I'm going to go ahead and ignore the second sentence and entire article and breathe heavily while I do.

But hiking in Iran is still cool, right?

"Is this a scandal?"
"You forgot Benghazi"
"Thanks Obama"
references to poor 60 Minutes piece

etc.

"He was going back home to see his mom and his family where he hadn't been for some time. He was supposed to leave this week but he said he would stay around for our midterms and sent his family. He was going to join them."

I've seen this movie plot. That cop was days from retirement but stayed on to finish the case.

/sad story

See, Obama supporters hate healthy people.  That's why Fartbongocare needs to be repealed.  Those socialist bastards want to kill healthy white American women!  It's scandalous

Why do they bury the pertinent facts in a wall of text these days?

For those of you curious for the details but too lazy to wade through the text: "Security official Ibrahim al-Sharaa told The Associated Press that the victim was jogging near the U.S. Consulate at the time of the shooting." And yes, that's all the detail there is.

It's way more dangerous to sell oil for anything but the Petro Dollar in Libya.  You get a stick up your ass and even your grandchildren get blown to pieces.

The headline makes it clear he was "much loved". How much detail do you need?!!?

I'm pretty sure you're thinking of the criminal who has to make just one last big score before he can get out of the lifestyle.

There's nothing wrong with hating religious nutjobs that like to rape little boys and oppress women.  OR are you saying that such things are good?

Jogging around the American anything in Bengazhi sounds like a bad idea.

I heard a snippet about this on the radio this morning. I heard a sentence about jogging near the US consulate in Bengazi and I made the Jackie Chan face.

Sounds like a good guy, but it seems his ideals clouded his judgment.

The Rapeublicans only believe in raping women.  They prefer their manlove to be with other men in airport bathrooms

See what happens when we ignore Bengazhi?  It just keeps killing.

Social experiment time.

Do a GIS for "libya" and see what sorts of images pop up.

Repeat for other major countries.

// Ever since I was a teen, I assumed that Libya was always in, or on the brink of unrest. This assumption was based on what I saw in movies and in random news reports and articles.

Are you saying all Muslims rape little boys and oppress women? Or are you talking about Catholics?

Very sad that a young man lost his life trying to make the world a better place, and sadder yet that the usual suspects will use that death to advance an agenda that makes the world no better and arguably worse.

I seriously doubt he was just a beloved school teacher in Libya.

Look at the dude. He's 33 years old and in top shape. Probably someone who works for one of our intelligence agencies.

Someone who would actually do it for real would be in their early 20s teaching English (and would never do it more than a year at most) or post retirement old man.

SPOILER! Reminds me of the movie "the reluctant fundamentlist". Liev Schrieber keep insisting he's just a dude working on a story and then bam, he's an undercover agent with snipers everywhere and a full blown extraction team on the ready.

Are we through the looking glass, or just standing in front of it?

Are you going jogging outside the embassy?

"Yeah"

We don't need you to do that.

"Okay"

Really?  I got he was married to a British girl, had a son, got his masters at UoTx, may have lived or grew up in MI and I skimmed.  True there was no more detail for the shooting, but sometimes that is all you're going to get.  We don't often get more detail than that here in the states.

There are times we get stories in Flint of a body found in the front yard of a house and we are told nothing else.  If the cops hold back details till they make an arrest, then that is fine.  It isn't like me knowing more is going to bring him back or help in the arrest of the murderer.

It's hard for me to understand why so many of the Americans put themselves in harm's way to help others. I understand why their soldiers go, presumably they are relatively well paid, have the latest equipment, and go to foreign countries with all their friends to go to war. (To help, or protect freedom of course)

But there are people who go to dangerous places to teach or bring aid and they don't have a platoon or a tank or even a gun. They go to bring the light of hope and knowledge to those who need it most, and they do it with full knowledge of the dangers present. With knowledge that definitely exceeds mine and most of those who read this, as I type this on my safe little couch. I salute these people, and I definitely recognize this man's courage in going to a dangerous area to try and help those motivated enough to attend his classes a little knowledge to improve their own situation.

What was he wearing?  Let me guess Shorts and a T-shirt.

Heard of a colonel  jogging around the American Compound in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia back in the mid eighties.  Car drove up the curb to run him over.  He got away.  Lets see shorts and t-shirt out in public in a Muslim country what could possibly go wrong?

Still, sad over the loss

There is sort of a difference between a person who teaches English in a foreign country and a teacher who works for an international school.  The former generally requires no credentials and gets mostly eye rolls from the locals, and the later is a well paid and generally respected position that that requires a college degree.

So, there is no particular reason to believe he is a spook.

Both completely, utterly wrong on all counts. In fact he could have been both a teacher and agent - foreign students open up in class more than you think.

Really? Not enough underpriviledged kids in america to teach? You REALLY HAD to be in Lybia? Nah. Either he was really dense, one of those "im gonna save the world one chemistry class at a time because ive lived a very sheltered life" types, or he was a spy. Cummon, nobody just goes to hang out in Libya without being an idiot or having ulterior motives.
