    I just wrote that the DN didn't cover this..... and then there it is. So sorry DN for my comments.

    But I hope many see this as adding proof that this is indeed a multifaceted issue where it isn't us against Islam, and viva-versa. Many commented on the similarities between Libya and Iran. Here is a shinning example of how the two siturations are very different.

    This is significant. The militia attacked someone who had helped Libya. By their tribal custom and Islamic law, Stevens was there to help and he was under their protection. When he was killed, the shame is on the tribes and is on Shariah Al-Ansari or whatever their name is.

    We have aircraft carriers off the coast of Libya. I don't see what is the purpose of them. In fact, I don't think that we should mess with these guys. If we have some sense, we will move them away ASAP to give a gentle hint to everyone else that we respect what the people of Benghazi have done in living their religion/beliefs.
