A U.S. Embassy residential compound evacuated in July has been “secured” by a local Islamist-allied militia, who look to be having a great time at the facility.
The Dawn of Libya militia, who is not associated with the extremist group thought to be responsible for the attacks on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, could be seen in a video posted Sunday having a pool party, according to the Associated Press.
U.S. Ambassador to Libya, Deborah Jones, sent a message on Twitter saying that the video appeared to have been shot at the embassy.

“To my knowledge & per recent photos the US Embassy Tripoli chancery & compound is now being safeguarded and has not been ransacked,” she wrote, but no comments have been issued from the White House, AP reported. There’s probably a reason for that, according to this tweet:

Twitter users never miss an opportunity to weigh in on issues of importance, and this was no different with tweets like this:

Visceral disgust watching video of cheering Islamists swimming in our embassy pool. Our failed policy helped create a failed state. #Libya — Guy Benson (@guypbenson) August 31, 2014
With the collapse of the police force in Tripoli, the Dawn of Libya militia is the leading law enforcement group trying to restore normalcy to the area. That is, when they’re not having pool parties.
Who invited her? Miserable Michelle Obama puts a damper on political ‘it-couple’s’ nuptials
