NEW YORK – A video obtained by WND from Libyan sources shows a fighter aligned with the jihadists supported by then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton beheading a defenseless taxi driver shortly before the terrorist attack on Sept. 11, 2011, in Benghazi that resulted in the deaths of U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans.
A companion video has interviews with members of the taxi driver's grieving family.
WND previously published three videos that also demonstrate the extreme brutality unleashed by the mercenaries and Islamic fighters who joined Libyan-based jihadists to oust leader Moammar Gadhafi with the backing of Hillary Clinton’s State Department and NATO.
The videos, obtained through a trusted source, were vetted by Libyan tribal parliamentary leaders who spoke to WND. The Libyans verified the videos were taken in Libya in the weeks after the U.S.-backed NATO bombing that began in 2011.
As WND has reported, Clinton’s State Department had decided to rebuff offers Gadhafi had made to abdicate peacefully and avoid a war. And, meanwhile, the Obama administration is moving to drop charges against an arms dealer who had threatened to expose Hillary Clinton’s determination to arm anti-Gadhafi rebels.
The Libyan tribal parliamentary leaders, in an exclusive Skype interview published by WND on Sept. 21, characterized Clinton as the “Butcher of Libya.” They contended her State Department was “behind the terrorist groups controlling Libya, Ansar al-Sharia, behind the militia in Misurata who destroyed a great part of Libya and displaced 2 million people from their lands because they were accused of being loyal to Gadhafi.
Readers are cautioned that the first video published here is shockingly graphic.
Praise to Allah
The beheading took place near Al-Bayda City in Eastern Libya, some 120 miles from Benghazi.
The anti-Gadhafi mob off-camera in the video can be heard chanting praise to Allah while the beheading is taking place.
The footage has been pixelated to mask the most gruesome parts, from the first cut inflicted on the victim’s neck through the severing of the spinal cord and the ripping free of the head from the taxi driver’s corpse.
The taxi driver was in the Libyan army reserve, and he had been called up to assist Gadhafi in resisting the insurgents. He was in civilian clothes because he had just been dismissed from the military. It was the first days of the revolution, when the Libyan army was still trying to assess the opposition it faced.
The beheading video [WARNING: Extreme caution advised]:
The second video takes place at the taxi driver’s family home in western Libya, near the border. The family members interviewed include his mother, his father, an uncle and a brother.
See the video taken at the victim's home:
The mother explained she learned her son had been beheaded when she watched the video of the attack repeatedly on Libyan television and she recognized the shirt the victim was wearing.
When asked what she wanted to tell the world, the mother asked for blessings upon Gadhafi, expressing the family’s continued allegiance to the Libyan dictator that Hillary Clinton and NATO were preparing to depose.
The victim, 21, was planning to be married and was in the process of constructing a new home next to his parent’s home, seen in the video as the unpainted house under construction.
The young man’s taxi can be seen in the video in the foreground of the family home.
Clinton’s secret war in Libya
WND reported Thursday the Department of Justice moved to drop charges against arms dealer Marc Turi because federal prosecutors are convinced his defense would expose Hillary Clinton’s secret arms running to the radical al-Qaida-affiliated militia in Libya in 2011, according to Fox News senior judicial analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano.
Napolitano noted that one of the arms dealers to whom Secretary Clinton granted an exemption to the United Nations arms embargo imposed on Libya was Turi.
“Even though Turi never actually ran any guns into Libya, the Department of Justice indicted Turi for doing what Secretary Clinton had authorized him to do, which was providing material assistance to what turned out to be terrorist organizations in Libya,” Napolitano told WND.
He said Turi’s defense at trial was going to be “exposing Hillary Clinton and her plan to authorize him to run guns to Libya in a clandestine operation Clinton wanted to be able to deny when she ran for president.”
WND published visual evidence that Clinton’s State Department secretly provided weapons to Islamic jihadists in Libya to support the U.S.-backed NATO bombing in 2011.
In one of the videos published by WND, Moussa Ibrahim, Gadhafi’s information minister and official spokesman, displayed to reporters in 2011 a cache of weapons and ammunition seized from a ship from Qatar intercepted by the Libyan Coast Guard off Libya’s coast.
The video matched a report of Qatari military equipment seized in mid-April 2011. Anthony Bell and David Witter of the Institute for the Study of War, in their October 2011 publication “The Libyan Revolution: Stalemate & Siege, Part 3,” said the shipments “consisting of bulletproof vests, helmets and ammunition were bound for the rebels besieged in Misrata.”
“Though his shipment was unannounced, Qatari Prime Minister al-Thani alluded to arming the rebels just days before the crates appeared,” they wrote.
Hillary rebuffed Gadhafi abdication
WND reported that as the allied bombing of Libya began in 2011, the Obama administration rejected an offer by Gadhafi to abdicate in a deal to be brokered by Rear Adm. Chuck Kubrick with AFRICOM in Stuttgart, Germany, in March 2011.
WND also reported the Obama White House and the State Department under the management of Hillary Clinton “changed sides in the war on terror” in 2011 by implementing a policy of facilitating the delivery of weapons to the al-Qaida-dominated rebel militias in Libya attempting to oust Gadhafi from power, the Citizens Commission on Benghazi concluded in a report.
The Obama administration also rebuffed the efforts of former Rep. Curt Weldon to negotiate with Gadhafi an offer to step down, WND reported.
