Posted on 09/21/2012 9:14:22 PM PDT by Cronos
Galvanized by anger over the killing of the popular American ambassador here last week, thousands of Libyans marched through this city on Friday, demanding the disarming of the militias that helped topple the dictatorship but have troubled the country with their refusal to disband.
In a show of mass frustration at the armed groups, protesters seized control of several militia headquarters on Friday night and handed them over to Libyas national army in what appeared to be a coordinated sweep. They also stormed the headquarters of Ansar al-Sharia, a hard-line Islamist militia that has been linked to the attack on the United States Mission in Benghazi that killed the ambassador and three other Americans.
..We want justice for Chris, read one sign among the estimated 30,000 Libyans, including families, who marched into Benghazis main square on Friday to protest in front of the chief encampment of Ansar al-Sharia.
..Members of Ansar al-Sharia held a counterdemonstration, and arguments erupted between the opposing sides, but no violence occurred, at least not initially. Protesters chanted: You terrorists, you cowards. Go back to Afghanistan.

These militant Freedom Fighters also wore Obama buttons and waved the Obama flag.
And they chanted “Yes, We Can” and “Thank You, Obama” - in English - in front of MSM camera crews.
Camera crews that just happened to be on the spot for this spontaneous grass roots uprising for Arab Democracy.
Libyans are done being pushed around by terrorists like Kadaffy and al-qaeda.
The New York Times. Right on time.
Were Greek columns in the background of this heart felt moment?
NOT buying it.
They is protecting Obama.
Until I see Islamists’ ‘heads on a pike’......it’s meaningless.
So long as this man is in office and the NYT is in New York, nothing is as it appears for America.
I’m guessing the al Ansar Sharia “militia” are Wahhabi-financed, and well paid thanks to the Saudis’ endless oil revenues.
This is the thanks we get from our good friend and ally Saudi Arabia for ousting Saddam from Kuwait and serving as their armed forces:
They continue to pay for the construction of endless mosques across the world which preach jihad and incite violence by their agents in the countries which accept the vipers.
And they export the most odious aspects of their barbaric fundamentalist Islamic ideology to the four corners of the world by generously funding these murderous, backward, muslim zealots.
I hope the Libyans kill every one of them that they don’t run out of their country. Not a very christian thought but I’m not much of a christian lately.
I don’t for a second believe anything that comes from the MSM and considering all of the lies from the Obama and his administration, I STRONGLY suspect all of this to be directed theater.
Obama needs the narrative to quickly change... Abracadabra.... POOF, the narrative changes.
I don’t think you need to guess at all. Same thing in Afghanistan; pre-9/11 the Taliban were funded by the Saudis and manned by foreigners.
Or ? the re-election committee seeing Obama’s poll numbers going down in the aftermath of the mess in the middle east and in their response were sent over to Libya to clean up the mess ?
Or could it be David Axelrod sending in his people to clean up Obama’s mess in Libya ?
Boy I am glad that I am not the only one who feels that way.
Staged. Gotta keep that Great Satan Money Tap open.
What did Chris Stevens have on obama?
is this as it is presented?
Or is it a set up to make Americans feel better about Libya?
Except this has been major news on every major news media in the world. Its not a story solely carried by the NYT, which es would be suspicious.
