I’m thinking this guy was arrested by the government for ties to the Obama regime.
I’m thinking he ok’ed the raid.
Revenge is quite possible. The primary reason the government was so ticked off about the raid is they feared they’d be thought to have been complicit in it.
It is great. It goes with bang ... and an explosion, a fire and a kidnapping ...
Wow, what a great security apparatus he had. *sarc*
Ain’t Obama’s Arab Spring just great?
Yep, every single thing Obama touches turns to crap.
‘What difference does it make?’
The Libyan pres has consistently ridiculed 0bama....and probably has info on Benghazi. Good money sez this was an 0bama op.
The does say ‘rebels’ and we all know how fond Obama is of people by that name.
Group thought to have seized #Libya PM say they will pursue all who aided US capture of al-Qaeda suspect Anas al-Liby bbc.in/1bdV9zz
Government-linked militia says it has arrested Libyan PM Ali Zeidan “on the order of the prosecutor” bbc.in/19BtDP1
The abduction early Thursday comes amid anger among Libya's powerful Islamic militant groups over the U.S. special forces raid on Saturday that seized a Libyan al-Qaida suspect, known as Abu Anas al-Libi. Several groups accused the government of colluding in or allowing the raid, though the government denied having any prior knowledge of the operation. Hours before the abduction, Zeidan met with al-Libi's family late Wednesday.
The snatching of Zidan came hours after he met with the family of Nazih Abdul-Hamed al-Ruqai, the al-Qaida suspect seized by the Americans, now being held in a U.S. warship.
Looks like they want an exchange.

It’s the same as the way he hung Seal Team 6 out to dry, painting targets on their backs, putting them in a slow undefended chopper, and then telling the enemy where they would be.
I think when Kaddafi went, that put an end to any opposition to Muslim extremism. Libya isn’t Egypt, and there aren’t a whole lot of secularists. Yes, some, but not a majority, I don’t think.
I’d guess this is tribal resentment, or a typical Muzzie power-struggle to see who’s going to rule the roost.
Thanks for the ping.
earlier on FR:
They let him go just like that? I bet he paid them to free him.
Could be, or his family bailed him out, or even could be all for show.
Was a great thought, at the time. Turns out it may have been a comparison of information to make certain everyone, including obama was on the same page.
