UPDATE: 6:33 PM EST, 15 Sept, 2012 - AFP Confirms.
According to Chris Lefkow, North American editor of AFP, "AFP did not publish any such report."
Lefkow cites Ezzedine Said, AFP's chief editor for the Middle East:
"That report falsely quoted our news agency and has no truth whatsover to it. AFP promptly sent a strongly worded complaint to that website and they removed the report and published a denial, saying that AFP did not report such a thing."
Timothy Whiteman accepts as legitimate the clarification from AFP, but stands by the seperate video clip from Libyan TV as cited by The Washington Times until provided clarification and/or confirmation of factual inaccuracy of said broadcast.
The Lebanese news report cited the Agence France-Presse (AFP) broke the story when given the information by an unnamed senior member of the Libyan Interior Ministry.
Tayyar.com also reported via Google translation from the original Arabic, Ambassador Stevens:
"...was killed and representation of his body in a manner similar to what happened with Gaddafi, such as murder."
According to the BBC, when the former Libyan strongman Colonel Moammar Gaddafi was initially captured:
"Still images from an analysis of amateur video footage taken in the moments after Col Gaddafi's capture appear to show him being sodomised with a pole or knife."
The Washington Times has posted a video clip (left) reportedly originating from the Libyan Free Press confirming the sodomization of Ambassador Stevens prior to his murder.
As translated by The Washington Times, the Libyan reporter stated:
"Libya - USA Ambassador in Bengazi sodomized and killed by his own al-Qaeda puppets."
The Times also has posted an update stating that as of 3:35 AM EST today:
"The Lebanon report on the murdered U.S. ambassador in Libya, Christopher Stevens, remains unconfirmed by the AFP."
