Libya’s Militant Take Over US Embassy house And Throw A Pool Party

It’s a party in USA embassy residence. The Libyan militia has taken over the vacant USA embassy house and hosted a pool party.

A YouTube video shows militia group mostly from the northwestern city of Misrata, some men are armed and some are not, they are all diving gleefully to the pool and some are drinking and having a good time around the balcony.

Analyst claim this is a direct dig to the US, Washington over their policy on Libya which Western governments fear is teetering toward becoming a failed state three years after a Nato-backed war ended Gaddafi’s rule

USA withdrew all their embassy personnel in Libya in July, all their diplomats were driven to the Tunisian border amid the clash of rival militias and interim government in Libya.

Security in Libya is an especially contentious subject for the United States because of the September 11, 2012, attack on the US mission in Benghazi, in which militants killed Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans.

Republican lawmakers have kept up steady criticism of President Barack Obama over his administration’s handling of the Benghazi attack, and they have also cited Libya’s latest unrest as another example of what they see as the Democratic president’s failed policy in the volatile region.

“Libya now is collapsed into a failed state,” US Senator John McCain told CBS’s Face The Nation programme. “That is what happens when you lead from behind.”

US Ambassador to Libya Deborah Jones, in a message on Twitter, said the YouTube recording, posted by an amateur videographer, appeared to show “a residential annex of the US mission but cannot say definitively”.

Jones, now based in Malta, said, however, that the embassy compound “is now being safeguarded and has not been ransacked”.

The US government believes that while the annex has been seized, the main compound has not suffered a similar fate, a US government source in Washington told Reuters.
