Green Square Tripoli Protests

Green Square Tripoli Protests at graves of American Naval Heroes.

...Chipp Reid, a former journalist who lives in Eastport and now works for the federal government, said five of the Intrepid's crew, though unidentified, are buried in individual graves in the Old Protestant Cemetery in Tripoli.

The other eight, also unidentified, are buried in a mass grave in what is now a park in front of Tripoli Castle in Libya.

"They (the eight) are buried in front of the castle where (Libyan ruler Muammar al-) Gaddafi holds his I-hate-America rallies. The Libyans are, quite literally, dancing on American bodies," Reid said.
