    The Prime Minister of Libya Has Been Seized By Gunmen-BBC

    No other news to report. All the BBC article says is "More to follow" I believe this may have happened just minutes ago.

    Probably the same team that ran security at the Embassy in Benghazi

    Costly mistake by USA - broke sovereignty.
    TRIPOLI, Libya — Libyan Prime Minister Ali Zidan was snatched by gunmen before dawn Thursday from a Tripoli hotel where he resides, the government said. The abduction appeared to be in retaliation for the U.S. special forces raid over the weekend that seized a Libyan al-Qaida suspect from the streets of the capital.
    From Washington Post.

    Sucks to be him. i figured he was not in the best position given the number of factions looking to operate in the country. kadaffy may have been wacky to us, but it would seem that cruel and paranoid leaders seem to be the best for surviving on their own in countries like that. We just need to ignore it and let it happen. Unless the republicans want to go ahead and let things through so we can help libya it is tough tittie for them because we have problems of our own with local terrorists hijacking the US government and shutting it down. We casnnot police the world without some massive help from other countries, and since that is not there let us take care of ourselves. Abandon libya and move on.

    Unfortunately they will dramatize it, push for more expenditures, and somehow make it worse. He failed to protect our embassy or allow us to enter the country with military during the benghazi attack so not much we can do there buddy. perhaps he should have allowed big brother US to come in and help and save our people. he wanted to go it alone and now he should be alone. But I am sure they will not do that. There is probably something in libya we want. Or I should say something that is desired by the US money and power system. That does not seem to include me so we doesn't apply.
