Ambassador to Libya Deborah Jones was asked about a video of what looks to be Islamic militants on the U.S. embassy compound in Tripoli.

Here’s how she responded:

“Safeguarded”?

So let’s get this straight:  She can’t say definitively whether it’s the compound, but she’s sure that it hasn’t been ransacked.

Recent reports indicate that Islamic rebels have “secured” part of the embassy in Tripoli, which American officials evacuated about a month ago due to safety concerns.
