And judging from the plethoric appearance of his head and neck he appears to have been strangled by hanging or choking. Asphyxiation by smoke inhalation does not give localized redness and tissue congestion of the face and neck. More often the victim appears cyanotic with no swelling of the head and neck. Even in carbon monoxide poisoning the entire body is plethoric(red) not just one local area.
I have seen 3 strangulation victims and they all looked exactly like the photo of the US ambassador.
I actually saw them on television......Fox News to be specific.
Also, here as I was trying to affirm my first impression from the television photos.
i think its dangerous to make any kind of an M.E.'s opinion - considering those pictures were not professionally taken.......poor lighting, cell phone pics, etc etc
the reality of coloring of the skin could be greatly different than what you're seeing
or it could be exactly what it is.....all the autopsies i've ever been too, i've never seen an M.E. rule on cause of death without doing the standard Y incision, etc etc ...
I just got back to the States. How do we lose the ambassador for several hours? Where the **** were the Marines? And why have we not sent bombing missions over there to carpet bomb those ragheads?
You tell me the Progressives are not "Out of Touch" and do not have anyone's interest at heart than their own. They are about subjugating people and being a ruling class.
Hillary Clinton, net worth upwards of $50 million, said that she is "unlike a lot of people who are truly well off." i.e., that she doesn't think she is truly well off...
Chelsea "can't get into money"... yet has a $600,000 a year fluff contract with NBC and married a multi-millionaire kid of a convicted felon and lives in a $15 million dollar mansion in NYC... Yeah, Right...
re: the marines - the Ambassador was not at the embassy - and i would venture a guess that he's traveled all over that country without an armed Marine squad...from what i've read he was very well liked by the Libyan people and this was not an attack by any faction of the Libyan people/government
I've seen some pretty awful car Wreck deaths and some autopsies too.
Considering he was attacked by a mob and there was evidently RPGs shot at the getaway vehicle.....his body doesn't seem to have been desecrated or abused. He does look dead though.
he looks covered in soot - which is consistent with the fire and smoke reports
but then again - anything is possible - what the real facts are over there is anybody's guess
i wasnt trying to discredit you - you've been to medical school, etc etc......just bringing to light that the pictures aren't the greatest
I sit on a committee for the Ronald McDonald House in Delaware and I have done some work with the A I duPont Childrens Hospital for fundraising. Children issues are something I really care about and a lot of my volunteer work centers around helping children.
God Bless those who do it and those who help them get it done.
Diverdog, no need to thank me. What I chose as my profession is no more important than yours or anybody else's. I watch other people do their jobs and I know I could never do what they do because I am not creative or talented enough.
I get to help kids and that is its own reward. Thanks for your kind words, though and thanks for your contribution to the kids and their families who are dealing with very stressful life situations.

seems to be reports of an al qaeda group operating in libya.
Another thing that just seems weird.
Was watching a show on our Snipers in Iraq and they just couldn't believe that after you saw 100's of your fellow soldiers have their head or Full body mass blown away....they would continue to wear ski masks. Possibly Al-Queda is learning to not take credit and make themselves a target instantly?
