Meanwhile, Libyan "Militants" Overrun a Special Forces Base

The Special Forces have been reassigned to a Very Special Forces unit.

Also, they're dead.

Well I don't know if they're dead. I actually expect they fled, like Special Forces do.

Anyway.

The Cavalcade of Awesome Foreign Policy continues.

Militant fighters overran a Libyan special forces base in the eastern city of Benghazi on Tuesday after a battle involving rockets and warplanes that killed at least 30 people.

A special forces officer said they had to abandon their main camp in the southeast of Benghazi after coming under sustained attack from a coalition of Islamist fighters and former rebel militias in the city.

"We have withdrawn from the army base after heavy shelling," Saiqa Special Forces officer Fadel Al-Hassi told Reuters.

...

Benghazi has been at the centre of fighting between special forces and ex-rebel fighters of the Benghazi Shura Council who have joined up with the Ansar al Sharia, a militant Islamist group, residents said.

They joined forces? I'd like to see the videotape that caused that to happen.

I don't even know what to say anymore.

Unfortunately, neither does Barack Obama.
