunch of Arab guys we allowed in our country to go to school. So the order may have come from a "cave" but be clear that these men planned the attack on American soil as guests of my country. 9/11 could not have been a set up job because too many people would have had to have been involved and as a rule people don't keep their mouths shut. AND when we found out that many of these men were Saudis, did we storm their consulate?

@ Thessalonian Well said! If you take into account how many folks in Muslim lands are ignorant and do not even know to read and write, they are easy to influence by telling them constantly that their religion is the most wonderfull and untouchable ideology ever has been. But looking at the free scientific West there are second thoughts, however samll, which make them so insecure that they have not other outlet than to resort to hate and violence and even a lousy film is a good excuse to rage!

Right VICTOR! Everything always comes back around to the Jews and the evel USA. Give me a break and start taking responsibility for things that people do. It must be so nice to be able to place the blame on someone else for all the World's ills.

The horrific events of what happened in Libya is a classic false flag terrorist act carried out by the CIA and Mossad, just like they did on 9/11, to stir-up anti-muslim sentiment in America in order to make it easier to justify a war against Iran. Benjamin Netanyahu knows that America is distancing itself from Israel and they are doing anything and everything they can to convince America that muslims are the enemy of America, when it fact the enemy of America and the world is Israel.

How many times US and Israel planned and killed? Although its wrong to kill delagates, guests and ambesseders, but of course its is difficult to control emotional people especially when their religion is mocked. How many did the US arrest in connection with the making of the film and spearding hatred?

"US ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans were killed on Tuesday." Let us once again make an attempt to put this into proper perspective. People are killed in accidents, wars, natural disasters and so on. The unfortunate Americans serving the interests of their nation in Libya were not simply killed as you simply put it... They were murdered by faithfully pious, uneducated and short tempered Muslims who resent the good life Westerners enjoy in today's free Western world. Regards

Was the release of the Coptic Christian anti-muslim film clip and the attacks on the American embassies a coincidence or was it all pre-planned ?
