Reports say at least ten died when Police and civilian demonstrators decided to forcibly expell those thought to be responsible for the US embassy murders.

The militia suspected of killing the US ambassador to Libya nearly two weeks ago has been driven out of its base in the eastern city of Benghazi.
Police and protesters stormed the HQ of the Islamist group Ansar al-Sharia.
The HQ of the Sahaty Brigade, said to have official backing, was also stormed. At least nine people were killed there, another died elsewhere.

Go Libya!

War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things: the decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth a war, is much worse...A man who has nothing which he is willing to fight for, nothing which he cares more about than he does about his personal safety, is a miserable creature who has no chance of being free, unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.

Absolutely.
With so much of the media concentrating on the anti-usa protests, it's nice to see these stories emerging that show quite clearly that despite what some would have us believe, there is much more to this situation.
Ten people died to throw these Islamist militias out of Benghazi. The people of Libya want democracy and justice.

It's all owver the news channels at the moment. Lots of video of the 'base' before. It looks seriously defended. They were brave to take it on. Tragic that some were killed.

I salute the people of Libya. No one has the right to attempt to rule others by terror. It saddens me that some were killed, but freedom always seems to come with a price. Like I said on another thread, the terrorists are a minority and eventually the majority of people will rise up and stand against them.

Way to go Libya!

I just hope that these militias don't manage to regroup and decide to take revenge on the people.

They want a real change, good for them.  They know they have to do something or it will never stop.

Absolutely, They need to be their own masters and not be dictated to by the religious fanatics, the foreign influences or the old hatreds. It needs to be a fresh start and stopping extremist groups getting a foothold now is supremely important.
Also the co-opperation between the local police and the people is a good sign.

Emails show White House knew 2 hours after Benghazi attack that militant group claimed responsibility

So apparently a terrorist group wanted to take credit, to which Obama replied ... you didn't build that ...

(ba-dum-tiss)

The terrorists must have been pissed when tried to brag that they planned the attack, but nobody would believe them

So can we safely say that the America has given it's approval to Obama's handling of Benghazi? We've given the go-ahead for more lies, more cover-ups in the future? Are you all out of your minds? What's going to happen if we have another 9/11, and you are left with this spineless weasel in charge? How will he respond? More lies, more spin, more finger-pointing? A state department full of incompetent butt-kissers shifting blame upon each other?

I'm guessing people were more worried about about their own country than they did about a foreign matter that is still under investigation.

War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things: the decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth a war, is much worse...A man who has nothing which he is willing to fight for, nothing which he cares more about than he does about his personal safety, is a miserable creature who has no chance of being free, unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.
