Facebook and Facebook-owned Instagram have suspended the accounts of former Marine Corps Sergeant John Tiegen, a survivor of the Sept. 11, 2012, attack against U.S. diplomatic facilities in Benghazi, Libya that were overrun by militants of the since-dissolved terrorist group Ansar al-Sharia.
Other than notifying Tiegen that he had somehow violated the platform’s “community standards,” Facebook did not explain why it disabled his account.
A screenshot Tiegen shared on Twitter of Facebook’s notice said his account has been permanently disabled.
Tiegen appears to have appealed Facebook’s suspension, but the company said it “cannot review the decision.”
