According to Ed Henry, Fox News’ Chief White House Correspondent, four U.S. Military are being held by the Libyan government. Henry says, unconfirmed, that the four were securing the U.S. Embassy in Tripoli. He also said U.S. Marines generally are responsible for that Embassy. The story is that our government is working diligently, “behind the scenes” to free the four. God help them with this “government” at the helm. More as updates are available. (Remember that early reports are often wrong, so…)
UPDATE 11:41 pm CDT: CNN is reporting the four held have now been released. Still no explanations or identifications. I’ll have more when available.
Fox News has the same report – 4 released and not much more other than quoting a U.S. State Department official saying “we value our relationship with the new Libya.” What the heck does that mean. Today’s Libya is the same Libya that killed Ambassador Chris Stevens, Sean Smith, Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty.
