    Libya Prison Escape: More Than 1,000 Inmates Break From Jail Near Benghazi

    The Benghazi episode has a new chapter.
    TRIPOLI, Libya More than a thousand inmates escaped a prison Saturday in Libya as protesters stormed political party offices across the country, signs of the simmering unrest gripping a nation overrun by militias and awash in weaponry.
    It wasn't immediately clear if the jailbreak at al-Kweifiya prison came as part of the demonstrations. Protesters had massed across Libya over the killing of an activist critical of the country's Muslim Brotherhood group.
    Inmates started a riot and set fires after security forces opened fire on three detainees who tried to escape the facility outside of Benghazi, a security official at al-Kweifiya prison said. Gunmen quickly arrived to the prison after news of the riot spread, opening fire with rifles outside in a bid to free their imprisoned relatives, a Benghazi-based security official said.
    Those who escaped either face or were convicted of serious charges, the prison official said.

    Who would have guessed that these peaceful people would do such a thing? What role did Obama play?

    Looks like we are witnessing a jail-break spring after the Arab Spring.

    Meanwhile Saturday, hundreds gathered in the capital Tripoli after dawn prayers, denouncing the Friday shooting death of Abdul-Salam Al-Musmari. They set fire to tires in the street and demanded the dissolution of Islamist parties.

    In Tripoli, protesters appeared to be inspired by events in neighboring Egypt, where millions took to the streets Friday to answer a call from the army chief, who said he wanted a mandate to stop "potential terrorism" by supporters of the country's ousted president, Mohammed Morsi, who hails from the Brotherhood.

    "We don't want the Brotherhood, we want the army and the police," Libyan protesters chanted, repeating a slogan also used in Egypt. Libya's nascent security forces are struggling to control the country's militias, most of whom have roots in the rebel groups that overthrew Gadhafi in 2011.

    The activist Al-Musmari, who used to publicly criticize the Brotherhood, was killed in a drive-by shooting in Benghazi.

    Some protesters stormed the headquarters of a Brotherhood-affiliated political party and another Islamist-allied party in the capital, destroying furniture. Witnesses say demonstrators also stormed a Brotherhood party in Benghazi.

    Security forces in Libya have been unable to impose their authority on the country since Gadhafi's ouster. Militias, many made up of former rebels who fought in the civil war that toppled Gadhafi, have grown in the strength and in many areas rival the security forces in their firepower and reach. The armed forces also rely on militias for help securing the country in some cases.

    On Saturday, a colonel was killed by gunmen in Benghazi. Another three security members were killed a day earlier when gunmen opened fire on them. Security members are frequently targets in the country.....snip~

    From your own piece. Pretty much explains the security situation in Libya. Course I would watch all remarks concerning whats being investigated and what Team Obama and their spin is saying concerning Libya. Much of it doesn't seem to gel like.

    Like I mentioned earlier, a jail-break spring follows the Arab Spring. Taliban gunmen frees 240 prisoners in Pakistan.

    A senior commander claimed the mastermind behind the attack was Adnan Rasheed, author of a letter to Malala Yousafzai describing why she was singled out for assassination.

    The audacious jailbreak is deeply embarrassing for the new government of Nawaz Sharif, coming hours before his chosen candidate was elected as the country’s president.

    Heya RDS. Yeah but what does that have to do with Libya, or Benghazi. Now the MB getting chased out of Libya too.

    Is the MB in Pakistan? At least with Libya they can cross Right back into Egypt.

    Also I hear the MB is calling out a Million Man Army of protest for the release of Morsi.

    Just a cause for concern when high value militant prisoners escape. The keyword is Jailbreak.

    Well.....I wouldn't put it past the Islamists to head off for the likes of Syria or Libya itself. Not that I would consider the Pakis to be any sort of elite type soldier, anyways. But they do tend to like to jump off into the mix.

    Course they do have to be watched due to those Nukes.

    Also with us mainly pulling up out of Afghanistan.....I wouldn't forget anything they did that they caused us any sort of problems. Going forward.....I would be short with them at all times. Short, Precise, and Crystal Clear as to where they really stand in the Big picture of the World.
