Official: Libyan Security Handed Ambassador Stevens to Attackers

President Obama claims Libyan security forces fought beside Americans against attackers on Tuesday, but a Libyan official says they gave up consulate personnel to the Islamists who murdered them.

Libya’s Deputy Interior Minister Wanis al-Sharif says the consulate’s security forces moved Ambassador Christopher Stevens and other personnel to a second, safer building once the attacks began. But, he continues, the security forces told the attackers which building Stevens was hiding in, effectively handing him over.

According to Sharif, the attackers coming against the US embassy were “more heavily armed than the Libyan security personnel who were assigned to protect the U.S. Consulate.”
