Latest photo of the Old Protestant Cemetery, Tripoli

My friend Nuri, who sent the photo, notes: ‘It is looking west at sunset.  The frame captures three things at once.  1- The wall of the cemetery, final resting place of some of your men, on the left hand of the frame , 2- the place were the Intrepid blew up which is on the right side of the frame ( in the far back of the water you see just in front of the bow of the ship at port.  3 - The setting sun which at that time was early morning in their hometowns in the USA almost connecting them through its rays.”

He also says: “I would like to give you my belated condolences on the loss of Ambassador Chris J. Stevens.  He was a much liked and respected by most Libyans.  What happened to him in Benghazi was tragic and shameful.  40,000 people marched in Benghazi against his killers a week after his death.  He will be missed.”
