Libya leader apologizes to US for fatal attack on ambassador



Published: Wed, September 12, 2012 @ 9:24 a.m.

TRIPOLI, Libya (AP) — Libya's interim president has apologized to the United States for the attack on the U.S. consulate in the eastern city of Benghazi that killed the American ambassador and three of his staff.

Mohammed el-Megarif described the attack as "cowardly" and offered his condolences on the death of Ambassador Chris Stevens and the three other Americans. Speaking to reporters, he vowed to bring the culprits to justice and maintain his country's close relations with the United States. He said the three Americans were security guards.

The attack on the Benghazi consulate was carried out by protesters angry over a film that ridiculed Islam's Prophet Muhammad. They used machine guns and rocket propelled grenades.

"We extend our apology to America, the American people and the whole world," el-Megarif said.

What true religion or god says to KILL anyone who says or does anything it doesn't like. In the Koran it say all non-Muslims are infidels. You are to pity them and try to convert them. If they refuse to convert you are,to kill them. Some religion.

Island mike you are a true idiot. Snub our only ally in the region, no clear plan when Iran is getting closer to having an atomic bomb, If this guy is a Christian , then start acting like one, stop defending a religion that thinks people who do not believe in their god, just kill them. And island mike do you think it is ok to kill people because they make a film that these people think is against their religion? I say, let us send you over there to do Obama's bidding.

Amazing, some morons still believe he is a muslim. Or they WAnt to believe it, to give them any reason to bring him down.
A true Christian acts by respecting other faiths, like Hindus, Buddhists, Methodists, and MORMONS.
Only the kooks in each faith believe in killing others that dont believe in THEIR creed george, like your white supremacist Aryan brotherhood buddys.
