    OK, comrades....We lost an ambassador and three (3) other brave Americans in Benghazi after Islamist jihadist terrorists attacked our consulate and then a supposedly-"SAFE" house. It was a cluster flukk.

    Looking at the Big Picture in Libya:
    1. Is Libya within our Sphere of Influence?
    2. What leverage do our allies who are actually taking 70%+ of Libyan oil out of that desert nation have with whatever provisional government or tribes are operating in that place?

    Excuse me, but I have had a oar in those waters. I CAN'T GET IN THE LIBYAN OIL GAME! Under the Gdaffi gang, it was pretty corrupt. Now it is free-for-all with no security or reliability. The Eurowimps are doing OK with their methods; some Americans are in and scared.

    The world wants sweet Libyan oil. It is cheap to produce and a quick trip across the Med to Europe. We are on the margin. But we are the target!

    Let's get some balance into this equation, even as our own energy production is ramping up. All IMHO.

    Mr. Congeniality
