RAPHIC PHOTOS ALLEGEDLY SHOW ‘ATTEMPTS TO RESCUE' U.S. AMBASSADOR (CONTENT WARNING)

A graphic photo has surfaced online allegedly showing the "attempts to rescue" U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens in the final moments of his life after a mob attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya.

The image, posted on Arabic news channel AKNN News' Facebook page, shows a man identified as the ambassador severely wounded with blood on his face. It appears he's being carried away by two men in the midst of a crowd.

The Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) in Washington, D.C. translated the Arabic caption on the photo for TheBlaze as: "Attempts to rescue U.S. ambassador to Libya after a raid targeted his country's consulate in Benghazi in condemnation of a movie depicting the Prophet Muhammad."

Both President Barack Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton made reference to Libyans carrying Stevens to the hospital after the attack.

    So darn sad and uncalled for.  All of this because we (somebody in America) "hurt their feelings".  I hope the president keeps his word that these people will be dealt with, this man's family deserves justice.

    It is being reported that the Libyan soldiers were working in cooperation with the killers.  They were told where Chris Stevens was moved too....the supposedly safe place and that is where they killed Chris Stevens and the others. Then paraded him carried upside down like that to the hospital. 

    Also reports saying this was all well planned out
