Franklin Lamb Shot in Tripoli

By Activist Post

The Palestine Civil Rights Campaign-Lebanon confirms reports that Franklin Lamb was shot at approximately 11:45 a.m. on Sunday [5:45 am Eastern] August 21 in Tripoli, Libya outside of the Corinthia Hotel where he has been staying.

Franklin P. Lamb, LLM,PhD is the Director of Americans Concerned for Middle East Peace, Wash.DC-Beirut. Lamb is doing research as a board member for the Palestine Civil Rights Campaign-Lebanon in Libya.

Lamb has covered the unfolding situation in Libya as a contributing writer to this website and many others.

PCRC tells Activist Post that Franklin had just returned from a 90 minute bicycle tour of central Tripoli and was walking past the hotel swimming pool when he was hit in his right leg.

Witnesses report having seen sniper fire coming from the roof of the Marriott Hotel across from the Corinthia.

Franklin is reportedly doing well. The bullet has been removed and he is resting comfortably.  PCRC said Lamb wishes that no one be concerned and that he will be fine.

It’s unclear whether Lamb was targeted for his highly-critical reporting of NATO as the aggressor in Libya.

It’s also reported that Internet has been cut in Tripoli, so reports are likely to be delayed inside Libya.

This article includes direct quotes from an email sent to Activist Post by Lamb’s associates.

    Good. Maybe now this miserable old goat will get religion and start paying his ex wife and kids all the child support arrears he’s ducked so far.

  2. “It’s unclear whether Lamb was targeted for his highly-critical reporting of NATO as the aggressor in Libya.”

    Oh, it couldn’t be anything to do with, I dunno, say, … cycling around in a WAR ZONE?

  3. Wow. That’s relevant. How long have you been schtupping for the Mossad?

  4. Best line…
    “It’s unclear whether Lamb was targeted for his highly-critical reporting of NATO as the aggressor in Libya”

    Why ruin a good assumption of a retribution by allowing doubt to if it actually was? Just leave out the line and alow the CTists make up their own conclusions witthout those nasty facts.

  5. To the idiot called Shoshana Lindsky, stop spreading lies around about franklin lamb having children. For the second time am telling you this man lost the love of his life when he was still in his 20s in an explosion in beirut. He never got married after.
    You’re writing this on all the articles about this incident and its not even something related to him being shot apart from it not being true.
