Mr. Prime Minister, are you there?
Yes, I'm here.
Listen carefully, they're going to take you....
Yeah, I don't ..uh... Who is this?
This is Brian Mills, retired CIA agent.
Yeah, I'm not really sure who you a....
You just have to trust me on this. I have a particular set of skills I've acquired over a long career.

Ctrl-Alt-Del: I eagerly await the wingnut talking points that will fill the gaping void in my consciousness that is the explanation of how Obama is to blame for this

Is this the impeachable offense? Is Sarah Palin automatically president? Does Joe Biden really own a Trans Am? Will these and other questions be answered on the next episode of "Soap?"

cc_rider: I'm talking with some people online who are in Libya and others who have family in Libya, and they are saying this sounds like a coup or attempted coup by militias and/or Islamist opponents of Zeidan. It's not entirely clear which groups may be involved, but if what I am hearing is correct, this thing may have been planned for months and they are just using the al-Libi thing as an excuse. There have been several kidnappings, attempted kidnappings, and assassinations of police, soldiers and politicians in the months leading up to this.

I know, this is Fark, but all snark aside, I hope they don't harm this guy. By all accounts he's supposed to be a decent man.

Yes, it's a strange and mysterious thing that other countries often have their own politics and agendas going on that have nothing to do with America and our peccadilloes. It's odd to think that a group that wants to kidnap their OWN Prime Minister in their OWN country to advance their OWN political aims and possibly overthrow their OWN government might not plan it in advance and use a timetable that has little to nothing to do with anything going on in the US except coincidence and possibly taking advantage of Americans' attention being diverted by the mess in our own house to do a little cleaning in theirs.

No no, it's entirely too much to imagine that anything that goes on in the world isn't entirely fomented by US forces, for US interests because god knows we run the world, even if it's for evil purposes. Clearly highly organized groups like, for instance, Ansar al-Sharia, couldn't POSSIBLY have managed this all on their own.

I mean, really. Let's try to be a little less Amerocentric once in a while.

kombi: I have no idea what DTV channel FSTV 348....Info says its french news. But they are covering it. al jazeera  is talking about the shutdown. Thanks ALGORE. Dont ask me why I would expect a middle east news channel would cover news in the middle east.

I had to read that several times.  I kept reading it as 'french fries' and wondering both why the channel listing would list any show as 'french fries' as well as why you would tune in to it when looking for a news program...

Can't be too big of a deal.  MSNBC is doing a story on twerking and Hannity is telling some lefty that defaulting on the national debt isn't a big deal.  All seems right in the world.

Well obviously they kidnapped him using the guns that he confiscated from US veterans to hand over to Al Qaeda.

Apparently, yes.

I don't think he'll make it home :(

I had high hopes for Libya actually working well in post-KaDaffyduck leadership, but I have to admit I haven't kept up with it since then.
