    Then wake up. We absolutely supported Qaddaffi's ouster, supporting several factions, one of which was Al Qaeda Libya. We bombed Qaddaffi forces so that Al Qeada in Libya forces could advance and take ground.

    It was well-debated here at the time. Documented. Now we reap what we sowed.

    What is disgusting is you not knowing what happened, or what would result.

    My guess is...nothing.

    This IS an election year, after all.
    He is too busy fundraising. The call to evening prayer is the sweetest sound. The call of idiots' money is even sweeter.

    They KNEW what the reaction would be.. anyone with half a brain would know that.. hence they knew that people would get killed by making this film.

    I condemn the actions of the moron scum in Libya and Egypt with every breath I have.. there is NO PLACE for reactions like this... protest yes, but violent protests.. HELL NO!... , but
    I can not just sit by and let that American-Israeli jihadist scum get off scot free for what he and his followers have done.
    Have you become an apologist for Islamic terrorists now Pete?

    What is disgusting is you blaming us for the actions of others. Nobody said they had to kill him like they did. They did that because THAT is the way they do things over there.

    Here you go....

    "By midday Wednesday, no one had been arrested for the violence or the deaths, and officials in Tripoli were scrambling to implement a response to what they admitted was a monumental security breach.

    Libya's new government has struggled to impose its authority on a myriad of gangs and former rebel brigades that remain armed and act outside the law. New security officials have had mixed success in implementing a plan whereby former rebels would be disbanded from their old brigades and given jobs as part of the new national army, defense forces and border guards.

    One witness to the consulate attack Tuesday night said that a handful of Libyan soldiers dressed in the uniform of the new national army were on patrol outside the U.S. diplomatic structure when the mob arrived, but that they were almost immediately overwhelmed."

    1) First is the basic protests, where folks took to the streets to blame the US for the film that disparaged Islam. Most troublesome to me is that the media in Egypt had been airing news about the film of late, announcing the organized protest, etc. for a week ahead of time. This indicates the politicians (The Muslim Brotherhood) deliberately stoking anti-American hostilities. My understanding was that in Libya, the media was not as provocative.

    The above got no one hurt though.

    2) The attack on the embassy appears to be a deliberate retaliatory assault by Al Qaeda affiliated militia. Timed to use the cover of the protest as much as possible, but otherwise having little to do with it. The retaliation would seem to be either the killing of the #2 Al Qaeda in Libya a few months ago, and possibly to avenge Bin Laden.
    It seems we spend a lot of time guessing at Islamic motives, trying to discover a possible explanation, no matter how far fetched, to explain why they would behave the way they do.

    Was it a movie? Revenge for Bin Laden? The 9/11 anniversary? Was it spontaneous? Was the government sincere when they condemned it?

    Maybe they just hate us and want to intimidate us. That seems the likeliest explanation and it seems to be working well.

    And the saddest thing is the way they dragged the body of Ambassador Stevens after he was murdered .... exactly like they did to Gaddafi.

    It's nothing short of barbaric!
