Libya

First, my heart goes out to those who’ve lost people at the Libyan embassy.  It’s an awful loss.

But I can’t believe it’s the end of it.  And I had to laugh (hollowly) at the lead of this New York Post story:

US officials are increasingly suspicious that the murder Tuesday of the US ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens and three other American officials was not the result of a protest against an anti-Islam film, but instead was a coordinated terror strike timed for the 11th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks.

Really?  They’re just starting to slowly figure out that consecutive embassy attacks in Islamic countries on September 11, with people chanting Osama Bin Laden’s name and waving black Al Qaeda flags might have something to do with the anniversary?

 

Sigh.

About Mystic Cowgirl

I worked overseas in the aid game for longer than I'd like to admit and learned several important things: 1) Third World countries aren't poor because America is rich. They're impoverished due to socialist governments that provide neither rule of law nor basic infrastructures; 2) These socialist governments redistribute wealth from taxpayers to the government workers. There's no benefit to the poor or downtrodden, and certainly not to the general welfare in terms of infrastructure improvements. 3) America is moving toward the Third World model. Rule of law has been subverted because equality under the law is disappearing as special interests carve out exemptions to regulations and special favors under the law. The redistribution of wealth to government began decades ago -- total compensation for government employees now outpaces salaries in the private sector.
